found this at unreal playground, a pretty nice map for large games. It's not the most mindblowing beauty of all time, but it's framerate is great for it's scale.

Looks very UT1-ish in terms of design. I'll give it a shot.

Well, I like the layout. It's very open...wide open spaces with narrow rooms and corridors. The "underground" intersection, which is the shortest route from flag to flag, has a super-powerup of random selection, which is nice. Weapon placement is OK...but the fact that if an attacker goes up the outside without a weapon, their first weapon will be a biorifle...which won't bode well if there's an attacker because the shock rifle is just up ahead. Ammo is in (over?)abundance, with 4 minigun, rocket and shock ammo in close vicinity. Only problem is the rocket ammo is several feet from the launcher, but you start with 21 rockets anyway so no big deal. Adrenaline is in short supply, which is a good thing in my view.

A couple quirks: there are some spots that lead to nowhere...extensions of a courtyard that just lead off to the side, raising questions about their intent. Certain corridors have entryways which, if you're not careful, you'll end up stuck between the doorway and the wall...particularly bad if you're a flag carrier. Outside the playing field the map looks unfinished: the walls are unlit and the ethereal purplish fog hides the lack of a skybox. The water extends beyond the outer wall as opposed to being contained within the wall...no big deal since you're playing within the wall anyway.

7 out of 10.

I miss ut99 because i remember it while it was new and people had priorities. Now i go in there it doesn't seem so populated like it was - (although it is sorta still populated). Besides i want to feel like i'm playing the game while it's "new". God somebody needs to smack me. I talk about stupid shyt
