I have had an idea ever since I started making maps with VALVe's SDK...
I live in a small city called Höör in Scania/Sweden. Why not make a map of the city I live in! And a few days ago I got the idea, why not make the city I live in.. a zombie infested city!?
I also want to create two maps of the city, one before the infection (The Sun shines and it's midday and maybe in some dark spots in the town, there will be some zombies) and one after (The Moon shines and it's midnight, lots of zombies are on the streets).
Not really sure how the map itself will play out, because it's a city, you can go everywhere! However it will be a big city to make in Hammer and I don't think I will be able to make all in one map, but I will think about how I will work that out. I have to brainstorm about that.
And probably the only apartment that will look exactly like it does in real life, is my own apartment. But I will see what I can come up with, because I want to make this map look like it does in real life.
Or I will make a map of a smaller city where two of my best friends live in, Tjörnarp, outside the city I live in.
Also I will be using google maps/google earth mostly.. and the pictures of Tjörnarp seems better than those of Höör. And half of the pictures of Höör is messed up, don't know why. :/
As always, all comments/criticism are welcome.
PS. I don't really know if I should posting this here, but I don't have a blog or anything like that..
EDIT: I probably won't make a map since it's too much work and require lots of work getting all the buildings and roads right..
