Map preview with my commentary
First of all. thank you guys for such a nice contest! I enjoy creating a map for UT.
It is the second map, I’ve created for this challenge, because I was not satisfied of the first one: the rooms where too small and the map’s shell was like crap. Therefore, before designing a new map, I decided to create some interesting arenas and to combine them after.
I started to playtest existing maps in UT, looking for some interesting areas. After I had finished, I drew a couple on my own.
Then I jumped right into an editor to build the first one. Then, I added more rooms. I play tested my map with bots after adding each of the rooms. I wanted to playtest it with my friends, but I had some problems with creating a server, hope I’ll manage to install it properly soon.
After I had finished all the rooms and created some interesting paths with the help of lifts, I placed bullets and powerups. The map still needs more ammo locations; I’ll work on this.
I am not sure with the theme of my map right now. Maybe you can help me with some ideas on this topic. For now, I simply marketed the rooms with different color lights to make it easy to remember for the player.
