Stuff Clip Brushes 
Don't ever, ever, never ever use clip brushes on a map like this: it will totally ruin it - you're SUPPOSED to get caught on the jutty-out bits! You have to adjust your position just right within your location to dodge (say) Shambler attacks, and if you don't, you die. And if players are bored with dying they must, in reality, be bored with the game in general. And that may be the point in forums such as this: I wonder how many contributors are real, honest-to-God players?

Why should PLAYERS want the maps to be easier in layout terms: perhaps they are not players in the true sense but merely onlookers having to play through just to see the point of the map, examine architecture, see the quality of the build etc. I do very often see comments like "had to no-clip", "played in God Mode" etc. You didn't have to do that, you chose to. If you keep dying using one method of play should't you think differently?

Clip brushes have a place in map building but only to avoid 'accidental' snags or to assit the map builder in non-critical areas, but not just to allow the player to run through the map faster (speed running apart).

And here the rant do endeth.

Anyway, brilliant map, best for a long time. Didn't find any secrets as I was too busy with death - it took me 36 minutes and I never lost my way. Quake as it should be.

Well done CZG and thank you.

Honestly now, how long to build the map from start to finish?

You Make Interesting... 
...and possibly controversial points, FMB dood. 
Hoisted By One's Own Petard ... 
I was so keen to play the map that I "couldn't be bothered" to read the text. So, the jokes on me then.

However, perhaps "Been in the workings for maybe a few months" is like January to December? ( That's a compliment czg, 'cause I know I couldn't do it)

And, Shambler, the points really aren't meant to be controversial. But I do get frustrated to see so much effort going to waste because people don't 'play the game'. If people did try to play the game as it was meant to be played I am sure they would get even more enjoyment than they do just by looking around a map.

And that is why we must continue to encourage all of the new mappers, not tear them to shreds because we don't like their texture set (or whatever).

And, brothers, I feel a march coming on. Onwards and upwards, revolution is in the air. The proletariat is revolting!

Hm,

There are only 2 people playing Quake, yourself and someone else. The rest of the accounts are just the other posting as differant names.

Cor Lummey Mates... 
...I got on my high horse up above in #46, didn't I? But here I am six years later still going onwards and upwards. And still mapping (albeit v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y) 
Six Years Is A Long Time... 
Wow, you must be an all-seeing all-knowing oracle to know figures as accurate as that.

i want to stamp on this guy's face. 
 
had to replay again last night :p

Awesome work, just one question to Spirit...

If my maps are to dark what about this one?

I�m not complaining about the map lights!!! :) just to know what about this one to Spirit! 
 
Trinca, I would say light your maps how you want. That's all there is to it. Can't please everybody. 
 
I want to please Spirit in everyway possible!

I love him... chif 
Result: 
 
Duuuudette, it was about an unedited screenshot I posted of tchak which everyone found too dark. Generally that map lacked lighting contrast in my opinion. februus is dark but has nice contrast. Also it has no big plain open spaces, that helps.
