I like the main idea. This map could be good.

Sadly, some glitch ruin it.
-Strange light. I looked like if the lights were everywhere.
-A missing texture,
-Blocked opened doors.
-A missing stair.
-Non weld-able door.
-I stuck too much objective.
-The Boss didn't spawn. (I'll check this later again)

See the pictures and the descriptions below them.

Any other thing I liked.
Up-voted by 6. I'll increase my up-vote as you're fixing the glitch.
Keep your head up. :)

Updated version released. The shadows are dynamic, so if you change your lighting to medium you will see it how I intended. Let me know how much this affects your performance. I am still looking into options for low-end graphics users.

I'm giving this a 9, this is a fantastic map and I'm sure it would have taken ages to build! It's a traditional jungle temple based theme, which really reminds me of things like Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, Temple Run, Apocalypto etc. Visually stunning and atmospheric, and would be great for 6 players.

Only thing for me is the size of the place! Large maps mean long runs to trader pods. With a map this good, I will tolerate it, but I hope the pods can be moved closer in towards the centre. This can easily accommodate more than 6 players, maybe 10, 15 players even.

Big congrats to the map maker. I hope to see newer versions of this and hopefully other maps from you.

Thanks Tunnel$. I will definitely continue my work on it. Glad you recognize the work and potential. Now that I have learned how most things work, I look forward making a map without the learning process. As for being large, I think the effect is mitigated a bit by the darkness (15min in is peak darkness). I'm not certain if the secondary spawns are working, but you will respawn in the center hall (4 pillars with the 5 doors) so trader will will be trivial.

Trader pathing not working. Map out of contest rules.

Was playing on the public server of my team with 6 players. The map is nice.
But none of the traders have pathlight.

Yeah that's strange. I played with someone else too the other night and no paths, but in solo it seems to be fine. I'll see what I can find on it. Thanks.

With these hardware and settings all official maps run well, 60-50 FPS.
50FPS the worst, when many effects are active at one.
(Heal grenade gas, Siren cream, Nuke gas, and many Zeds around)

And we (not rich people) say thank you for think about us. :)

I've found more bugs. Watch the screen-shots and read the 'captions' below them:

I hope it helps you.

Thanks, those are helpful. Is your fps good on Temple? (type STAT FPS in console). Like I said, if shadows aren't on dynamic (aka lighting set to medium) I don't think you'll see any shadows. Still looking into what can be done about that.

Done. Now you can see how to kills my hardware the 'MEDIUM SHADOWS' setting.

And it's even worse when more Zeds there be and more effects. Siren scream, heal and nuke gas, Husk fireball, Firebug flame, etc.

I'm sorry for I can't play well in higher shadow settings. :(

I see. For a fair comparison, be sure to take screens in the same spots. Also, I notice the shrooms are still untextured. I've updated the file (few days ago) if you'd like update.

Yes, I showed the un-textured mushrooms issue at my first comment.

And here is your comparison screenshots:

We played the map deeper, and found out 2 Fleshpounds getting lost.
Maybe a path problem or blocking problem, dunno...

Here is a little video to show you

The shadows are so dynamic I was blown away with your work. I can tell this must have taken so long to develop. The jungle theme is perfection. I can't wait to see what you produce next!!

Thanks Meli. It did take a while, but it was a good learning experience for the next one. Glad you enjoyed it :)

I found a Bloat stuck here underneath the pillar spawn: I.imgur.com
It was just twitching back and forth, until I got close, then it managed to find the right pathing out.

Map version is B2, which I assume is the latest.

Also, great map by the way. It's definitely a keeper for my server.

Nice map. Really like the feeling and design. There are some troubles though.

1: More ammo spawns
2: Some very bad looking textures (some walls and leaves) Grass texture also seems to have a slight texture graphic bug. The upper front of the grass texture is flickering sometimes.
3: There is a hole in the ground next to a cliff
4: In a cave part where water is, it is actually like you are walking over water, very odd ground placement
5: Shop locator arrow doesnt work
(6:) Maybe some more details? What about little plants growing out of some stone places?

If you fix those things it could even get a official map.
