Since there are many other Compo 20 entries in the vault, I figured why not... I included the rmf too, for anyone who's interested.

Cool, I really liked the part when it got into the vent.

oh btw: Awsome entity work, there were things in this map.Making me thinking if this was possible at all.A five for creativity, a five for destrufication, a five for the entity work. Good Job!

That's the most insane thing i've ever seen from the Half-Life engine. Very nice work!

I just played it again, and was awestruck at the detail/subtleties of the orb's movement, as well the same with the destruction in it's totality.

I found walking around and watchiang at different angles was also nice, to catch things you didnt see a previous time/direction.

Subtle/masterful use of textures/brushwork made for beautifully crafted destructification in many places: the truck causing the lift to teeder, the crused staicrase, pillar, walls... all pulling off the effect perfectly without being to gaudy.

No errors or distractions come to mind, except some noticable "rampant" clipping in places, but what the heck...this map is at a level where I'd have to study the entity work for a month to truly understand it, so I'll just shut up now ^_^!

I don't normally rate anymore, but this qualifys as an exception

Superb work!

I'm.. speachless..

This is more than amazing and original.. :o

The whole detail, realism and precision of the destruction truly amazed me. The ambience, the beam effects, the decals.. This <i>had</i> to get 1st place. ^^

Wow, I've gotta check out how its set up. Really neat little thing you made there. The camera work is a little shotty but eh, halflife isn't exactly known for cameras.

Thats probably the most insane thing i've ever seen. GREAT work no wonder why you won.

Amazing - looks like it belongs from HL2, with the illusion of AI. (I thought it did, cause it seemed to chase after me!) 5 stars!

This is awesome.....
You could build a whole SP mod around this 'orb'.
Great work!

Awesome, fun to watch the orb bounce round and destroy everything. Nice job just putting it in the map, G-Man :) At first I thought it was trying to attack me. 0.0 Anyways good job with this.

I think you have proven that anything is possible SlayerA

I think its superb how the orb interacts with the level itself, such as going into the vents

Ive also looked at the .rmf and Woah ! that entity work is very complex

Superb Orb SlayerA

Very interesting map, small, but who cares, everything about this map made it Great, mostly the Orb and the way everything reacted the way they should when they are destroyed. This map was Great.

Nice job with the orb! I assume it is a func_train but it is just brilliant work. Trains can be darn awkward to work with but this was flawless!

Its all been said, freaking awsome

I recommend listening to this while playing this level. It fits perfectly!

Loved it. Just... Perfect timing on everything, great destruction... Everything in this map is awsome.
