Element Of Chaos, and I'd have to agree with the author on this, because the feeling you get in this map, is not one of doom and gloom. So, like the author stated (see readme), the name actually fits well.
The map itself is uses several custom textures to create it's mood. I will say off the bat, my favorite aspect of this map would be the sun beams coming through the windows hitting the floor. Very nice touch there. The architecture in this map is fairly good with details used here and there throughout. The only thing I'd suggest is, theres to many direct line of sight places in this map. Meaning, poor fps when facing those ways. By creating turns, you allow yourself to use fps helpers like distancecull or hint brushes. Even doors as a last resort could have area portals to help. Well, there is one more thing. The stairs are to steep. I went down the stairs and never hit one of them because of the angle.
Now, having said those things, I will say this map is pretty. Simple in design, with some things (windows!!! love um!) that totally reinforce the atmosphere. His use of textures were very good, especially the embossed emperor ones.. almost missed them.
Nice map Psycho IV, alittle change in structure, or somthing to raise the fps up in areas, and this would be a really nice map!
