It reminds me of Tetris or Qbert from the screens. I'll test it.

Like always I was very keen to try your new map and once again I'm pleasantly surprised. I like its look, the challenges and there are enough checkpoints. You also made very clear where to go with arrows on the wall, BUT it's very annoying that you can't see clearly where the glass is. The first minute I was trying to jump through the blue parts because there is no shader / reflechtion / specscale on it. It's just a tad darker than other places and when you shoot at it you see bullet holes, but it should be way more obvious that it's glass just by looking at it. You're supposed to be able to run a fast lap on it, so hindrances should be clear.

Besides that, I absolutely love it.

At this moment i didn't find a good way to fix it. I tried perform operations with envmap and color of glass but this don't help.

Maybe just another alpha texture instead of glass material could fix it. Try one of the desat texture set and use a low value of specmap, I'm sure it could fix the problem.

Yes, but then there will be another problem. Through one alpha material another alpha material which is behind him will not be visible.

Hmm, I didn't know that this variable has 2 arguments.
This a helpful thing but it didn't work here

Ulukai, what about this changes ?

Great to see you back in action, TristamK!
This map here is a very nice concept, and I think you will create some great looking maps in the near future, using similar techniques as here, but with a smaller set of color tones. (Affluence is great example for a narrow color theme that builds up a dense and consistent environment.) Also, I do like the flow here, although visibility issues tend to break that, as discussed above. And once again quin provides invaluable help with just a short one liner ;)

I tried version 1.1 and while it's better I still think it could be improved because besides the arrows at the first 2 hindrances, nothing much seems to be changed. From reading bonifarz's reaction I think I'm not the only one wishing for better visibility ;)

Nice map, I put it to the tiralmaps of the Time Trial Server.

Can You change the facing of the spawnpoint (image 3)? It's quite annoying if spawnpoint isn't in the direction of the path. Also, this map is quite hard to navigate with low graphic settings, hard to see the holes with yellow border.

Update :
-Used second /valpha argument
-Start checkpoint fixed
-Some minor changes

gynter, thanks for time-trial server :D
Well, about low graphic settings. Yes, before posting something to forum i always test map with high and low settings but i never set settings so low o_0 . On this map i can just delete alpha material everywhere but it will be isn't good way.
