[/release]

Features:
Flatgrass, full hammer grid of it.
Rails. Build trains!
Water for boats, but not really deep…
“Lagless rooms”. Perfect for building wire things in multiplayer.
Area for testing cars.
Big billboard with map name and author. And some smaller billboars, Lua coders can place some entities there, like advertisement.
3d skybox so it won’t feel empty.

Some screenshots:

Its rather blocky/repetitive, lighting underground sucks as theres light but no light models. Displacements are far to sharp and what is with the big cylinder in the middle with the big drop to another grass area?

700th post :mario:

For building trains you need a straight track. There is at the station, but it isn’t exactly a spot for construction.

This isn’t flat.

You need to work on the 3D skybox
Textures are very very repeditive.

Looks like a 30 minute map.

Another flatgrass map? How many hundreds do we have now?

More like 3 minute :v:

Its a build map what do you expect, non repeditive textures?

Yes

Try making something that hasn’t been made yet. The map it self isn’t that horrid but you should stop and think if anyone will use it before releasing.

Where have I seen this before? Oh yeah, everywhere

From the looks of your train track in the picture it looks retarded.

No offense, just something I wanted to point out.

Edit:

Holy fucking jesus titty whatever christ.
Your tracks are horribly done. The curve on the ramp’s are like, 3 brushes. Your curves in general and especially the lower-level ones are horrendous.

My god! Not even a single wheel can get around that.

But other than that it’s not a bad map.

What were you trying to do to the ground…?

Are there ai nodes?

My eyes are burning due to the sucky displacements…
