Here are some pictures I found that would be great references for your maps! All photos are property of their specific author. I take no ownership of them.

I'm hijacking this thread. The OP has been inactive since 09'. I'm going to try and keep this a tad more updated.

Though, the best way to get more content is just to browse the last few pages of this topic. I'm working my way backwards, searching through this thread to find valid links/sites. If you have a site to recommend or pictures to share, please, post them here or PM me.



I'm not going to [img] tag pictures from articles.

Neo Tokyo is a futuristic mod for HL2.Google it!Also,I don't think that cat is mummified.It just looks...Like an old dead thing.Makes me sad,reminds me of the mortality of my two fuzzy companions...

Anyway,a lot of these shots are sad yet beautiful.It is sad to see such urban decay,but interesting to see how nature takes them back.And I just have a love for seeing old buildings being destroyed over time like this.

I'm sorry I made you feel sad.

These pictures are great because the HL2 is partly built around making decayed buildings.
