  • Vanity Map: Concept

    I posted yesterday about the GateWay map concept, but there is something else I have found surprising that mappers don't do.

    The Vanity Map!

    You can put pictures in a map. You could make a big hall or room with photos on the wall.

    I played around with this briefly because I thought it would be cool to have made an eSx map that was like a hall displaying the different members, have a clubhouse or something.

    You know, something cool, something funny, something over the top.

    I also thought another good idea would be to make a map that outlined the history of Quake like a museum.

    But, an idea that I think people would pay money for is the vanity map. Stick pictures of family photos in them, a family tree or who knows what.

    I did this in 5 minutes and I suck!



    Some mappers can make castles with chairs and do it easy

    Would you want the inside of this place ...



    ... to be decked out as your were the king? Would you show it to your friends?

    Would you pay $30-$50 for a really cool map customized just for you, even knowing that maybe the castle or throne room or whatever with huge pictures of each member of your family on the wall was being used for dozens of other maps for other people and the mapper just pasted in your family's pics and changed the engraving at the entrance of the castle to be your family name ?

    $1-$10 if anything. Its just a Map for a game. No need to spend big buck$ on it. Does sound like an interesting idea, however. We could make a map for every clan and put pictures of each clan member on the wall.

        I have no map making skills. I can play around and that's about it.

        I think I'd pay for something like this if it were really cool.

        I also like the idea of a Quake History Museum map where you can walk around the map and see the history of Quake.

          The first wave of new maps that came out contained a lot of porno pics in them. The slide maps are an excellent way to see how new textures and even animated billboards can be inserted into a map courtesy of Singe (who created artifact after trying the runes in ctf) and Griff (who did all the artwork with him).
