I have made a smaller version of Deck 16 for Quake. It's not been tested or received feedback yet. I was told by Negke that maybe this place would good to get some feedback from. Bear in mind I have not done a full 4x4 lighting pass or a full-vis on the map yet.

Here is a screenshot - http://s22.postimg.org/y5vpu7y81/deck.jpg

And here is the beta map file - http://www.slingfile.com/file/TPc3hiij34

I'm looking for all types of feedback -
- snag points
- bsp errors
- texture misalignments
- .dem files (just let me know which engine, email to the email in the .zip, please avoid darkplaces though my pc hates it)
- item placement
- improvement suggestions

Ok, have fun and tell me what you think!

Tried to download last night but gave up after only ending up with that iLivid-download yada yada... could you up it to some more decent host?
Screenshot looks good!

Sweet map, But it's a little hard on the FPS.

Although, I am not running a very powerful laptop. I will turn the textures on later and see if I can find any texture problems.

Nice work!

Now this is a great map with alot of atmosphere. Jumped around it for 5 minutes and felt that this should go straight into the map pool on the xs4all server. But, maybe replace pent with something less epic. And sng-corridor was kinda empty, compared to most other rooms. Love it!
(no fps probs for me)

SNG corridor? Maybe you mean Rocket Launcher corridor? SNG is near the steps in the middle atrium (where the chaingun was in the original map). As for the Pentagram I wasn't really certain what would replace the redeemer.
Thanks for the compliments on the atmosphere, I think a lot of mappers under-utilise the lighting effects and ambient sounds.

It's not a final map yet though since it isn't 4x4 lighting (better quality) and fullvis (better speeds, may improve framerate). I left those 2 last because they can sometimes take many hours to run fully.

Also, test the map with deathmatch "1" enabled. The super powerups are disabled in singleplayer due to their spawnflags (there will be a SP version of the map).

That's pretty neat, though I might have toned some of the red down a little bit
Just FYI I am going to be including the .map file in the final release, so you can really tinker with it once it is finished! All you'll need are the correct .wad files and trenchbroom (it may be compatible with other editors too, I'm not sure).
