Looks real nice. i got some suggestions though... nothing big, just some things i think would make the map cooler.

1. The map is supposed to take place in a volcanic area right? so then you should go all out to make it seem like one. for example, the lighting on the castle part makes it look like normal white lights. instead use red and yellow lights make it look like its supposed to look.

2. Static meshes use per-poly lighting. this is apparent in the top part of on of the towers in the first screenshot. it would be very easy to just add a BSP cube right above the static mesh just to take advantage of the lightmap system. simply align the textures correctly and move the powerup bases a little higher, and noone will be the wiser.

thaks for replys

@ Raffi intresting pionts iam not sure what u meen about the bsp cube but if it helps optimising the map then it worth doing an do value ur opinion on this

as for the lighting i have used natural light sources all thru the map on inside and out, using an emitter to make fire an smoke etc.. so yellow an orange suits that lighting imo
