    It used to be in the center but people said move it to the side so its the same distance as the other side.

    IMO, the outside of the map doesn't need any more detail. It'd eventually contribute to the FPS hit and just wastes time that could be spent testing and mapping.

    I just added a couple of displacements in the outside area, nothing too big that will kill the fps.

    Hi. Just tried the map in my server today, and maybe cap speed is a bit too slow. With few people playing, it is hard to get the timers running.

    First time I comment on a map, so take my impression with a huge grain of salt. =)



    EDIT: Sorry for reviving this thread, as stevethepocket says, without the map's author, it is useless.

    The guy behind this map is banned. No sense adding any more feedback. In fact, we should probably lock this thread.

    General douchbagery. He refused to accept feedback on his maps, instead insulting anyone who gave it to him.

    Just read through this thread and see for yourself. But to sum it up, he was repeatedly condescending and/or hostile towards the people who offered suggestions on how to improve his map. It's one thing to not accept criticism (although it flies in the face of what this site was created for), but the way he did it crossed a line.
