This map is a small space floater in a high-tech theme. Multiple platforms are connected via jumppads, launchpads and some winding bridges made of a glass-like material.

Like most space floaters, this map uses rather simple brushwork and lighting but the texturing is good and the glass shader looks cool. PG, RL, LG and RG are available and as you'd expect the RG is very powerful in this map. Item placement makes sense, though I'm not sure about the HASTE. The layout of the map (platforms and connections between them) felt good to me.

Some of the platforms could use some clipping and a NODROP brush at the bottom of the map wouldn't hurt. Bots play the map OK but one of them managed to fall into the void and stay alive down there somehow (looks like the TRIGGER doesn't span the entire base of the map but I didn't investigate further).

Altogether the map ain't bad and if you like space maps you should ignore the minor issues and give it a try.

Tigs notes: Personally, I had issues with the launch pads, especially the one you drop down to.
