Download Hightitude (888 KO)

Built to ward off flying fortresses, these concrete towers failed to prevent invasions when planetary landers became large and robust enough to use ramming manoeuvres against their weapon platforms. All but one were dismantled.

This is a rather uninspired Deathmatch arena built because I need something to fiddle with while I'm focusing on something else. UT2004 takes too much work for such an unfocused project so here's my first UT map since God knows when. Any comment appreciated.

Checking out your work is always a pleasure. Your attention to the details is spot on. Very nice clean lines, and the lighting is just right. Thank you for sharing.

I haven't played it or even downloaded it yet but the screenshots look great. Just goes to show how such basic shapes can make a nice appearance. I also like the textures you used. I'll definitely take a look at it tomorrow.

Thanks for the kind words friends. Smiley
The map has been updated to prevent players from jumping up to the roof. Original link in the first post has been updated.

This is one of those maps that showcases how much good lighting does. Getting that correct is hard but it looks like you spent the time to do it very well.

I always think of the map proper much like a referee in a sporting event. They need to be good but the very best ones bring out the most in the participants without becoming the focus of the game themselves. Deck, Face, Stalwart, etc are all favorite maps but all are basically just simplistic designs done well. This map is like that too.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with simple done right.

Did you happen to make a Gold version of this gem?  If not, do you mind if I switch out the items to U1 items?

Map updated: crash in the maplist caused by improper screenshot. This should be fixed. You can redownload the map.

I haven't planned a UGold version but do what you want. Just keep me credited.

I really love the style of the map especially that you mostly use dark and bright base textures to create contrast without using complex textures with shapes in it.

This makes the map look so clean as it is!
Also the lighting is superb in my eyes!


Well done Hellkeeper I do really like your maps 👍🏼

I'm thrilled to see such a positive reception for this map, but on the other hand, I'm a bit confused because this is the first map in years I've done with no love, no inspiration, no emotion, on a symetric layout without care, just for the sake of mapping, and it got more praise than huge ambitious projects I put my soul into. Grin

Thank you all, this is heartwarming for an old grognard who thought he had lost it for a while.
Krull0r: I'm awed by yours, I'm flattered you liked it. Smiley

Quite a late update, but I just fixed a hole caused by a misplaced portal. Redownload the map to get version 1.4.
