This map seems dull to me....I think you need to be a bit more creative with your work....it is not all about curvy walls and all...think, think and make your ideas come true. Good luck

Where the box is outside, maybe make it a box of explosives that if blown , blows up a grate or the wall behind it revealing a extra route. one side could have the box with explosives, the other side drums with explosives.
but you would have to add a reason for them being there or how they got there, as it is they are in a unaccesible location unless the workers swim to them.

I am now in the process of doing a complete redesign.

Main changes will be:
Creating custom textures from existing Halflife 2 textures to go with teams.
Creating new lighting throughout the map. Give the map a much brighter feel to it.
Redesigning water route (Underground style feel with rocks and stuff) (Not seen in screenshots yet)
Water tunnel to look as if its colapsing with bolders coming out of walls in tunnel.
Giving the level a stone/Metalic theme (If it looks good)...

Hope to get these changes done for later in the week maybe next week.

From what I see from the pics is that you have done a great job getting all the basic architecture down, but you need to take the architecture a step further. Place a random vent prop in the top corner isnt going to cut it for detail. Add more pillars to the wall, more supports in areas. And more sensible trims in place (on the bridges) Also use less generic textures, take texture with more lines and then align them to the brush so the edges of the brush are more defined. Currently you map is looking to dark and bland lighting wise. Maybe use more color in your lights (more orange), also I come to find that spot lights look alot better then regular light entities. Now im not saying its bad to use white or gray colored lights, just use them where you feel is necassary but dont use them everywhere, add some variation. It will appeal to the eye more, especially if you use complimenting light colors (blue and orange, red and green.) Well continue with the updates and the work, it seems you got the hard part out of the way already and the rest is down hill from here. keep it up.

I thnk ive said this before in a prior post somewhere but ill say it again.

The current layout of the map is just the base layout. I am going to start work on lighting/models/fine details towards the end.

This means i can get the basic design all done and finished.

Next task which i am working on is displacements (I cant seem to get rock faces looking real enough and i need it for the water route section).
Then after that ill be doing everything else.

As far as textures go. All textures in the map are only temporary just so i can get a rough ide. The final textures will be added on the FF release once i have my hands on the textures.

Good things come to those who wait... (Sometimes...)

Significant changes being made to the outside of the map yet again. Have started to design the lighting and stuff in the ramp room.

Question to whoever might know.
In the screenshots of CZ2 does anyone know how those beams of light are done which shine out of each command point...??

Thanks

My dear Dr. Flexyjerkov

I have recently found out about the evil blues, they are trying to set you up!!!! They are hacking your computer and they want to put hacks in your Fortress Forever maps so you will get caught and banned from FF for eternity!!!!

This is totally unacceptable, join the great yellow team and we shall protect you from these evil people, I cried every day you were innocently banned from TFC, history may not repeat itself and your maps should be protected from these evil people!!

Please contact me ASAP so I can help you out!!!
I decided to not put who i recieved this PM from as the evil blues may attack him also...

Clearly Zydell, I received a PM from him about my sginature, about Comic Sans

Everyone try your best to ignore Zydell's posts, they are just an attempt to exploit your weakness. As you can see, he has already succeeded with a few people, most notably dr.flexyjerkov.
