I played annoyance when it was just a wee lad and it has enhanced tremendously (and it still rocked back then) Playing 1 on 1's with Erlandr FFA with him and some friends "r0x0r3d" on that map. The textures rule and the lighting is magnificent. And no i don't really think he's ugly.

yeah, this map kicks ass. If you love small fast games as much as I do, you should get this one. Good job Erlandr.

After reading some of the reviews below, i DL'd this level expecting to see an okay level, adequate (but not exceptional) attetion to detail, and a smallish map such as Hell's Gate.

i was dead wrong.

i started in an open area facing into one of the hallways of the level, so i just started off going straight and walked into the hallway. That's when i saw it. Probably the most beautiful architecture i've seen in a Q3A map. The mappers at id should take pointers from this guy. The torches and lamps are spaced evenly to make for a very orderly look while lighting the level adequately. They aren't just for show. At the same time they fit in perfectly with the design of the map to make it look extremely believable. This could easily be a real-life construct and, as with alot of the gothic levels, doesn't feel alien. The blue sky, while i usually loathe it, complements this level well, adding to the overall realism. It's also not as cramped as Hell's Gate. Instead, the size is just right for a 1 on 1 map where the players won't be at each other's throats constantly. To me, that's a good thing. An intelligent player can also use the design of the level to his advantage. i found at least two places where a well-executed rocket jump can put you in an area out of sight of a pursuing player. At the same time, the size of the map makes it flexible enough to get up to 4 or 6 players in an FFA, although anything more than 4 just becomes a blood bath!

All in all, this map is at least an 8. Excellent work, Erlandr! If you guys haven't already, you owe it to yourself to at least give this level a walk-through. i think you'll be plesantly surprised.

Whats wrong with the blue sky? Seriously?! You must have a terrible life if you dislike blue skies :).

Firethorn: I'm sorry baby, I still love you!

the blue sky is evil! it ruins a lot of maps by making them way too bright, i have yet to see a blue skied level that wouldnt be better with red or yellow sky... i guess it is kind of nice to see a vhange from the norm, but it causes ugliness (for lack of a better word)

Bomb-diggity! I loved this map. It gave me a 1 on 1 tournament orgasm. Literally! I had to clean out my drawers from all the man chowder that this map made me expel! I hope you make more maps! I like maps that make me spew ropes of steamy white shpunk...Thanks a million, Erlandr. And my vas differens thanks you as well

Play tested it from the start! Not the most detailed map... but with all the action, who the heck can stand still long enough to look? perfect for 2 to 4 people. Personally i think the 1v1s on this map are as about as good as it gets. And yes, the sky is very nice. I'm sick of RED AND BROWN EVERYTHING

Wow .. that is a great map Erlandr! I have playtested it for about two hours with bots on varying skills, and find it very enjoyable. The layout is more logical than some of the maps from the id team. It has a very gothic feel to it.

It is a little big for 1v1 matches IMO, but with four total players it is an absolute frag fest.

I am unsure what the issue is with the blue sky, to me it makes it seem more real versus being on some alien planet.

Good job!

Lots of fun! The map seems a lot bigger than it really is. I think it'll be even better playing against humans. Nice open spaces and plenty of corners to paint yourself into !!!

Hi, Erlandr! I think it's like the difference with Science Fiction movies: Better, to make the stuff looking used & aged... not to clean.

Hey thanks for the all the imput, both good and bad!

This is a first release map for me, and aesthetics were pretty much an afterthought so I can understand some gripes about that. I primarily focused on the layout and gameplay, I personally love it but maybe my opinion is biased ;). Give it a shot, who knows, maybe you'll enjoy it!

hey what the hell? i like this map, it plays well, it looks alright, so whats the deal. i dont know why u guys dont like it, but its a keeper for me, the only thing i dont like about this map or any map is that damn blue sky, i think that the red amd yellow skies give it a better mood.

It looks unnatural and blocky. Like a Muppets-stage. Cheap decoration.

I took a flight in spectator-mode to inspect the map (fine method!) -and then I saw the roofs -the way the look- then the map wandered into thi litterbin. Sorry, so I never had a real possibility to make a real test. I will not make any score.

Small, Fast, Delicious.. but lacking something in the imagination/decor department.

Very good try though, I'll be keepin' this one for a while..
