    I think if you removed the lighting in the upper area, and increased the lights in the lower area (as well as use a lighter floor texture, these are so 2004) this would improve the look a lot. Some spots would be great. I haven't played the map yet so I don't know if the upper area is walkable or not. Usually area that aren't walkable should have less contrast and should be less lit. Here it's the same color/lighting everywhere so nothing really catch the eye. Just my 2 cents.
    The second screen is fine but some more rocks and grass wouldn't hurt I guess. EDIT: also add some leaves under the tree

    Thanks for testing everyone
    Somebody asked about lighting. Here's some screenshots of what I tried so far

    That last pic is from yesterdays playtest, but I've increased the sun angle a bit since. The reason I chose this over the second pic is shadow advantage for CTs.
    Other changes:
    Breakable window on B short is now not breakable CT spawn had some room for optimization but T is as good as it gets Added some wires hanging throughout the map Fixed bombstuck and floating barrel at mid Fixed some clipping and loose nodraws, hopefully more when I get chat transcript or demo Added glowsticks at the bottom of A site elevator shaft. The last thing to do left is soundscapes.

    You could try removing the big red lines, they just seem a bit incongruous with the overall theme. Other than that I think it looks very nice.

    Today I decided to kill one of my projects. It's been running for too long and I find that making maps for the Unreal Tournament-community doesn't give all that much considering how long time it takes to develop maps. Was planning to replace all flat surfaces with meshes with vertex painting materials, do some proper lighting etc. However, I feel I need to focus my creative efforts on commercial projects and thus I'm killing this one and I won't ressurect it.

    Oh man, it's good to see other people here playing with substance. I finally caved and started getting into it a bit over 2 months ago, after eyeing it cautiously from a distance for a while. I think I've developed some kind of addiction now. This is the first one I've finished that I really feel is worth showing off though, everything generated inside Substance Designer.

    It's got a pretty hefty graph. I guess it is essentially 2 substances combined though between the rock and the foliage.

    Hello, back again already!
    I've worked on a feature to generate flowmaps of the playtest. Heres an example on the map De_Aviv

    The intention is to help in the ability to see very clearly the common paths across the map, and high traffic areas such as chokepoints.
    I will be refactoring the code shortly to show off paths direction (colour fading along line), to increase readability!
    This is not available publicly anywhere else, so if you would like one of a previous playtest from the mapcore server, please contact me!

    Hey everybody, thanks for sticking around. I finally had the time to put together a first greybox. Here's a couple screenshots!

    Some timings are still off and there are indeed some very bad sight lines still present (like the one @Goatacus pointed out, thanks) so there's still more to do. Roofs are missing, the map is not going to be open like that obviously.
    Any thoughts?

    Yes, this looks better.

    I dont know if you already wanted to block the view from the higher ground along the red lines? Id suggest it. Otherwise it could get really difficult to hold A.
    Maybe the yellow passage should be a one way passage from "ct spawn" to the "control room". The loss of this blue sniper line could make it easier for Ts.
    Depends on the way youd build it. One option could simply be a catwalk above the orange line in the control room. This catwalk could be connected to theCT spawn
    but not avaiable from the connector. Below the catwalk could be the big display board of the control room. im sure you had your own ideas for this room already.
    imho this is a good 2d layout. we can find more shortcomings in the greybox playtest.

    a more realistic option could be a photonic propulsion laser launchpad.
    this technique allows us to push a 100kg unit to mars within some days. and its feasible with the technology we have today.
