A5 has a bunch of things i wanted added that i didnt have time to do for A4 (had to get it puggable in time).

changes :

fix to BLU mid respawnroom which would not allow/kill players when they tried to change their class

fixed clippings on the stairs at mid

changed some elements on the right side entrance to last (from lobby) which should make it more favourable for defenders

general optimizations to the map (some buggy textures removed, nodraw to the bottom of the map)
Improved on the design of the trains, probably too much.

Several changes to mid, and last, and Small edits to second and its flanks.

Catwalk and entrance near choke removed, instead replaced with a connector on the lower level instead, allowing more maneuvering around mid.
Arches above trains raised higher to prevent scouts from jumping onto them, improved their detail and turned them into train signals
- Removed all benches from mid
- added ladders to the boxes at choke to improve scout ergonomics and adds an easy way to reach the trains from death's corner.

- Removed a fence which blocked a sightline near train room, as it was more hindering than useful. Allows soldiers to bomb easier from there.
- Cheese-esque room (I'm calling toxic) has had its entrance changed to face the spire to make it easier to spot offensive players trying to back cap from there.
- Shipping (room near conveyor belt) mezzanine floor was lowered, and the doorway facing mid moved in favor of it (originally it started at the bottom of the ramp)
- Train room brightened slightly, added a prop detail which makes a hiding spot more noticeable

- shack on the left (from spawn) removed as it added too many gameplay elements which were too far away from the point.
- ramps added to opposite sides of the point, hopefully which will allow attacking teams to more easily pressure either side of last
- brick columns added near main shutter to make main door more conspicuous
- added more props
