    Making yet another new map, this one is called "Lobby" and is based on this image of a Mexican hotel:


    Anyway, seeing as I have a profound love for scavenge I even wrote a small theory for the map:
    Scavenge Mapping Theory

    Base Game:

    • The Survivors should be given choice over the equipment they use:
      • The Spawn should have T3 weapons and 2 different types of T2 Melee Weapon.
      • The Spawn should have Adrenaline and Pain Pills
      • There should be a T1/T2 Weapon near 4 Gas Cans
      • There should be a (T3 - Katana etc etc) melee weapon near 2 of the Gas Cans.
      • There should be 2 "refill stations" with a T3 Weapon, Ammo pile, pills and a throwable

    • Cans should be spaced and easy to reach, it should also be easy to memorise the path to them
      • The easiest locations should have 1 can, the hardest should have a maximum of 3
    • Survivors should have at least 2 tactics for fetching the gas cans
      • Throw-Down
      • Hand Delivery
      • The hardest sets should require the Survivor to make more than one trip and should avoid using the Throw-Down method
    • There should be a fairly large amount of vertical play, allowing the use of the "Throw-Down" method and to give the infected an advantage over the Survivors.

      • There should be a level that the survivors can not reach, like a roof.

    Anyway, Screenshots so far:

    Who knows? I might actually finish this one, we'll see.

    Sounds interesting.
    Where abouts are you planning on putting the car though?

    It won't be a car, but it will probably be inbetween the pool and the nearest ledges.

  7. For a second there I thought the first pic was the map you had made :3

    I'll be checking back here for updates!
  8. It better not look as artificial as the photo(?) :P

    Mall Atrium has something different about each floor (holes in the floor, barricades, restricted bits, shops etc.) and that makes it awesome.
