Mapping community
Posted By: goranDate: 9/27/05 11:52 a.m.

I sometimes feel there's a point you can reach where you can't get better, or at least it seems so. Many years ago, when I was still evolving my skills as mapper I remember I had this thirst for knowledge. I wanted to learn all the tricks in the tutorials,. I wanted to master all there was. One day I had learnt them all, but it didn't stop there. Somehow my brain had been filled with mapping rules and worked up ideas automatically. I didn't need to think, honestly - all ideas came to me as if by magic.

Now it seems my brain has stopped too. The ideas are almost gone, they come in small streams when they do. There's few things to learn. I've almost learnt it all.*

Looking back I do now realise Im in possesion of skills and knowledge that's not covered in older tutorials. I have a sense other mappers are heading in this direction too.

Is there new material ready to be written about marathon mapping - I think so.

Tell me, all learning mappers, would new material and teachings be of interrest?

Why I ask? I'm curious.
