Looks pretty good. Is it just the one area?

Who was the engineering genius who designed that to be supported primarily by what appear to be fiber cords? That thing would sway like mad (especially in a canyon) and if it's tightly affixed to the walls, structural integrity could be compromised.

What's more, the area in the first shot doesn't really look all that good, to be frank. You need to make it look a bit more natural and less abrupt. Jaggediness works here, but linear, flat areas do not. You might want to reconsider that wall texture, and the floor looks more like dusty soil that is in the middle of a year-long drought, not the frigid interior of a frozen cave on in such a cold climate as that.

The other shots (save the whole fiber part, which bugs me), however, are quite commendable, and if you'd just work on the interior areas, you're on the way to making one sturdy level.

The table in the first shot looks kinda off. Other than that it looks good. Pleeeeeeease put concs in it and consider using ammo.cog. Also, lighting would enhance it very nicely.

Actually, on closer inspection, you'll find that they're chains. Even more swayage!

Looks superb! I have a few suggestions however:

-Make it darker
-Tone down the blue tint just a bit

Funny you say that Flexor, because right after I posted this thread I made the tint a blue that is close to black, (looks much better) and lowered the ambient lighting by 70%.

And Grismath, they are chains, and I can make my platforms supported by chains if I want http://forums.massassi.net/html/tongue.gif

And its funny you say that about the first chot, I always thought that was one of the best areas. (save lighting)
I will get a better shot of it..

I never thought of trees...good idea....im sure I can dig some up somewhere.

I think it's a bit too dark. Maybe you should add some more contrast by adding a few brighter lights, but not too bright.

looks good. maybe lights inside the cave but outside looks fine. doesnt it look gloomy and dark in winter where it snows?

I know it needs light, but its extremely hard due to the ammount of 3do's. There is always dynamic light, but meh.

Im going for the dull, dim, gloomy look so the lack of contrast is semi-intentional.

No, there is a series of caves and caverns built into the rock. There is also one long ice slide that spits you out with into the main area.

That alone makes it worth downloading in my book n.n
But so far it already looks quite nice. Spiffy snow.
