indeed it does.

I do have a few pointers though, mostly regarding aesthetics.

1) the skybox seems to clash with the rest of the map. Maybe something with a bit of orange glow would be more appropriate, but that's just me.

2)the lava texture seems a bit odd, and you could probably find a better one, but again, that's just me.

although what would be awesome would be an animated lava texture. Wink

I disagree with you. Blue skybox seems to me well contrasted against orange lava - that are the coulours of Xonotic Smile Looks like this is going to be a main official map Wink

Maybe panning layers of a shader?

well, maybe he can help by bringing the color of the skybox down into the map. just have some blueish tinted panels. nothing dramatic, just a little hint here and there.

just a thought.

it looks really good. imo there is too much of this yellow-black-warning-....erm, you know what i mean Smile too many maps use that.

as theShadow said, the lava looks a bit odd. and the skymap has a low quality.

the lighting is really good Smile

Loving it so far, with some work this would be a fantastic 1v1 and 2v2tdm map and I'm not saying that to be polite.

However there's a major problem, I think item placement needs work. There is a crazy loop you can use to completely dominate the map. Basically, with some practice to not get stuck and slowdown at the right places, if you laser-out of the rocketlaucher room you can very easily string pick up: rl, mega armor, electro, nex, crylink, mortar and small armor all in under 5 seconds, and come back to rl before it respawns. I'm not sure what to suggest, but maybe moving one of those weapons to either the megahealth room (maybe on the ledge where there's 2 rocket boxes?) or the room with lava and ammo would help. There would be a bit more distance between them and make it impossible (or at least much harder) to pick up all weapons and come back to start point to pick them up as the respawn again.

Visually I love the map, nothing to say there.

EDIT: I think rl and nex are fine where they are, but for other weapons maybe moving one to lava/ammo room (that room could use an important item, but I like that there's no hp/armor there) and another in MH room would spread out weapons quite nicely. I would move mortar for sure.

Spoke to Cortez about this, happy to go over the map with him when he is next online and say where I think he should move some of the items too (mainly ammo and shards/health..like the mortar is not good at the moment).

Think it could be a good 1on1 map too, but i'm guessing the amount of lava around will piss people off will add a lot of luck to it.
