Wait!.. On map-factory.org, It says [BBST]R@dius created this map.. Well he must of stole your map because he released this map in 2010 and well this is map released in 2000. Looks like he/she stole your map without permission :O.

Boy, people sure are hard to please. I personally love city maps (sniper at heart), and I keep this one as my main map for occasional fragfesting and mod writing/testing. No, it's not the best map I've seen, but it's far from the worst. It's decent, fun, and fast.

Nice map Bauul, runs good on my system, and it's different.

Lots of weapons and ammo, my kind of mayhem. Railgunners tend to take advantage of the tower, but hey that's life.

Damn Bauul, stop posting friggin' un-needed responses. Such as
"Only 15 more DLs. Come on!!!"
and
"360 people! Way hay!". Half of these posts are from you. I'm not gonna even bother to d/l your map cause your pissing me off so much. HAH, hows that for a response? Get a life and try to create a map based on your own ideas.

This map is cool. I always have fun when i play it. It never lags at all. It looks like a city, what else should it look like? Its especially fun to get the flight and fly up onto the huge tower with the ailgun and zoom in and shoot people and they cant shoot you. I like seeing them shooting rockets and plasma up at me knowing that they will never hit me. Then i run out of slugs and make the jump. Oh yeah.

Actually, the item placement is great. Simply the fact that the bots never hang around one area justifies this fact. I have never played a map like this, nor have ever heard of one. The map does not look crap. Load up Test_box (the id test map), and then say this looks crap. The gameplay is there, it's just that if you like the asbility to hide or take cover, you won't like the map.

The streetlights and benchs were deliberatly blocky and made of brushes.. I have map models for both, but chose to make them simply for game speed reasons. This is a very fast map, and may not appeal to everyone.

This is not the worst map in exisitance. According to Tig, my other map is worse, but at least that has real gameplay.

It has now become very obvious that this really is a love/hate map, but obviously a few more people love it than hate it.

Ignore the problems, as they don't affect gameplay, and you actually have not a bad map.

frankly, the map sucks, plain and simple. Not that there aren't other lousy maps out there (plenty of them) or that it's the worst map in existence or that it's alone in being bad, just that it's one of the 80% or so of maps that really deserve to be ignored and deleted from anyone's hard drive after checking out once (if you even bother to download it, which reviews and ratings like this are SUPPOSED to save you from...)

It's a very typical "first" map which looks like crap and has no gaemplay other than being a box with some other boxes (roughly buildings) in it, and some very awkward and blocky-looking structures such as benches and lightposts. There have been dozens and dozens of virtually identical city maps (such as the fragtown series), usually none of which are any good, and this one is no better than the rest. Not particularly imaginative, not particularly well make, not particularly attractive, particularly fun to play, poor item placement, etc. There's really not much to say, other than that it deserves about a 4 rating, not nearly an 8 (you can tell someone with an interest in seeing the map do well has a dynamic IP address and gives it regular "10s"...)

"oh Bauul, i thought your map was great and I worship you, the ground you walk on, the mod you work for (www.quake3mods.net/hunter) and every single little detail I can think of. Oh please, Lord of all, God of the Universe and all round kick ass guy, make some more maps please!"

Now, that is what I am looking for :)

Look, what is the point of going on about this being on the top ten? Lets have something constructive on this message site. If people like the map, that's fine, but you are about the fifth person to say "why is this up here?". The answer: becuse obviously people have voted it up here! if you don't like the map, just vote low down on the scale. I like structured critism but not just "oh this is a crap level and should be right at the bottom of the list". At least tell me why!

Actually, that Bottom ten list is not a bad idea. We all like to see the best maps, but I think it would be funny to see the most shite maps ever made that people dare to send to lvl.

Is it as clear to others as it is to me that one or two people with dynamic ip addresses are solely responsible for the high score of this map?

