    Definitely, yes. Given two thumbs down is reserved for maps that are crap in virtually every aspcet, like uh... DM-Warzone][?

    whoa never thought id hear ya guys go that route... (not sure if anyone is ever serious here tho :)) but im glad ya did...
    if a map is a tech success thats cool, but making it break a review score if its not is kinda not cool...

    i was always surprised that no mappers ever got together and did strictly technical reviews of maps...

    Yeah sunspire rocks!

    Who is selecting the maps for the countless reviews. There are quite a few average to good maps to be reviewed, but they prefer to write about maps, you know from a short glance at the screenies thy are $hitty

    No fear Nalicity-you can be closed down still a half year, this site will not make you forget

    "One can't give a map like DM-Ghostmine a thumb down.
    And if one does it is idiocy, nothing short of it."

    No rabid, what IS idiocy is a map like DM-Ghostmine getting NC hotlist.

    Ya, we were scrapping the barrel that day and was meant to teach a noob reviewer a lesson. It was latter removed after it had served its purpose. I won't even mention some of my boo-boos.

    is it an 8.5?
    no, probably not. having had the map in my personal rotation for a few months now, and also having played it on nc's hotlist server a bunch of times, I guess it is something rounded up to seven.
    but:
    1) at a score of 7 it still would have made the hotlist, assuming there was a narrow choice of higher-rated maps.
    2) I have not then seen, and I still don't now see the point in that 8-points barrier. doesn't make sense to me, and I don't care how people see it. it says in our review schema that we range from (0) 1-10. not 1 - 8, nor -3 - 7 as some seem to like it.
    3) I take the liberty of squeezing in an extra half point or so for maps that at least try to be different.
    4) right before posting what you quoted above was the first time I had been to Sunspire, so there prolly were some harsh feelz involved in posting that. interestingly, though, I remember very well that already two or three days later it dawned on me that sunspire does not matter, and that getting emotionally engaged over it was a waste of my time.

    "being different" has nothing to do with sucking big-time.
    there are things that suck big-time which are your regular assembly line product, just as there are things sucking big-time which "are different".
    likewise you have maps not sucking big-time being "ye olde industrial mappe", and maps not sucking big-time being "different".
    whether or not a map is "different" has no influence on whether or not it sucks big-time.

    im sorry, but "different" maps, may or may not usually suck...but not because they try to be different. usually for completely different ;) reasons...
    which is pretty much what rabid was trying to say. i think.

    Re: Sunspire Codex ...

    Well, I just checked out the Sunspire Codex (S C)
    map reviewing syte.
    .
    I must say that I don't really care for it.
    (maybe I am just used to N C)
    They really should have a field for users to voice their opinions
    of the map. (a feature of N C which I really like)
    And that "thumbs" review thing they use is not as descriptive as
    the 1-10 scale which N C uses.
    .
    .
    I just joined the N C message boards... a whole lot of
    friendly and helpful people frequent there. :)
    Given what I've seen on their boards, it is doubtful if S C can
    ever match that. :p
    .
    .
    Anxiously awaiting the release of the new Nali City!!

    :biorifle:




    :cool:


    P.S. ... I have never liked Game Spy. :p

    Re: Sunspire Codex ...

    Well, I went to the mapping question forum over at
    Sunspire Codex and was met with a blank page. :(
    .
    .
    There are some friendly and knowledgable people who frequent the N C boards that are more than willing to answer UT mapping questions. Thanx everyone!
    .
    In my opinion, Sunspire Complex has a long, long way to go to match the following that Nali City has. :D
    (and I said so there too ... :p)
    http://www.forumplanet.com/planetunreal/sunspire/topic.asp?fid=4077&tid=511994
    .
    It is always great to have more options but, I think that
    Nali City will always have a leg up on them.
    Unless they take forever to get the new syte up.
    Wait, it has seemed like forever since Nali City was in full on mode. :(
    .
    Let's hope it is up and running soon. :D

    :biorifle:

    LX... you're beating a very dead horse.

    Your post in their forums... you didn't make any point whatsoever. With the two minutes it took you to type that you could have done something productive like picked up your room or massaged your mother's corns.

    Leave them alone... they can go do their thing while we do ours. We'll be active soon enough.
