[07/27/21 update: Two new netmap templates added, both with pre-prepared textures, shading, and sounds -- one which is used to create NEFX netmaps, another which can be used for giant maps.] I use pre-prepared templates to make a lot of NEFX maps and I felt it was time to pass them along for anyone else's use.
One of these is used to create many NEFX netmaps, and is a room of 700 1-WU square polygons with pre-textured walls, ceilings, and floors, differential shading, item spawns, and sounds.
Another one is similar but spanning the entire possible map, and may be used for solo maps. Of course, you may want to delete some of the squares.
The oldest one is the same as the second one except unfilled and not configured.
Two new map templates added, one used to make NEFX netmaps and another for future solo maps.

Kinda surprised these maps didn't accidentally teleport you all over the place. If you read the Forge manual it sort of explains this bug that if there are too many lines that are completely parallel to each other you get teleported away. Happens to me all the time and you get away with this! Lol!
Best Template Ever

Runs very well on all computers. Gets a solid 12 fps on a mac pro. Excellent 4 custom Yuge maps. Great for whenever you really just don't want to make maps look modern and want that sort of "Budget Wolfenstein" feel. Seriously though, there are very few practical uses for this. Just keep making similar templates to turn into satirical jokes Adminn_1.

Create the Adminn_1 Lighting Template.
Creating custom lights are a pain, so if you created a map with every room being a class of light and every polygon is a variation of that class: Smooth changing lights, strobe lights, flashing lights, flickering lights, lightning and lights used to control liquid levels it would be incredibly useful.
You could import the lights to each new level with the Copy & Paste tool and save your self hours of time.
I appreciate the effort, but . . .

This really isn't a good idea. "Too many vertices in a line" errors ahoy!
Besides, while square-block maps are occasionally nice for nostalgia and as a stylistic change, there isn't call for enough of them to warrant a template.
The line tool is just as easy to use as the fill tool. This template does not make life easier for novices at all.

To any potential mapmakers: Please don't do what Adminn is doing. Learn to map properly.
