I'm glad that I found a forum like this! My favourite game is Quake2, so this is the best place to me! Especiallly, your maps are more and more professional and interesting, LeRay! Congrats!
I'm not a big, and famous mapper, my biggest project was a single player mission pack, a partial conversion, called Zorius Strogghold. Now I have a new DM map, I started it just for fun. The level itself almost finished. Item placement is under construction, and the clip brushes (from which many-many is needed, because of the tons of detail...) are also not presented yet. So now, first off all, I need some design comments from professional mappers. To make the final minor changes. Then I will quickly insert the clips, and the items, so the playtest can go. Can somebody (You, Leray?) take a look at it? Here are a few shots from yesterday night's latest compile:
Hope, You will like them, so You will be interested in it more deeper. (Unholy is just a working title, this is the latest one, because I already don't know which one will fit the map well from the dozens I figured out...)
well, you cant see how big and how good the fights can get when you look at some screenies...
of course... it's hard to tell anything about the gameplay with some screens. As I told, they're just to make You a bit more appetite. So now I need design commnets, not gameplay. That will be later. So, as I saw You're also a mapper (I want to take a look at your beta map!), do You want to see it LIVE and commnet the design?
I just downloaded your map. For first sight I think it needs a lot more detail and design improvement. The lights and shadows have to be more smooth. But I will take further view. My beta map is uploaded, the address will be posted in private mail. Of course, do not modify anything, and don't send it to anybody, or make it available to anyone. All comments are highly appreciated.
i know, im not good at this light/shadow settings!
but im thankful that u told me...cuz now i know that i need to change a little at the map...and im already doing it...
edit: Your map looks really good! It's just that, its something that i dont like on it, and i dont know what it is...maybe its that u made the light textures trans_66...
but first of all, for that tele that make you go to the roof, i would make a clip around the roof so u cant fall and walk around on the skyground..it look just to silly..and also then u need to make a clip where the tele is so u cant jump over it and walk outside from there!..
but its a good map anyway!

First of all: You didn't read my first post: there is not any clip brushes presented in it YET. But there will be! But before I do it,I want to finish the design totally, because if I change something after, then I have to modify the clips too. So there will be clips at the teleport, and the teleport destination
1. maybe won't be on the roof, now it's just a joke (gameplay is zero now) 2. if yes then I have to make the bottom looking great, for example rocks base or sg.
But I think, the teleport won't be on the roof, and the player won't be able to fall out anywhere on the map. But anyway, thanks. I won't forget it.
And the light. It's a trick. I made it that way. It's just for fun. Because noone did it before ;-) And I hate those bright texture lights, but many people said the point lights was shit. So I tried this and it's funny.
I will take a closer look to your map, and will give You more advices on the lights (but exactly, it's not my business either...so I'm also not soo good in it, like You)
Oh guys, thank You all. But I REALLY don't think so that this map could take part in this contest... the first thing is why: I posted hundreds of shots in very different forums all around the world. I don't think it would be fair play to the others.... So next time maybe.
LEray. Thanks for your words! It's a very big honest to see your words about my map! Of course, You can test it online! I'll send You private the link. Guys, it1's good to see that people still love Quake2...
Guys, You are rezlly great faces! Thanks that You liked my shot soo much. I wouldn't thought You will, because in another forum (http://www.celephais.net/boards and in the forum the screens and betas topic, check out) everybody scattered their hurting critique on me... maybe they are right a bit, but I know I'm not a professional mapper and my map won't be perfect. But I love to make it, and to give it to You, to see You like 'em, and play 'em, it's the greatest pleasure for me, so bad guys (not You here!) don't take this away from me! But here... all the people said just lovely words. Thanks! I hope You won" be disappointed after seeing it live! So Wixen1, the link goes in pm. bye
