inconsistent speeds are just because my host is in europe, compared to wherever other hosts may be.

This map is nifty.

When I was playing it earlier today the glare from outside was killing my brain, so I'll get some better adjectives in a little while.

i like what youve done with the place

two things to consider though,
this small lip here messes up rampsliding (unless ff does something to negate the effect. if this matters to you, you should use a small clip brush brought level with the trim. if not, or if this was intended, allright.

also, this might just be me, but you should reduce the OuterMaxDistance for your underwater lights so they fade more as you move away from them, because to me this looks odd


i especially like the water enterance room, very nice architecture.

Thanks for the huge amount of feedback, everyone. I'll address the lighting issue for the FF version. Unless there are any crippling errors, I think I'll let this version be the hl2dm version. But yeah, here's what I'm seeing:
- Address lighting. Make it more spunky
- Reduce the intensity of glows at a distance
- Consider Bhop and Concajump issues
- Brushes at edge of big blue and red rooms let skybox through

Keep the comments coming, and I'll address them.

Water is too murky D:
Lighting needs a heap of work and I'm guessing the fr is the room at the top of the lift (only remember this map from q2 threewave ctf).

Seriously consider making it a fry_morfort remake since FryGuy made that map way more suited for tfc (but was a bit cramped and easy to defend) than 2morfort (this suits the q2/3 ctf game style more with its touch returns)... because it's just too small D:

It doesn't even have to be like fry_morfort, just another room or something new!

p.s that room with the big glass window is very cool

I like the use of the skybox and all the curvy glass. Looks totally sweet.

The water is too murky in my opinion too, though.

Also, the fans just look like they go off into space. If you're at the top of the ramp across from them or just up in the air for some reason (This is TF, after all :P) you can see that there's nothing behind them. Maybe even just a bit of a grassy hill in the skybox would work.

I think more people should release betas of their maps to test (*glares at himself*).

I'd have to say, looking at the original pictures of the map for tfc and compairing them to yours, you have the best remake yet. Amazing architecture mostly! Love it and can't wait to play it!

Well, I just got a message from the creator of TFC's 2morfort1_1, AndyC who was kind enough to give me permission to port his map to FF:

I have seen the screenshots of your completed map and it looks great, I'm really glad that my map was so well received and that it has inspired you to remake it to such high quality.
I am honored

And I have also been motivated to put the final touches on the map. I adjusted lighting, built a better skybox and put in some indoor and outdoor soundscapes to add a little more atmosphere to the map. I can finally say it is done except for the FF entities - that includes a cap point at the top of each base, the flag in the back of each base, player spawn entities and placards indicating directions to the flag and the cap point. Woo hoo! None of it is really screenshot or update worthy, but I figured you all might be interested. Now just one question remains:

When ff will out?

found a couple of bugs while looking through the map



behind the bars that kinda look like prison cells



the water exit

also, how come your using cheap water in the main bit but expensive in the inside? would look alot better with all expensive if you could

this is so far my favourite FF comunity map, very fun to play on and I must say that even though the mines wont be in FF, it sure is fun to mine the other side of the door exiting from the spawn room

Wow, thanks for the bug spotting, luminous, I'll squash 'em right now.

And thanks for the props, BINGO-BANGO, I am quite satisfied with how this turned out and I look forward to releasing it once FF is out.

I've been quiet lately, but I still snoop around from time to time. I've been absorbed by NWN2 so my mapmaking is in a lull (plus I have no internet on my map making computer) but something tells me I'll get back in the groove come January...

I like this map, ive got some juicy feedback:

Lighting, add some colour too it subtle yellows and blues work best for the ambient light

Add some slightly stronger yellows/oranges for the lighting around the base its very washed out and grey at the moment.

If you are really stuck have a look here:
