    This map is great - matchmaking material for sure, and the community wants The Pit!

    What sticks out to me on the screenshots aside from its pixel perfect recreation is the lighting. The tan/eggshell tones or whatever you used looks amazing and they really make the map stand out from other maps that I've seen.

    Have you tried creating a roof like the original Pit or are you adhering to the concept art or object count? I think a roof would add a lot to the overall atmosphere.

    Thanks!

    I wanted this to be the most accurate and best version of the pit so thanks.

    Thanks, and yes I would love to include a roof like in the pit or even something like the original concept art had, but due to object limitations and impeding framerate, that simply wasn't possible at the current time.

    Dayummmm. I'm honestly impressed at how good this looks with the wood textures and color. It feels very Pit-esque yet unique too. Nice job man.

    Glad you feel that way, I aimed for the map to feel just like the pit, but look completely different at the same time.

    This looks fantastic. Loved the original concept art when I saw it.

    One question: how do you get around all of your wood accents being destructible? Projectile blockers?

    They are all covered with projectile blockers. I've had to remove the majority of them from the map because of this, but it still looks almost exactly the same with normal wood textured blocks. The cover pieces on the towers use far too many as is, due to possible shifting of them in custom games.

    Love your choice of aesthetics on this one. It's detailed where you'd expect it to be, but it's not overdone like some of the others I've seen. Excellent job!

    Nice going!! Best Pit Remake I've seen son far.. I was going to build it but after this awesome remake why should I bother.. I wan't to play it but I don't have many friends to get the full slayer experience, so if you want you can add me on xbl and invite me.

    If you need someone to test your maps you can count on me

    Really liking the looks of this remake. Taking the art style of the concept art was a really nice direction too, as it's obviously similar- but ironically 'new'. Looks like you've done a really nice job and I'd love to see this in MM one day.
