    The map looks great!

    The displacements in the scenery are a bit too bumpy though, try making the radius larger and the amplitude a bit lower, and change the texture to a ground texture. You could maybe even add some pine trees there as well.

    Nice map, man! The sewers feel a little claustrophobic though.

    The sewer center is cool, but the paths that lead to spawn is particularly unfun.

    Say you're walking towards center. If there's an enemy on the other side (which is almost guranteed), you have extremely limited space to move around, no cover, and the enemy has the healthpack. I propose adding additional rooms like the ones below which will make approaching easier and provide some interesting cover to fight around.

    You could always have the water pass under a grate to keep it connected to the center.

    One other thing, the water in the sewers center is at this awkward height. It's shallow enough to leave without swimming (which feels strange at it's height), and it causes crouching to glitch out.
