Wow, replies I wasn't aware existed!

Thanks, they're the two popular maps I've made. Market Garden is probably my personal favourite out of all my own maps.

Normandie is a true classic. It has stood the test of time, it's fun to play/gameplay is balanced, and so many players are familiar with it. One of these days I'll have to get your autograph...
This is the first time I've seen Alpine. Very nice! I just added it to the rotations of aloha.pk's capture the flag and tug of war servers.
Why did you stop working on Last Stand?
Well, I find if you pay attention to the little things, the big things sort themselves out.
I was honestly surprised with the popularity of Normandie. I guess it just was the right kind of map for the right time, since there were no other maps (that I can recall seeing hosted, at least) set in an urban environment around when it was released. I may have made one classic, but you've made many more. I think it should be me who is after your autograph.
Alpine is a beautiful map to look at, but never really had a game in it though. I'll keep an eye out for it being hosted so I can give it a try!
I stopped working on Last Stand for several reasons. I can no longer afford to host my own server, which was crucial for testing it before releasing. There was relatively little interest in the game mode (even with people such as Sponge hosting their own servers for it - a big thanks to those who did), people didn't understand how it worked, and there was a rather large bug which, no matter what I tried, I couldn't seem to get rid of.

Thanks! I agree that it is very nice aesthetically, but the main thing is that it plays well, which is something I've yet to really see.
