Inspiration & Reference
I just wanted to know if people had any links to good websites for either level design inspiration (photos, paintings, concept art, etc.) or just for architectural reference. We had a thread like this on the old qmap, but we know how much good that does us.

Really Wonderful Cave Photo

Notice the two tiny helicopters down at the bottom to get a sense of the scale.

nice pic, but your caption is kinda werd 
Let's Build An Extraterrestrial 
Lots Of New Temple Ruins And More: 
Stuff From Berlin 
http://www.quaddicted.com/stuff/pics/my/uselesspicsforfunc/

The spiky thing is something in the Viktoriapark between Berlin-Kreuzberg and Berlin-Sch´┐Żneberg. I think it looks pretty cool, maybe you like it too.

The red building is the Zitadelle Spandau, a citadel in Berlin-Spandau. Had a rather boring visit there but I thought I could make some photographs for you mappers. :) 
 
heh, that spiky thing looks a lot like one quake concept sketch i did a couple of years ago. :)
wasn't supposed to become a church/monument, though. 
Anthroposophisch 
A building in souther Germany called Goetheanum.

Google for more pics of it and it's burned older brother (the rounder one).

Nice Place ! 
Seamless Textures 
Yeah But They're All Terribly Ugly And Useless 
Just random generated swirly patterns in all the colors of the rainbow.
Useless for mapping.

Did I say it has to be used "as is" ? 
Several Dozen Castles Of Wales 
Wales 
Cool I live in wales, the only one Ive been to is Rhuddlan castle though, denbighshire is actually nw and not north east as the website says :o 
Browsing Through 
the pages, I find the more they lie in ruins, the more inspiring the castles are. 
Nice Abandoned Stuff 
Camobodia/angkor 
uploading photos from Cambodia atm, I'm really tired and the connection is pretty slow now so I probably will stop in the middle of the process and continue some other day. 
Hmm 
Seems like there will only be material taken before going to Angkor today. 
Underground Submarine Base 
That's A Pretty Cool Base 
Shame they didn't go the whole hog and have the entrance underwater though!

I noticed that if you click the 'Industrial' Journal tag link on that page there's loads of other entries full of the kind of rusty decaying stuff that usually get us quite excited :)

Also, I once spent six weeks on an archaological dig at Carew Castle in Wales. My knees have never been the same since. I am quite surprised by how few of those photos have sheep in them. 
Rusty Relics, Modern Ruins 
http://www.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/content/photogallery/gallery_076/index.shtml - Raskat launch pad for Energiya rocket with Russian Buran space shuttle (area 110, Baikonur cosmodrome, 29 March 2006)

http://www.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/content/photogallery/gallery_077/index.shtml - UKSS universal complex launch pad (stand) for Energiya rocket (area 250, Baikonur cosmodrome, 29 March 2006)

The Energia rocket used same components as the Russian Buran space shuttle, just without the shuttle. It was launched only once - in 1987 for the Polyus space battle station. That failed. The Buran shuttle only flew once, in 1988, succesfully, without a crew and did an autonomous landing on a runway.

The big pipes are crew and personnel escape tubes, I think. 
Maunsell Army Sea Forts 
Omg 
 
A large collection of someone's travel photography. Includes cambodian temples, english churches, italian stucco, turkish minarets etc.

Baikonur 
Bruges 
I've posted some photos of my weekend in Bruges on my site, maybe they can inspire some people, quite a bit of red brick houses and gothic-ish churches...
