    I start maps like it's nothin, but finishing is the hardest thing to do yet that's what pushes me further. And I like to show off my stuff to my frends who map like noobs, hehe

    It took god 7 days to finish the world and even with all this technology and software he still beats me!!!

    No I don't like sniper maps very much,but still ,lets say it has been done good,or crappy,you should judge it on the map,or don't judge it bad just because you don't like those big ass things.
    I actualy hate those maps,because if you took out the teleportes it becomes useless.

    boy. I'm a bit late on this. Thank you Kantham.
    I map because UED is my anti-drug. I'm anal-compulsive and I have a very pronounced masochistic tendency.
    I never finish anything anymore. I always wind up learning so much with each map that I want to constantly start over (I typically start the same map from scratch at least twenty times) and then I eventually get stuck trying to do something impossible with the current engine.... :mad:
    (ok prolly not impossible, just beyond my skillz.... but I like to blame the technology. ;))

    phew, ...i ...am ...not... alone ... . .. .... . ... . . :eek:

    i think mapping contests with a strict focus and limitations are good ideas for a lot of peeps - it's worked for u mango, your published product has usually been the result of a competative push - given a short-term goal and constraints, u seem to do pretty well - and cleaning up things afterwards is always easier (ala "][" etc - perhaps it's time for another comp-o, eh?
    :D

    #4 - i have a social life, but the abuse bit fits, that must be it ...

    I map because...

    One day my friend and I were playing Face and we had volitile ammo on. I kept shooting the rockets above the opening when he went in his tower and it killed him most of the time. I wanted to put more rockets up their and tried to figure out the editor but couldn't and my freind said you couldn't add more things to maps. Later (ok, about 2 1/2 yrs later) I thought I would make another pass at learning the editor because I had already mapped for some strategy games. I looked at tutorials all over the internet and alot of other stuff and started making stuff. This was also because I wanted to get more people at the LAN parties I go to to play UT some instead of Quake III: Arena. What keeps me mapping is that 1.Houences and CliffyB have inspired me and 2.I'm addicted to mapping and am learnig new things every day about it. I'm currently making 2 maps at the same time and redoing my first major n00b map.
