Collections of Photos to provide inspiration.
I've recently been frustrated with my map, as I have been experiencing a real lack of inspiration for designing my rooms. I know there in no water in NS2, but I have been playing with the idea of making a water treatment plant, something that would be pretty necessary in space. Deciding on this for a theme, I took to google images for inspiration.
I've so far collected 81 photo's, which are a combination of interior layouts, models, ouside shots, general water processing based industrial inspiration for NS2 maps.
I thought I should share these, as they could inspire others, help people who are stuck for ideas, or maybe give more people an inspiration to get into mapping in the first place.
All these images come from google search, some are small, some have watermarks, but they are just there for inspiration, take from them what you will. I plan to add more albums, and more pics to each album, over time.
I have uploaded them all to photobucket for now. If anyone can suggest a better way to share the images, let me know :)
Here are a couple to show the sort of ideas and variations:
Here's the link:http://photobucket.com/NS2MapIdeas
It's set-up in slideshow format to start with, but you can stop it and just browse all photo's if you want.
I hope this inspires you. If you have any collections to share, post them here :)
Edit - I've added an additional 9 screen grabs I took from the magnitika?(sic) video posted a while back by Charlie.
