General : As I said, I wanted to do a rust-map like Bitter Dungeons. So when I had some ideas about space-map platforms,
I went ahead collecting rust-textures and using them. Besides, I like "alternative" mapdesign leaving the
For example platypus (nunuk), cht2 (-cha0s-), sparth (nunuk) and minima (bengal) are such maps.

Technical : As usual, I first built everything and caulked only as the brushwork was done. This may not be the most
effective way to do maps though, I know. I used 7 "real" textures overall - without \liquids, \common, \sfx and \sky.
As I know texture count is crucial to most competitions, but using very few textures is also something I
use to do anyway.
