    The best is combining the blisses of custom maps and custom scripts. Talk about playing god.

    I have made many a level soley for the purpose of using my cruel ideas for torturing bots.

    I do because......

    I just want to make something beautiful in my time and this seems a good start. I'm 15 and have already made around 29 unfinished maps, each with something i love. 1 certain area that I sit in awe staring at in different views about how i made it. I prefer to map to amaze myself and just enjoy the idea of filling emptiness with something.

    But, above all, I just wanna make something that when everyone sees it, they recognize talent. Something that when you enter the level and start to walk around you stop at parts, just to look at what was made. Everytime I start a map like this, I barely work for 2 weeks and finish 1 room. Then I get bored and need a new theme and map. I guess a mapper's dread is the creativity that keeps him mapping.

    So I had nothing to check cause all I want to do is make something really really impressive. Not to be god, or prove myself better then someone, but just to make some inkling of beauty.

    Oh, and lastly I want to try to make a map so brilliant it helps to revitalize the UT mapping community. Cause lately we have kind of hit a bust in the mapping area, very few outstanding maps have come our way and I'm waiting for the UT Nirvana to come along and change the face of mapping. Maybe it can be me :D

    My hand not only moves the mountains they make the mountains... I give and take life, for it is mine to give; my hand carves the land and makes the trees. There will be no light if I do not add light, and will be no water if I do not desire to add it... And with my will alone I can make heavenly music play across the land, for all to hear... Without those like my self the gaming world would be non-existent.

    seeing your name in the map selection menu :D

    having others play your creation. it's pretty satisfying
