[MAP] Catacombs

Hello, Red Eclipse community! My name is General Karnage.
I have been creating custom maps for this game for several years; however, I finally decided to set up an account and get my work out there! This is one of my favorite maps of mine, "The Catacombs". It is a small map, perfect for FFA deathmatches or survivor. Enjoy!

Welcome to the forums, GeneralKarnage.

I like the map's style, something between Fatony's Castle (you should mention that this one is an FFA map, too) and unixfreak's Occult (a custom race map with a goth theme).

Bell mapmodels for the torches are a nice idea (detail: You placed two on top of each other on each fire, probably not intended).

Some parts are a bit too dark for my taste - i know it suits the theme, but it's also good to see where you are going ;)
Some people will probably disagree with this point, though, and we also have darker maps in our default rotation, such as biolytic.

I think this map should be playtested online, it looks nice and polished, but I cannot judge if the flow is good.

Thanks, bonifarz!
I've tested this map with a few friends, and it works well. If you think it would make it easier for players to fight on, I can make the fog distance a bit larger.

I will upload some screenshots soon!

Screenshots posted. Enjoy!

If you want visible ambient, but you want a spooky-type atmosphere as well, making the ambient somewhat purple might help. (I'm really no fan of grey ambient)

Edit: some more thoughts...

The layout seems fine, I myself only know the basics tho.
I'm no fan of the long corridors, they can be shrunk safely in some parts of this map (by moving whole sections of the map a bit.
I think you really need more detailing, but thats usually a step for when it is sure that other problems are solved. Especially the ceilings get real problems with tiling when the ambient is higher.Also more lighting options rather than just torches might help, such as more openings in the ceiling.

The dark "look" is mostly fog actually, i would maybe have the same fogcolour as ambient. While experimenting, blu-ish and low purple ambients worked the best, even though they might look somewhat odd.

Sometimes, parcour seems too... ineffective to traverse this map, probably because the rooms are this gigantic, not sure if this needs to be fixed though. (Some pushers might help? Maybe a teleporter? not sure)
The map needs classic-weaponspawns.

(Random:I like how the map is broken up in very big cubes, that should make changing layouts and such quite easy, good mapping practice)
Overall, good first effort :) There might be more stuff, but my brain is empty for now.

I wish I could answer this question... oh, wait... it's happening right now! :D
Master was just merged into stable, so the update is already out, and the installer packages will probably be ready soon.

Just updated the map. It now has classic mode weapon spawns and bases for capture-the-flag and bomber-ball. There are also some other assorted changes.

Just quickly reviewed the aesthetic, still needs to be a bit brighter. Try working on your map with the temporary variable: /lightmapintensity 0.5
