In 2011 I was making a map called The Gloom and I stopped, in fact I mostly stopped mapping until just late last year. I begun finishing off the map I was making and I'd like for some people to try it out and help me find and fix bugs. I would appreciate it a lot, thanks :).

Just played it a couple games against bots and couldn't find any bugs. No zebraings, no misaligned textures, no weird clippings where to get stuck or anything. It's rock solid here. I quite like the setup and everything.
I'd like a serious review of this map in terms of spawn points and item placements.

With bots, they seem to focus around the main open area. That open area, due to the size, is a little dark and the lightning is a little too regular.

The supersaturate colours are a little too much. A hint of colour can go a long way.

There are a number of dead-ends and long corridors. The teleporters help a lot here but maybe the ones that put you at the main action area could be adjusted a bit.

The MegaHealth does pull the game play focus. I wanted a quicker way from the main lower floor to the middle and top area. For example, swap the main area lower teleport to a jump pad to keep people in the game more. Under the green "church" window, a jump pad to the top level (maybe).

From the medi-kit, short cut to the long corridor above and maybe shorten the long "back" corridor.

Punch a hole from the lower main floor through the wall and create a short corridor with a 90 degree bend to the red fog pit and add a launch pad up to the RL.

The lightning gun / ammo combo may not be in the right spot.

It is an enjoyable map and I had fun but does feel a little dated. This could be just the colours and long corridors.

Thanks for the advice, this is what I have changed so far:

Edited 3 days after the original posting.

I think I've pretty much got the layout and clipping sorted out, would anyone like to test it pls?
