I'm going to tell it to you straight. There was [b]nothing[/b] in this map which I could find to praise. Absolutely nothing. With the slight exception that the secret entrance to the 'Mapper's Room'

was a nice idea. I could list all the errors in this map, but frankly, that would be boring for me, and tedious for you, so I'm just going to point out the main ones. Misaligned, missing, oversized, and misplaced textures. No shadows or atmospheric lighting whatsoever. Architecture - blocky to the extreme. A misunderstanding of how to create water, unclipped stairs, models not aligned to the floor properly, gaps between brushes, teleporters without destinations... Okay I'll stop, thats way more that enough for the author to be dealing with at the moment, especially considering this is his first map. But I just stress again, maps of this quality shouldn't really be submitted, you aren't going to get a good review simply because you're new to the whole experience. The texture work is something the author is going to have to figure out for himself. The levelshot must be dimensions of the power of 2, and have the same name as your .bsp file. Water must only have the water texture on the top and bottom - caulk_water on all the other sides. To give doors sounds, apply the key :soundset, and value: impdoor1 (or similar) Use lights, and don't use ambient lighting. Don't mix grasssy floors with snowy walls. That alone should improve your map no end. Then you'll need to work on improving your skill with radiant - building more detailed structures, start to use patch meshes e.t.c. As you may have guessed, there's also no bot routes, background music nor ambient sounds. I don't mean to sound overly-critical here, but this map isn't an example for anybody else to follow. And next time, if you include the Jedi Council GCX textures that were missing from this pk3, make sure you include the readme for that file, as per our submission policy.
