    koth_snowcliff - Simple snowy king of the hill map similar to viaduct

    New map in development, a snowy cliffside king of the hill map.

    Uses similar viaduct layout with some different routes.
    It's still in early development and needs way more playtesting

    Looks nice! But next time I'd advise against detailing your map until you've had some (read: lots of) playtesting done. Best get the gameplay done first, then the artpass.

    Heh yeah sorry, I couldn't help it. I hate working with development textures and try to fill them in with real textures as fast as possible. Whats the repercussions of texturing early by the way?

    Well, just using textures is fine, not everyone likes seeing dev textures all the time.

    The problem is when you do full-on detailing: at this point you don't know how well your map is gonna play, and it's very likely you'll need to make some major changes to your map's layout... and it's much easier to modify a very basic map than a fully-detailed, intricate project.

    Plus it really sucks when you have to throw out a bunch of detailing work because a particular area doesn't play very well.

    Ah I see, that makes sense. I should have probably laid off the props atleast then. Well im willing to make some major changes if it's needed, even if that means some detailing work lost.

    This reminds me of my own map, Frostbite (which coincidentally, was also super-detailed from a1) :p

    It does look really nice though

    I checked it out, does indeed remind a lot of this one. I guess some people can't help but detail a bit early! :rolleyes:

    Yeah, you have a really bad habit of detailing your maps before you playtest them.

    Thanks for saying what everyone else said.
    This should help me improve for next time.
