A belated submission, but it's here!
This is my resort map in final. The wad file and rmf is included incase anyone wants to mess it up.

*shudders at the thought of how long it took to compile

youll be surprised how short you can make compiles by using excessive null textures

You can also make the whole thing a func_wall, just for the purpose of a quick compile. Because of the way my compo 13 submission worked, I had to make the enitre background a func_wall. It was fairly huge, and complex, but only took about 9 seconds to compile!

+VM and layout are boss
+Waterfalls look beautiful
-When you exit the waterfall area by the window-like 45? angles, there should be some clipping, unless there is a reason to be down there in no-mans land i'm not aware of.
-A little too dark IMO.
-There is no whiskey or wine anywhere at this resort.
-There are no front desk squires or resort toadies anywhere on this map who I can bitch to about the bad customer service...<sorry, my caffiene buzz is peaking>

Nice job overall!

Great, the final lighting and background look much better than the beta. Nice effects and ambience and very interesting architectural areas.
Some minor tweaks for future maps (I hope you wont give up mapping because of college): try to keep all textures with the same X and Y proportions at all times (building with the grid helps)
Dont use the same texture on the floor and a wall if they are together :'(
Great map(s) Rimrook

rowley, you should be hit. that just creates a huge leak so that vis and rad don't run. but ill save that for another time.

Great job Rimrook, it so sad to see you leaveing, came back and outdo the insignificants sometime in the future.

meh, nobody is perfect. thanks for the feedback.
I might not get around to updating this, that's why there's a wad and an rmf in the zip. So if something doesn't work right or could use some tweaking, go right ahead and do it :)

your going to college eh? you can still visit TWHL sometimes but?

M_gargantua: My method does not create a 'huge leak,' but this is not the place for this discussion. I will email the method.

GREAT!!! I fell off the map more than a couple of times though, so I got to see most the map several times.
