    Ok so my maps now in the alpha stages, but im not very good at detail and this is my first map, i had a look at fearlezz' alpha to beta thread but it didnt help to much.
    My problems are details and lack of playtesting so here are my questions.

    Where can i get my map play tested?
    Whats a good way to practise displacement?
    What sort of things add detail?

    here are a few screenshots to just show what i need help with

    Also try using "Light_Spot" Instead of just "Light" And make sure you add a prop where the light's coming from to make it realistic. You may also want to add a "Point_Spotlight"

    Here's a good tutorial by Youme for Light_Spots:

    If you need testing, get it to a playable state and submit it for gameday. The powers that be start a new thread for each upcoming gameday..so just keep an eye for when those threads show up.
