    Yea I gotta agree with Youme here. That`s flash all over it.

    Back on topic. It looks good, but I thing you may need something more. Perhaps you could make it a curved trench, imagine it like a horseshoe. Would break the contrast of looking at two bases, but then you could have some tunnels underground connecting the two as well.

    But nevermind it, I'm changing your layout too much already :p

    Hmmn. You could go with the combine theme a bit, where they just shoved their walls and their buildings into the human ones, and all the edges of the human ones are broken.

    Just do that, but have the red/blue base be the combine, and the pre-existing structure be the humans.

    Yes, it's Flash. Yes, it's unconvential. But it works, and I love Flash.

    Here's a better sketch (done with Flash!), to give a better idea of how this'll all work.

    That's a lot more cover. The trench won't be sniper friendly anyway, seeing as right now the battlements give a very limited view.

    EDIT: I wanted to try and avoid doing this, but maybe it's necessary. Do you think I need to add a tunnel going under the map? From the right/top/small/empty tunnel down to the trench, as well as add a ramp and make a building on that side player accessible? That side of the base just seems too empty, and if you think snipers will really be that big of a problem....

    Any new updates?
    As long as the middle is easily-ish passible I shouldn't think you'd need a tunnel going underneath the map.

    Also: need moar flash sketches! (three guesses how I made my avatar)

    photoshop :confused:

    Personally i like the idea of tunnels coming from the "top" and "bottom" of that sketch. (the sides of each trench).

    Nope, no real updates... kind of put it aside while I'm working on an achievement box for practice.... (waits for gimmick slap)

    Arrg, missed game day. Kind of want to do some playtesting for it, just because....

    But, here's a flash sketch that is completely random, for Youme's sake:

    I suppose sarcasm isn't the easiest thing for people to pick up on over the internet, lulz. Bless Youme's innocent essence. :p

    Nah I figured you knew, I just thought putting both the question and the more obvious answer in the same post wasn't the best way to do it
