I can't think of what to write here!
So, I've gone back to co_halo and totally overhauled it. In fact, the only thing that remains is the name. I'm much happier with this, now, both in terms of visuals and layout. Here's the screens:

Ready Room.

Just outside Marine Start

"The Hub". I could use a bit of feedback on this one. It's missing something special and I can't identify what that is.

Just outside Hive. That's a weldable there which opens the door to reveal an armoury.

The Hive. The raindrop sprites are the right way round this time, Bob!

So, there you go. Crits and comments will be most welcome. smile-fix.gif

    Try spicing up the ceiling here a bit, it just looks boring. Maybe add some grating or perhaps some elevation change, or maybe just another texture or something. It's missing something, as you said, though.

    And might I say... OMG. The map is incredibly nice, it doesn't feel like co_core anymore, and the style is definately nice looking. Good job Saney, now make this an ns_ map biggrin-fix.gif

    edit: I am an idiot.

    TheHub: needs some 3D-effect brushwork to make the ceiling (in particular) and the walls more appealing.

    Neat style. I look forward to seeing this progress. I think all my C&C has been covered.

    Looks good, but I question the wisdom of the name . . .

    It looks good enough to probably be official if it plays well, but the name has become synonymous with another game, which makes things a little awkward.

    Heh, thanks for the compliment. I've grown rather attatched to the name, so it'll probably stay that way for now. I'll just wait and see whether I get to that point and if it's an issue.

    First shot is very tasty, but a bit too much like Agora. The rest are nice too, not much to critique really. Keep it up! smile-fix.gif

    I know how to fix your name. Simply swap the vowels around, giving us co_hola. It's unique, and spanish speakers will enjoy the map's welcoming attitude. biggrin-fix.gif (And thanks for getting the drips the right way round!)

    textures look over-scaled to me. nice architecture so far.

    The map looks fairly nice..

    When I looked at the topic - co_halo - I thought - "FFS! not another stupid halo clone. Are we that lame that we need to copy the design of another game? Why not have co_avp2 and co_doom3 as well?" - But to my surprise it is very original. Nice. It has a real gritty feel, which appeals to my need to run around dirty hallways in the dark..

    Seriously - change the name from halo. Even if you are attached to it - the community will never take your map up.. Listen to the suggestion to change it co_hola (for the spanish crowd) or co_aloh! (for the british crowd)...

    i do also think you should change the ceiling in you hub room, that tile-like texture you have there doesnt fit with the circle you have in the middle and the diagonal walls.
    what do you think about co_cacola? smile-fix.gif
    "bERt" is a weapon of mass destruction

    ns_halo could be changed to:

    ns_crown
    ns_col (crown of light)
    ns_coronet
    ns_angel
    ns_angelus
    ns_divine
    ns_ambrosia
    ns_diupater (the words that got amalgamated into Jupiter, meaning God·Father)
    ns_olympia
    ns_wreath
    ns_tiara (lolz)
    ns_essence (as in ns·sn's)

    OK now I'm getting silly, and they're probably not to your taste anyway, but I am seriously bored right now...

    I'll look into changing the name. I've had it for a long time and this is the first time anyone's said anything about it, though.

    Lt.Gravity: r_speeds are 400 max, mostly under.
  • MalevolentMalevolent Join Date: 2003-08-03 Member: 18842Members Posts: 411
    I think the name is fine, though. Who cares if there's this one game that no one knows about that has it for a title? tounge.gif

    Hmm... i just realised you have an area called The Hub, just like eon tounge.gif although your use of the name looks more appropriate.
