Good morning/afternoon fellow CyberGamerz.
As some of you may know im DevilsD, ive been mapping for quite a long time and today I would like to give everyone a first look at my newest project, mp_frostbite. Some might remember me teasing a few screenshots of a very early lighting/style build a few months ago for a then unnamed map i was working on over in the Australian Forums. Those screenshots got some good preliminary feedback and i was really liking how it looked as well so i decided to go ahead with it.
A few months now down the line and ive fleshed out a decent layout ready for everyone's eyes. A few words about my thinking behind the layout before i show you anything.
Many of you i hope have seen my previous work on mp_shantytown
and the main thing i wanted to ensure was that this map played completely different, so in contrast this new project is very different. Its about 1/3rd bigger than mp_shantytown and is less enclosed. Im trying to promote AK/Scope overall but with the main points of interest being closer quarters for SMGs.
So without further a due i present to you my early concept layout for mp_frostbite. Do bear in mind that this is in ALPHA and is subject to so much change i shouldnt even need to say this
Although im looking for all feedback you have please dont judge it to harshly.

Yes lots of Snow
Ive found that having an over-abundance of snow can really detract from the feel that im wanting so once i get closer to beginning a Detail Build the amount of snow texturing will probably be reduced alot. Dont worry though it will still be a very snow centred map and if it turns out to look better i will add more snow as is required
I hope everyone likes the direction this is going in so far. As usual i welcome any and all feedback/questions or comments good or bad, not only does it help the map grow having the communities input but it also makes me better as a mapper. So please tell me what you think but heed what i said earlier about it being in ALPHA
Thanks guys and dont forget to check back later to not miss any updates in the future.
