right..theres this map...its been on nc for a while...but has yet to receace a review...its a largish download, (6 meg) but thats cos of a large texture pack...but its worth the effort. its a great fun map with inspiring design.


heres the catch. its dm-smallsoldiers. david m's forgotten map. he insists it sucks of course...

who wants to prove him officially wrong? ;) varpu? rabid?

dunno. what if he doesn't want it to be reviewed. (same issue with anybody else suggesting someone else's map for a review.)
anyway, I hated the movie, but really liked the playstation game. has it got something to do with the dreamworks thing at all?

7th Jan 2002, 04:59 PM
well..he submitted it to the nc review site didnt he?


just review it before he says anything...

that's so cheaply low, it's almost insulting.
I'll drop david a mail one of these days asking him if he'd mind.

it sucks when you wanna play serious

we played it on a lan with 4 ppl....spamfest mode....that was fun
but only for 2matches
at least 1000times better than kitchen, bathroom and all the crap with too big open spaces....that just sucks in terms of gameplay

its the definative me-small experience.

and wallpaper choices aside, it really looks quite cool.

12th Jan 2002, 05:54 PM
i had to use that wallpaper
you cant use a normal wallpaper in this engine

the engines lighting sucks too much
or instead you could use a 1024x1024 texture... :|
so i used the 'ghey' leopard one

actually, i rather like that texture..but its uite the entirior decorating faux pas...

i hate the "me tiny... room big" maps... they are all visually agonizing and flow like a cinder block in a tar river. HOWEVER... DavidM's smallsoldiers is visually impressive... ive DL this map along time ago... i hated it becasue it was a BigRoom style map but damn if he doesnt raise the bar about a million yards for all those lame ass bigroom maps...

Visually the maps attention to detail is mind boggling. The Author left no stone unturned...

Gameplay-wise i'd suggest no more than 2 players for this sick-small twister. they layout is original yet tried and true, space on ground, platform, bridges, all that jazz... but he incorporated it all into the Bedroom map. Unlike the other maps of this style you dont find a strange ramp somewhere and think... Hmmm, i dont have a ramp likethis in my room.... or... what the hell is this trampoline supposed to be???

but it still sux cuz its a bedroom map... :P
but youre alright kiddo!!
