That is one epic map. And on BFME I, too. How in the world did u get your mod team to give you so many custom models?
I didn't have to ask, it was more a case of Nertea's dedication to the mod In our staff forums, i started the map with the assets that were already in the mod. After seeing what i came up with originally, Nertea could more easily see what could be made, and got to modelling. And because the map is one of the mod's more important maps, the team was more than happy to put in the effort to make it as good as it could possibly be.
It was more a combined approach to the map, rather than "i'm the mapper, so make some models for me". As a mapper, it's easier for me to map based on the assets i have already, rather than make someone model a piece based on what i have laid out So it was more a case of Nertea making a huge bunch of objects, which i then got to play with, and show to the team for critism/feedback.
I really didn't have any preconceived idea of the custom models, until they were made by Nertea/Andros. The first version of the map i showed to the team looks very different to the version that is in the update
A little side note to give you an idea of the work that's gone into this map:
I originally laid out my concept for the map in April this year, making it a 4 month long project - a huge time for just one map, when i normally finish a map in 1-2 weeks. My concept was also based off a layout that m@tt had done for RA in early 2007, so you could even say this map's been in the works for 3 and a half years

I'm glad people like the map . It'll be in the next public update, though I'm not quite sure when it'll be.
Is there any approximate date for the next update?

Without a doubt you are the best mapper I've seen around (It makes me glad you create BFME 1 Maps).
