Ah... ok ...I have a good imagination. :ironic2:

I know you do, that's not the problem here. :mrgreen:
But having to imagine things twice (the concept, then how it will render after seeing it broken in UEd), kinda tires the brain, and would be easier if it was WYSIWYG, wouldn't you agree?

I think you should enter it just like it is. Minimalism is in.
You maybe ought to go ahead and add /s to whatever I posted above just to be safe.

Maybe I change it to MH gametype ...it would fit. Or is it already too detailed for MH? :ironic:

Maybe one day I'll enter a mapping contest here.

I still need to break away from my cube mapping skills :ironic:

I'm seriously excited that its a Chaos UT theme. I love the poison arrow and remember the first time I was fragged with it. Hilarious!

Looking forward to testing out and voting on the submissions.

Good luck to you all :)

^ Using a grid as the default texture... that's actually really clever. Very nice idea indeed. :mrgreen:

But yeah, whoever is under impression we're all pro mappers here, they're wrong. There's at most maybe 2 or 3 mappers who will probably stand out with their maps (and I am not one of them for sure), while the rest is as you see thus far. :mrgreen:

First time i´m using them, got the idea from seeing Level Designs in Half-Life 2. I must say it really helps speed up the process :)

Orange one (not a high quality job TBH when i got these and photoshoped them)

Do you know the Rainforest? It's just a herbal bed in my Garden.




I don't have a garden *le sigh*
