The Beta version was posted quite a while ago, and I hope there's still some interest in a final version. I changed the graphics a bit (added a couple new rock sceneries to replace the overused support.bmp, smoothed some of the lower ledges, resized the hanging structures a little, etc.) and made a few other minor tweaks to the ctf map. The deathmatch map has been totally reworked by adding cliffside tunnels to either side. Note that the DM version is more of an extra and the effort was mainly put into the CTF map, though I am interested in any feedback regarding the DM version.

-Supports ctf only
-NOT waypointed

-Supports all modes except inf, htf, and ctf
-NOT waypointed

And again, thanks to SERIAL KILLeR for making the light scenery pack.

I saw the Beta earlier and I agree with the responses other people gave. It is a very fun map and I would love to see it more often on server. It looks better now. =D

You did well by replacing the support sceneries... these new pillars look way better!
The muddy and dark look of these maps is very pleasing. I still especially like the two hanging rocks in the ctf version.
The DM version is pretty good to play, but I'd say you can fully enjoy it with at least 4 other players.
Nice! :)

Awesome map! Very nice to look at, great shadows and contrast!
Does this map have any or little yet tho?
Do you die when you get down to the bottom?

some of your shading is kind of awkward where exactly the light source is coming from....notice in the ctf map ...the top part of the map. The triangle floating platforms...the one on the right is shaded very nicely but for some reason the one on the left has half of it being light...i think places like this would look best shaded just like the right one was.

Damn, this looks secksy, just a little odd shading in some places.

Thanks for the comments. As far as shading goes, I'm done with this map, but I've come a whole lot farther in shading since Lakeside. I've been developing modeling techniques that allow for really nice shading without pushing the polygon count TOO high. Lakeside was more of an experiment, and I think some of the odd shading comes from the fact that much of it wasn't planned in advance. I'm working on a multitextured map now that I'm pretty excited about, and I think the visuals will be a lot more... coherent than this one.
