The author has done a great job remaking the exterior of the building. Scaled down or not the layout and structure of the outer walls and especially the roofing is phenomenal and very close to the original.2nd Place!
One of the better maps that was released for this contest where both gameplay and overall look play a huge role. The layout is quite nice compared to the actual landmark that his map was based upon but could use some adjustments as there is still a lot of room for improvements like more variation in texture use, better and more fine tuned light placement and of course the brushwork in general could've been worked out a bit better. All by all a quite lovely map to play in and to look at!3rd Place!
The landscape is ideal for this type of scenario and the atmosphere looks very nice. I love the trees and the small statues, but the sphinx in the middle doesn't really cut it even though it was a nice try. But I still appreciate it because it shows that the author put a lot of effort into this and not to just make one of the easiest structures on earth - a pyramid. Overall a nice-looking map.
