    Comments: 100% of the art assets are my own. All meshes and textures, materials and effects: everything you see was hand (mouse?) crafted by yours truly. A quick word to fellow modders: the Ambient Occlusion material IS included in the download, I will provide a tutorial at a later time detailing the specifics of how to use it.

        Looks very unique Kazeo, I'm surprosed less people took notice of it - especially due to the fact that its entirely custom.

        I'm a little scheptical about the colour and pp, but hey - since when did all maps have to be dark and lifeless? Downloading .

            Cool map. The music is great

            The lighting works really well. Good job.

                I am not fan of your lighting but this is a quite original map, the custom content is great. Just one thing: I am a bit surprised that your meshes are not lightmapped, why ?

                    Looks very different (in a good way ofc). Any chance of a ps3 cook?

                      I'll answer a couple questions, as I've gotten a few of them!

                      If anyone is willing to work with me to cook it and performance test it for PS3, I'm more than wiling to give it a go.

                      Honestly, the time and effort it takes into lightmapping custom Static Meshes is not worth the result. Yes, I admit some of the areas would look a tad bit prettier with some lightmapping, but 90% of the map uses meshes too small/complicated to worry about it. Not to take a stab at epic, but I really don't agree with the amount of work it takes to get a mesh lightmapped in UE3. Working with multiple UV sets in Maya is a nightmare (in my experience) and I try to avoid it unless 100% necessary. I would probably think otherwise if the "generate unique UVs" option worked (for me) in the static mesh editor, but it always seems incredibly versed in creating nothing.

                      I know this isn't a 'real' question, but I'd like to talk about it: One of the goals of this map was to re-create an environment in the style of the original Unreal (no subtitle) with the visual quality of UE3. It seems that Epic went colorblind with UT3 and Gears of War, which is odd because Unreal and Unreal Tournament have always been so colorful and stylish. Not to say that Epic's work is at all low-quality, quite the opposite: their work is beautiful. but I miss the old 'Unreal' styling.

                        I agree with you on that, and alhtough i certainly liked the colors used in this map, but it lacks contrast. There's one are that's really orange and then the next is really blue, it's probably because of the fog. Anyway it played fine, but there are a few issues, it's too hit scan dominant and the sudden gravity changes are annoying as hell.

                          Visual design and gravity play is astonishing but performance really hurts.
                          My rig isn't what i'd call "old" but i think i need a new PC to play this map... or lower graphics....

                          Naaaaaah new toys = fun !

                            just for indexing: what system are you running?

                              This is beautiful. If it plays well too, you've just set some kind of record IMO.

                              How the devil did you make the beautiful sky?
