Hey all - this is my first real attempt at mapping, and i'm making this stage for my clan, JEDI. It's almost done, so i'm just looking for constructive criticism and your opinions on ways you think I might be able to improve the stage. I've put up some screenshots here:

Let me know what you think.

Most impressive. I enjoyed your contrasting color selection. Gives a nice flavor to the map. I'm going to try to get back into mapping myself, and finally finish the map I started earlier in the year.

Heh heh... gotta venture out of the swamp at some point, eh Wes?

And thanks for your comments rolsen. I added a couple more lights to the map, but unless someone can think of something drastic I should do, i'm not gonna have anymore WIP shots - I'll just release it.

i wholeheartedly agree. along with the contrasting colors, i was really impressed with the contrasting textures/materials you've used. the stone-like finish against the more sleek/modern staircases and lighting and floor finishes gives this map a wonderful variety ... LOTS OF EYE CANDY!

keep up the great work!

I like it. :)

Maybe some light source would be good. I mean the lights are mostly just there without a source (and a few red light with white lamp). It's not a problem though. :)

That's already been taken care of - the shots are from the last compile, not the most recent. The lights in that compile (in some places) were scattered haphazardly, left over from earlier work where I just needed to see stuff. Now that it's almost done, it's been cleaned up and light sources have been added.

On a side note, i'm wondering what my next project should be... any ideas are welcome.

Thanks WhiteShdw... love what you're doing with Shadriss on the DoTF map, by the way.

I got a question for you, though. I'm considering starting a new project - Hogwarts from Harry Potter (as seen in the movie(s)). I think the place is really interesting, but i'm gonna need help on the textures... i'm probably going to need a lot, and I don't know how to create them - so if it isn't too much trouble, could you point me to some tutorials (or even better, offer your help in the creation)? :D

Thanks again.

Actually, Anakin, I started here, then went to the swamp :P

Really? My first ever post was in the swamp, so I started there, but I didn't stay long. I wandered around the rest of the forums, then eventually came back to the swamp, as everyone must do. ;)

Wow, those screens look real good. Love all the little details :)

I'll have some more screens up tomorrow... I've made a couple of changes, and improved the lighting, as well as adding the necessary weapons and health, armor, etc.

What I would like now though is a beta tester or two...

Sure, i'll help you out if you want, but i'm not really a texture artist. What i did with LDJ's map was look at his textures and make improved versions of them. I hardly created anything completely new. But I like your idea, so i'll be happy to help out.

Thanks a bunch WhiteShdw I really appreciate it. Looking at some reference pics... it's gonna be huge, so i'm gonna need all the help I can get!

And Buckman, I don't have a place to host the file, so how big is your email inbox?
