Sequel to gm_forest!

The map is sequel to my former maps gm_Forest, and gm_Winterforest. The first map was released on June 1st 2007, and that's the reason for this late date. Theme of the original map was rainy morning so now there's a sunny day. There's a large lake and alot more to explore than in the original. The trees have grown larger and as a few rock formations collapsed it gives you access to, for example the lake. In my forest maps it has always been the idea to have a forest with no houses or else. So that people can build houses if they so want, but there's none already. It is nothing but a dense forest but there have been some special things like the "three snowmen" in Winterforest map etc. I hope you enjoy :D

    The map in general looks nice but the HDR makes the sky overbright on the horizon. Also as said before, it lacks a 3D skybox which I consider it to be a critical feature in this kind of maps. Even a simple 3D skybox would make the map look 10 times better.

    I do not agree with the ones who said that you should add buildings since your original idea was to actually have a natural landscape.

    In my opinion if you add the 3D skybox and set the bloomscale to 1.1-1.2 by using an env_tonemap_controller, the map could be worth 9.5/10-10/10 in my opinion.

    Good job by the way, you must have spent plenty of time on this one.

    The map is good, but not excellent. I got an error with the skybox, the sides are shown normal but the top texture is purpleblack, also some trees are flashing when I go near them and there are some areas where you cant go but they look like you could. The map is not enought tall. I was expecting something bit better.

    I understand that comment, but the idea has always been for there to be totally untouched forest. I must choose in the future to either continue on the forest series or do something else.

    You choose that yourself =]

    Pros: It looks good, everyone can see you have sitting down working on this in many hours.
    It looks very much like a forest, so thats good, because it IS a forest ^^
    Cons: There is no 3D skybox, that could have been a cool feature. And maybe some abandoned buildings, or a small hut, something like that would make it much more fun to play
    Improvements: Add a 3D skybox, and some abandoned buildings
    Notes: Great job on this, i like what i see and i see what i like. This is good, but you could add some small changes to give it the little extra thing, you know?
