I'd like to see at least two decent maps come out of this so we can pimp the shit outa it and call it the joe.to Halloween map pack.

I think you should think of a couple solid themes and then people can join up and make parts of them, then a couple of us who know what we're doing can piece them together and polish them up.

Like pick two or three things from the list you posted and each person works on one. So one group has a "dark scary barn/farmhouse" with a hidden "dungeon". One person makes the dungeon another makes the barn and then the group works to tie it together.

I guess that would possibly be good though it'd end up being an "ooh look at this" map versus a fun playable one.

It's not hard to work on layout...just put rooms farther out from each other until the CTs can get to the bombsite before the Ts can.

But then again, I don't really care about layout in a super eye-candy map.

I've been working on a halloween map for source for a bunch of weeks now, but for some personal reasons, I didn't have the time at all to continue mapping.
Now that these reasons have been taken care of, I'm planning to continue and finish this map, but I can only start mapping again as soon as I have my PC back. So if you want my help, I'm always willing to participate, wether you want my help or not is entirely up to you :) Let me know if you want a few screenshots, or a few textures.

Good thing I saved all of the textures and the map file itself on a USB stick before my computer crashed... it took me months to make those goddamn spooky textures, and I would have gone nuts if I had lost all of it.

I prefer the idea of having everyone creating a map for halloween: I think it will be a bit hard to organise everyone to create one map together. The challenge will be to finish the maps for october 31st :P
Unless we plan to "release" them a bit later

Yeah the best thing would be for everyone to work on their own map but I wasn't sure if we have enough mappers that are capable of getting a decent map done before Halloween.

If you're stuck for ideas this would make a cool map.

I've been working on an abandoned movie theater map for a while now, and have a few kinks to work out and purdying up to do before I start pimping it out. Definitely need to start getting movie clips for some of the rooms.

My map is gonna take place in my dreamhouse: the haunted, dark, depressing and scary Hang Castle. It's in fact a remake of my very first 1.6 map, except a bit smaller and with better textures and a bit more detail.
But I think it's more gonna be an eye-candy like map instead of a "zomg gameplay on thiz map rulz yo" one. I'll do my best to finish it before Oct 31st
