I still say the pit resnode should be renamed to "THE PIT OF UNRELENTLESS GORGE PAIN AND SUFFERING res node". I've lost count of how many times i've tried to get in that res node as a gorge...all of which were unsuccessful.
I beleive its impossible. The ladder is fine, but once you jump down, the force of the landing forces you down the slope of the mouth and you fall into the pit of dewm.
Anyways, i never had a single doubt in my mind that this map would become an official map. It had excellent atmosphere, and nice balancing. The hive rooms were very interesting. I felt like just sitting there and admiring them. It was amusing to see Sonic and Esuna try to break the nanogel tank XD.
Of course, the pt games were generally small, and I never saw a real fullfledged serious game on it, but if the pt-general-screwaround games were this fun and cool, thorstation is probably going to be one of my favourite maps once (mark my words, ONCE) it gets included as an official NS Map.
