While I know it's your first map, and though it is still in progress, I thought I'd point out a couple of things.

First, not sure why you have negative sized objects, but it's probably a good idea to refrain from making those.

Secondly, very large, stretched objects fill up the map, but they offer very little playing tactics or looks to your map. Try making smaller pyramids or blocks to jump on, hide behind, bounce shots off of, etc.

And do not take this as a "YOU ARE TERRIBLE" post, because that is not what it is intended to do at all.

Here's a (bad) screenshot for all of you who can't host a server or use BZEdit.

To take screenshots, press prt scr on your keyboard, then open paint and paste it in. If you can host it locally, simply press F5 to take one. If that doesn't work, I dunno what to do.

Anyways, it looks like you could use some more objects, but make them small.

Okay, you get a Bic, the orc gets a long sword.

He cuts the Bic in half.

Then he cuts you in half.

Oops, I meant quarters.

Save the screenshots in JPEG format so they will be small enough to attach here.

still looks a little empty, maybe try adding (like DW said) a few littler pyramids on the ground and maybe a few smaller walls (if using rico) to provide rico opportunities, cuz pyramids dont offer rico. other than that you're onto something :D

by that i meant that you cant shoot the person behind you off a pyramid, you will need a wall, or a flat surface. Pyramids offer good rico if you are shooting a person above you such as wings and stuff... unless you add an upside down pyramid above that, then the bullet would come back down and offer a little more rico :wink:

Looks like it's developing nicely. You're doing much better on object placement. It's starting to look a lot more playable.

Can't wait to see final map in Map Releases! Don't have time to test the current .bzw on my server, though.

Until we meet again!

If it's the final one, then shouldn't you have made that post under the Map Releases forum? Also make sure to pick a license for your map file so that other know how we can use it. The post at the top of the Map Releases forum should give you some info about licenses.

I know i'm not Blast, but No you dont. You dont even need one to post a map. You get a license if you want no one to Take it and say its theres its like a Copy right. Here is a site i use for Map licenses. http://creativecommons.org/

Hope that helps.

Um, wrong. Licensing "comprises the permissions, rights and restrictions imposed on software" that people have (source - yes, I know using Wikipedia as a source is evil, but this is the most convenient source for you to understand. Ask any IP lawyer and they will tell you the same thing.). With no license, it is only right to automatically assume the person owns full copyright and you have absolutely no rights at all, except where copyright law permits (such as fair use). An OSI-approved or Creative Commons license is a must if you post the actual map source on the BZBB. This license can not allow the creator of the work to require "if you host this, you must do this..." or require notification of any kind.

Also, what happened to your complete lack of grammar? Capitalizing non-proper nouns and forgetting your apostrophes. Tisk tisk.
