It looks like an old deserted factory... except for the cool rings in the center. Will they do anything or are they just eye candy...

*thinks that reminds him of Star Wars Episode I when Darth Maul fights :D*

That came to mind a moment. Looks cool. What's the map going to be about?

The rings cycle to the top of the chamber - I haven't decided what they'll do yet ;)

The map will be an interior map, with lots of metal and such. The screenshot is the rough draft of only one of several chambers that will be interconnected with multiple hallways at different levels.

Right now, I am in the process of adding recessed & angled lights to the chamber with semi-transparent light 'beams' shining towards the floor.

As I said previously, this one will take me a while - I'm fairly busy with family/work and only have small packets of time to work on it.

Wow! :shock:
That reminds me of some other game, but I can't remember which.
Looks good!

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

Reminds me of StarTrek Elite Force...

And like in all your maps I'll just get 1-7 FPS again. :)

The light beams are made from a simple gradient texture (semitransparent white <-> total transparency), applied to a 4-sided trapezoidal mesh, extending from the white rectangular mesh to the horizontal floor mesh.

Well, it's a LouMan map.

We all know what will be said when LouMan makes a map.

No need to say it right now, then. :P

(No, I'm not saying that offensively. In fact, IO'm saying that positively! :D GREAT MAP!!!)

I posted a few updated screenshots in one of my previous posts. The 1st chamber is complete, only 3 more to go, and connecting hallways.

Yes, it is a bit absurd to have tanks battling on this kind of map, but what the heck :wink:
