Don't believe for a moment that a ton of screenshots mean that I think it's a good map. In this case, it just means there's a lot I want to show you and talk about.
So I spawn on this platform and see some castle-like structure with some mismatched textures on it. I'm already a bit disappointed, but I remind myself that this is a clan map. So I make my way to the front door and make note of the terrible lighting. In the main room is a large platform for dueling and it's not exactly practical because of the lighting. Okay, let me back up for a moment. Maybe the lighting isn't terrible. I don't really know if it is or not, technically. I just know I can't stand it. So then I find the room with the models that really don't belong there. And a brick wall with a floor that just doesn't work together. Aha! The yellow lighted area signals there's a room downstairs. So I follow the really, really, really narrow staircase down to a bar.
Now, why is there a screenshot of this picture of Nirvana? Nirvana is a big influence in this map. So I thought I'd point that out. I'd also like to point out that they're all smiling. Which just seems to be a contradiction to me. Grunge and happy grins. Weird. Anyway ... surprise, surprise ... bedrooms for clan members! What I love is that one guy has a heart-shaped bed in his room. LOL There's a room downstairs that's a bathroom, but it's quite ... celebrated, as you can see. Apparently there's a sound attached to it, but I didn't listen to it. Totally not interested. Then there's a huge room that's like, one big pool. Outside there's a fountain and like, some really bright grass. And nothing more, really.
Maybe I missed something. Maybe there's something greater here that I overlooked. I don't think so though. On top of all of that, there's some z-fighting. In the readme, the authors say that if people like this map, there will be a version 2. That's kinda silly. I'd say that if people don't like this map, you should revisit it and make a second version. And if my opinion means anything at all, get to work on that second version.
