    Waste (PL) - Release 2.0
    by Eric "Icarus" Wong
    Email: ericgfwong@hotmail.com
    Download from FPSBanana
    Download from TF2Maps

    **Waste is currently part of the (^) Custom Rotation 208.115.116.51:27016**

    5CP Tug-o-War Payload
    Waste is a new gametype in which the payload can be pushed by either team. It plays similarly to other 5-point Control Point maps, such as Well, except that it places a stronger emphasis on teamwork to push the cart and coordination to flank the enemy. These alternate routes, although longer, usually provide health and ammo pickups not normally present on the main payload track.

    Objective:
    Escort the payload to the enemy base. Stand near the payload to make it move.

    Other Notes:
    Both teams can push the cart. The cart cannot be pushed while locked.

    Icarus, I'm going crazy due to the number of waste products you're making (haha, pun). Go ahead with ctf dude, you have so many game versions of the map that it won't hurt XD

    Normally I'd say you're miliking the cash cow, but this milk so pure gold so keep it coming!

    fyi I do this out of my own personal enjoyment, so I couldn't care less if I was 'milking' it or not.

    Regardless, the map is still awesome :D

    Hey Icarus, here are the screenshots with comments - note that these are from B3.

    [​IMG]
    What about adding a light there, to clear things up a bit? and let's take a closer look to what the red things are ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    weird formation of your fences, and a weird colour as well..

    [​IMG]
    Maybe move the poster down? And the rack prop is floating (from this angle though) and your point_spotlights are to wide (you did this on a few more places).

    [​IMG]
    Aargh?! Place a light source there please.

    [​IMG]
    I think you used the wrong texture for your beams here (you did this on a few more places).

    [​IMG]
    The beam is placed a bit too close to the wall (in the wall).. Once again, your point_spotlights are a tad too wide here.

    [​IMG]
    Okay I think you'll know this already, the light goes through the prop. But, the prop is not placed in the middle of the wall, and I should do something about the height of the textures etc. (this is in cp_waste)
    Ask me if you don't understand what I'm saying here, please!

    So, again, these screens are taken in pl_waste_b3.


    - DBP

    PS: I looove the detailing! :D

    Thanks DBZ, some of your comments very very useful (like the lights). However, some of the details you mentioned were intentional.

    The spread looks pretty weird imo, a lot more Deaths on the red side (1000+ kills) :/

    EDIT: only 7 games? maybe that explains it :p

    Any comments from non-mappers on the cart yet?

    This map is a lot of fun. The lastes version got rated high enough to be in out regular rotation (pending 20 ratings).

    Awesome, thanks!

    On another note, I've decided that I'm going to withhold the final version until Valve lets me use the new hud icons.

    better: go rc, then waste_final, then just waste when they release the icons.
