nice job :) I would have placed you third personally.
4th is pretty much what I expected, the places I lost points are absolutely the weaknesses of the map. I lost big points for no ambient sounds, which is real sad because I even had that on my little notepad tasklist and never did it and I feel like a big dummy :D
But yeah! Go play the top three maps (and fKd's map!), those are all very nice q3 maps!
Overview Link Is Wrong
Looking forward to trying these out once I get back home after the holidays. :-)
Have To Say
the gameplay on Goldleaf is very addictive, even though the looks are a bit uninspired IMHO.
Not when you're competing with mapcore pro environment artists who can paint an entire texture set at 8:1 texel scale in their spare time, no, but I thought it was really neat how the deft addition of some arches and pediments turned an otherwise colorless batch of evillair textures into a clever theme. Makes a good contrast with the other greco-roman map in the pack, which went for a full-on ionic column colosseum and stumbled hard.
Yeah There Were A Few Maps
that were more environment art than DM map.
