What you have:
1. Box map with extruded cliffs.
2. Boxed out building.
3. Default tiling textures.

Why is all of this bad? Cliffs need to look decent and realistic extruded faces with tiling texture applied. Look at pictures of cliffs, and copy them.

Grass is flat, and this looks like a natural location so it would not be flat, needs bumps and various other details in the ground.

the building is made out of blocks, NO BUILDING EVER looks like that. Need details, e.g. air circulation systems like most buildings have. Not what you may want in the building but it's an example.

There is NO gameplay aspect of the map at all. The textures are just tiling textures. Everyone seems to enjoy doing this... but ONE tiling texture all over an object looks bad.

The ladder allows you to look through the wall where you can see that the METAL wall has no thickness to it and makes it look bad.

Sorry to be harsh but you have got to be told. I'm giving you honest crit here, learn from it.

@ Juilian: i don't know why the cliff textures did that :\. but by "add variety and detail", do you mean fix the cliffs & hills? coz i did the best i could on them.

I think fun & gameplay is more important than how it looks though :)

@Dratt: ?

@anonymous: have you got a non-insulting reason why?

I do not insult when I give crit, people start crying and getting butt-hurt, then I insult ;)
I give honest crit, if you take it as an insult instead of criticism then go ahead and I just won't help you improve.

This is good for practice, but I STRONGLY recommend that you should redo the maps. Try to remember what I told you on xfire, if you need help, talk to me again.

I did not watch it all, so I do not know about a scarab. No offence but it looks like a 5 minute map.

You don't know how to improve the cliffs? Well, you seen them kinda cliffs in real life?No, well then you know how to improve them. They do not have to be perfect but actually resemble cliffs.

Don't need to play something to see if it has gameplay, and your map has no gameplay i'm afraid.

It's your second map? here is my second map. I never released it and didn't show much of it so I doubt anyone here has seen it.





Yeah at first I had metal walls as well, but that looks crap so chose rock. YOu should texture you walls better than one basic texture.



No intention of sounding like an ass but imo my second map has more game play than yours and looks better tbqh. And I say that from a critical point of view not just because it's mine.

Ok, ok, harsh but true crit, etc we. What did we learn from the last topic about this?
"If you don't like the map then don't play it".
On the other hand, why make a topic asking for peers to decide? Just like the last topic, this is your decision. If you want suggestions, then ask for them... if you give others the decision of releasing your map, you know... stuff goes down.

You release maps for the public and community to enjoy playing. If you create maps and use the good old excuse of "Well I made it because I enjoy making maps!11!!" then don't show it.

At the end of the day you are ALL playing the part of a level designer so people WILL give crit on it. If you don't like the truth then you should just leave, or man up, take the crit and improve and everyone will love you :)
