b5 changelog:

- measures to try and fix, or at least better diagnose, an uncommon and locally-unreproducable bug where players aren't being spooked when picking up the flag
- delayed stun trigger enable by 0.01s, in case some weird asynchronous behaviour was leading to this trigger linking to the player before they get marked as courier
- delayed stun immunity trigger enable by 0.04s to account for this (this trigger forces a flag drop if you escape the stun, eg quickfix uber)
- fixed a small displacement seam on red side of mid
- fixed some outdated ivy props
- fixed some z-fighting
fixed red respawnroom

b4 changelog:

a new tf2 patch has released! within it are several bugfixes we contacted valve about.
this patch fixed:
- heavy being able to crouch and jump while scared with his primary weapon out. this fixes a major exploit with heavy couriers being able to take the top route.
- tf_generic_bomb now has options to pass !activator. this means we no longer need to use func_breakable, so grenades, fire, and other projectiles will now break amphoras.
- the dragon's fury's projectiles now interact properly with tf_generic_bomb.
thanks, eric! :)

a7 changelog:
- removed single-capture win
- significantly improved flag logic
-- fixed extreme flag pickup range in most cases
due to how flags work when 'passing' it to another player, the extreme pickup range still happens on the same tick a flag is dropped.
-- implemented a much better method of acquiring the courier
flagdetectionzone passes !activator, which is by huge measures a much cleaner method than the mess i'd cooked up a year ago.
-- now uses 100% less sweeping triggers!
- added more team colouration around mid and connectors
- reduced skeleton health
- revised parts of amphora logic
- fixed water damage triggers not giving damage indicators
- improved outdoor lighting
- added medium ammo to intel room, to aid defending engineers and pushes
- added soundscapes
a6 changelog:

- less skeletons!

- large geo changes to intel room
returning the quickest way out and adding extra space to push, as well as adjusting angles when pushing in, should improve both sides of an intel room fight.
- traversing across the mid high ground requires jumping
couriers will now have to take the low ground, allowing teams more opportunities of running into eachother during flag runs.
- geo changes to spawn lobby
no more cheeky teleporter spots and some extra visibility out of the spawn building
- amphoras now take activator team into consideration
shooting positive amphoras (health, minicrits, cloak) affects everyone. shooting negative ones (jarate, fire, blast) affects you and the enemy team. no more accidentally immolating friendly scouts.
- added bespoke amphora appear particle
a5 changelog

- fixed an asymmetry (oops)
- geo adjustments to connector
- (hopefully) fixed invisible amphoras (for real this time)
- the nearest-to-mid route out of intel now requires a jump, meaning couriers will have to take a longer path before escaping the enemy base
- carrying the intel provides a dispenser-like effect for you and your nearby allies
- updated a few amphora particles
- added amphora spawn particle
- skeletons!
- flag now resets when dropped (not held!) in the water
a4 changelog:

- (hopefully) fixed amphoras sometimes being invisible on respawn
- improved geometry around water
- geo changes around mid, connectors, and lobby
- more cover overall
- landmarking
- significantly reduced water hurt zone damage
- added patches for amphora spawn locations
- enabled halloween mode
- new water. very murky. damage zone indicator should stick out way more against this
