Satisfaction of completing a playable map in 11 days.
Plan ahead. Very important to plan every day of what you are going to do.
Read Ebook: "How I finished a map in 11 Days."
Guidelines to follow. Modify to fit your idea:
Idea, Research, Reference, Floor plan and Gameplay Elements.
Lighting, FX, Sound, Optimization
FX, Sound, FX, Optimization and Final Touches
FX, Sound and Final Touches
Pick a simple idea that you can execute. Simple environment, one central location. Notice that simple is not easy. Don't pick an easy idea.
Focus here is to get you outside the comfort zone of your level design abilities and create something new and something you haven't done before.
Make sure to collect references.
We don't want perfect levels here. We want a playable level to be done in 11 days. Lit, textured, with all the game play elements that are required for your idea.
Implement quickly. Get it inside the editor and test.
After deciding what you are going to create, pick a focal point of your map and design around it.
Make progress everyday. Update your WIP thread with images. Best is to update your thread before the day is over. So the following day you can focus on mapping.
