Here we have a very interesting map! At first glance, the name ‘South tower’ may not seem particularly interesting, but trust me when I say that this map has quite a few surprises!
When I first saw this file I was puzzled as to what the name actually meant, after all a ‘south tower’ could be pretty much anything to do with ‘towers’ of any kind. However, upon testing the map out I found that it was very interestingly made.
Firstly, the Cyrillic symbols scattered around must mean that this map has some relation to Russia / Eastern Europe; either the author lives there and speaks that language, or the map is based off an actual building in that region. Personally, considering the architecture of that map, I would say it is the latter. Although, it could be both!
Anyway, before I start getting too deep into architecture and culture, lets have a better look at how the map is built.
Basically what we have is a large courtyard – including some nice pond type areas – surrounding the main building. In the middle of the main building is…a large tower! This I presume is the reason for the map being called ‘South Tower’. The map is well laid out and would be excellent for an FFA of any kind, either with sabers or guns, since there is plenty of areas to hide in, and lots of cover too.
Now onto the overall look of the map. Overall, the texturing is pretty simple, but I think it looks great! The buildings look realistically textured and the textures and colours all fit together nicely. I do think the map could so with some more custom textures here and there, but all in all the default JKA texture sets have been used to good effect. :)
As far as improvements are concerned, personally I think there should be some more custom textures, and also bot routes. Bot routes are a small thing, but I really feel that add a lot to the overall polish of the map.
All in all though a really good map here and the custom music used is absolutely fantastic! Good work Alice, I look forward to seeing more maps from you in the future! :)
