This is a test big test. The practical two way doors around the map were intended to limit the about of ambushes from other sides, but mostly to slow down spawn campers. The doors funnel players from the other team into the center path only as the right side of the courtyard (the elevated area with the bridge) was the perfect perch to snipers. The courtyard has gone through lots of changes so I like to see if we can do away with the doors entirely.

  • Removed all practical two way doors
  • Added a railing wall to the left shelter room's elevated floor.
  • Added crates to the right shelter room
  • Modified company signs to be the same size with overlays
  • Added mounds of coal at window of center battlements for easy exits (mostly easier for the bots)
  • Modified lighting and textures
  • Added Bullet Block volumes to props that don't have collision
  • Widened stairs
  • Fixed Cap point prop
  • "Added an extension" to spawn house, players now spawn further into the house at an angle that shows both exits.
  • Changed particle one-way doors to have one trigger volume that closes the door when walking far enough away, and two that open the door.
  • Changed overlays to reflect the trigger volume location.
  • Changed second red wooden texture to brick texture.
  • Raised fence around spawn courtyard
