    Name: SP-District
    Game: Gears of War PC

    Description:
    This was a small level I designed as part of a design test for Epic as part of their hiring process. They gave me permission to release it to the public so here it is :) The level is pretty small only about 5-10 minutes worth of gameplay. Read the readme included with the map on how to install it.

    I just gave this a run through.

    I really like your architecture and the cover is laid out really well. There was only one doorway that I couldn't pull up to, but I didn't even need to (the doorway right before the door that leads to the troika).

    I also liked that your rubble didn't look terribly unnatural, that tends to happen with these quick SP levels.

    I agree the architecture looks good. Lighting...well this is just me so feel free to ignore it but seems like only the orange color is prominent.

    Are there are other colors for shadows and variation of the sunlight? It could be that screens aren't showcasing those as well if they are there.

    I would make more if the editor was not so frustrating.

    Been playing with Source SDK these days and 0 crashes...

    In the time I worked with the Gears Editor had 100's of crashes
    And UT 3 a few here and there...

    I'm really liking the architecture you've got there. Can't say the same for the amount of brown. Gj nonetheless

    Yea I had a butt load of issues with the AI doing crazy stuff with cover places you'd think they wouldn't use so mostly all of them had to be removed that were being abused by them, that was one of them :p

    There are definitely some color variations through out the map and the shade is a little blueish tinted but it could have used a whole lot more contrast.

    No, sadly I wasn't accepted but that only means I have to work twice as hard before I apply there again :) Iv'e waited about 5 years to apply to them till the point I thought I was ready but I guess they don't think I'm ready yet so I'm willing to wait another 5 years if thats what it takes :)

    I would have loved to take this and really build more unto it and turn it into a full fledged level but it's really discouraging working in an editor that crashes as much as this does, kinda sad cause its a lot of fun mapping for :(
    Thanks for the comments guys :)
