sorry to ask a stupid question, but some images look like actual sets/maps, last image of previous post (#32), looks too good to be just a photo. Can you tell me which is a photo and which are maps? http://forums.duke4.net/public/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif

Pic 3 seems to be a model render, the ninth shot, the last two thumbnails and all the 3 from the second post do are computerized images don't know if they're actually from a map or something. The rest are real photos.

Thanks man! I love the ninth! The last thing I want is to 'remake' something from another game, so if it is computerized, it's hopefully save to work on it. http://forums.duke4.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif

Not sure if this counts for inspiration, but I am working for stuff in England; and England claims to have lot of ghosts, sample
http://www.flickr.co...gari/476235765/

ghosts in Japan
http://izismile.com/...ts_11_pics.html

and a map with ghosts, has to have a story, so here are some from

For the map I am working on right now, I am drawing a limited amount of inspiration from Clock Tower 3.
http://images.wikia.com/clocktower/images/c/c3/PanicMode.png
http://www.playstation-psx-xbox.com/file/3_74.jpg

Though how it converts to what I am doing may not make it immediately obvious.

I have plans for a later project which will draw more inspiration from my favorite game, Haunting Ground.

http://images.eurogamer.net/assets/articles/a/5/8/8/2/0/a_med_1.jpg
http://images.wikia.com/clocktower/images/a/ae/PanicMode.PNG

Though I am not sure I will have the skill and ability to actually pull this off and wether I even try depends on the success or failure of my upcoming project. Still, by all mens, draw inspiration from them if you wish.

Another thing I draw inspiration from is the town aroud me, I literally sit on Google Street View and look around my city, usually to decide what textures to use and what shape to make a building. Just type Hull, United Kingdom into Google. I also keep meaning to attempt to map the bridge.

Creative mapping and Polymer lighting will take you far, but for that extra bit I think custom textures will be needed to get the look you are after.

I know you're familiar with my WIP Graveyard TC. It was originally going to be a haunted mansion like your pics but my mapping skills were not up to the task of detailing so much stuff inside the mansion. So I opted for a cemetary with some crude underground passages and rooms instead. I am very happy with how its turning out but I still miss doing a mansion map.

Good luck with yours.

I've found really great source of inspiration for my current project, so i think it would be nice to share with you :( It is whole page dedicated to abandoned buildings. Here's the link:

http://www.opuszczone.net/galeria

It's polish site, but there isn't too much content in polish, all you need to know that Fotogaleria means Photogallery, and if you want to know what the place is, you can use google translator :( It has some really nice objects there!

Nice pics. I have never had problems with inspiration. I've just been getting tired of building fairy quickly resulting in MANY unfinished maps. I still have ideas for at least ten killer mods - but lack of free time and mostly lack of power to build are the problems. And after months of building, coding and editing only a small group of people will play it. It feels then like I've wasted few months of my priceless lifetime. I've been making maps for myself with a motto: want to play in a cool locations - do these locations yourself :-/

Sorry for the heavy bump. But Tiltan College, games development floors are my new inspartion for a mini level or a part to my map/s. Its looks like animation floors but believe me it's the game dev section. I was with stress and mis out many posters and stuff of their games. Here: https://www.facebook...72413812775600/

If this post its not OK please delete him. Im only say my inspartion of one of the colleges in the world.

Sorry for bumping an old thread, but I think this whole topic is really interesting and might be quite useful.

I work in the wind tunnel where we mostly check wind loads on high-rise buildings (it is quite literally a blow-job...), so I get to work with many real-life urban layouts. Just yesterday I thought this might go well with Duke maps, so I'm dropping some photos. It could be interesting to see a diferent approach - the models need to only recreate shapes, so people can base their maps just on the layouts in the terms of shapes, heights etc. of the buildings, but as they're pretty much blank, the choice of textures can be left completely unbiased to the author's imagination. If anyone would be interested, I can provide more pictures or perhaps even Sketchup models for some of these. It's mostly centre of Warsaw and centre of Birmingham.

Thanks for the heads-up, again it seems to be some problem with imgurl security certificate. I'm reuploading a bunch if anyone would be interested in them.
