Hello everyone! My name is Curtis, but my nickname that I kept since I was 8 is "Mac". I am a big fan of sci-fi and anything to do with technology and space. When time permits, I love playing games... If I had to choose which style of gaming is my favorite, I couldn't say. I would put RTS, 1st-person, and RPG as the top 3, but I suppose that covers a good percentage of all the games! What I also really like to do on my spare time is create maps for pc games, mainly for the C&C series but sometimes for the AoE series - I can thank RA95 for this map-building addiction! I don't have any experience with modding, though. Lately (as in the last few years, off & on, when I have time) my time for playing has been devoted to building maps for C&C3;. Why this game? Because this game has a such an awesome mod that I have great respect for and thoroughly enjoy... It's called: Tiberium Essence.

Hello everyone, as you can see I am recently a new member to moddb and I am looking forward to sharing ideas as well as some works with people. Before, I've just been viewing and reading the forums as a guest, but now I feel it's time that I actually become a member :) I think this will be fun as it'll be a great way to get to find and know comrades who share the same interests as I, such as the C&C series, but more noteably, Tiberium Essence for C&C 3...
Ok, now to some business...
I have recently uploaded several images of maps that I created to be played for C&C3/Tiberium Essence (or other mods). My intention is to some time in the near future release these to the public, whether that be to coincide with Carnius' next version of his mod or maybe sooner, depending how long it takes, haven't quite decided; for a while they've just been sitting on my hard-drive collecting dust and that's less fun :)
As many of you may have noticed, most of these maps are indeed remakes from originals, mostly from Tiberian Sun, but also RA95, RA2, and even Supreme Commander. When I have more time, I will post descriptions and their names for each image later. Now, about their names/titles, I do have a question for you. For all of the remakes, I currently have "name of map" followed by "II" (representing that it is a sequel/remake from a previous game). Which do you guys suggest is more professional and flows better: Should I leave the "II" on the titles or take them off? For example, from Tiberian Sun, "Grassy Knoll II" or just "Grassy Knoll". My concern is that there will be lots of "II"s :)
I hope you guys like what you see so far (I know, sorry the images are small), but these maps are detailed. Sooner or later, but hopefully sooner than later, I will upload 3 maps for you C&C3 fans to try out; these will be the re-workings (drastically improved) of the 3 that I uploaded many years ago on Lion's cncden.
Again, thank you for welcoming me, and I will talk to you guys again later!
