Cliffside A8

Capture and control a system of caves on the side of a cliff.

  1. Alpha 8: Unnecessary Detailing

    Da Spud Lord
    Did a small bit of unnecessary detailing and retexturing, cuz I was bored and I lost most of the feedback from the IMP. We played A7 on the EU server, but it didn't get saved to the feedback section. In fact, new maps appear to have totally stopped appearing in the feedback section. Is there a bug with feedback?
    -Fixed an improperly flipped light and light prop on Blu's side
    -Made the outdoor wall-mounted light props nonsolid
    -Expanded the balcony space in the second floor of each team's...

  3. Alpha 6

    Da Spud Lord
    -Shifted the one-way gate on each team's side closer to the edge

    -Deleted an unnecessary nodraw brush outside of the map

  4. Alpha 5

    Da Spud Lord

    -Replaced the rock textures with dev textures
    -Added a rock pillar next to the point
    -Further elevated the drop on the flank next to the point to prevent players from spamming onto the point

  5. Alpha 4: Finally ready for testing

    Da Spud Lord
    Okay, NOW I'm finally ready to have the map tested.
    -Added proper lighting in the caves
    -Added light props in the caves
    -Removed a brush outside of the playable space
    -Added arrows directing players where to go
  6. Alpha 3: Brand New Layout

    Da Spud Lord
    So I decided that I didn't like the design of the cave system too much, mainly because it favored a single route to the point and neglected the building on each team's side. So I redesigned the entire cave system from the ground up. I started over from my A1 version and deleted all of the caves, so most of the changes in A2 have ben lost. I'll re-add those things, as well as further refine the map to get it ready for testing, in A4. Unfortunately, this update also brings with it a new bug-...
  7. Alpha 2: Things I should have included in the initial release

    Da Spud Lord
    Just a small update containing a few things I wanted to add before I submitted the map for testing, as well as a couple other improvements.
    -Added arrows directing players where to go
    -Fixed an alignment problem with the battlements fences on Blu's side
    -Marked areas that cannot be reached with nodraw
    -Shrunk the skybox in areas that cannot be reached
    -Replaced the "Invisible" tool textures with "Clip" textures
    -Fixed some overlapping brushes causing overlapping textures
    -Added a cubemap
