This map earns the GMD Seal of Approval!

This level is a great peice of meat, its cool and original. Open it up in SP and wander around and you see what I mean (be sure to check out the Trippy Room(tm). But i really must say that the humans could easily rush the spiders, plus the spiders can't activate the booster system easily so its quite humie oriented. There are plenty on places to put spawns, all kinda hard to find (whichn is, or course, a plus) There are many sniper (also know as lame ass) spots to hunker down and shoot from, but they are easy to sneak up on so...hehe.

The texture allignment is good, I couldn't find any mis-alligned uses of textures or even *ugly* uses of textures so it's all good.

The lighting is good if not a little bright in most areas, but the level is big enough that spiders should have no problem sneaking around but the level is quite human orriented since most spiders can't activate the booster system easily.

The R_speeds stay very low and it runs quickly on my dinky little P-233 in SP and in MP it ran quite fast.

Comment: Quite well used and placed, all allinged very well as far as I could tell, and not monotonous at all. quite refreshing after many of the other levels I'm played.

Layout

Comment: Its not the best layout for a gloom level, but it is fun and works nicely. The layout is well thought out and each the different sectors of the map (ie the basement, the track, the spectators platform, etc.) are meshed together quite well and flow smoother than rapid parastalisis.
