This is NOT a poll about gameplay on maps, as there are many other topics out there to discuss that.

This is about visual styles for maps.

Which one of those is your preferred?

For me, it just depends on my current mood.  Overall I prefer Gothic and Space type maps.  However, I keep finding maps that are new to me, and I like the visuals, even if they aren't one of those two types.

I like all of the above styles but my favorite is the castle/gothic type ones because they often have beautiful styling.

Minimalist didn't fall in the same category as Generic?

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

I believe in balance. Some maps in this style, some in those.

My favourite map is q3dm19 because it's open and dm4ish because of the corridors... I think it's a good thing having maps in all style.

I like the map in castle's style.
In CTF mode is very good to fight from one castle to another.

I'm a big fan of Mario_CTF and many of the space maps, but I like anything where I can see fairly well.

I've submitted no vote cause I like all the designs and I don't want to make one favorizing, but I still really enjoy fragging in industrial zones, design are often sci-fi and just imagined by the mappers (that's great! carry on this way)...
It remind meh something a bit like a world after war, completly destroyed and hopeless...
I like this way ^^

I think that every visual style looks good because if they wouldn't be, nobody would use them anymore.
then, I believe that the visual style depends of the map's form itself, I just can't imagine a Oasago2 with slimefac's textures.

That's why I believe that any visual style of the list are great till they are nicely used.

(but I prefer temple, there sould be more maps made with the oa_dm5's textures Smiley )
