    The changes after Release Candidate 1:
    - Fixed a few collision bugs
    - Improved AI path finding
    - Fixed two small visual bugs

    I am going to upload the PS3 version very soon, after I finish the testing.

    After playing / test many versions since a long long time, damn, the final is truly a unique piece of work :D

    I remember the first versions (which was nice even at there early stage) & was wondering how it will turn on in the end.

    There are many aspects that is truly different from the rest. I didn't check the map in the editor so since there is many ways of doing things, I just want to comment on few things.

    For example, the lava heat effect is very convincing. Dunno how you've done it but it's by far the best heat effect I've saw in years.

    Same thing for the snow effect, very nice & convincing, never saw that kind of movement since we usually see snow falling straight vertically instead horizontally with a sort of wind effect that make the snow spinning with a nice variation in movement.

    The custom jumpad is looking awesome & fit's with the level (glowing is a nice effect btw).

    The teleporter is also very well done. All custom stuff are jaw dropping & none the less.

    As mentioned before, I love the layout & the enhance lighting make the level look way better. Now, the lighting is awesome & less uniform which provide better shadows across the map.

    Only point about lighting (& it's not a complaint, only something I notice ) is the light source radius is way to much. In various spots, a simple flame or 2 can't light a huge room like it's the case. But anyway, it look good anyway.

    The contrast between the blue / red is really amazing. Love the transition between inside / outside the map (lighting / materials / map construction, etc).

    Another first is that your preview screen are videos. I've saw pics changing in various maps but it's the first time I see vids for the preview screen. Again, very well done & even more surprising is that the map file size isn't bigger than the average.

    In all, this is a masterpiece. Unique look, unique features, awesome atmosphere, awesome lighting, killer layout, it flow well & gameplay is very fun, what can I say more ?

    I was please to add it to my top picks yesterday !

    Many THX for this unique work of art & mapping lesson :D

    OMG Finally! \o/ I remember testing the very first shapes of this one back in the days of UCMP... 4?
    I really like the texture style from your UT3 maps. This one has turned into one of the best DM maps out there and a must download for everyone who is still interested in UT3 (and maybe for those who are no longer interested aswell... :p)

    I remembered the days too;p
    so I made a picture combining the screenshots at the same location of the different versions (5 of them). You can see how time has been "wasted" on this one :p

    Thx! I though this one had a good layout so it deserved to be finished. But many other beta maps I ever worked on were never so "lucky".


    I just wish I had made more maps for this game.
    :D

    Nice map but too big for the suggested playerload.

    Plus I love the Painkiller theme.

    I think 8 players (4 vs 4) should be enough for the size.

    Yeah, I was about to say...either Painkiller or Blood. I remember Monolith had maps like those in Blood, and those were spooky, yet fun.

    Yep- definitely remember play testing the very early version of this one- the pic from 2006.

    Awesome that you've finished it! The screenshots showing the progression is very cool. Would like to see that for multiple areas.

    Kudos, Moonflyer!

    What else can I say? It's a solid map in terms of visuals and gameplay.

    great map!

    The good preview shots is a prelude to a great map with a great music choice as well as good sounds from the crackling of fire to the wind and the "voices" telling me this map is a good one.:) The visuals of the fire, snow and heat look very professional also. The fire looks good in the lanterns also but with all that heat in the map surely the icicles would be melted by now.;) This map has good textures/meshes, lighting/shadows and trim with everything looking very clean. The cracks in the floor, custom teleporter and custom jump pads really contribute to the total map atmosphere. With all the great atmosphere in this one, the gameplay is good as well with classic gameplay, good flow and plenty of z-axis. I'm sure this one rocks online!