I mean, kudos to bauul for doing the work to make it in the first place, and I realize it's a first effort and everyone's got to start somewhere (meaning I wouldn't normally say anything out of the way about it, except that it's now showing up on the top 10 list...), but...it isn't really any good at all and doesn't even come close to deserving the score it's getting. So why is its score so high? Do people really have so little taste that they actually LIKED this map???

Lelon, first points.
I would put it on the menu if I had any idea how!

2nd point
The lighting is of two types, moonlight (white) and streetlight (orange). Moonlight is white and streetlight is orange (the sodium hydroxide that glows orange when electricity is passed through it)

3rd point
The scaling is perfect. I find nothing wrong with this.

This map looses 2 points for not showing up on the menu, 1 point for horrible lighting. 1 point for poor scale. 6 from me

A strong 7 here from me, loss of points due mainly to the strange greenish yellow hue that seems to fill the whole map. Weapon placement was pretty good, and layout was fine, though the back passages and dark spots Tig mentioned did get annoying quickly.

Happy Fraggin! Octovus

The elevator is a good idea, but how about a.. wait for it... a HUGE jump pad that throws you 200 feet up so you land neatly on the top. He he he. Still, ([NRD]10sun) i'm very glad you enjoyed it. It is good for LAN netwrks becuse the framerate is always hogh, even on low end computers. You are right about the sniping. Sniping from on high (near birds eye) is actually very hard, but sniping from a lower buildng dosen't let you see the whole map, and yes, you are very open.

Tge areas of the map that are very dark have little or nothing in of value, but I LOVE that bit with the medi-kit, in the beam of moonlight. That was cool.

PS:

Has anyone found the flight artifact? There is on in there, and so far, no-one has told me about it, not even Tigger-On.

Although many people seem to complain about this map, my friends and I all loved it at the LAN party we held this past weekend. It had something for everyone. I eagerly await a new version... perhaps one with an elevator to take you to the top of the skyscraper? Its actually a lot harder to snipe from there than on the ground level b/c people can see you real easy(I'm the only one who has details cranked).

I wish more maps of this theme were put out b/c this one and SiNCity are currently the preferred practice maps of my roomates and I. I can only complain in one area of this map. Some parts are just too dark and it is frustrating seeing an area that you just can't squeeze through =(. Overall though, I give this an 8 of 10.

Calm down Deadstar, do you think I knew of the bugs when I released the map? If you do, you are gravly mistaken... But don't worry, if you liked the idea of the map but hated the actaul thing, I am working on metro2, a much imporved version, with no bugs and extra stuff, like buildings are open to go into and run around the different floors etc.

D'oh! Still, yes, this was my first map, and is FULL of bugs.

<whinge>What's the bloody point in releasing a map when you KNOW it's buggy. And why the hell do people insist on releasing their "first map" all the time. Take some time and get some skills and release something that's WORTH downloading.</whinge>

If you have a map waiting to be reviewed by Lvl and you think maybe it should be in the Beta section, just grab yourself a mappers login & put the map up there, then send an email letting us know you want to put the review on hold.

I have previewed about half of the current queue and a lot have technical bugs / flaws that bring down the maps potential. Put it in the Beta section and find out what your friends wouldn't tell you about the map.

This is really wierd! I was POSATIVE non of the buildings were floating! I must of accidently moved the pavment/side walk down. D'oh! Still, yes, this was my first map, and is FULL of bugs. The bots work well with it, as in they don't cling to one area, but it is a very shoddy map. Still, it's a first, and what is the beta area for? Shame it wasn't up when I made this! My latest map, Darkayne, is a little better. I hope. :-)

I recognize alot of the textures on this map from a tutorial series I was reading when I first started learning how to use Qradiant. The tutorial example map was a city setting not unlike Bauul's. So I'm guessing this is Bauul's first map, which really shows in the real lack of flow or attention to detail in the map. Gameplay adds up to mostly running around in the street with little cover other than the little square skyscrapers, some of which hover irritatingly a few inches above the ground. Ultimately this map seems really unfinished. (Bots played well on it at least...)
