File Description

This is a very large clan map that seems to have been made for the Renegade clan on request. When I say it's very large I mean it -- I'm fairly certain based on the read-me that I didn't see all of it, and I spent a good long time looking around. What I really noticed most of all, though, is that there is no overall theme to this map and that the style is inconsistent from room to room. This may perhaps be what the clan requested, but to me it simply make the map seem fractured.

My first thought on this map was "frozen temple... but there's lava and palm trees!" Potentially a moot point, but only a small portion of the map seems to have anything to do with the name. Most of the architecture seems sound, varied, and interesting, but I found myself not liking most of the texturing. None of it seemed to flow -- especially from area to area where the style often did a complete 180 -- and the doors especially bothered me. All the doors in this map look like walls until you bump into them and they open! This makes it very hard to move around until you get used to the door texture scheme.

I also felt the lighting in certain areas was below average, such as in the throne room with the Marka Ragnos statue. There no source for the big light splotches on the wall which wasn't something I expected to see from a well-versed mapper. Individually I'd say each room definitely has its strengths, but for some reason putting them altogether just seems not to make much sense and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.

As far as gameplay goes you better bring a lot of friends or you'll never have anyone to fight. The map is so big that apparently the author reached the brush limit and had to stop. It seems designed okay for gameplay, although there were some areas that I thought were a little bit confusing to maneuver through.

Overall not a bad map visually, I just got a disconnected feeling from it. It's still very interesting and well constructed so if you don't mind that no two rooms are alike then feel free to give it a download! There are only a couple of references to the clan that requested it so it may not be a big problem for non-clan members.
