This map should be very timely for those of you living in Seattle or the continental northwest. For those of us in the midwest enjoying 60-degree weather, we'll have to stretch out our imaginations. But don't worry! Your weather is coming our way! Soon we'll all be able to enjoy the snowflaky-goodness of this map. If anybody remembers the original version of Sub-Bespin, this version is basically a normal, run-of-the-mill version two... with a twist. SNOW!
Now I love snow, and I think it really adds a new dimension to this map. I really can't say I've ever seen a snowy Bespin map, at the very least. Now frankly if you want to get really technical, the idea of snow on Bespin is kind of silly because it's a gas giant and probably doesn't have those kinds of weather patterns... well I don't know about you, but I don't really care for meteorology, so let's just enjoy its uniqueness for now, shall we? I personally like the snow. The added ice-skating rink also adds to the wintery feel... and the bar in the middle certainly couldn't hurt!
As with the original map, this map still has several gun pickups, a bit of repetative texturing (especially on the exteriors of some of the larger buildings) and I'm pretty sure I even saw some z-fighting, but in spite of all that I still really like this map. It's been expanded significantly, and while a lot of the expansion simply adds open space, several new buildings have been added, and some previously inaccessible buildings now have interiors. I especially liked the building with the fire you could turn on and off. Must be a gas fireplace.
Oh yes, and that AFK section still strikes me as incredibly cruel. All it would take is one little push... :p
Overall I think this map would be a great addition to any server, especially a role-play server for the winter season. The minor errors here and there won't really affect game play, or be very noticible, really, and how can someone resist a map with a hidden rancor in it? Oh yeah, you heard me... now go find it!
