looking good!

My only issues and me trying to give some constructive feedback is...

Alot of the walls, rooms and corridors are very similar in textures. I remember listening to one of the dev podcasts when a level designer was on there and he mentioned something along the lines of how it is important to make some areas be landmarks so players know where they are by them. Maybe you could make some of the corridors so they look like they have a purpose like barrel stacks in one or a white clean room in another.

I was googling pictures for ideas...

I understand what you mean and had the same thoughts. I have some homemade concrete textures on the shelf and I want to use soem decals to add stains and such.

Meanwhile this is exactly where realistic buildings and gameworld bumps. I have been in quite a lot of bases. Old and new what they had common is that hallways.cooridors in these bases use the same concrete. Even the Germans in WW2 used the term "Regelbau"
The Regelbau was a standardized bunker built with standard designed vent and concrete.
Like modular gamedesign.

I already tried to overcome the similar texture problem to give these areas an own theme. Like dressing/bathroom, restaurant/mess, some areas under construction ,storage area, some sort of pumproom and the open Rocket launch area.

But I know what you mean and I will throw in my custom textures and add more variety
with the game textures.

I knew about the often used material needed someone to slap me with it.
Already on it. Found some painted concrete gametextures.

I just got aware about a gameplay issue. It seems both teams can pick up the flag...

Make sure they are team specific and they are set up through mission editor one for each team. One of the umm maps in the compition had that set up.
