How much would you charge for custom maps



  • I don’t have time to build maps, but I would be curious to how much some poor high school students who are whizzes would charge to build a map to my specifications.



  • A thousand.

    Of anything.



  • A grand total of $0.00

    I hope that’s enough for people.



  • @lemonater47:

    Yeah but then it would never get finished, or it would take too long.



  • 20-30 € / hour seems common in this branch. If it’s supposed to be professional.



  • How much are you thinking and what gametype? I’d charge maybe $7.00 an hour. I’m working on a custom map atm, and I’m going to upload some pictures soon once the lightmass is done building.

    Well in the US students make around $12 per hour. It would depend on how many hours it took to make a map.

    I would only be interested in a TO map using the standard game but with interactive features that made a much more fun tactical map. Everyone has different skills but I would pay a fixed fee $250 for a fully featured custom map.

    I mention high school students because they have more free time and the money means more than a working professional.



  • After i sharpen my skills with the current map i am making, i am quite interested in doing this. It would be great to have some more money so i could buy a new PC. I play chiv on a potato and get 30 frames max :3

    Here are the photos of the map I’m making atm. The lighting on the lanterns actually work, but not in the LTS verson (which I took the photos in)

    Yeah I saw it, looks very good. Anyway more on this once I work on the specification.



  • I have a developer, once I finish the specification I will post it to get feedback.

    $12 an hour hell. Is that your minimum wage? That’s tons.



  • 12 bucks an hour? O.o geez is that what non-programmers get paid? LOL. My friend working at Box gets 35/hr…rofl.



  • I doubt I would work for 12$ as a freelancer lol

    A clannie, up to him if he wants to take responsibility.

    I’m very busy right now, so its going to be a few weeks before I finish the spec and I want to get it as perfect as possible - lots of detail.

    But I will post it for feedback as I finish each objective.
