    Motion alpha 2

    Greetings everyone!

    This is my first serious attempt at a 3CP attack/defend map.

    I'm going to be adding a 3D skybox and other cosmetic touches another time because I'm doing this for a research project and I require gameplay feedback from informed ladies and gentlemenn like yourselves sooner rather than later.

    Also with feedback please let me know about anything I may have overlooked, any bugs, or anything else you want to say.

    If I have time after the project and if the map is well enough received then I'll release new versions later on.

    Edit: Oh! And credits to the bulletcrops guys, I used some of their models.

    It looks as if you've built bare-bones buildings and filled in space with props. Also, a train without warning is a no-no, because nobody likes unpredictable deaths.

    Your ambient/env light is really bright. And detailing wise it looks pretty dull, a lot of repetitive textures... can't tell gameplay wise yet. We'll have to test it at some point.

    It looks a lot better than probably every other first map I've ever seen. You've still got some instances of prop spam and huge ightlines, though, plus a mixed or no theme(?).

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    I'll fix the sun and the train warning soon enough. As for prettiness and theme, I kind of don't want to invest the time if the map plays badly. I'll release better looking versions if its a half-decent map to play on. Plus I had absent-mindedly not done pakrat so missing stuff'll come in soon as well.

    And as for the research project, the bureaucratic explanation is here: http://www.senioryears.sa.edu.au/default.asp?id=36028&navgrp=1087

    But pretty much its a horribly generalised project that all year 12s in South Australia have to do over a semester.

    If youre still playing around with major layout revisions and not decided on a theme, I'd change the progress to alpha so people dont judge the visuals as much.
