    Hi everyone,

    and a shot for the peeps who don't like to click links

    Hm. I like it, but I fear for my framerate. So many windows, alcoves, and brushes...

    Wow, looks lovely. Great details. Is it a 5 point map or Dustbowl style?

    <edit> duh, wasn't looking. Dustbowl. I've been waiting for another Dustbowsl-style map since Corporation. Can't wait to try it!

    Holy fast replies Batman.

    The windows come into play in 2 sections of the levels, besides that we tried to optimise as much as possible with func_details and hint brushes.

    Thanks ^_^, it's a 2 point map, akin to dustbowl.

    Gracias, we're hoping to test it out on several servers, so any recommendation is much appreciated. ^_^

    The paint transition in this shot is a really nice touch.

    We'd be happy to host and test it for you. We just helped with the new version of Oilrig.

    We love Corporation, and would love another 2-Point map to be in rotation.

    Omg yes I didn't see that! Really nice way to hide that seam to switch texture!

    I'd like to second that opinion. After I first noticed it, I spent about 30 seconds staring, saying to myself "genius".

    That's amazingly pretty. You've got some great artists there. This rooftop bit looks like great fun, too:

    This looks very good, did you base it on photographs/real areas?
    It'd be interesting if you posted these.

    Awesome, incredibly original too how you've used the texture selection; along with making your own, it seems. Lighting is spot on too.

    Kudo's, i'm quite taken back!

    thanx, yeah we did base it on real area's. Though (of course) we did not build everything like the real world =) Here are some of the reference-pics:

    Wow. Looks awesome!
    Will definitely be added on my servers, and I'll make deathmaps and provide sourcetv replays.

    looks like some talent :D that seam transition was indeed genius. Here I am thinking "Damn, I wish I'd thought of that"
