    Almih - A bisected koth map, featuring a lot of height play

    Almih is a koth map for all classes. With its bisected form, it guarantees your KOTH experience is ruined by snipers no longer. It has a lot of height difference and many flanks, fun for all the Team Fortress 2 family.

    Almih can be played as both a public, HL, or 6s map.

    Almihwarya is romanised arabic for focal point, in case you were interested.

    inspired by lumberyard and a dream I had once a few months back

    I've tried to simplify up a bit, remove some of the feeling of being a rat in a maze. I did try to make it so that it would be easier to get behind than some other koth maps, but according to beaters testers I just went way too far in that, so I've tried to make it less of a shitfest.

    On the cliff side, I've just reduced the amount of useless space. The whole thing thing has been reduced by about 30%, which should make it better for fighting generally, it was a bit too wide for people on opposite sides to engage eachother. I've lowered the dome for ease of use, and I've changed the structure itself to a single opening that's wider. You can run up onto the high ground from the middle now, which is less of a death sentence for people that go down.

    On the tracked side, I removed the rockets as they weren't necessary, and in the iddle, I closed off some of the entrances. I've also changed and added some healthpacks, to help rollouts and help break forward holds.

    I've started doing the textures but I haven't shipped any of this in this version, as I've got some custom stuff that I haven't done yet. Would it be better to texture the bits that I can or leave it in dev textures?
