i think abyss area design is good, but there some "not have wall" place, that in my opinion need to be fix.
except that location from beginning have planed to be some "evading from opponent chase" then i cannot say anything about it.

This arena is amazing and looks so great :)

Some small and minor things that could be improved:
the puffy statue could maybe be a higher, so that he can be recognized.
Some tunnel entries from the upper ring are hard to spot maybe they could be a bit more obvious?

Otherwise I think it's perfect.

I can imagine this arena to be great for the new capture-the-flag mode too, with small modification.
For that the map should be symmetrical. Maybe the ramp to the higher part that starts in the inner of one circle could be disabled for this mode.
Don't know if it is yet possible to make things visible depending on capture the flag mode. (Benau?)
But that could also be done after the arena release.

I worked on the arena again, a new version to download comes soon.

I added some lights

With these lights you can see better where the tunnel to the inner part is.

Hi, I just finished to test your map and, yeah it looks impressive. After Area 42 you just did this amazing :)

1: The concept and overall look
Again like area 42 you took existing stuff to remix and to something really interesting. I enjoy the over theme, the roman statues (Poseidon/mermaids and puffy) are fun touch.
The natural cavern is a nice addition and IMHO looks better than my own in my abyss version.

2: Gameplay and drivelines
Each rooms are interesting to discover. Maybe you could add some lights to create different effects. I didn't really tried a battle yet.

3: Atmosphere and general look
There seems to have a few bugs there and there regarding the water distortion through the glass but nothing too critical. I love the organic and art deco look of the map. It reminds me of Bioshock.

4: Details to make it perfect
a) The small submarine in the tube isn't moving. In the original map it was going through the tube. Would be nice to put the animation back
b) The puffy statue is dark. Put some light in there so we can see it in all it's glory. I would like to include this model in the current abyss since it's dedicated to puffy.
c) The grid looks giant and it looks like the kart could fall inside. I know I made the same mistake, but you are welcome to do better than me.

Conclusions:
Very cool arena. Maybe you could have tried to make it during the day so we don't have too much dark maps. It would also be an interesting challenge to make during the day or maybe with a part partially above water.

I experimented with lighting the puffy statue. I added a light cone (like in the lighthouse track), but the mesh gets displaced by the water shader behind that.

the small submarine is not animated, (it actually was animated, keyframed to the original position, I removed the animation now but will be re-added again). Also the grid will be fixed.
Currently I work on the cave, maybe a few crystals emitting light and some rocks too.

some sort of gate with sea shells where blue flames are coming out

The arena is almost ready - here is a new version: https://platen-software.de/sebastian/ar ... _01_13.zip

I did a lot of "bug-fixing", animated the small submarine in the tube and added some other stuff.

Before I release the final version I want to rework the crystals, improve the navmesh and add more decoration outside too.
