I had a go as well - it's really flattering that I helped encourage you to create something, and I hope that you continue! You've definitely got the hang of creating different indoor and outdoor environments :)

For things to improve, I'd say to try to balance the monsters you're facing and the weapons/health you're giving more - the monsters here were towards the high end with quite basic weaponry and a lack of ammunition. But then again, you might deliberately be going for that :) Usually beginners forget to make maps interesting when you have to backtrack through them, so it was great that you changed some things to surprise the player.

Man this was informative for me. I see a few textures errors that passed me by. Then i know where i need to move the ssg for a better Flow to the map. The rocket luncher need to be in clear view of the player when it spawns on the Return trip.
And I should add a few health packs!

The "traps" works well enough against David atleaste 😏

The First door not opening from one Side is meant to "punish" those too eager for the shotgun 😏

The problem with getting snowed in knowledge-wise when it Comes to the map. makes it alot easier for me with out seeing faults and weaknesses 😅

The non scrolling conveyer belt was me not knowing at all how to do it 🤔

Thank you for this. I just sent the donation because i thought it was for a good thing! Then you go run my short little map and it makes my day :-D

A update to the map will arrive sometime after my trip to the land of the rising sun. And I Will continue with map02.

Map02 is Ready for testing!
still working on alot of texture and Geometry. but the Layout and all the traps and creatures are there and i would LOVE some feedback on how hard you think it is and if you think its fun! :D
Can you find any secrets?

this map is possible to run with gun start! so no need to run the first map if you already have.
