Well, here we have a small, but nice duel map made by Falgard.
Graphically this map is very nice, the use of the red light texture and red lighting and the stone texture go together very nicely. The architecture is also nicely done, and the window at one end of the room is a nice feature.
There are also a couple of nice interactive things here. There are two buttons at the window end of the room, press one and the floor in the center of the room will open up, press the other one and a pad will rise out of the floor. I always like some interactivity in a map, and this was a nice touch ;)
As always though there are things that could be improved upon. But being only a small duel map there’s not really that many, only a couple that I could think of Infact. One, I noticed the light fittings on the ceiling are square, and have a square recess in, where the light texture is applied. But the light on the texture is round. So there’s a round light in a square hole. Although this looks pretty good from directly underneath, if you go to certain positions around it, as you move, the sides of the circular light texture will disappear as the edge of the square light recess goes over the texture. If you know what I mean (sorry it’s a bit difficult to explain lol). So you end up with a circle with a bit chopped off the side. It’s not really that noticeable however.
The other thing was that this map is very small, even for a duel map. But, Falgard tells me that he is working on an FFA version of this map, and so far it looks pretty good, so I will look forward to playing that map! :)
All in all a very nice little duel map!
