Cool! Uhh.. I hope you replaced the voice acting in ABBA? :P Just kidding.

I have a bit more time to play through the TC now (currently at the Wharf), so I'll definitely check it out.

I would never replace Maarten's fantastic voice :P I did add subtitles to it as well as a neat little trick where the character you've picked replies to him as well. It's only minor but it really adds to it I think :) keep us posted on what you think of the TC!

I just checked out both ABBA and Red 5: nice job!  8) Also played ABBA as my own character, just to hear my own stupid one liners hahaha.

Last time I've played the episode I was somewhere half way through The wharf, I'll post more thoughts when I've finished the level (the rain causes some lag, at least I assume it's the rain). I'll just say that I'm really enjoying it so far!

I just played Block City. Some random unorganized thoughts :

It was good but with a bit of "extra" it could have been a lot more.

Some SoS visual glitches in that building requiring the yellow card.

Plenty of chaingun ammo but no chaingun? I had EXACTLY enough ammo for the entire map though, I had 0 of everything left when I killed the BLord.

Everything looked solid, well proportionned and textured.

But you know, it almost feels too serious. The map lacks a bit of "crazy sauce" to be really great, 2 or 3 secret places, have 2 of the places be interconnected, leave a little room of freedom for the player (let him choose between 2 ways to go in the same building for instance), give one more weapon, and it would have been a lot better. The map feels a little too "flat", streamlined, gameplay-wise.

Yeah well it is a quickie. Maybe one day it evolves into something else..

Plenty of chaingun ammo but no chaingun? I had EXACTLY enough ammo for the entire map though, I had 0 of everything left when I killed the BLord.

Check the big wall with the OJ signs; both the freezer & chaingun are there.

lots of cool maps today on the site in the 'on this day...' box. be it the map themselves or their respective authors, some of which seem to have released quite a few other, cool levels that never really caught the mainstream attention (and this is exactly where the 'other maps by the same author' box comes in handy)

Thanks mate.
We're trying to dig out enjoyable maps for your amusement.
I'm having lots of maps by known authors still to come  ;)

nice to hear. yeah, this site is really efficient now as far as referencing user maps is concerned, especially now that the data base is huge, all the features, 'related' links and various types of listings work together in a really practical way, making it really convenient to find content !

This is one of the best looking DM-map I've seen for a while.
Haven't played it in DM.....just wandered about in order to take some screenshots.
Some of you might be thinking of building a cave / terrain styled map...
Just look how he pulled it off way back in 1997!

Played the map "Shade" by Bliss today.
It's been sitting on my HD for ages but it was about time to share it.
For a map from way back in 1997 it's very well designed.
Too much ammo and health is scattered around but it is quite fun anyway.

Shade by Bliss

Played it after reading your post. I'm agree! Design of the map is very good for 1997, and there's a lot of elevators going up and down, which is rarely used nowaways.

I remember seeing the very end of this map as a part of CBP1 - now I know where it comes from. Thanks!

Thought it was about time I played a couple of Merlijn's maps.
Started off with "Red 1" and then straight onto "Red1: Poisoned Lands".
Cool to see the difference in his building skills in maps released in 2001 and 2013.

Well worth a try  :)

I got a lot of that back when I actually played maps to do reviews. It was interesting playing people's early stuff, then their later releases relatively close together.
If you follow them over the years, it's like having a puppy grow up to a dog - you really don't notice the slow changes.
If you have a puppy for a couple weeks, then trade it in for a full grown dog, you can see the dramatic shift. Same with people's mapping styles.
