Sorry EG, but I don't know these very well. I primarily want to look at original UT Maps, as well as small Custom maps ;-)

HallOfGiants is a default UT map ...but it's indeed not that small.

thanks for sharing the missing texture pack :)

the maps look amazing! I really like the style you've developed; everything is very clean and minimalist, leading to solid gameplay. And your Skyboxes are spectacular.

=

I have some minor critiques though, as well as a few things that need fixed:
  • With Curse, since there is no Minigun on the map, I think there should be some enforcer clips added since they share ammo.
    This would also be good for mod support that would swap out the Enforcer.
    This is of course a personal preference, if low use of the enforcer is a gameplay mechanic to this map then by all means you do it how you want.
  • The Top Floor ledge with the sniper rifle has some bsp errors.

  • The Top Floor also has a low invisible / sky backdrop ceiling that blocks anyone using the jump boots from the ledge. I think it would be better to raise that ceiling since the BONK factor breaks immersion.

  • With Malevolence, I think it looks amazing and it is structurally sound. I'm thoroughly impressed, but I noticed some texture misalignments.
    The ones that really stood out are the ones by the ramp leading up to the pulse gun.

  • It is important to remember that when you're making minimalist maps with a lot of 45 and 90 degree angles that unaligned textures stick out like a sore thumb.



Keep up the good work! I'm excited to see the rest of these maps :gj:

Hello there,( @darkbarrage99 ) , and thanks for the useful feedback! ;-) I really appreciate that you have taken the time to do this, and maybe it can make me better in the long run too.- Having said that, there are thousands of details in a Map, so I am quite satisfied in that I don't see any major mistakes.
- Malevolence texturing is a choice, made during construction, but as I see now in retrospect, maybe something different looks better, but I'm not thinking of changing this now.
- Curse][ , I see the point of jumping shoes from the ledge , but usually you don't use jumping shoes to jump down. It's a bit like if you use them indoors, - then you go to the ceiling..but .. As for the BSP problem on the roof, it is the first time I have seen this, but as long as there is no conflict for the game, it will not be rectified at this time either.
- If you would like to join as a Map Tester, please contact me via PM.! :D
