based on 'ascending and descending' by mc escher. if you go to a certain place in the sky you can see the illusion of the endless staircase.

not quite finished (waiting for HL2 to come out :D ), but very playable. podbot waypoints included.

if you like it and put it on a server, i'd really appreciate hearing about it.

DAMN! (downloads) Guess I'll have to try 'Relativity' instead :( - any way to have gravity pull people upwards in certain places?

If this map was incorparated into a halflife or even future HL2 single player mod, i believe would work well. The level design is very good. I like the models, the tree sprites need to be fixed up, they dont look too convincing with the way you have the sprites overlapping.

As a counter strike map, it doesnt fit the theme.

oh and i dont know why but i can see your AAATrigger brush on the piano, which activates the piano playing. Either you cant place entity's inside models or something weird is going on.

This seems like a well-crafted map in a lot of respects, but there's the odd flaw that makes me think twice about flaunting this map. Firstly and foremostly, that bird ambience, although nice that it is there, is bound to drive people up the wall after a short while. Secondly, some visible trigger textures and broken scripting (that rat) show the seams. Otherwise, it seems pretty well textured, lit and designed.
