This is my first full size map for a build-engine game. What do you think? Criticism is requested. (Don't be too harsh...)

Oh and my rating was a 3.5/5 for a begginer. I would have done 4 until I got stuck :(

But you're on the right path! Keep em coming!

You mentioned before the under water spot with the cracked wall; I had remote detonators to blow it up,

I had already used my remote detonator earlier not knowing I would need it then

How the map is now it indeed seems as if the TNT are meant as 'presents' for the zombos.
A good way of solving this problem is for the player to emerge from the water near the cracked wall inside a tiny cave where there is some TNT that can be tossed into the water.

For a very first map it's done very well.
There's good shading, secrets, effects, nice natural structures etc. but here and there it's a big cramped.
Stay on this path and you'll become one of the better (and scarce) mappers out there one day.

Yes! Another new mapeditor! Great beginner map! You show knowledge of advanced sector effects and lighting. it definitely has a taste of good atmosphere. I found only 2 problems with sequencing and the other with structure. There was a part in the map where I jumped down the well with only the spider key. I was trapped because I did not have the skull key and the tunnel collapsed so I couldn't make my way back. Also, in the well you have to blow up the wall. Dynamite doesn't work under water so I got stuck there as well. The structure was a bit claustrophobic. I would try making the rooms bigger with freedom of movement. Let the player feel like they can explore rather than being "on rails." I would challenge you to work on level design and gameplay. You have a good start on texturing and sector effects. Can't wait to see your next map!
