    Map Ideas Discussion

    Hi there!


    Here you can share ideas for maps and arenas; we're interested in layouts and particular areas. If you can provide sketches we welcome them, but descriptions can do.

    We don't really need ideas like "map on a plane" and "maze in pyramid"; we've got plenty of those. If you can support them with thoughts on what makes the map unique gameplay wise, or how the layout should be, or just 1 particular detail you'd really like to see in any map (like a mechanic such as slimeblocks).

    If you provide a good idea and manage to explain it to us, you may just see that idea on our next mappack :)

    Im gonna suggest a murder map

    Silent Forest
    Couple of Groups were Invinted to go Camping in some place far away in a forest,but unexpectedly that there's a Murderer among them.

    The map has Tents and fire place for the main area,and it goes with Paths more deeper into the woods,with alot of Rivers,and if we keep on going,there'll be a Mysterious Cave and the cave connects to a waterfall which is the source of the river,There's also an abandoned factory and some toxic waste was thrown into the river (Slimeblocks maybe :0 )

    Oh and also @Absol1991 Dat idea seems familiar,like a map suggested by someone *Cough cough* Frozen shelter?

    Backyard/Playground (Whichever sounds better)
    A small house (I don't think you should be able to go inside) made of wood or brick and a porch made of stone.
    The backyard has a swing set, sandbox, slide, those like tube things that you walk in (you usually see them at big parks)
    a pool, monkey bars, basically an entire playground like thing.
    There is a small rounded spooky forest near the edge of the map.
    A lake would be in the forest, as well as fallen trees and some spooky noises!
    The secret places would be hidden in the playground!
    There would be a secret button that you press, maybe in the sandbox. When you press it, it gives you enough time to
    go down the slide and into a secret place. You get out by walking through the tunnel
    and coming out in the lake in the forest.
    The other would be located on the edge of the house maybe?​

    I like the idea of having a GIANT ROOM, and in the fridge there'd be cheese with holes in you could hide in, and similar to clue, you could push a button to drop, and there's huge people, making food, sat on the bed, etc, and maybe poisonous plants, Like cacti, Sorry if anyone else had the same idea, maybe we could collaborate on ideas? <3

    Or maybe Alice in wonderland themed, not many details on this one, but just though it'd be cool

    Do nuketown from BO3 as a downgrade map and possibly sky jacked as a skywars map with the middle being the plane/helicopter/airbase and then islands all around it. What do you think?

    Frozen Forest/Landscape:
    A mysterious geomagnetic storm has brought your plane crashing down into the Northern Canadian wilderness, and as everyone tries to survive, food running low, one person fears the worst, and believes the only way to survive is to resort to cannibalism.

    Map layout: First and foremost... It's basically a frozen forest, with a couple scattered cabins and train tracks, the mountain contains a couple of natural caves used to shelter you from the wilderness, the trees, ground, and everything else would be covered in snow, there is a watch tower used to detect fires in a small patch of treeless land in the forest... I'm going to get straight to the point, basically what I'm asking is for a map from The Long Dark, I do have a couple of pictures of concept art as well if it helps.

    Mystic caverns

    A cave system of up and downs, lefts and rights, with plants, and some people wanted to see it for themselves. The thing they didn't know, was that someone was waiting for them. >:3

    Please remember that when you're posting in this thread they we aren't looking for themes, but are looking for layout ideas or interesting map mechanics. If your post is just a theme idea, it will be deleted.

    Honestly, I would love some sort of creepy setting in a toy factory. There could be a big room, shelves which divides it up so you can't fully see everywhere, separate rooms which could have some exits to where trucks pick up toys as hiding spots, control rooms and all that. Maybe some walk ways above it that stretch out, though a few are broken so you still can't see the whole place. We have a lot of amazing murder maps, but so far I haven't found anything that can be regarded as truly 'spooky', Mansion being the only close one so far, in my opinion.

    Murder map of the csgo map Inferno?
    I thought it would be a good idea since its a big map and seems good for the game "Murder"

    If I work on a Murder map in Single Player and send it as a screenshot, will it have *any* chance of becoming an actual Murder map?

    How about a Steam-Punk-esque Type of City.

    There could be propellers keeping the city up, an Air-Ship dock and an Air-ship that you could go on to. Nothing much, but it's an idea that seems cool.
