              Yep, downloaded it just this morning. Playing it now to see whether or not we see any difference from the Beta release that I downloaded some time ago.

                    After playing / test many versions since a long long time, ****, the final is truly a unique piece of work

                    I remember the first versions (which was nice even at there early stage) & was wondering how it will turn on in the end.

                    There are many aspects that is truly different from the rest. I didn't check the map in the editor so since there is many ways of doing things, I just want to comment on few things.

                    For example, the lava heat effect is very convincing. Dunno how you've done it but it's by far the best heat effect I've saw in years.

                    Same thing for the snow effect, very nice & convincing, never saw that kind of movement since we usually see snow falling straight vertically instead horizontally with a sort of wind effect that make the snow spinning with a nice variation in movement.

                    The custom jumpad is looking awesome & fit's with the level (glowing is a nice effect btw).

                    The teleporter is also very well done. All custom stuff are jaw dropping & none the less.

                    As mentioned before, I love the layout & the enhance lighting make the level look way better. Now, the lighting is awesome & less uniform which provide better shadows across the map.

                    Only point about lighting (& it's not a complaint, only something I notice ) is the light source radius is way to much. In various spots, a simple flame or 2 can't light a huge room like it's the case. But anyway, it look good anyway.

                    The contrast between the blue / red is really amazing. Love the transition between inside / outside the map (lighting / materials / map construction, etc).

                    Another first is that your preview screen are videos. I've saw pics changing in various maps but it's the first time I see vids for the preview screen. Again, very well done & even more surprising is that the map file size isn't bigger than the average.

                    In all, this is a masterpiece. Unique look, unique features, awesome atmosphere, awesome lighting, killer layout, it flow well & gameplay is very fun, what can I say more ?

                    I was please to add it to my top picks yesterday !

                    Many THX for this unique work of art & mapping lesson

                        While the map is simple at first glance, the more you look at it, the more details you see. The biggest question about this map is, what's not to like?

                        I especially like the teleporter, the contrast between the ice/lave, and the clean look of the map.

                        The only possible critiques I can say is that there are some "quiet" apreas (no ambient noise) and that there seems to be a lot of light for the few light sources (though the lighting looks great).

                        That being said, great work as usual from you!

                          Visually this is almost the same as RC1, so it's hard to "see" the differences

                          It's a nice track from painkiller but not that fit for the vid

                          The first versions you saw, were not the real first versions I gonna post some screenshots here.

                          Yeah the lightsources look not big enough for the light they emitt, I knew that, but I was just kinda lazy to change it

                          Thx for your comments, as always!

                          I want the areas to be "quiet",the reason is very simple, so that you can hear the sounds of your enemies. IMO this is more important than the atmosphere brought by more ambient sounds.
                          Thx!

                              This map really is a staggering achievement with all of the amazing design and attention to detail. In my imaginary release version of UT3 that would be filled with clean, uncluttered yet visually interesting maps, this would have been one of the retail release maps. Thanks so much for all of your hard work on this incredible work of art. I'm going to be enjoying this one for a long time.
