(it's not compiled with final parameters)

Our changelog counts 52 fixes. Going from minor (fixed sparklies) to major (trees, plants, sounds, a lot of details).
Dear judges, maybe you could rejudge our map, now? ;D

I've spend quite some time working on this map now and proudly present you an update full of improvements.

VISUALS

- new frame for the banner at the stairs near the YA
- redesigned jump pads (they emit streams of hot air now)
- new rooftiles texture
- area around the MH is destroyed (great crushed bricks by Bliccer)
- the mud at the YA now has grassy borders
- decals with the weapon's icon below weapons
- added trims to the sewer area to smooth the transition between the mayor textures
- the sewers are textures more consistently and have new sharper textures
- a part of the architecture's backside you could see from the map's middle floating above the citywalls is hidden by a new roof
- there's a tree at the YA growing out of a hole in the wall
- there's another tree at the RA
- new skybox and adjusted skybox light
- destroyed the floor near the RA
- more ferns
- mossy ground at the RA

GAMEPLAY

- improved clipping a lot
- increased the breadth of the walkway aside the lava pool
- entirely new item placement
- two new jump pad's at the map's center
- view distance through the portal increased from 256 to 400
- adjusted playerspawns
- MH can be collected by running up the pile of debris

TECHNICAL CHANGES

- sound effects
- different background music
- finally good hint placement and heavily optimized VIS
- the lava texture on top of the torches no longer uses deformVertexes
- map can be selected in the skirmish menu as a tourney map

Nice work, looks great :) I really like the jump pads and trees coming through the wall

Thanks a lot. When Bliccer asked me to "fix some smaller things" I never had thought I'd (have to ;) ) put this much effort into this map. The nice side effect: not only Roman Duel became a good map, I also begun working on a new map with a friend of mine. I didn't do any team mapping before, I guess I should have thought about it earlier.

Looks fantastic, did a great job here. I like the idea of the lava below the jump pads, and the steam effect that goes with it. It makes sense too - how else do the fans get powered? :P

Hey, thanks for the replies. Imo, too, he did a good job.
Great that you put so much effort into the map, DaEngineer.
Now I know what 45 degrees are ;D
I guess that's really the only map I'm kind of proud of (and then it's even a team project, a style I always prefered (see Joint Deviance). A win-win situation, then :D). After that comes the map of last competition.
So, have fun with playing our map.
