First of all: looking good Ted & Griff.
I've just been talking to Ted on skype about the map so most of my notes were left there. But just to show some activity, some points here as well:
- might be a good idea to move gary's name and sniper a bit more to the right ( same for brandon) For clarity reasons.
- reducing the amount of cracks and grooves on all the areas (the tracks and side areas) should greatly affect the clarity of the map. I like the addition to the theme, but I think you can make that clear enough with less animations. No need to overdo it.
Getting to understand the map takes some time now, this is not bad per se but would probably lead to less popularity later on. Try to reduce the theme a bit and increase clarity, the mechanics of this map are going to be enough to get used to for new players (and I think the theme can be brought out just as well a bit more minimalistic)
- in regards to mechanics: very hard to say a lot of sensible stuff about that. I say get it into beta or even alfa so we can play it somewhere (without even playing for points ;) ) and find out how this works. Because I think that is the easiest and quickest way to spot things that are suboptimal or get new ideas
- add the fact that the Warden resets to neutral to the legend

I think this and what I said to Ted is enough for now, skyping over this is probably easiest. And I realy hope a playable test-version will be available soon, as that would make it a lot easier to get into more detail about the bonuses and the desired balance.

Thanks for the thoughts Maert... ted sent me your convo on skype so I can see what was said.

Mostly graphics, which I will for sure work on... but I think the big thing right now is working on game play of course.

Once game play actually passes, i can actually work full on the graphics, the problem with doing graphics now is things always change and it would suck to work 4-5 hours on 1 little detail only to see it changed.

I do understand graphics are not the best atm but they will change after game play is done, but if clearing up the graphics a bit helps clarify the gameplay then OK

Is it possible to test the map with a few guys in some abandoned part of this site? ;) That would make it so much easier to find out if the mechanics work as is desired.

Ted the car named Todos familia is wrong as Todos is masculine plural and Familia is Feminine singular so it should be Todas Familias

Thank you Rev for pointing out the grammar error, will put it on the to-do list, which will get done if we get approval to move forward with this.

The gameplay could use some clarification. I keep looking at the map and I can't quite figure it out.

What confuses you? Did you read the key? Maybe we need to simplify the graphics more like Maert said so it will be more clearer but it's pretty strait forward as it is... Can you tell us what exactly your not getting?

Somewhere, I like your map, I feel however that there are some "but" (no no [-X not that kind of buts)

Now it's my personal opinion "but" I think that there are many patterns (some There is very small / dense) it can get people's screens to flicker and make your eyes tired, there are also many dark colors, but the movie also took place in a very dark environment.

Gameplay: You have 4 corners, are they starting points? if they are I suggest that the "team colors" start together, it will give a greater feeling of a "race"

That's all for now, continue the good work

No "butt's" around here! The theme is to be dirty, rough, steel, concrete and danger/prison/"The Man". Might be a few too many textures, but until we have more feedback about the feasibility of game play we aren't going to put anymore time into the graphics. We think the game play is ready to be picked apart by the beta testers :D

My understanding of XML is that we cannot dictate two different colored teams (players) to be dropped in the same location (guard towers), if I'm understanding correctly what you are suggesting.

Thanks for the feedback!

That was exactly what I suggested, that would realy bring in the essence of the theme.
