    Kliener is on the bottom right of the picture to give scale.

    Map made based on an image in my head (although the image in my head was a little different, the platforms weren't so big (they need to be big to build on) and the entire thing was a lot bigger). It was mostly done to see what interesting shapes I could make with just brushes and displacements, no models.

    It's been a while since I've done a non-commisioned map so I took a little break to do this.

    A huge thanks to samt/YoiT for the great music.

    Wow. That is... incredible. Does the map continue at all beyond those outer curved pillars?

    I'm afraid not. It's as big as hammer will allow.

    Wow, this is beautiful! Will you be making any more maps like this?
    I'd like to see some more abstract maps with twisting corridors and strange sights, like something out of the Twilight Zone.

    Actually, due to it's relative simplicity and nice texturing work (the pics betray these), it actually runs pretty well on mid-range computers.

    'Tis a beauty, a wonder, and I hope many will take advantage of this map for something. Totally awesome.

    Wow. This is quite certainly the most interesting map I have ever layed eyes on. As for coming up with the abstract idea, cool, but its not too hard to come up with abstract stuff like that. Where the real mind blowing starts, is that it is INCREDIBLY hard to accurately portray those ideas. You sir, have managed to portray your abstract vision, not to mention in 3d form too. It must have been a bitch to make that map. Great work, superb implementation.

    This map reminds me of the artifacts from STALKER

    I'd say this is outstanding. I liked how you used one reference: your imagination. I'd say it's possible to do accomplish anything just by using a bit of imagination, you'd agree?

    It looks great! Could you possibly release a darker version of the map? Like a nighttime skybox?It would make the lights in it look really good. But that's just my opinion.

    Oh and just to say again. Huge thanks to yoiT there for the song. Everyone make sure you wait for the main song to kick in when you play the map, it starts off as a quiet beat that you might not hear.

    I was kinda going to, but then I was like naaaaaaah. There's too many things to fix up, it's not really worth it, I don't think people will like it that much.

    This map really fucks with your perception of distance. I tried spawning a combine on a platform while I was in the air, and was completely puzzled when all I saw was a tiny speck fall straight to the ground. Then I realized how fucking huge the platform actually is and how far away I was.

    Shoot, I'm getting one of the same things ZenX2 got wrong -- the edges of the 'spirals' are checkerboarded out. Anything I can do to fix this?

    EDIT: But I admit that even with the graphic errors, it's a fascinating map. Here's how I chose to utilize it:

    Did you minimise whilst playing it at all? That usually fucks textures up.

    Could it be that it is a CS:S or DOD:S texture? Cuase I don't have either of those. :ohdear:
