Here we have a new map from Sir_Ryan. Keeping to the battle theme of his recent maps, this one is entitled ‘Battle Complex’.
This map does exactly like it says on the tin…it’s a complex for battling in! The map is split up into several areas, which are reachable through teleporters infront of colour coded doors. So the blue door teleporter will take you to an area that is lit up in a blue light, the red door teleporter to a red area and so on.
The map is quite maze like, I found I got lost quite easily. Though that may well lead to some interesting FFA’s, if you get lost, and then accidentally bump into one of your opponents… That chance encounter could lead to a furious battle in the winding passageways! Also on the plus side, the map the same custom music that the author has also used in his other recent maps, which fits the maps theme well.
The various coloured areas correspond to different materials too. For instance, the red areas have lava, the green areas have acid, and the blue areas have water, which I thought was a nice touch
There are quite a few things in this map I feel could be improved upon however. For one, although the maze like structure could lead to some interesting games, it can also be quite frustrating, because it is difficult to find your way around. :(
Another thing is that the various coloured textures are very bright, and are solid colours too. Something more subtle would look good, with maybe hints of the different colours, rather than re-colouring the whole texture.
Lastly, the structure of the map is quite blocky, I really think some more architectural detail would be good. This is only a v1 however, so I’m sure if the author decides to make a v2 it will be refined further.
All in all though, an interesting map for FFA’s here. I hope to see more maps in the future from you Sir_Ryan! :)
If you guys like the look of this map, then give it a download!
