I am currently creating an 1on1 map. So far I have created the basic map structure and trying to figure out balance. I will add eye-candy after the map plays nice.

It looks good, and it plays good (only tried 1on1 so far).
The addition of a bit of extra ammo and the removal of water in beta 3 has made all the difference.

Just needs more people playing it!

Said Id give you some feedback so here it is:

* Too many, narrow corridors. They make for easy spam and not so exciting fights. Feels like maggot lair in diablo 2.
* Quad room should look more like the red room, with lots of openings and a larger area around it.
* One teleport leads to the other, but that teleport leads to the opposite side of the room of the first. It there a reason for this?
* Good flow on the map, you can speedjump pretty freely which I like.

You have some good ideas in the map, but the maggot lair corridors leading between the interesting rooms are quite a turnoff.

I updated the map with some suggestions from various people.

* Corridors are shortened when possible to make the map faster
* Fixed teleporter so that it feels normal (entrance and exit at the same position)
* Widened some places and made others narrower
* Changed steps up to RA to teleporter instead. I never liked those stairs anyway
* All stairs are now ramps (even though they looks like stairs)
* Minor tweaks

I tried to make the map a bit less maggoty but I am not sure it is doable at this stage. But I will consider it if I make another map.

I really like this version, the only thing I'm not sure about is the ramp stairs. But it's really fun to play !

I did some retexturing and minor tweaks. I think this is "good enough", so if I do not get any major complaints this will be the final version.

it ran for a time, but when I move into a specific room it crashes.

That sounds bad. Didnt catch it while testing. I jumped around on the map for at least 15 minutes so if you have any additional info It would be good.

Weird. What client are you using? Maybe I can replicate with the "right" client.

EDIT:

Managed to replicate the crash. Thanks for the feedback.

I found an "empty" func_wall which for some reason crashed some clients.

I didn't get around to create any. Is people playing against bots still?

If someone wants to step in and create waypoints that is fine by me.

I played it yesterday 2on2 and I loved it!

great flow in the map, lots of speedjumping, good balance imo, it's great fun. perfect for 2on2
its a clever design imo. the only thing that doesn't convince me is the quad position/location. its too easy to defend? im not sure. maybe make an "island" on that room, like u did with mega?
never argue with an idiot. they'll bring you back to their level and then beat you with experience.

The quad is very spammable from the "balcony" using GL. So if you are late for quad it is possible to at least deny it.
