This first file I'm posting is a duel map pack...with three map themes. The first map you are looking at is a nicely done rendition of Rift (the most popular map Raven released). I like the lighting, I like the flow...it seems a bit too constricted for dueling on but the theme and architecture is really good.
The second map, fairy_winter, seems to be based off of Hoth. The architecture and theme is very similar. It's a nice small map, not much room for jumping around in one of the rooms but good for close-quarters battling. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Great use of lighting, the level could stand to be just a tad bigger but overall it's a great job.
The third map, based on a forest, is the only one I have criticism for. It credits the authors of the Whoville map for use of the trees...unfortunately the textures for the trees were not included. So go download the Whoville map!!! If you didn't, you'll be subjected to the lovely black/white texture box. Moving on to the map, it's pretty much the exact same thing, only two outdoor areas connected via a hallway. It's a nice touch, nice theme...just a little bland. Some platforms and larger areas would have made the third map in this series great.
All in all it's great for dueling servers. If you run a dueling server these maps are a must-have.
