Your BSP is corrupt or something. It doesn't show up as a BSP file when I look at it in Explorer, it won't show in my maps list, and I can't launch it manually. I downloaded it again just to make sure, but I think it's somehow screwed up... :

The bsp file didn't have the .BSP extension. I fixed it, so try it now.

Is that all? Haha...

Very very nice, but a bit cramped. It couldn't really be played with more than 4 people at once. It wasn't too different from your usual style, but that's alright with me. :)

The only thing I could think of that you could fix would be the ambient sounds. They're only coming from one point on the map, and it's horribly obvious with my 5.1 surround speakers.

I'm not going to bother pointing out what you did right here, since you did everything else as well as you normally do. I think my compliments would just seem redundant.

Nice map. But the Trees splits white blood.

Hey, they're not my models. They're from DoD. I dunno why they do that.
Commented 17 years ago2007-05-01 18:34:33 UTC Comment #14776
Think of that as a unique charm...o_o
Commented 17 years ago2007-05-01 22:31:41 UTC Comment #14778
It has to do with the entity you used to place the model, not the model itself. It's certainly fixable.

damn, i think that was said with poison garden. I made the same mistake this time again. :(

for a dm map there wasnt realy that much room to play. The map was definetly different and gave me a neat feeling thow this didnt realy take effect until i looked up. in my op def. not a 5 star but it was realy different. Kinda inspires me to make my lazy a self map some more...keep up w the hl1 maps bc thats all i gotz :) oh and the tree models showed red textured squares around the branches...4 somereason they werent masked...

I liked the building stretching into the sky the best but overall it was fantastic. The only bad thing was the wind sound, you made it too loud and gave me a headache after listening to it for several minutes. Nice dm level!

Somereason IS A WORD. As are bc, op, and w.

Another nice and clean map. Good use of sprites, beautiful colors, and brutally precise textures. The only thing, that was a bit weird for me, was the skybox with two suns. Or was it on purpose?

Anyway, good work. Five stars.
Commented 17 years ago2007-05-06 15:44:22 UTC Comment #14807
Yes, that's one of the default Xen skyboxes. I congratulate you for not making me add six more TGAs to my gfx/env folder. :D

Oh, sorry for the noobness. :P

It's just awesome :)
Commented 17 years ago2007-05-17 13:45:23 UTC Comment #14918
The word awesome is indeed an appropriate one to describe this map.

Veeery nice.

I saw somebody voted for this for map of the year, so I tried it.


It reminds me of the jedi temple outside portions from battlefront/battlefront II. Very sleek, pretty, and the layout is well thought out. You're impressed by all this, and then you look up and go "Whoa" seeing the backdrop, which was an excellent touch.

Map is excellent, but I'll try anyway to make possible suggestions for an Alpestrine 2:

1. I was listening to sigur ros on headphones, so I can't recall if there were sounds, but they couldn't have been too loud if they were. Maybe add more?

2.Add some nice statuary or fountains. I realize r_speeds are a concern.

3. Make it a tad bigger possibley.

4. Add more vertical gameplay possibly. You could make some of the up-high windows accessible, but would probably lead to nasty campers/snipers.

5. Perhaps add interior rooms>

Don't get me wrong now, even though I mentioned all that stuff, this map is still one of the best I've seen here. It's distinctly original, pretty, and well thought out, elegant.

5 stars, and I'm adding it to my vote for map of the year.
Great work! = )

Nice mapping, terrible gameplay...

I disagree that it's too small, I like fighting close. This map is a lot of fun
