Tower of BZ, Level Four (September 19th, 2007)

This was a collaborative map making project organized by ducatiwannabe, and the idea was to have a tower made by ten different map makers. We started off with a template that was 100 x 100 x 45 units, and a few instructions on objects not to include to simplify assembly later on. This was only my second map, and I didn't really know if I should enter. I decided to give it a shot and came up with a 50 object map. It was getting a little cramped, but I think with a little work and a slightly bigger area it could function as it's own map. I incorporated general themes from The Passion map, Badgerkings, and Hix.

What I like most about the map is the corners. A giant pyramid is positioned so tanks can shoot from the second floor to the third floor. Since the map is enclosed in a cube, the shots ricochet off the ceiling and rapidly bounce down the third floor. There is not much you can do to avoid them if done correctly.

The best view I could get.


It was interesting to see the final map and how the ten different styles differed from one another.
