          It looks amazeing it seems to have so much more depth and color looks so diffrent but it has all the charm of the origonal.

            I figured out that FPS drops to 20 in the middle areas. This is because the dynamic lighting I suppose. I get a constant 60 FPS at Idoma-FE for comparison and about the same FPS on most other maps as well. The textures are low-def and diffuse compared to the original.

              I use to play Idoma a lot in 2K4, I have sent Fartuess a private message with my feedback on the beta.

                    rescalling is one way... the second one is using wood ramps like near minigun area... we will see what we will decide

                      Map have a lot of cool looking features like::
                      • very detailed materials
                      • particle effects and lensflares
                      • reflections on stone walls
                      • used transmission chanel on leaves and some meshes which had to be enlightened
                      • dynamic sun lightning with shadows of moving clouds
                      • nice clear shadows on BSP and Static meshes
                      • nice fern shadows (also casted on itself)
                      • moving window cast dynamic shadows
                      • pots are physics actors casting dynamic shadows
                      • BSP shell was scaled and polished to create better gameplay
                      • Probably also something, but i don't remember more things

                          You are sure that you clicked download from newest version (because link on bottom of first post is to old beta).

                          But ok. I'll put it somewhere else.

                          Edit:

                          Ok. I've uploaded map also to filefront, so now you have it on speedyshare and filefront.

                            been waiting for this! thanks Fartuess!

                            EDIT: though fps is throwing 40-50 (sluggish), are the static meshes causing this?

                              Well... during the testing of the map we didnt notice any FPS drops... neither me or Fartuess... it was always nice and smooth... well... at least after removing problems from older version...
