steelmill b3

A rainy, semi-abandoned facility inspired by sawmill.

Hello everyone, my name's Zan and this is my first mapping project!

Steelmill is a King Of The Hill map inspired from Sawmill. I really liked the rain and the general feel that it had to it and felt like there weren't enough maps like that.
So when i booted up hammer for the first time, following UEAKCrash tutorials to build the very basics elements, i knew what i wanted my first proper map to be like.

Layout wise i tried to follow "the Viaduct formula", while taking influences from other maps that i like playing.

Feedback on both the "artstyle" and the layout/gameplay aspects is much appreciated!
