Let the bots take a run at it, they handled the whole area really well. Seemed to go everywhere.

I'm a little fuzzy what's the deal with the 1 doorway that actually has a door in there. At the moment I'm thinking it's a death trap.

Nice little map - the only thing I would say to bear in mind for any future maps is the lighting. The lighting 'level' is uniform throughout the map (as can be seen in EG's screenshot) and doesn't have any relationship to the positioning of the lights - there is a need for a bit more subtley as it were - bright within a radius of the lights and less bright further away from the light sources.

Not a death trap but a pickup - if the bots don't go in there then that is/could be an 'issue'.

What is a weird concept is, the main way to see "3D" on a flat glowing surface, IS lighting.

Then they said, some game authors article, maybe Quake, but they said that the saying was "if it looks right, it is right".
Otherwise you can spend 30 years on one map and the more you change the more you keep trying to improve it, never ending, LoLzz
