Interesting level. There are a few features that really work in TDM, the height differences, the way the water slows you down in giving support to your team members (which reminds me of Propaganda by tequila). There are some good areas for fighting with team members, you can really give support and assist from a adifferent angle. What prevents me of replaying is the fog of death. In TDM it makes me feel stupid falling in the fog of death especially in this map where it is set up in a way it feels like a trap which you could have avoided easily. Making the fog of death a water feature and connect it with the other bottom parts would have been more fitting. If I learned anything from quake3 maps/mods it is important to have features that doesn't make the players feel bad, even if they suck or do something stupid (like playing to enthusiastic) . So in this case for TDM getting fragged by an opponent is part of the game, making a mistake and fall down in fog and die is double punishment (-1 frag and you need some time to get back in the action) would it have been water it would just cost time. A less severe 'punishment' and you don't 'fail' your team members... But all in all a good map but I'd rather play teqdm2 Propaganda by tequila in TDM.

Not a bad map. Sure did feel different from most other level out there (very important imho)

This map impressed me, it connected real well and looked good too. I didn't find it too yellow, a nice change from overly dark lighting.

I give it an 8

Well i've seen the map :)

took me sometime i'm always busy with ... about everything at once.

Map looks great. Lay-out and visuals. Played a match. Botmatch that is :)

well even if i set my gamma to a 'much' lower setting ... that 'yellowish' color is still there ... it's quite irritating ... but it's tolerable .. i think :p

lol.. 70's public architecture wasn't exactly the idea i had in mind but i guess i can see it.. was going for a little simpler, abstract look than the usual quake map.

as for being too yellowish i might have made the map too bright overall.. if your vid card gamma is set really high the tan/gold-ish textures used throughout can look pretty garish. i hate maps that are too dark, but i may have erred in the other direction.

Would have been an interesting real life map without the techno and goth details, just pure 70´s public architecture :)
