    Hi, ArchviZ 3D artist for some quick visual feedback here !

    First of all, great job on the overvall ambience and the 3D detail, i really love the "old school metalic beams with modern concrete" style. It feels like a mix of an old train station and soviet factory, really cool !
    I don't know what's been done and what's not (i can't download the map to check in-game right now so this is only low res screenshots based) but here are some quick thoughts :
    - I think an old, a little bit rusty material with dirt masks would be great on the beams. You probably know it, but you can find some great examples / tiled textures on http://www.cgtextures.com/
    - Concrete material is nice, but a bit of variation would greatly improve the whole thing by breaking the repetition. I'm thinking about some unwraped dirts / leaks on sections of walls, stuff like that. Outpost 23 is a great example of that kind of things.
    - I'm not a big fan of curved ramps in the main room, it doesn't feel "natural" to me, purely visual and not architecturally legit. That said i agree it's very subjective ^^
    - Suspended lamps 3D models need a little rework, maybe with metal wire + cables suspending sytem and a more metalic / reflective mat, idk.

    Hope this is not intrusive, those are just some personal thoughts and i really like your work. Can't wait to DL / test it when my connection is fixed

    Nice design and realisation. When someone can't finish the "Deck-test" map forward, you did your own variant. Great job!

    Official deck indeed. Although, it will be difficult for Epic to let go of Facing Worlds and Deck 16. It's their trademark maps..

    They will do something, and chonglee challenged Epic to see who's best. And ****, Epic will have a really hard time beating this, but I am sure they are loving it!


    Let the games begin

    This should be the official Deck. It's like 2-3x as fun as the current official Deck, no kidding. I'm a bit of a Deck hater personally but this feels fresh and I agree with the scaling. Because of the added room, the flow is just so much better. For me the official Deck is just too cramped too spammy. This one hits the nail in terms of scaling for this installment for me.

    I hope Epic takes some serious look at this.

    There's just one thing I'd personally change.... the elevator speed. It feels tiny bit too slow for me, I keep jumping off of it too early because it moves slower and it doesn't give that upwards momentum therefore like in the official UT4 one / UT3 deck for example but I'm glad to see the annoying bars gone at the elevators, I personally prefer it without them.

    EDIT: I'd consider also removing or repositioning (in front of the box on the floor, next to the wall) that one sniper ammo on top of the added boxes in the corner coming from the elevator part and making your way to the left-side hallway. The sniper ammo there obscures much of your view or aim of sight so it can become an annoyance.

    Well Chong,

    Greaaaaaaat update

    Had few rounds and everything made since the previous version is awesome !

    Also, I really like your lighting scheme and I'm eager to see this level properly textured

    PLZ, now, stop making changes, it's the best Deck I've played since UT99

    Hi, awesome job! I am especially surprised by small size of the package.

    Visuals are superb, gameplay as well. A bit laggy on my low-end laptop (2020M pentium dual 2,4 Ghz, 8750M, 8GB DDR3) so whatever optimisations would be nice. Not worse than TitanPass though.

    I played a full match with bots yet I completely forgot to take a look on the hall's ceiling to see if I like the sunlight, but it looks great on screens - I like those warm colours.

    I will certainly give it a few more runs and let you know again. GJ!

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the brighter upper deck

    Wowzers. A superb remake. I love the little tweaks, the clean looks, the more open corridors, the overall clarity. Its like night and day compared to UT3 deck.

    Also, the flat walls make the new wall running movement possible (unlike the deck test map currently released with pre-alpha).

    Great work.

    Just played a couple of offline rounds with the 9/30 update. Wow, what a huge visual update with textures on the meshes. The visibility is fantastic and the visuals are classic chonglee, super clean and tidy. Awesome job!

    You probably know this already but the bots have an affinity for jumping in the goo pit over and over.

    Keep up the great work on this!

    Thanks! Looking forward to your feedback. Let me know how do you feel about the boxes I added in that curvy corridor.

    Awesome job!
    Thanks! I hope when the details getting added into the map, the visual clarity could still be well maintained. This is the kind of things that make building UT maps quite fun.

    We have to make this deck by default and remove the original one. chonglee is one of the best mappers in this forum because he analyze gameplay on map then he make a map itself and ofc he listen ppl and try to implement some ideas. Man you have flair in mapping. Epics should take you as a mapper.
    Thanks for your kind words!
    There are plenty of very talented ppl and many of them contribute much more than me. I am just a mapping hobbyist and trying to do a little bit.

    Let's try it out for a bit with sunlight. It's another way to make it new and fresh. The UDK version of the UT3 Deck looked great in the sunlight with the improved lighting engine.
    I do feel the sun light brightening the upper deck a little bit too much. But this is just a WIP fast lighting setup. The actual lighting pass will be started when the visual details (mesh, texture, material) are all in.
    I guess I will probably still keep some sun light because there are outdoor background and the vista. At the same time I will try to look for some old school feelings in those indoor areas.

    Oh..didn't think of that. Need to replay that game to see what references I could get from it.

    I am glad so far the scale is well accepted. It took quite some time to tweak it. And it's quite satisfying to see the vertical walls finally mean something useful. I was once not so sure about it (before there was the wall sliding) because the slanted walls are the iconic Deck looks.
