It reminds me of all of your maps, for some reason they all look the same. (Endor)

Looks a bit basic as of yet, might want to do something to spice it up. Maybe improve the ligthing?

I'd strongly suggest not to use craptity suns if you're aiming to make a serious map.

No, in fact, it's better to use Q3map_sunExt in a custom sky shader. This creates extremely realistic lighting, and is one of the amazing options Q3map2 has to offer.

The trees are not tropical, they are like a jungle kind of tree

so, just put Q3map_sunExt 1 in the worldspawn options?

Im still kinda new to the sun lighting

Eh, no. Check out the shader manual for more info on shaders and shader entries.

you're right, i could do trees but it would be a bit stupid having those already done, they are just trees, a cylinder and planes but well if this would be considered like steal then i dont mind, dont get it better
