Added a link to my general walk through tutorial video on sketchup. It's not the best video but I hope it helps all the other lil peeps out there that want to make quick layouts!

good to hear. Hopefully in the future once I get a bunch down I can start looking at peoples layouts and helping them to make them better. I guess sort of as a layout consultant or something :P maybe? ^^

I like the water tower sniper idea. If you ever get round to doing it, and you do it in HL2, you should probably signify the snipers existence by setting up a few triggers, essentially making a rebel run round a corner and get his brains blown out. A few other rebels are now hugging the corner, and when the player gets near he states something like. "Well, if you've got to get through, I'd suggest you stay low."

interesting idea.. but that sewer is one curvaceous sewer! Usually sewer systems are more organized in layouts of cities.

Would still make a nice map though.

For a random layout idea, it think it really cool, and there has been a lot of thinking about it,
also like you use Google SketchUp to create your 'concept art'. They idea of the map is really cool, you did create enough detail in the maps, but not to much. The idea of the way to let a player walk a part for 2 times is smart, to create some more gameplay in the same part of the level. Keep the good work up!

Great work Generalvivi! You win the internets for .0000000314 seconds

Seriously, keep up the great work!
I would be cool if you made some underground layouts too, like some bunker system or research facility.
