I'm in IT at an old psych hospital, and came across a set of floor plans, thought they could make for a potentially decent map.

Maybe using one of the units as a map, or multiple units. The hospital is a converted hunting lodge, fairly large, basement has offices and loading dock, first floor is admissions, cafe and units, 3rd floor is only on one side of the building consisting of management, and a small 4th floor for the overnight doctors.

I can scan them if anyones interested in them for a map. I'd do it myself, but I can't seem to map for the life of me. Tried, and failed on several occasions, and now when I load up one of my old maps, Hammer decides that I'm out of RAM for some reason, and crashes/closes.

Uh well, what a coincidence. I was thinking about a new version of hdn_psychiatry for a long time now since the map didn't turn out to be what i had in mind. I searched for images of plans but with little success, it's not that easy to find suitable layouts.

So yeah, i'd be interested in what you have there, perhaps it even is what i'm looking for. :)

Cool, I'm having them sent out for replication and shrinkage, I'll see if I can have the company give me a CD with the images or something on them, or I'll just scan them myself.

I'll let you know when I get em.

Wait... what the hell? A psychiatric hospital that used to be a hunting lodge!?

Yeah... that borders on being a tad weird. When you get the scans, please do post some.

Here we go folks. As I promised. The former hunting lodge now psych hospital.

They are very large/high res.

It's really big. Maybe if someone just uses a section of it? The first floor is giant, and that's an understatment.

ya, the first floor is fairly large. it consists of 3 psych units, a medical storage area, cafeteria, admissions, doctors hallway administration and front lobby.

I was always thinking that the unit with the enclosed activity yard would be cool. The yard is fairly large 40x20 and a rod iron fence around with that stands about 15ft tall.

Seems like an awesome idea but it is a huge map.

This looks like a pretty good hex map. You just gotta block off a lot of the not-so-needed rooms/halls and leave the hallways in between...

Well, this is really huge for a map. For a hex-map it might be okay, but if you do a normal HDN map, you have to use parts of it, or combine some of the floors, othervice it will be just boring ;)
