CTF map where you can only see 10 feet in front of you.

Sentry guns are a bitch, but spies will be used constantly ;)

spies stick alot ALOT better in fog. the fog is not as bad now.

love the map layout. only things i would do are:
make the "eles" push a bit faster
as for the columns on the sides..i think they just need the same lines that run throughout the map underneath the platforms..also the map is supposed to be sorta dark..i think that it could benefit from more/stronger shadows, say underneath the ledges and platforms..i think that would help the side columns as well. buti had great fun playing the map..i like the subtle changes and think that it is farely well balanced..but thats just my humble opinion.

GambiT 11-21-2007 03:52 AM

i agree the push speeds need to be tweaked.(how much more of a push would you suggest?, some ppl are happy with it as is, some ppl aren't, i need to find a medium)

the columns and shadows, i actually thought about having the lights at the top shining down casting shadows of the ledge the lights are in now(that you can jump on)

and i was thing about flowing the texture onto the floor b/w the columns but not sure that would look to good.

the lighting needs work, it doesn't feel cold enough to me.

thanks for your input.

yeah i went back and messed with lifts and maybe just make the push more width (if thats possible) because if you jump right in the center it does a decent job but if your a hair off, its very slow and sloppy, which might be a good thing because enemy O can now use them. i think putting lights behind the columns is a good idea, that way the shadow can kinda hide the details on the front of them. i think more contrast between dark and light areas will help with the coldness feeling, but as you stated lighting needs work. example would be the ledges in the middle area, if the lighting above caused a hard shadow below them, on the wall, in areas like that it would reinforce the white snow on the ground and the light concrete texture of the bases...or maybe im crazy lol

Nice map man, i liked the foggy thing, altough i think it looks pretty empty if there are no props or mountais "behind" the map u know, good job!

GambiT 11-23-2007 12:52 AM

:twisted: Fucker:twisted: More work for me. I'll get it put up right now.
^meant with a smile^

EDIT: I got the map put up on the server. But I seem to be missing the mountain textures. I checked and double checked the server and fast files and all the files in the zip are there.
