The texture on the high wall in the first pic could use something to break it up a bit.... Also the Falcon looks like it's about to fall in that pic :p Then there are the "beam" type things on the wall in the third pic.. They look a little wide from what I remember in the movies... Might could use some thining.

 

Other than that the map looks pretty cool.:cool:

Looks really good from just lookin at the images posted, this map has a home on my site!

 

One suggestion would be to put a mock ramp heading into the falcon and some black boxes right outside of it (scaner box)

 

And in the corridor the floors should be shiny heres a picture

other then that it looks perfect, do you have any idea when it will be out?

You can make a floor 'shiny' without making it a mirror. All you have to do is get a relatively high-contrast black and white image with regions of mostly black and regions of mostly white/light grey, for the sake of argument I'll call it shine.jpg, and write the following shader code:

 

textures/yourmap/deathstarfloor_shiny
{   
	qer_editorimage textures/yourmap/deathstarfloor
       {
               map textures/yourmap/shine
               tcGen environment
               rgbGen identity
       }   
       {
map textures/yourmap/deathstarfloor
               blendFunc add
rgbGen identity
       } 
       {
map $lightmap
               blendFunc GL_DST_COLOR GL_ONE_MINUS_DST_ALPHA
rgbGen identity
       }
}

 

Not, that's one of my shader codes from Oracle, a little modified. It works. Make sure your shine texture isn't too bright, or ti'll drown out the base texture.

A mirror is going to drag the FPS down into the mud. Instead of a mirror, use the "Shiny" code that wedge has so nicely provided for you. You'll get the effect of the reflection in the floor without losing so many FPS.

 

Overall, I would say it looks great. I do agree with LK's comment about breaking up that upper wall texture. I don't think there's many shots of it in the movies, but take some artistic liberties and do something creative so it's not so repetitive.

 

I would also be careful about the caps you have on the doorway patches in the corridor - they don't blend in so well with the wall. It's a small oversight, but it's noticeable.

 

Other than that, it looks like an awesome start. I'm guessing this will be a SP map?

I'm not sure.I'm working on many other maps,too.Soon I will post more deathstar screenshots from the elevator place,detentionblock AA-23 and the hangar controllroom :)
