Ok, I've removed some of the screenshots as this wad only really needs 3, so I just picked out two of the better ones for representation, and then took one of the end of chapter 9, which is the most scenic part of the map.

I'm on to Chapter 10 now and know pretty much what I'm doing. Plus, as I've got time off school and not much to do, I've had plenty of time to map, and so map I have. All of my community contributions are finished, this project is in its final 10th, and then there's just Virus to go. Not sure if I'll get Virus done in time for the end of summer, but I'll do what I can.

Anyway, here's the screenshot:

And yes, the end is on that tower.

Don't worry, it appears that my social life is restricted to about 3 or 4 days a week if I'm realy lucky, because most of the people I know are still in school, so I have an awful lot of time on my hands. To give people an indication of how far along I am, there are only 4 points left to cover on my rather long checklist of ideas for the map, and two of those are already in progress. I'm forcing myself to finish it anyway ;)

I usually have some sort of checklist for my maps as well. It helps keep the project moving along smoothly.

This is the only time I've ever had a written checklist for a project - its also the longest taking "quick map" I've ever made. The only map I've ever made which took longer is Warpzone, and thats because I got bored of its sheer immensity. However, I've been determined to finish this because I've had enough of dropping projects (Water Resource Wad, Takeover and one or two others that never really saw the light of day here).

IMO the best approach to mapping isn't a constant - it varies from person to person :) I think I know what mine is now though, and it definitely isn't gigantic maps :P

Wow. Looks really nice. The crevices in the rocky floor below is a nice touch.

Ok, having fixed up a few problems with running the map full stop, and a few tests, I can safely say that Chapter 10 is nearly done. I need to insert things for about 2/3rds of that section and then sort out the end of the map. Then I can get my final tests done. Day or two from now, it'll be finished :)
