    First of all, I'd like to thank you for cooking on the PS3. The look of the map looks very professional, however, I'm disappointed about the scarcity of weapons and somewhat random and overuse of the health vials in the map.

    To everyone with words of encouragement, thank you. I was kind of getting tired of working on it. I was gonna try to hurry up and wrap it up so I could move onto my 2nd map (yes this is my first map in UT3, actually my first map since the original Quake) But now I feel recharged to push this map even further.

    Some of the things you brought up Khandor were actually on my list of things to do. Im gonna add some electricty running over the cables on the lower level so you know you will die if you touch them. And of course Im gonna add sound in there and some spark particles as well. This one is gonna keep moving forward till I think it cant get much better

    ohh yeah Im glad ya managed to find the rocket launcher, its not really hidden but there is a chance you'll run right by it your first time through

    peace out

    Okay tried out your map, 5 bots, 20 minute time limit *though I played for maybe 5 minutes* and bots on average and I love it. It's VERY closed in and tight quarters which made for some interesting gunplay.

    I noticed there wasn't a rocket launcher or flak cannon anywhere? Which I think is a good thing, because you won't be shooting yourself in the foot. Bio Rifle is also an option because it's a rarely used weapon in most cases, and in a place like this, it'd be great to have it and be able to place a glob around a corner or something to set up a trap.

    One thing I would suggest is *if it's possible* place an enforcer in the weapons locker, or in fact what you should do is spread out the weapons a bit more because that locker was the only real hotspot in the whole map, and while I was exploring all the little areas, most of the time the bots just congregated right there around the weapons locker and near the siege reactor itself and were never seen in the lower areas or the corridors. Also with this too you don't see many weapon lockers in dm maps, especially small ones, because it means people can usually just restock at em when they run low on ammo. With weapons spread out it forces players to actively search for a weapon and then they experience more of the map instead of just camping a spot.

    Also if you do spread em out more, since the stinger minigun is gonna be the strongest weapon in the map, it'd be good to place it in a more hard to access area, perhaps down in the lower areas of the map.

    I like the steel mesh catwalk, it'd be neat if you could shoot through it though with the bullet weapons.

    Down in the lower area, there's a jump pad that flings you across a series of pipes, and then up a metal grating and then up to a ledge, and when I first saw that area I just jumped on the pipes thinking I'd be fine, but instead I died, so maybe a way to let people know that that particular area is a killzone would be nice. Maybe make the area glow red or something to show it's extremly hot or something I dunno.

    Also the metal grating afterwards where you have to use the jump pad is a bit odd, because at first glance it really looks like you can run up it when in fact you can't. So I dunno if something could be done there or not.

    Finally, only other thing, is that this needs ambiance and music. You got that reactor goin off and it's totally quiet, no humming sounds or nothing. You have a lot of pipework and machinery, it'd be nice to have some sounds with it.

    Overall I really really like this map, don't see many close quarters combat maps around that are this tight.

    **EDIT** I found the rocket launcher. :b I didn't expect it up there at all. ;b

    This map is truly amazing. Everybody must be speechless. It works awesome on the PS3. And only beta3.

    Thank you for cooking this.

    whoohoo it works. I guess my problem was I was typing in the entire directory to the map file when cooking it. All you have to do is type the map name only in the map text field. Also the map name was one character too long it was 31 characters, the max you can have is 30 so I had to shorten it. Im glad the initial impression is a good one

    Also to Italian could I get a link to that youtube video when you get it posted?

    And from all who have gave it a run through, anything i can do to improve it? I guess some more detailing and some gameplay tweeks (if needed) and i can send it on to final. Its about time to, i think Ive logged a month on making the **** thing, hehehehehe

    I am guessing more for you. Even though I want to play this amazing looking map, as an IT guy there is nothing like problems to make you FREAKIN' nuts.

    I go home and just stew on work stuff....thinking about what I could do to make something work. Ofcourse I am a **** nut too.

    Ok Sol it is not working. The only file the PS3 users need is the USERDATA file inside all the folders of course but only the USERDATA file in the BLUS folder. I think it didn't cook correctly because the USERDATA file is only 33kb.
