Breli's Newtown Map


    • History and concept: Newtown is very similar to its sibling "Dawnfort" (my two "second generation" maps). Technically as well as from a gameplay perspective. Newtown is very losely based on an old map "Town" which was made by Spoon himself if I remember correctly. The old "town" map never got released for all I know. It was quite basic but had an interesting layout. So we tried to recreate it with Newtown. I developed this one in parallel to Dawnfort (or shortly thereafter) which is why both are quite similar in terms of technique as well as models/assets used. Thus, both maps feel quite similar and look a like to a certain extend.
    • My own review: Pretty much everything that I wrote for Dawnfort applies here as well. All in all I was quite happy with Newtown. Like Dawnfort it could use some fresh textures and more advanced brushwork. Specifically the "roof building in progress" area is a bit off and doesn't feel quite right. Moreover, the abundance of rail tracks are a bit over the top and whatever I had in mind with the small "train thingy" below the watertank remains a mystery ;) ...
    • Map facts:
      • Gamemodes: DM, TDM, RTP and BR. However, the layout is not really suited for BR.
      • Release year: 2007
      • Bot support: Yes
      • Size and brush complexity: 3383 brushes and 689 entities
