It's been over two years since I've last worked on this map so I've forgotten about what works and what doesn't. This is just a little update to fix some glaring issues and bring it up to speed.
  • Removed the majority of the detailing and signs, out of place for an alpha.
  • Removed all custom assets, these were cool but unneeded in alpha.
  • Minor geometry changes and fixed the huge sightlines on the point (oops).
  • Map is now daytime again, skybox was cool but lighting everything up was a pain.
  • Redid all the lights to make them better on the eyes.
  • Probably some other stuff I forgot.

It turns out that cubemaps caused compile pal to compile without packing, repacking or the navmesh. Because of this the map was broken since the skybox and some props were not included with the map. I have been unable to figure out why cubemaps break Compile Pal, so the map is now using default cubemaps instead. So reflections and such will not be as accurate until I figure out the issue.
This version has some big changes, since A6 played very nicely I'm doing some experimental layout changes, If it doesn't play well I can just fall back to A6. The main focus of this release is to make the underground area less overpowered, and to give the attackers more ways to attack the point so that retakes are easier.

-Changed the skybox from badlands to sky_twilight_01 by Void (Lighting settings have also been changed to reflect this)
