Some honest feedback:

The sewer map has a nice colour to it, but is VERY low poly, looks like a UT map.

The China map looks like you stole meshes from Angelheart.

DM arena looks awful, has severe texture scaling/colour and lighting issues, makes me want to scratch my eyes out.


Don't despair, grab a copy of 3D Studio Max and make some l33t l33t meshes, they are the key to beautiful maps.

Yea i know the Arena looks ugly but who said it was ready? lol It started off as a play around map thats why there is those BIG stone things at the side of the arena. Oh yea China was made by AngelHeart and i changed it around took out all the weapons added some houses, some doors, a few meshes. But none of those are finished.
P.S. WOW Dalai TALKS!!

Don't steal other people's maps, meshes or textures. Thievery is WRONG.

Yes, it's fine to use stuff if you have people's permission to do so. You can obviously use any textures or meshes from Thievery for a NB map.

However, if you're serious about making maps, you should learn to make your own stuff!

That's nice, but $159 and 285,000 polys are a wee bit excessive for a 2K3 mod

AT least somehow contact her and ask if you can do this. You're stealing her work you know, and when I look at it, it looks like she put a lot of effort in it.

You should at least ask him/her for permissions. I'll doubt he/she will allow you to beat his/her level up...

Hey why not use that for the female guard, who says guards can't be beautiful? And the question would be is, would you knock out or snipe a guard with such a pretty face? There's their defense right there, their looks. No REAL armor, just some chain-mail bikini or something and have her carrying some huge weapon to smite any thief under a light in awe , or any male guard caught oogeling .
