You could've waited until you had a screen to put the map in the vault... Without a screenshot, people might not want to download the map at all! (The fact that it's an aim map doesn't help either).
The way you treat your Map Vault entry (screenshot/s, map description) usually gives people an idea of how much you really care about the map.
And honestly, in this case it doesn't look like much... :(
Think about it.

Hmmm. Not bad!

Lighting needs work. It's not fullbright, but it *almost* looks like it is. You said the screenshot doesn't reflect the lighting in the map, but does.

The occasional bit made me cringe but generally the brushwork is ok.

The complex jagged hole thing in the floor, ewww, at least make it shallower so it seems a bit more realistic - what causes that kind of damage anyway? Look at the damage as it is now and try and imagine what caused it. I think, in it's current form, you would need a pnuematic drill (or similar) lying around nearby, to suggest that someone had been having fun with it on the floor. I think it's a good idea to try and explain why things are the way they are in your maps. It would be easier to explain the damage if you made the whole thing shallower though.

Other bits of your damaged walls and stuff look okay. Just that one in the floor made me go Ewww

The texturing is good, apart from a few little errors (like the overlapping water texture which flickers like crazy).

I like the rain effect, it's nice. You've also made the walls look a lot less boring by adding variety to them. Good job.

The layout- I actually think it's pretty good for an aim map setup. There's cover which looks like it'd be fun to use. I like the way the players can effecively fight both ways across the map if they wish.

If you made the lighting look pretty, and fixed the other few problems, then it'd be worth 4 stars.

As it is now, it only gets 3.

Yeah the hole in the ground is cinda wierd... if i think, i ddotn eaven know why its there! it could be bombed right? but... i duno.

and i could have added some sounds too tho...

oh and about the lightening. you see, my problem is that ' i am very crap at the lighting my maps' i duno witch angles to put on the light env to make the shades of wat so ever. i realy need help with tthat.

DON'T RATE YOUR OWN MAP, Ghetto/Skals! Thats the worst thing to do on TWHL, because everyone will turn against you, if they haven't allready.

Removed your (Skals) comment.
Don't do it again!
