surf_exclave
« on: June 11, 2013, 01:00:02 AM »
This is my new linear map.*I intended for this map to be easier, but I guess making it ruined my sense of difficulty. I did the majority of this map this December, and just recently decided to finish it. You can probably tell, especially with the end part, that this map was inspired by surf_underworld.
NJV because no one wants a jail on a map like this.
I've already started working on something else, I just wanted to finally release my first map because its been done for a while, and I was sick of starting projects and never finishing them.

edit*
Also I'm definitely trying to improve as a mapper, so i'll take all feedback.

Played and  beaten ~ 15 minutes.

Pros:
The map has a nice flow and is pretty smooth. The surf isnt to familiar and a wide range of textures.

Con:
Sometimes you break the flow of your map, missing alot of teles actually, starting stripped would be nice and sometimes the textures dont fit(didnt like that first floor texture for example),
And arrows would be REALLY nice

Good map

The map is pretty nice, although I hate the first ramp. The first ~20 seconds feel a bit awkward, but then it gets really fast and good.
However, I don't think it's easy. Did you test it on 100 tick instead of 66?..
Most people of the "lower level skill audience", as you call it, won't finish this.

PS: You don't need any arrows.

Whether or not you need arrows depends on whether or not you understand how to use visual queues

I think it's very easy to find the path in this map, I didn't have any trouble.

I'll be posting a fixed version once I figure out why valve batch compiler is freezing at the end of the compile.
Thanks for all the feedback so far, and I agree with most of it. I'll try to fix what I can, and i'll avoid these problems on new maps.

After 2 computer crashes, fixed version up.
-Fixed broken/missing teles
-fixed potential telehop
-spawn stripped

It shouldn't have been released with those problems, it's just that the latest vmf corrupted and I wanted to just get it released.

You mean combat surfers?
