Well this is in the wrong place for this i think. But, Just think of something yourself like something out of other games or movies or just start drawing a bzflag map you wont know where you are going but thats how i get my ideas.

1) Pick an object

2) Think of a number of ways of using that object (it helps to look at some other maps at this stage if you're stuck)

3) Choose one of those ways, and build the whole map around that concept.

For example:

1) Arc

2) Tunnels that make interesting ricochet possibilities

3) A map where you must fight your way though a maze of tunnels to a central cylinder to be King Of The Hill

You can use my example if you want or just try using the formula.
