It looks a bit dull in my opinion. Work on the lights to get some more ambiance in there, maybe some interesting wall lights. Also try and make the shape of those windows(?) a bit more interesting, the rectangles seem a bit lackluster. Would love to see what else you have \.

I have been really busy, like I have to stay up all night just to get one section done. Sorry but I don't have the time.

It's really not that complex. It's actually pretty easy.

if you'd like i could take some pictures and post em

i like the whole idea of it, vary original

the b-hop should be farther from the landing spot cause you can just land on the b-hop platform and go from there

could use some better textures in my opinion, and also an explanation as to what your supposed to do
for like 2 mins i had no idea what i was doing, and that's not a good thing
i of course figured it out (most ppl would) but there are ppl out there that might not

also for some reason the first time i ran the map the red texture worked but then all the time after that it did not, must be a source problem

i did take some pics if you want me to post them just say so (i did not take any of spawn as you said you weren't going to use that)

thats the first level,
you see the little doors, every round its randomly decide which of the 4 is passable, for each set of 4 there's one passable each round

but that's just level one

i think i could be better (a lot better) but its a original idea and that makes it fun even if its really short

Yah, the first stage is extremely short, as i move on in stages, they will be longer and more complex.  It's really small, but that way i can keep it easy, and fun for the first stage. \

tried the new version and liked it.. looks good and the text at the start is pretty leet \
i know it's the first level but I think it should be a little harder. IMO->make the gap between each section longer (also with the first one possibly make the ramp longer, because it looks a bit weedy). after the target/bounce thing extend the room so you need some speed to reach the next platform and make that platform need a bhop to get to the end because as it stands you can just jump accross. Fun though.. hope you can think of some other stages and finish this hehe \

~i copied this from someone else. it's awesome~

Ok, so this is my newest beta, and might be the newest one for about two weeks.  Somehow, my steam pw was changed, so now I am getting it reviewed by valve.  So here's a beta, be as harsh as possible.  I changed it from both the sets of original screenshots.

Changes:
Redesigned from scratch.
Spawn included in 1st stage (still only first stage)
About 3-4 times as long as the earlier version.
Looks much better imo.
Note: There are no instructions yet, there will be some soon.

Well, I'm getting close to being about halfway.  I have the spawn, stage one, and stage two done.  Stage three is currently being worked on by the amazing zoomj, so i haven't been working on the surf, as I have decided to have each stage build on top of the other.  However, I have  been working on the jail, which is about 50% done, and if anyone has played the original, they can see my jail is a remake of surf_scoutknivez, which while it isn't an innovative jail, it will be imo a fun one, as I loved the original.
I still need to finish two of the corners, and the big central building.  However, this is just an update, for those of you that actually care \

Picture of jail:

Looks pretty cool, make sure you put in some nice walls, and some little obstacles inside.

Please move this to dead surf.  I have decided against releasing this map, however I am going to finish it.  The truth is that the community has died, whether i like it or not.  It's all skill surf this, skill surf that, and quite frankly, I don't think my map will make any differance to the community, and there is no use in releasing it.  If you are interested in playing it when it's finished, or even playing the first two stages, hit me up with a pm, and I'll be sure to hook you up.
