    > The map needs better hint system especially angular corner hints on corners to separate areas and avoid over-rendering (mostly needed on corners between T spawn and B but all corners could benefit from the hints). You already have areaportals... Ha Will2K, i learn more reading your map reviews and analysis, then i do from most tutorials.. =P I will definitely be checking out this map upon your recommendation, as well I'll try to play all the entries submitted so far this weekend :)

    I had the chance to playtest the map yesterday and I quite like the overall aspect and the balance between visuals and gameplay. You obviously put a lot of effort in the architecture judging from all the curved walls and cylindrical towers with varying shapes. The detailing here and there adds a nice touch to the level such as the bent stairs in A among others. Timings are quite fast and allow fast rotations between bombsites; CT-A 9s, CT-B 7s, T-A 15s, T-B 15s, A-B 14s. I gathered my findings for you in the hope of further polishing this map. You have 6 invalid T spawn points as denoted in the console. Go to these coordinates in Hammer and make sure the entity is not touching the floor or any surrounding geometry (at least 4 hammer units should be observed). The lighting is adequate overall but couple of tunnels were a bit dark and could hinder smooth gameplay. Make sure to add some lights to avoid dark tunnels/corners. Wall decorations and closed doors are better off clipped (clip brush) to avoid players getting stuck near them. It’s better to add some better lighting to the sewers entrance as I totally missed it in the dark on the 1st run. The map needs a bit of optimization in addition to the work you have already done to further improve fps that were dropping in some places due to over-rendering. You need to nodraw the back of the towers as well as the top of the battlements mainly around A (dented decoration on top of fortress walls). You also need to nodraw the world brushes that are hidden underneath floor displacements that are used to seal the map (they are still rendered even when not seen under displacements). You already func_detailed most of detail brushes but you forgot a rounded stair under the balcony in B as well as all those slanted brick roofs (they needlessly divide your visleaves and clutter your PVS). The map needs better hint system especially angular corner hints on corners to separate areas and avoid over-rendering (mostly needed on corners between T spawn and B but all corners could benefit from the hints). You already have areaportals but some more are needed to reduce excess visibility. Make sure to have areaportals on all doorway/hallway ends and add some horizontal areaportals too (especially in arched courtyard between T spawn and A). A solid map that has potential in this contest :) I wish you the best of luck; keep it up.

    This is quite a nice map. The map feels very "french revolution" in a way I like it. This has a great chance to win. :)
