Man oh man.Seriously, it's really hot.
I don't know if a screenshot could really do it justice, because it's really the overall effect that makes it work. I hadn't been much of a fan of the map in the past, mostly because I didn't think it was up to the visual quality of the rest of the maps in the game. My hat is off to KFDM, cause he certainly got that fixed right up. It really feels like an underwater facility now. I can't speak to how it plays, time will tell on that, but visually, the new version might as well be a new map. It's awesome.
Imagine Veil with dark walls and underwater. That's the best way I can think of to describe the feel of it.
