I won't be renaming the map. There was a bhop_lego around 2 years ago which was a map with 5 bhop blocks in it. I haven't found a single person, server or trace of it anywhere other than the trashed version here on gamebanana.
To server owners - you can with confidence upload this version of bhop_lego. I'd appreciate if you didn't rename it.
I really liked this map. It was simple but really fun to play through and I think you made the perfect choice making it single hop only.
The music was good, the gameplay was really fun and I think it'll be a good addition to any bhop server. :]

Why was the old one trashed? I looked through some servers and haven't found a single one with it. I know it's an original name which is why I looked and asked around beforehand, noone had heard of it for CS:S, only 1.6. If this turns out to be a huge problem, I'll rename it.
Ok. Where to start with this...
- Very creative design, very accurate for a lego atmosphere.
- Moderated difficulty.
- 3D skybox.
- The additions seem original.
- Variated colors on the lego textures and enough detail. Yet you should try to avoid using that gray on the majority of the map.
- Well-placed lightning with not weak shadows.
- Innovative bonuses.
- Different outdoor and indoor levels with variated ambience.
- Decent sized.
- Another good fact to see that you can't lose health.
- And to top off, the skybox looks astonishing...
- Little lag at the buyzones, when you receive the P90 and Glock.
- Hands would be covered by a purple layer at some points, which means missing light. Still a irrelevant issue since I found this only in two points:
Well, improvements over this one could hardly be one since this is nearly perfect. I like how you used the lego textures, the variation you did is exceptional: orange combined with gray, purple with red, and also you gave them an actual function (e.g shoot the green shape to boost you on the air) which I honestly didn't see at anytime.
The map is long and I like it, you've done a good work with the design in order to make it more durable, hence the path you must do at the start, and the lots of levels with the pretty complex layout.
The environments you included must be recognized too; both 2D and 3D skybox are really fitting and form an pretty enjoyable outside, no improvements over design, after the small inconvenience with the lighting (already left two screenshots below) that isn't a big matter though.
On the lighting itself, it looks well placed and makes the lego textures look a bit better, shadows are strong and the overall look is acceptable, a improvement to it's look should be adding sunlight, I hope you consider this!
As rating, I will give this a honest 9, it looks really beautiful in my opinion, yet with a bit of improvements. I recommend refraining from placing music into your maps, although these ones aren't actually bad, they fit a bit, but this could be an advice for future maps, also, check the lag, just stick to a yellow brick then you will see what I'm talking about unless I'm the only one having that issue.
