Winter's Gift

Description:

Many of you will recognise the style of this map if you've ever played Christmas in Whooville or BlueIce, as there are a lot of similarities between those two and this. Does it surpass Whooville

though? Well, no. But it's still a good romp and it's definitely festive! :) My main gripe(s) about this map is basically the gameplay. Don't even try playing this with bots, your framerate will go down to about 12, and as standard it's usually about 25 in the central area. A framerate like this, for me, is just unplayable. However, in the other areas, the framerate is much improved - it's just the main central area. The other factor that brings this map down is the lighting and some of the textures. The classic 'light without source' problem is shown very plainly in the maze, but it is present throughout the entire map. :( Having said that, the map does look very pretty, save a few odd-looking shaders here and there, such as the light's on the Christmas trees. However, there is some really neat stuff here too, such as the new bauble models, the wooden cabin walls and the little playground. They won't make it any more fun to play, but they look great! The maze area seemed kind of pointless to me really - you can't fight in there, and you don't get anything for going successfully through it.... meh. The other secret area, the 'North Pole' looks no different from the main area in style, except its a lot smaller and has a ferris wheel! Okay, so it doesn't work quite right, as the platforms you stand on don't move in time with the spokes, but it's a nice touch. Other bugs present are some rather blocky looking hedges (which for some reason didn't have snow on them) some weird looking ice in the North Pole area, and the bots tend to get stuck in several places, so you'll have to go and hunt them down if they disappear for ages. :( But the main point about this map, I think, is to be festive and enjoy yourself. If you can play through the low framerate then I see no reason why you shouldn't check this map out; there's plenty of things to do (yeah, some of them are tedious and pointless, like the present hunt, seeing as most of them don't give you anything ;) ) but most of them are fun - specially sniping people from the cable car!
