    So... what could this be?

    Rotate to what seems to be the original orientation:
    BswrYLGIYAASAwQ.jpg large.jpg

    It's apparently something printed out in poster size. But what's that image got to do with UT, besides the label "Liandri"? It looks too detailed to effectively be part of the play area (as we learned, Epic don't want to clutter the maps with stuff like this anymore), so what is it?
    Unreal Engine 4 advertisement? A hint that there will be a UT movie?

    A washing machine from the future. All those bloodstains, they leave a mark.

    I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

    That and Alien. It almost feels like any of the nostromo crew can show up.

    I am a fan of this idea.

    Circular area, inner core? Looks very much like DM-Liandri to me.

    Slightly tweaked, but that's the map that came into my head the second I saw that pic.

    I don't think I like the art style at all.

    I am not fond of the baby diarrhea orange/brown 1960's earth tone. Otherwise It looks ok.

    Edit: It does rather resemble white pvc pipe doesn't it.

    Double Edit: -higher res.

    I'm not keen. I can't easily discern where the boundaries or even the shape of the room from a quick glance. This is all really bad for a fast paced arena shooter.

    Random piping never looks 'right' to me anyway. If you look at navy ships or industrial piping it all is obviously going somewhere. When pipes just plug into a blank wall it looks pointless or illogical. There ought to be an occasional cutoff valve too.

    Was it really that wise to post this pic on Reddit? I mean under regular development circumstances Epic wouldn't even admit the very existence of UT4 yet.

    It's getting pretty positive response so far, so I guess? I mean, I see what ambershee is saying. A few people have brought up good points about it... but this is just an example for inspiration. In general, I really like it.

    I do think that it's hard to discern edges, which is something Jim Brown has brought up in the past. But all that can be tweaked :)
