Other info

2nd released Q3 map. I was 80% done in about 25 hours over 4 days, and took the remaining 11 because my free time was thinned out substantially. Given a full 10 hr 5th day, i could have finished it including release.

Previously, I'd spent 50-60 hrs on maps that were arguably incomplete when released ("The City of Townsville" for JailBreak Q3). I figured out that my problem was with transitions... i'd have this great idea that would make up about half the map, and then would wind up wasting time and construction time trying to build transition from the inspired area into FUNCTIONAL areas.

So with this map, after having been layout inspired by a speedmap from Equim (www.telefragged.com/speedmaps) I built the basic layout for this map in about 2 hours, sealed and playable. Then I decided "i need an area over here" and lo and behold, after abotu another 2 hours I found myself in the transition trap... basically most of my work was concentrated in a 1024 cube area trying to make the new area fit with the inspired area. That's when it dawned on me. I deleted the area, and continued with the inspiration and this is the result.

Will be included with HeadHunters Q3 release.
