I am finally going to finish up the alpha and if the gameplay works out well I will update it with a fully detailed version within the next week or two.

I have removed the alpine stuff because I want to change the theme to something else.

Reduced cap time to what I think will increase the intensity of the game.
Reduced cover in mid.
Moved the rock in mid to get rid of the cubby.
Removed all alpine clutter outside the playable space.
Did a bit of detail work on the right hut because it lacked any personality or really anything.
Changed locations of health and ammo minorly.
Did a bit of brushwork to help transforming it into beta.

I wanted to make it easier to capture the point when it is lost and to buff the other areas.

Added an overlay under all health packs to make it easier to know where they are.
Added barbed wire to the upper right area to stop people standing on it while allowing players to jump over it.
Widened and opened the 2nd courtyard.
Added a window to the left building to look onto the point.
Added more cover on the entrance of the left building.
Added a nook area on the bottom side of the control point.
fixed a pixelwalk on the side of the logs on the control point.
Removed small health pack on the right highground area.
Raised the control point 20 hu.
Raised the right highground area by 32 hu.
Changed the displacement on the right to go up more.

I'm very sorry for the complete trainwreck that was a8 and a8b.
I have rolled back all changes in that version, reverted back to a7 and started working on it again.

Rolled back all changes from a8 and a8b.
ACTUALLY added cubemaps.
Changed lighting to what koth_viaduct has, with reduced fog.
Added more cover in specific places.
Changed the width of the highground over the point.
Added several lighting related commands in the compile script.
Reduced height on the right area above the point.
Fixed a few texture errors and prop bugs.
Shifted rock in middle to cover a sniper angle better.
Changed health pack locations, I actually thought about it this time.
Overall optimized the map for highlander and pubs better.

Thanks for the amazing feedback so far, I never thought this map would be where it is atm.
Here are some screenshots.

Changed health locations all across the map.
Added more cover to right sniper angle.
Redid middle cover.
Added roof trim on the middle exit to mid.
Improved lighting in a lot of spots.
Shifted connector slightly more forward.
More optimization.
Added a rock on the right cliff area.
Slightly tweaked the ramp area next to the lower entrance to middle.
Nerfed sniper angles in mid by shifting the fence on the highground spot.
Changed some doorway sizes.

I had some technical errors which is why the update got delayed until today.

Thanks for the feedback.
This is the biggest update yet, and i cannot give a full change log.
So I will just say the biggest points.

I have completely redone the area in front of spawn to discourage spawn camping and decrease the crazy sniper sight lines.
Along with that I have redone mid and lowered the right high ground and removed most of the barrier between that and the other area.
I fixed a bunch of clipping and displacement bugs and removed the tree house in mid.
The lighting is no longer shrek green and is now slightly off white.
Changed the upstairs door's size to large.

These are the biggest changes and to see the finer details I would recommend just downloading it and seeing it for yourself.

Here are some screenshots.
I know about the texture errors in the screenshots and I have fixed them.
