    Looks good. I'll take a look later on when I get home, although I'm not a big fan of arena.

    We should have RC1 out by tomorrow. If I'm lucky, we could have a special guest for a TF2M EU server test!

    It is actually the first Swamp map, as it's first swampy release was a week before the swamp pack came out when it was tested privately.

    I also approve of this map - Looks awesome. Just a shame it isn't suitable for more than 10 people as you say. That would be great!

    That's a huge smiley. :O

    Edit: Oh something about the map now. I already played it a few times, I hope you fixed the darkness over the whole map. :D

    Looking good from the screenshots! I really do like the usage of height - giving both teams more variety with their combat.

    I'll definitely have to play this some time, considering it's the very first Swamp-themed map :)

    i think you might need some more light sources ?
    or let's say it this way: on this picture i can only see (quite global) lights hanging high in the air but no (tiny spot) lights to guide me to the entrance doors/points/openings --> the places i want to run around shooting people

    For RC1, we've been focusing on:

    a) Making the area feel a lot bigger (DONE!)
    b) Making it lighter, whist keeping the 'night-time' feel (NEARLY DONE)
