    Hi, this is my first time at TF2maps.net so I hope Ive posted everything right ^^

    This is the first map I´ve completed so far (Its still open for changes and not 100% completed) but I hope it still works well :3
    When I make maps I want to bring something new to the gameplay, not just another cp or pl map. So in this case I´ve experimented a little with the capture order =).
    The map is basicly a high tower, situated in a small forest looking area, with four floors. At each floor there is a controllpoint. First either team capture the TOP controllpoint then they work their way down the tower and the first team to cap the FLOOR-point will win. However, To cap a point you MUST own ALL controllpoints above. This will hopefully give some new twists to the gameplay ^^. Becouse at the same time you are attacking the other team to gain controllpoints, you will have to defend your previous ast the same time. A little bit like PayloadRace but in CP form.

    I have only tested the map 1vs1 over LAN with a friend so I dont know how well the gameplay works but hopfully it will be fun ^^

    I think you should get rid of some of the trees at mid. It just doesn't look right.

    Poll seems pointless, all maps need work in most areas.

    A lot of the props look off. Like in the 3rd screenshot, those logs don't look like they're made for TF2. HL2 logs?

    the tower looks a tad small if its going to hold a bunch of CP's. whole thing is a choke point.

    I'd recommend making it less of a straight tower. instead make it have levels that get narrower and narrower. kind of like this Although if you are capping the top point first, that might ruin the pacing, so you might as well just make everything wider.

    also, get rid of some of those trees and add some structures off of the tower. map looks waaay too small.

    Well as you can c ont he first screenshot or if you download the map, it does get narrower and narrower. And the top floor is really accessible so I dotn think taht will ruin it.

    I have always wanted to make a map like this.

    Just from what I can see in the first few screenshots: I would suggest against using the FIT texture option too much, as your bricks are around 2 feet long.

    Well, a small spwan is a cozy spawn :3 And with dynamite crates you can always boom your self up if you lose! :D

    Jk, I think I will make it bigger ^^

    The props are grouped together (Both HL2 and TF2). Meaning, all the props used in HL2 are included with TF2 for whatever reason. You may have used a HL2 prop by accident.

    It says next to the prop name whether it's from tf2 or hl2. Also, I would suggest completely locking off all upper levels, catwalks, and passages to catwalks or any passages in general if the point on the corresponding level is not held. This should help to prevent an engy getting up a sentry farm.

    Could be fun though, only tests will tell.

    terrible screenshots, be sure to type cl_drawhud 0 in console before taking screenshots to disable hud, and up the settings on comp while taking shots, even if it lags, it doest matter you want good quality for screens

    but the map itself looks alright
