RUN BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

Hey everyone, this is my L4D map that has been in the works for a while.

I had an idea about defending apartments and being able to choose where to reside. This was the result.
Anyway, let’s get to the point, shall we?

I want you to to tell me anything that you think is weird or wrong in these pictures (or just ugly) but don’t hate if this sucks, please…

Cool.

The insides are of valve standards. The outside is a bit bland.

Thank you VERY much! Any advice?

It’s still too blocky inside to be valve “standard”.

Don’t place light ents so close to the ceiling. Normal lights doesn’t emit light to the ceiling, use lightspots instead with some sprites.

I use light_spots with sprites and lights, but ok, I will move the normal lights down.

On picture 8 and 9 from the top. I think the light ent’s are too close to the wall and ceiling there, if you can see what i mean.

The exterior looks a tad blocky the rest is all fine.

OH, you meant them!
Sorry, I will fix that right away.

The exterior of the building is blocky as others said, and I find myself wanting more details outside the fence (picture 3). I like the layout of the map though, looks interesting with many choices.

Yes I would like to add more detail, but I have no ideas right now… maybe you have some?

A respectable effort, however it’s completely out of scale

Can you specify what? Or is it just in general?

The exterior walls are terrible. you feel like you’re in a box. The displacements abruptly end and are very jagged.
