Ah, I love nighttime maps. Something about the starry sky or something like that. Ruins are awesome too. And now Isla's gone and combined the two So what have we?
Well, there's a courtyard-like area with some broken architecture and an angular halfpipe (an aqueduct, maybe?) supported by arches. There's also a little hole in a wall, lit by some glowing orbs. In that hole is another hole that drops you down into a subterranean tunnel, also lit by aforementioned orbs. As far as architecture goes, that's it.
Now for the good, the bad and the undecided. On the plus side, it's got great music. This nice, slow track, suitable for the gloomy atmosphere. Which is another plus. On the bad side, it's awfully dark. Now, since this is a night map, it should be. But no map should be so dark that one has to bright up their screen to the point where all colors look washed out simply to see where they're going. As for the undecided, that's the architecture itself. It's got promise, lots of it, but needs some corrections. Isla admitted that he's gonna make it less random, so I suppose that's taken care of. If you're a fan of dark and gloomy, you can get your very own copy of it in a matter of minutes.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Put the pk3 file in your base folder. DESCRIPTION: Dark ruins area. BUGS: hard to jump up the hole when you fall into the caverns and the light is a bit patchy. COMMENTS: Well, this took a while, and pushed my buttons, but I hope you enjoy it. I admit the architecture in the main area is... random...at least. I was able to find the lost map file for the map so i can continue it :) youve gotta play with dynamic glow btw, it makes the spheres really pretty :P Some things I will be doing for the next version: the extended area (its really huge btw) less randomness in the main area :P and I may try to fix the problem with the squareness of the hole, but it was hard enough making it like it is...
