    The main interior spaces have ceilings much brighter than they need to be. Hatch area, middle warehouse. Here's a shot of Mannhattan's hatch area. There's two reasons why ceilings often end up dark - one, lights have reflective cones that focus the entire output of the bulb in a single direction, making them more efficient, and two, because players don't need to look there.

    You should also try to have lights shine onto walls. It can create some really nice effects. There's a bit of this happening by the grinder in your map, but there's props in the way and the lighting isn't bright enough to really sell the effect. You can also apply this to your indoor areas, like the two lights in the back of that Mannhattan screenshot.

    Light coming out of windows doesn't work like this.

    Obvious ghost lighting 1 and 2. I assume this is meant to brighten up some dark corners, but it should be felt more than seen.

    tl;dr: use light_spot more often than light

    The spook lighting at the train is a left-over from before the smarter lighting and apparently getting rid of it doesn't turn that corner too dark anymore, as for the other one near the containers: I forgot to put in the bulb model that would've showed where the light comes from :confused:

    Those are some nice pointers, tho. We'll see how I fuck up addressing those in a bit :D

    The following change isn't really worth a RC2 release:

    Normal
    • The Conch-Pyro gatebots on Wave 6 spawn a bit faster now
    • The Soldiers on Wave 6 spawn before the Scouts now so the bomb doesn't get trapped on the sides like earlier

    Hello, Fillmore.

    I got a chance to play your map and I have to say, this is a pretty fun map. I just came to say that I feel the 50 foot nuke bot feels a little left out of the second area. I'm not sure if this would be a good change, but maybe after the bots capture A, maybe 45 seconds after it is captured, the giant demo could pop out somewhere in that area by elevator. This is a completely optional change, and I'm not sure how complicated making that mechanic would be, so don't fret too much about it.

    Sincerely,
    -G.bo

    P.S. I'm glad this was one of the maps in Titanium Tank, and I hope to see another community tour in the future.

    The custom crane prop from Decker that you use in this map spams the games console with an error.
