Hi, ok -I just want to say a few things then I will let the banter begin...

First off, the Cell Arena does not have loads of tall rocks everywhere for people to hide behind, it is mostly open desert with a few rocky outcrops.

Secondly, the Cell Arena is a LOT bigger than what is in that picture. I talking here about the actual arena itself and not the map as a whole.

Third and last thing, you need to make the confines of the arena a LOT bigger, you need more height and a lot more open desert after the arena. Less places to hide, and more to dodge -makes the battles more exciting.

Ok, thats all from me.

When you make a map that's filled with water, it will become very framey for some reason. Not to be confused with lag.

It's been like that since GL Quake 1. It has to do with the water transparency and fill rates. I forget the whole thing. What's important though is that the engine limitation carries from Quake 2's engine (why o why did Valve not fix it ;/)

2 reasons:

1) If the area was wide open, it would look a little stupid floating to the "edge" of the map and being able to look out/down into nothing but the sky box.

2) There are a lot of rocks and things there to block the player's view. When you look an entire map at one time, it kills your framerate - Halflife just wasn't made to handle lots of polys.

The size of texture also creates huge amounts of lagg. Happens from large open areas... that is why it is difficult to make esf maps
