    Just a map I made.

    yes, I like hendrix.

    ill post a download link later.

    It deals with most of the issues I have with KOTH, over powered pyros/snipers, one route to point...stuff like that

    A few classes (scout,soldier,demoman) can make it from their spawns to the next floors, so this helps cut down on spawn camping.

    1) Please don't release straight to beta, it will only cause problems ;)

    2) The map is TINY

    3) I think this will turn into a massive spam/campfest with engies, soldiers, demos, and pyros.

    I released straight to beta because I played it with a few friends and it played fine.
    I personally don't think it will be a "Campfest" but it might

    It is quite tiny, but I like it that way.

    I'd say it be more of a map for a server with very few people. Almost like a team deathmatch thing. However, I'd just play it because of the name. Is there a ctf_pruple_haze out there somewhere?

    Expansion

    So I sat down and thought about it, and it hit me. I'm going to expand this from a KOTH to a 3 CP map.

    Center is the gray point...all capture point...yah know what I mean :)

    The two watch towers (ill just copy and paste one and change all the skins) will be the other two cp's. I feel this will solve the problem people have with the size and give me time to build on my hammer skills as a whole.

    Wrong on both accounts.

    All along the Watchtower (granted it is cover of Bob Dylan):

    Their is already a community map called arena_watchtower. Might want to pick a different shorter name.

    Good luck

    Damn gamemaster... come on....

    In other news, I'm glad to hear you had internal testing, you may still want to consider public testing, and if it is not going to experience a lot of detail changes, this map could use a 3d skybox as well as much more detailing.
