Very nice work, looks like the best version of this map Smile

However, it seems that lightmaps are broken, and deluxe maps look even worse.  It looks OK if I disable them, but they are on by default, and it would look better with proper shadows.

Also please replace the pipes texture, the one used in the arch windows and lower parts of indoor walls.  It's ok on the ceilings, but looks bad in the windows and on the walls.


Nit picking:
These corners on the insides of the doors are annoying, you can get stuck on them:
   

These curved bits look weird because their textures are cut off by the curve:

Hi. Will comment on version 1.05.

FIrst of all I would like to say that this is probably the best looking map I have seen on Xonotic. Everything fits together perfectly in terms of looks.

Now gameplay and layout wise I haven't tried this map with other players. But I have played similar map, so I guess I could make some comparisons with The Yard by Cortez: http://dl.xonotic.fps.gratis/the_yard.pk3
In terms of layout your map feels a lot narrower, but a lot taller. I kinda hate open maps and love vertical maps, so I would say it's a good thing. Your version also has more solid ground to stand on, which makes more room for fighting, which is also good. Use of warpzones is also welcome from my point of view.

Now I have some issues with your map:
  1. Why no electro, hagar & mortar? Seriously. Kinda understand maps omitting one weapon (like no vortex on warfare), but omitting 3 weapons?
  2. Too many good hiding spots. Breaks (already broken) LMS, and indirectly encourages goofing around. Some of the best hiding spots I found:
    [Image: vXimtRL.jpg]
    [Image: Qkoeut8.jpg]
    [Image: vm7N3jf.jpg]
    For that I would suggest lifting trigger_hurt zone.
  3. Parts with floating tiles. I kinda dislike that you can fall through the cracks such as here and on the platform above megahealth:

Finally, I would repeat that it is a beautiful map. Something that I find even more impressing is that it seems like you limited yourself to only default Xonotic textures, which is even more impressive. Keep up the good work!

Also, do you know if any widely-played servers already host this map?

Thank you for responding.
Ye, about places for hiding - last time for me it's confusing too. I've found some texture bugs, and update this map soon. Of course - I will make hurt triggers a little bit upper now.
About hagar/electro - I'm not using them a lot, (electro I've never using because doesn't found it useful for duels, which I'm prefer to play). Maybe hagar will be good, and maybe I'll replace my "shaft-simulator" as machinegun, but IDK, is it a good idea Big Grin
And with falling through floating tiles - it was idea of this part of place, making some strafes maybe harder, maybe easier for this Big Grin
I haven't ever fall through them, and they looking for me awesome Big Grin
This map, I've heard, hosted on BFGFun, but I haven't enough ping for playing there without troubles Big Grin
