I like the windows throughout the map so you can look through them and see the beautiful skybox. Gameplay is excellent as well as the lighting and the textures are used perfectly throughout the map.

The layout and weapon placement is excellent and bots play really good.

Bal, your an excellent mapper.

Does anybody want to play a game that I call "Frags" on Disinformation?

One of the best! Disinformation provides excellent gameplay, with the opportunity to get away from a battle, but not for long! You will have room in this map, but you'll still need your wits about you if you want to live!

I dunno if I'd say that this is better than Bal3dm4(ospdm3), but yeah I've always liked this map quite a bit. It has a fun layout/weapon placement set up. He's a great mapper.

This is one great map! Rich atmosphere, excellent use of models and shader effects, mostly great use of textures and very very nice game play. A thin blue fog fills the level like the residue of an car accident, and there are broken windows, exposed pipes and electrical shorts. The whole place feels likes its building up to a major show down. There are a few textures that don't contribute quite so much they just aren't as good and could have been left out all together. The stairs with pipes and other science paraphernalia on it is a primary suspect. The sounds are also a little loud. Bots play fine, some will even camp the Rail gun.

I keep going back to this map, downloading it again and again after cleaning up my map collection. This map raawks the HEAVY indoor space theme. I wish it expanded one day to include two things, a jump pad and access to some out-door element. Tight design Bal, keep fragin out the bad ass maps!

This is THE map for "indoor" (as opposed to "space") base-themed maps. Very thick theme, and no overt attempts to mimick ID maps. (Not that ID maps are bad....).

Really sweet. But, the one thing I don't get is the earth/stone inside. I tghout maybe we were on the moon, but it is more like a spaceship. Built around a tiny asteroid, maybe? But why would one do that? Regardless, it is really well done, and I love the exterior features (dish, antennas). Just curious. Still gave it a 10.

Oh wait. Just read the readme. :)

Beautiful textures and great layout. Nice to see a non-gothic non-space map of this quality. One bug makes me not play it though... WHAT IS THAT F*!^#%!! BEEPING NOISE THAT WON'T STOP!?! Fix that and I give you a 10!

Maybe no one else noticed this, but when the level is loading, "Disinformation" is spelled wrong. They left out the "R".

Very nice feel to this map, great ideas, it seems like quite a bit of thought went into it during the planning stages. The texturing is awsome, lighting could be a bit more accented here and there, gameplay is brilliant. This is a very nicely finished project, something to aspire to. My only nitpick is botplay. They don't come to the upper level, on any setting. I stood up top with the GL and just let them fly and let the bots below die. I only mention this as I couldn't find live opponents to play and the bots were not making use of the whole map, not that they ever do. Anyway great map, great look and great job.

since I like larger FFA maps the best I just had to try this one.

well it just isnt as good as I hoped.

layout was nice,but item placement could have been better.

YA and RA are also too close together.

bots seem to hang out around the PG too much.

seemed like there was no real game flow.

this could all change playing online,but I'm a HPB so its bots for me.

textures and layout are so nice that I would love to give a better score.

8 out of 10

Two of the armors are a bit close, and the grenade and railgun clips (all of them, even) are right next to the respective weapons (which encourages spamming/camping). Otherwise, the level seems pretty damn awesome. I'm just sad that it doesn't play as a tourney level. :(

Maybe I could use it for a 2v2... :)

In case anybody is wondering, the custom sounds in this map are from The Sound Factory. All of them (I believe) are from the Industrial Pack. Bal just forgot to update the test file.
