What are your opinions on Measure-Texture maps? You know, the ones that are orange and gray. People say that they take no skill, and are noobish, but i like making them, and I think they look good. What do you think? Do I continue measure, or go onto textures?
They take no skill and are noobish.
Proper texture placement and adjustment is a skill of it's own. Not only that, but the disgusting orange and grey/black monotony is hard on the eyes.
Over all, that map you posted looks nice - but is horrible thanks to the lack of proper textures.
If you like to make them, then right one. But textureing a map is an art, and a HUGE part of mapping. If you expect to get anywhere in mapping you need to make proper maps. Maps with textures, and models. Most "Dev" maps are model-less and do take no skill.
