The music was the first thing I really took point of in this map - firstly, it's like a pop song by Matchbox 20, not really duel fitting at all. Not saying it's a bad song, just not suitable for a duel map. Then I turned my attention to the map. As the name suggests, its basically a pit for duels, in an octagonal room, with a higher glass platform for duels with risk of falling off. As duel maps go, it is quite small, but there's still plenty of dueling room. I'm not a fan at all of the giant posters and scrolling black signs saying (0tt0) Furthermore, these scrolling signs are actually visible through solid rock - see third screenshot. What's that about :( The glass platform looks a little odd to, when combined with the textures used for the walls and floor. The floor was okay - the bottom of the pit is glass, slightly raised above a rocky base, with '0tt0' written in giant brush letters. Can i sugegst one thing at least - please clip the stairs (system/clip) texture in radiant - so your view doesn't go all jerky in-game when walking up them, as stairs are actually a slope in all default raven maps, they have an invisible slope going up them.
This really is a typical duel map for a clan in my opinion. Sure, for the clan that's fine, but for others I don't think you'll find it very appropriate, but whatever, try it if you like the look of it. Oh, and as I've said before, NOT having bot support in a duel map is absolutely unforgiveable! It really need to be here, especially when putting it in for such a small map isn't difficult - click HERE for the local tutorial.

Readme for duel_0tt0_pit ----------------------------- Info: Map name: duel_0tt0_pit True Map Name: (0tt0)The Pit Author: Ben Jones aka. Jones aka. Alchemist E-Mail: BJonesPK@Hotmail.com Web: www.x0tt0.com Details: 4th Map contributed/made Description: A simple duel map, and my first. Wasn't completely sure what to make, so I just kinda threw stuff in there. Usually duel with no force, so to get up on the invisible area, use your head...climb the 1st place platform, jump on the scrolling texture, walk around and walaa. Map Info: Meant for duel mainly but can also be used in FFA. No bots routes included. Designed for the clan (0tt0) New Sounds: Yes (Music--Matchbox 20: Angry) New Textures: Yes (always) New Shaders: Yep Installation: Put the duel_0tt0_pit.pk3 file into your Gamedata/base/ folder *Comments: My Fourth map actually contributed, not made. The map is not completely serious I guess you could say, I just felt like making a small map to keep my skills up. I hope to make a CTF for (0tt0) next, and so I have to practice with that as well. Seems like CTF would be tricky to make as you must make specific routes, and at the same time not make one route better than another. Long time ago I mapped for [RF] which was basically a fun/do nothing at all clan, so you can check those out as well if ya want. Credits: Me.
