    So we play tested this wonderful map for an Hour and 30 minutes on ZM1. Ray and Secondary both made an appearance on top of Peter, Momo, Brian, Haplo, Seks, Dillinger, Taters, and a ton of other admins and players.

    Memorable playtime quotes.
    Server Population: Kill Yourself - As decided by a vote on whether they liked the map or not.
    Server Population: WHY CAN'T I BUY ANY GUNS?!
    Gigabite: I'd rather play Twinsteel then this.
    Harvey: This is too stupid, I'm leaving.

    This beautiful map features four spots spread out over two rooms. No Buy Zone, and one illegal spot (The Plague Fest Way).

    Here are some screenshots, I also have a demo of the Single Win that was accomplished on this map.

    Why would you do this?
    I've given mappers a lot of shit over the years for churning out crap ontop of crap and continuing to do so. So my goal of this is to see if I can stand by my words and create a better map. This is my first from scratch map. No Holes or Leaks. Lighting that works, and fits the theme of the map. Optimized as I made the map, not after. The map was created in 7 hours, including a game of Dota (6h?).

    Why did you make this thread?
    Good question! I'm looking for feedback. I wasn't going to create a ton of rooms with a bunch of different spots if people hate the style. However, players do seem to enjoy it. Just it's wicked small, and I need a buy zone.

                    Is there any way you can link ur link to ur map?
                    I'd like to make fun of... Er... See ur map.

                    (So dawg, I heard you like ur. So I put some ur, in your ur, for your ur!)



                    Edit:
                    Seen it. Walked around the ENTIRE map.....
                    I don't know how you all managed an hour and a half of that.
                    Good start though.

                      I have uploaded the map in the OP. Keep in mind it's Alpha 1, and is pretty lame if you don't have Zombies, or the Background music going.

                      Awesome.
                      I will check it out.
                      And in all honesty, I've not made a map... So I doubt I could do much better.
                      Just giving you crap.

                          I could help you put some beavers in the map if you'd like to, knock me up on mumble/steam if you're interested.
                          I can view one picture only so it's somewhat difficult to judge, although i'd say it's alot better than other peoples first maps, made in a few hours at that.
                          Good job!

                            For a first map it's fairly well done. Most people don't add lighting and make a box instead of actually making rooms. Forgetting a buyzone isn't abnormal though. Something is always forgotten. Could be a Buyzone, a Cubemap or a light_environment. No leaks is pretty neat though, it's nice to know you use the grid and don't just whip your wand around. Love the spawn. Nothing says fuck yea like a big empty room.

                            I uh, tried testing your map but in the download, only a .bsp.bz2 is included, and not the actual .bsp file. Or am I missing something and the .bsp.bz2 can run the map? Cause it's not working for some reason.

                              Extract that bz2 file with winrar, 7zip, or winzip maybe?
                              I used 7zip. In there is the BSP you request.

                                Type Net_graph 1 in console.

                                    Not bad for first map seen worse :grin:
                                    for next version make another spawn and more advanced lightning maybe?

                                    nice map, could be improved but nice. Seems a bit gloomy, maybe add some extra lights? also you should try to add custom textures. Either look around gamebanana or ask if another mapper can let you use theirs. I could make you some if you have special requests. Just pm me. dunno what else to say as i don't play much zm.
