Station 5 is a small indoor duel map set in some kind of small control station hub. I would have thought it was some kind of imperial design by the wall textures, but the after seeing the freaky lighting scheme I thought differently. Although you get the feel of a small station, it feels...cramped. Not too cramped to actually duel in...but you just end up feeling a little ‘squashed-in.’
The Architecture is fairly basic, but it's quite solid. What let the map down somewhat are the texturing and the lighting. Some brushes and walls are okay, but there are others, such as the pipe texture and the walkways which really don't work at all. Some of this mismatching is emphasised by the almost disco-like lighting contrasts between blue and red. Furthermore, there was some misaligning on the lifts among various other sections, and the generators didn't really look in place. The ambient noises included in the pk3 did add a little atmosphere though. :)
It's a fairly good attempt at a duel - certainly for gameplay the layout is very well made, with multiple floors and a good area for flat-floor duellists. Perhaps a little more room might have been a good idea, but that's really down to the personal preference of each dueller. What wasn't a good idea, as I've said countless times before, is the lack of bot support. Get it in there people, it's not difficult!
