Pretty much this. Honestly, the Nostromo was the best map featured on this server. It was full of places for aliens to hide in, it was cramped, and it had that sense of isolation and claustrophobia that no other map has really been able to replicate. Unsurprisingly, that's largely because the map was built to accomodate SS13's different gamemodes, which thrive off the paranoia that that type of environment creates.

I haven't seen the redeveloped Prison Station, but if it's anything like the Nostromo, it'll likely become my favourite map. I don't mean to disparage the efforts of the mappers, but if they want an authentic Aliens experience, they have to watch the movies, they have to play Alien: Isolation, and they have to replicate those types of environments. Big, wide open spaces isn't conductive to that sort of atmosphere at all.
I think the maps are alright, but to recreate that Nostromo feel they need more clutter. All that wide open space is just a little soulless now.

I also feel like I need to reverse some of my opinions on Big Red, since they brightened up the previously depressing color palette. I've also been seeing more marine wins. Good stuff, I like playing there now.
I play as this guy, proudly being dismembered by extraterrestrials since 2015.
Sometimes I might play other guys, you never know.

Prison station is small, not as small as base SS13 but it has small, claustrophobic rooms with long thin corridors and some cell blocks, so there's not much movements space anywhere but the LZs. I fuckin' loved it, looking for the last alien was geniunely tense.

Well, I guess Big Red wins (as I expected) and Ice is the most hated map (as I expected too).

WO doesn't really counts since it's a gamemode itself not a map.

Everyone forgot the Halloween map? It was super spooky, especially the revived chest bursted marines.
