    Details:

    Akar layout and pickups placement are coming from my UT3 level, DM-Mako L2. It's a small DM for 1on1 match, at max 2on2. It's not a remake. I inspired myself on my older map to create something completely new. The scale is adjusted to UT4 gameplay. Most pickups are at the same location as the original.

    I do not think that in 2018, 300 - 500 MB maps is an issue if players want to play highly detailed levels. Even stock maps are pretty huge.

    PLZ, leave your comment in the final thread if you intent to post your feedback, THX

    I've upped for further testing, but nearly 400mb is a hard ask of most players!

    A crisp and clean update yet again! I especially like the lights in the glass on the pillars and look forward to the 1.0.

    The next version will be the final 1.0 since releasing another pre-final version won't making any sense.

    Lot's of progress was made since B1 I've update the OP so you can enjoy the progress

    It's nice to see the overall map progress by taking pics on the same areas since A1.

    Ha, ok, I understand.

    No worries, all my maps have a story, I just didn't think about it yet

    Lore would be the story/facts surrounding the map with regard to the Unreal connaissance. Reference on this matter can be found here.

    Cool

    But what do you mean by lore?? Sorry, my English isn't that good

    Awesome! It's looking good with the wall lights!
    We hope you're thinking up some lore for it as well.
