If you're looking for the (almost) perfect 1 on 1 map don't hestitate. DM-1on1-Augustmoon is here and will provide you in all your fragging needs.

Well, now that we got that out of the way, let's thoroughly examine it! What we have here is a small 1 on 1 map by Nick -neoduck- Donaldson, which is
apparently from the BuF mappack (Which I haven't played yet.. shame on me!). But if this map represents the quality of all maps in the BuF mappack, then get
that instead, because (Yes, again), this map is great!

The architecture didn't make me go "oooooooohh" (Which is one of the few minor points) but it surely is very slick and pleasant to the eyes. Some great trimmingwork, plants, broken floorplates, more plants, pretty pillars, even more plants.. Only thing I didn't
like was the waterfall you can see through glass in the floor, which looked rather fake. I couldn't find any BSP bugs, and that is prolly due to the excellent technical execution. No flaws here.
The lighting was good. Though there were a few lightsources that weren't well enough lit in my opinion. Furthermore the lighting jsut could have that little extra contrast. But you don't hear me complaining, Nick has done a good job on it.
Well, texturing was just pure bliss. Damn impressive texturing, one of the greatest jobs I've seen anyone pull off with the SGtech pack. He managed to create a very variated look. Ownage!

Gameplay is perfect. Just what anyone expects out of a 1 on 1 map.
Bots are great. They hunt you, they jump on you from above, they whipe the floor with you. They were brilliant.
Item placement.. perfect. Great choice of weapons (Flak, RL, SR and Ripper). Just enough health. Maybe a bit of overkill on the armor.
Flow. Again perfect. (Though, I did miss a kind of upper connection on the right side of the level).

The map comes with a new piece of music. Buf-Redhorizon by Zynthetic. I wasn't really too
impressed by the piece (Doesn't really go easy on the ears), some sort of industrial metal/techno.
But then again, what do I know about tracking, all I can judge is wheather it fits the map.
And I think it fits pretty good, and I encourage people to use custom tracks in there maps (If it is
a song that fits, of course), but I think in this case, some standard UT tracks would've fitted also.
There are lots of ambient sounds, which (together with the planting/cob webs) create a decent atmosphere.

Conclusion: This map owns, why are you reading this? Click download and have hours of fun!

You need to get this with the rest of the BuF Bonus Pack. Search around for "cogworks" and get it witht eh mutator and the map pack.

Good use of SGTech1... it neither makes the map look "too heavy" here, nor does it look dull like in the Bonus pack 4 SGTech1 maps. There are some spots that seemed less interesting than the rest of the map, but all in all, the map's appearance is decent. Flows nicely as well.

What Frieza said, but I actually found the music amusing for the map's atmosphere. Also, there are some minor texture misalignments/cuts.
A great map overall and I'd like to check it's UT2003 version when I get a chance.

I can't play it because of the sgtech1.I got the bonuspack zip, I open it, I double-click the umod, it extracts to hellknowswhere, when I turn on UT the next time it reacts very slow and the arrow rattles, and also nothin' has changed...why!!!???But that buf-redhorizon in my UnrealEd 2.0 sounds just Radical!!!I guess i'm in love with Zynthetic!I just know I'm gonna use this beautiful piece in on of my maps, because it's grand!The 8 cause everyone seems to like your map neoduck...Also some nice screenies that prove that there is something to like...Anyways I'm going to comment and give a real score 4 your map after i crack that umod of mine...But how, hmmm?

This was one of my favs out of the BUF map-pack (along with grudge and riftway) I quite like the archy and the use of the sgtech1 texs is truly great! The waterfall area does look a bit "fake" but i think it's cos of the lighting and the water texs, but still the map plays very well. . . not TOO keen on the music track though, but it is growing on me ;)

Wow, I'm impressed. I was about to giving it a modest 8, but after I read the review, it's gotta be 9. Why? Because, for all the positive aspects, I agree with the review down to the last byte AND I do like the waterfall because it is weird, AND I do love the music, because it is even weirder, in a different kind of way, and both add greatly to the atmosphere.

And I love atmosphere. Which adds up to 9, as mentioned.

Good work! Great map!

I've seen a map that looks a bit like this one or it is the same one I don't recall.

Anyhow the map flows great and has a nice theme, but I think your map in "CTF" styl would be fantariffic to keep it short.

EDIT: I've found a flaw!!! I think. The nice looking
reflecting water will not be harmed by Shockballs.
Instead they tend to "warp" to the nearest solid surface. A minor detail.

Kick-ass map!! A bit busy with six bots, but a very nicely designed map. Love the music too! Keep up the good work! Cheers...

Tidy made
The brushes are custom and good chosen
But the gameplay isn't what I suspected
Lightning is not to dark and not to bright, so it plays fine.
textures are good and it's really lookin good

(Sorry i think I made a mistake, sorry neoduck, I really though you maked that map, but ah well)

Very professional feeling map! The texturing is realy well done, so is the flow of the map. I like the ice effect and the water fall below the map you can see from a glass floor. The skybox looks nice as well. Good for about 3 bots. You never really run out of any one to fight as the map flow is so good. First class map.

Ya the music got overmodulated,map is good dm match,
and i can kinda see the latest ut04 cbp mapping style here too.
Still too much gray texture action,but it's still ok
looking,good for 1 on 1 for sure,(i rarely rate over 7 so don;t think this is a low score)
Good DM mappage.
