    I'm gonna go with Mangy's thread title style, it looks kinda nice. I hope you don't mind.

    Anyway, this is my artpass entry. I regret not going for a more unique theme, but this will have to do.
    I guess it's some kind of a vegetated desert theme with an industrial look, along with some neat sunshower weather.

    And thanks to JoshuaC for some custom models!

    What I have left to do is basically the sound design, some skybox content, some misc detailing and rain particle fixups. (And that oddly lit window at the top left of the screenshot of A.)

    I wish I didn't push so much work to the last week. Been really busy with other things. Oh well, I'll do my best to finish this up!

    Last point looks awesome

    Also, vehicle lifts give great support it seems.

    The stairs in screen 3 don't really seem to fit so well with the concrete ground they're on :mellow:

    Other then that it looks really fantastic!

    Wow, that last point sure is cool. I do think you should brighten it up just a tad and reduce the amount of red a bit.

    I highly approve of A but B is looking awefully bland.

    As for C i'm a little concerned by some of the changes, they seem pretty big. The rules say to try and not change gameplay, but whilst most people have taken this challenge and thrown it against the ropes, the removal of the death pit is pretty significant.

    Am I the only one that thinks C is awful bathed in such an inordinate amount of red, or has nobody else actually looked at the pictures and just sees Acegikmo's name and a lot of detail and assumes it's the best thing since sliced bread.

    Or you could be civil and say:
    "I think C has too much red in it. I think adding or removing some colour would benefit the final point."

    There is no need to be a dick about it.

    The death pit is still there. It's just a bit harder to fall down :)

    As for B, I'm not sure what to add. It is slightly more detailed in the most recent version, but I haven't managed to get the skybox to compile properly for it to take a neat picture.

    I honestly have no idea why you have been acting so hostile towards me lately. :(
    What have I ever done to provoke you? If so I'd really like to know about it, instead of posting comments like these.

    It really looks nice, and I admit I'd give up immediately if I was participating in the contest.

    But I'm not.

    Also I get a Casino vibe from the Spytech areas, as you saw me say in the chat.

    Stop being so good at this and just go get hired or something. You're making the rest of us look bad. Go work on Photic, you butt.

    This is my feeling about the whole map.

    A? Red brick and red brick and red brick with a grey concrete ground and a grey sky. No interesting architectural shapes.

    B? Red brick again, but the surroundings are all grey buildings. With grey ground. And grey sky.

    C? Red red red red red red red. And some grey in that upper area.

    The screenshots feel so drab, like the map has no life. It's like Well but there's no color and nothing interesting, however cool the wet, reflective concrete might be. :(
