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.

Some Of Mine: 
Abandoned Places is the old standby for the rotting industrial sites of Belgium:

Modern Ruins expands on those themes to include sanitariums, prisons, and boatyards in and around new york state and pennsylvania:

This guy has tons of travel photos featuring architecture from around Europe and the world:

Buffalo Architecture and History has features on hundreds of buildings located in Buffalo, NY, and information on major architectural movements embodied by those buildings: 
Metl - For The Last Time, Quit This Title Cannot Be Empty Crap 
I found this:

It has photos of Conwy, so it must be good.

And Not Forgetting... for days when urbanadventure.orgis stressed out.
Out of curiosity, what stuff do you people look at most, and is there anything not there that you'd be interested in me aquiring?
Glad you like the web site. 
we're looking at fotos of abandoned places like plants, factories, wastes, etc. just to get some inspiration. the first site i found ages ago was henk's apandoned places. but that's not enough for our greedy appetite. so we're still looking for the new sites with loads of photos of industrial objects.
of course these sites aren't our primary food supply, we seek for inspiration everywhere. but these sites gives us little help anyway. 
i know i'm adding to your list of todo (or maybe not, i know you're a good coder) but do you wanna make this a section or sticky (bit like texture sites). i think its worth it imho
99.99% of people i'm sure are interested in architecture.
0.001 are interested in burnt 
I've been viewing alot of Doom 3 screenshots and I'm more amazed than ever. I may build a high end machine just for this game... I'd been thinking to just go with 1Ghz cause that'd suit me - but with Doom 3 coming out.. this is like, history.. So I'll probably bump up those specs.

But anyway, I'm inspired to work on some textures for Q1. I'm sure I can do it, I'm already good with PS (not to brag). So what would you guys like to see and use in your maps? 
Anything that incorporates most or all of these characteristics: Dark, gritty, fantasy, surreal, evil.

Art Noveau 
I have found this style very inspiring of late. 
Rorshach's recent "ivory" texture set got me thinking along art nouveau lines recently. I don't think it's going to happen until ... oh, who am i kidding? it's never going to happen :P 
I always wanted to recreate top towers of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral... 
Ya Speedy...

Nice Pics 
Hey Guys 
What's going on in this thread 
i always see this phrase.

ok, you just using a different name to wind us all up. 
Machu Picchu 
The ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu in Peru serves as a nice reference for stone ruins. It reminds of Koohoo and Uzul.

Since I don`t know of a specific site that has lots of good pics, I`ll just link to a Google image search for "Machu Picchu". 
Re:phait Textures 
I want plastic textures: bright, shiny. Sick of Dark, gritty, evil. Old.
