Please read everything below before replying or voting on the poll, Thank you!

Us as Fracture Studios know that people love a good looking map with lots of detail. After seeing most of feature tests for upcoming maps we have noticed in videos and pictures that they are bland and boring, with almost no variety. Dull walls and a boring floor, while it may not seem apparent but putting your features in a good looking map makes the most of differences (rather than having it in the boring default test map). So we were thinking about making a test map that is medium sized with quiet a bit of detail to make your features look better in pictures and videos without having to put it into your map and compiling it. While we have not decided on whether or not we actually want to do this we wanted to see what the community's thoughts were.  Please vote in the poll above on whether or not we should do this and all reply's to this post will be read and taken into consideration. Thanks everyone in the zombie community!

Being honest, I dont think you guys should waste time in something like that. a square shitty box is enought to test features. just my opinion.

I think its a great idea if you all are going to put a variety of examples in the map.

Why would anyone spend time detailing a test map? I don't need detail to test if a script works.

Many people would not use it, Because it is a "test" map. Also it would take longer to compile. What if people are constantly adding and deleting kvps for whatever they are testing?

If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

If you do this then instead of sniperbolt box map copies we will have fracture studios testmap copies. The goal is to not get copies of any map, not to have the copies look better. So unfortunately I do not see this as a solution and have voted no. What would be useful is a test map that correctly demoed all _zombiemode features but you would need to pair with a working script placer in order to make sure all of the features work.

We will release our own "test map" which is a simple box that demos all of the UGX prefabs etc so that people know how to use them but I do not think we will bother making it a detailed map for the reason I stated above.

So after looking at the votes and reading the reply's we have made our decision of not doing this mostly for the fact that people dont want us wasting our time. So this post will be going down in the next couple of days but we definitely appreciate all of the feed back.
Thanks again
