Agree with HS. Gameplay is absolutely lacking in this map. A real disappointment. It looks very nice but connectivity is awful. Item choice and location too. This maps end up being a machine gun carnage. No strategy whatsoever. A real shame.

With a little tweaking of the architecture (angles with a lower gradient, trim higher in some places and lower in others for example) Nunuk could have gone on to be 1 of the best map makers for the cpma mod. Unfortunately he veered more in the direction of the novelty space map. This level could have really done with a rail gun. the gameplay just isn't there.

This has got to be one of THE most incredible looking maps around... Who cares about a lack of textures, look what Nunuk has achieved... Way to go!

Nice map. Great architecture and texture use. It did feel a bit slow in mvoing around, perhaps it was the ramps..

BFG: where did you get a p2 380?

It looks kewl, it plays...ok

I kinda hated the lay out, movement is too slow imo.

Great to see such a map and it breathes atmosphere but a big smaller and better and faster ways of moving around would be great

This map looks good, it has as many textures as it needs, but gameplay ain't that spectacular. I, just like Decay, got breathless, but due to the long-running characteristics of this map

I think that this is definitly a GREAT map. Refreshing and new … something for other mappers to think about … like my brother sad, you are Frank O Gehry of the quake world.

Few things I don’t like… 2 Rocket launchers are too much for a Tourney level, … if you ask me, it is not good for tactics in the game…The fact that Rail is missing is a good thing. I also think that the level is a little to big, one has to run a lot from one side to another… if it was a little bit smaller it would’ve been perfect.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a breathless level …and this is just nitpicking… but I had to write it.

10 out of 10!

Keep up the good work.

Nice an experimental, theme map. But gameplay is nothing to write home about..kinda boring.

It's an awesome map... Nice architecture (that was the point) lighting, and low r_speeds... but in my honest opinion, the layout seemed dull. If I had known some of the maps that would've been entering the contest had been this intensive on the architecture, I probably would've thought of something more to put in the one I submitted =) Anyway, awesome map 9/10

Ugh... It has a lot of ramps and they sux at Q3. They make it unconfortable for run around.

Otherwise the flow is not bad, and, of course, it's gorgeus.

But still I think it looks very cool!! I would have liked a darkblue sky with dark clouds moving quickly across though.... I won't write about gameplay yet because bots are so boring to play against. But thumbs up!!!!!

Incredible map; nunuk shows how much better a map can be when time is not invested primarily into look, but into design. The lack of the RG forces one to put some real thought into weapon choice, creating some interesting clashes. Excellent for a laid-back 1v1 up to the much more hectic 3 player DM or 2v2 teamDM. Have some fun with this, its refreshingly different ;)
