Oh what a fast-paced map. Very very fun, well design. A few refinements would have improved the brushes, making it a bit less coarse. But it is really addictive. A shame the mapper stopped working on maps.

Pretty impressive to be honest. Let's just say it's quite ''Enjoyable'' . 7/10

Check in tourney menu:)

This is a tourney map so it doesnt show up in other menus.

If ppl wanna play it in other gametypes they will have to start the game in that gametype and then type my mapname in console /map d3xf1.

Hope this clear thingz

If he can do such good maps, maybe he can work out how to get them to show up in the console ... just a little consideration for Joe Public ...

Fast Eddie (and others) - Thats a minor error that comes from compiling a level with an incorrect .shader. It has no real effect on game play or performace (that I've noticed anyway). The only way to fix it is to recompile the level with the .shader fixed up, often its as simple as a .tga file is missing thats refferenced in the .shader at compile time.

Bottom line, nothing you can do about it and nothing to really worry about, however mappers should make an effort to fix them.

Yup,i have to agree with everyone, excellent map indeed....but i am having a problem no one else has mentioned. When i bring down the console i am getting one of those yellow messages saying,

WARNING: shader 'textures/decker/decker_tele' has lightmap but no lightmap stage! could someone let me know what this means and how i can go about fixing it? I'm pretty new to q3arena so go easy please. Thanks in advance.

I dont really know what to say, this map is very nice. Multiple levels, nice weapon placment, bots play fine... oh wait, thats it! The bots tend to stay near the middle. I almost never see them navigate the level. This level still gets my props. Keeep em' comin.

Good stuff maynard, addictive as hell. Blows many of the original CPM maps right out da water! For you bot nuts, try the Lakerbot on this level...much better 1v1 than ID's standard goofballs.

LOL - dunno which bots you're playing but the ones i've taken on havent been much of a problem - even on nightmare. If there had been a railgun on the map we'd all be history but there aint :)

Great map druz.

(BTW: It's addictive, not addicting)

Who judges a map by the bots? I do. I Russia internet connection speed sucks most of the time, and bots are an acceptable solution of this prob. However, after I wrote the prev msg I went to play this map via LAN, and that was GREAT!!! That was damnitGREAT!!!

Very well done, highly entertaining, good flow. I like small maps (no hunting, low end system, lots of frags.

More please :)

I like the map, and the item placement is good. Unfortunately, absolutely unplayable with nightmare bots. (to compare I easily kick Nighmare Xaero's... nevermind on q3tourney6) But the map's realy worth downloading even if it was 3 times larger. Good 9.

love the verticle fighting.

9 out of 10

gameplay is about a 9 or 10, looks are about 6. Average is 8. Nice job Druzli. A fresher or more detailed theme would have made it a classic.

Indeed this map is addicting. Although I usually hate small maps that favor all out aggressiveness, this map was addicting to play.

Best looking map from DruZli so far, and also plays great in its own way. There's no real extended tactics or trying to guess what your opponent is doing here; it's "circus style" duel with players bouncing in and around the architecture like superballs and fighting almost constantly.

Check out the demos, they're good demonstrations of the map from a couple of good players.
