    The fog makes it impossible to see anything and you have stretched textures in the 2nd and 3rd pictures.

    THIS COULD BE SALVAGED.

    1. remove the fog.
    2. add snow instead
    3. fix your textures on the tower
    4. re-upload those screenshots and we'll go from there

    It's like this is a wholly white map that makes people snowblind. The fog is too thick and it'll hinder fps (try running this map with bots, your computer may explode!), the texture is monotone.

    Needs more work to make it decent.

    The fog is impossible to see through and doesn't match the sky. You did a pretty crummy texturing job, even on an orange map. The fourth image makes no sense (it's snowing, why is there no snow there.) And there is no reason to ever place engineer buildings in a map.

    Fog actually improves fps as it does not render the textures, it just makes them the colour of the fog.

    Ideally.. you want the fog to match the horizon of your skybox. So that it's seemless and blends and isn't an eye sore.

    Why do people keep editing orange maps? :facepalm:
    And heres some constructive criticism. Textures are stretched, fog is really thick, oh yeah, its an orange map. Please try to make your own maps and not edit other ones ;) I hope you make a normal map someday :)

    The map doesn't play very well, it's an unadultered spamfest with no chance of winning. I say this with conviction. It's also too foggy.

    would be nice if someone made a complete new version/style from scratch , there is so many orange_x3 remakes out there its just mad having so many.

    changing textures and adding a few things just gets a bit boring and frustrating.

    i believe IcyEyes made a complete new version called cp_spire, might be worth taking a leaf out of his book and start from scratch and making something new and refreshing.

    Paint a piece of shit your favorite color, and it's still a piece of shit.

    Orange X is a horrible map in every facet. The textures are the least of it's worries.

    This.

    "Remakes" and "pimp outs" are bloody stupid either ways, but they reach a whole new level of pointlessness when you're doing it to something that can't even hope to be called a map.

    Look at Valve maps, look at well regarded maps within the community (think Meridian, Furnace, HAARP, Snowdrift, etc) and make something yourself... Something that isn't "orange" crap.

    There are plenty of maps in this forum in need of some TLC. Why not give our attention to those instead of posting in another cp_orange thread?

    The first 5 replies covers everything the author could possibly need to salvage this effort.

    Also, hate to be "this guy" but, did you get permission from the author of orange_x3 to edit this map? If you decompiled somebody else's custom map, re-textured and compiled it, isn't that kinda, wrong?

    I mean, I'm not saying orange_x3 is amazing or anything, but it's still somebody's work, (or the edit of cp_orange_x (the author for orange_x3 had permission iirc on the fpsb page)) but did you get permission from, the guy who made orange_x3.

    I'd like to think, no matter how bad, ugly, lame a map is there is still some meaning in it being "somebody's work" I'd hate my maps edited without my permission...

    Before anybody brings up Valve re-makes, they kinda encouraged people editing their maps... orange_x3 is a custom so I think it can be treated differently.
