This is a repost of the sequel to my not-so-smash-hit map ka_the_towers. I can't remember why I deleted it the first time I submitted it but here it is... again. There is absolutly no way to get guns in this map, sorry to those who like to ruin the game with guns in knife arenas.
Anyway have fun, this map is a hit on my server.

Not bad. My review:
************************
+ Gameplay. It's interesting, those towers and moving plats make it good.
+ Layout. It's almost great for a ka map. Open areas, lots of things to jump on.
+ Idea. I like it. It's all mystical and stuff. Gw.
+ Ambient sounds. Just one, but it doesn't need any more, imo..
****************************
+/- Architecture. A tad boring, if you ask me. Although it fits the theme.
+/- Texturing. Same thing. It's boring. Try scaling that crete wall texture to ~3.0 or at least 2.0, coz now it looks a lil non-tiled.
+/- Lighting. Boooooooooring, but it still fits the theme.
***********************************
Well overall - good work! It's a nice and original map. You could remove the rain, tho. Looks kinda weird, imo. The map lacks better architecture, but since your theme is mystical, it's not the main requirement.

Not exactly an update. The original ka_the_towers is still in use.
Don't let the screenshot fool you! It really is blocky!
Anyway I'm thinking about finishing off The Towers series with a ka_the_towers3, mind you it would cap all over the prvious ones with my architextural skill now. Just have to finish cs_haunted2 first...

Beautifully constructed map! Reminded me of Battlefront maps a bit! :)

+Lifts!
+Great ambient sounds
+Death scream pwns!
-Maybe a little more to it, or make each leg of the wheel more different
-texturing a bit bland
-architecture lacking in places--I did love the central spire though!

Nice job!
