    Absoultely loved this map. I think alot of that had to do with the architecture as said - superb. There are some really nice touches to the design. Nothing stood out as problematic - though i need to play more. I seemed to get bogged down in the middle alot - although half the time I was running about going 'ooo nice brushwork :p'

    VOIIIDD...? You serious? D: I mean, not that your map is bad or anything, but i suggest making as much as possible different 'ideas' before finalizing everything. Don't think the map plays well before you've done enough tests/edits/.... Take a look at cornfield (and maybe - sorry, no offense - scoville?) as an epic example of detail-before-good-gameplay. :bored:

    In 6v6 and 12v12 PUG play. This map needs to be tested with comp players like the guys on the killingjoke server before any of us can say that.

    Are you suggesting that comp players will find a way to ruin this map?

    Comp players have a higher chance of exposing flaws and abuses than regular pug play. Particularly with CTF, where the round never resets for the duration of the map, you don't want any situation where, given roughly even skill levels, the first team to do X dominates the other for the rest of the round.

    I said detailing not beta. Alphas will stay around for a while. Don't worry. I'm just going to make the finalized areas pretty. :D

    Void has asked me to make him an intelligence model for ctf_wiretap, so here's a little teaser:

    I'll be showing textures in just a little while once they are finalized.

    Your ceiling lights need only 2 ambient light sprites, not 3. 3 of them looks strange.
