Hey people,

                   I am currently creating my first ever custom zombies map I am also making youtube videos from start to finish about updates and to ask for ideas for the map. First video -

So I was hoping to ask on here for some Ideas as well, and to me before starting a map you need a name and I am having a Very hard time thinking of one, so I was wondering If someone could help me out and if I pick the name you give I will place your name in the map as a devloper :) Thanks for having a read guys and if you decide to help thanks for helping :D

Well for your first map you should try make a small, kinda basic map. Just so you can an idea of how things work or what you could work on. And than when you want to move on, I'd create a map for a location or somewhere you have always wanted to play in.

I agree with what @Rissole25 mentioned about the size. Don't try and overcompensate. If it's your first map, don't go overboard. Do what Treyarch did. Experiment with small environments, such as buildings and small outside areas, then expand when you're confident.

In regards to the name, try and think outside of the box. Making the name of the map German is a little unoriginal, so if I might make a suggestion, don't go with a German version of "_____ of the Dead/Undead". Think of what themes you are trying to present in the map, and try and mold the name around that.

Unfortunately, I can't speak from experience. We do however have a few members who have created their own maps. Ask them questions. Check out Custom map sites and hit up the forums you find there. You can never have enough resources. Good luck with your creation. I hope it works out well for you.

My only advice from playing a lot of custom maps is, make it as you'd want it... will there be a camp spot? choice of training areas

 

Good luck, can't wait to check it out
