    PL_Pit (Feel free to change the name :p)
    [Open]No need to ask for permission.

    I started of with the motivation to complete it but.. yea :(
    I myself am great at logic, but I sorta suck at graphical design.. :s (Ima programmer :)

    So the map exists out of 3 "major" parts:
    The Top level
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The pillars that you see here Break, if they receive enough damage (causing the entire balcony to collapse)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The Ginormous gate goes down when the payload pumbs against it (an alarm goes of).
    When it's fully open, the cart is able to move on.

    A big ass rotating elevator!


    The Hallway

    The Cave
    [​IMG]
    (I love how I can't edit the size of these pics in-forum -_-)
    So What's done?
    • 98% of the payload path is in place and functional
    • Two Blue Spawn Rooms
    • One Red Spawn Room
    • Most (if not all) of the logic
    • No leaks
    • What's there is there without any issues (That I know of)

    What's missing?
    • One red Spawn room (on the Top level)
    • The cave doesn't look like a cave (at all, It's just a box with a rocky texture :p)
    • The top level needs some environmental work (As in, you'll need to find a way to mark the edges)
    • Optimization (e.g: The upper level is boxed into a skybox.., lack of hints)
    • Lightning
    • Details

    Rules
    1. When you (and your team?) are finished with the map (as in "it's complete")
      You have to Post the final bsp file here in this thread (Because I'm curious ;))

    Contact
    If you need me for stuff, You can always drop me a message. :)

    I included the .bsp file, In case you just wanna have a look ↓

    ill take a look at it, but only if I can use an independant thread, and credit you and simply link the thread here instead of posting the download since its the same thing..

    Edit:
    Holy crap I immedietly regret that choice...
    I thought maybe the scale was a little more down to earth, and the pics were just making it seem large, BUT HOLY CRAP THIS MAP IS TOO OVERSCALED! There was no layou, and there is no spawn for red on the first cap...
    Your skybox is a GIANT box that surrounds most of the map, there is little to no optmization, I cant even begin to know how ot fix this...

    I like big maps, the bigger the better :)
    It's a personal Preference
    How is there no layout? :eek:
    I clearly laid out the path the payload should go..?
    Both of which I warned you about in the main post ;)

    Generally people dont enjoy running for a minute to get to the objective, die in 5 seconds then waiting another 15 seconds to repeat the cycle. People also dont usually like taking fall damage from every drop and if an area is overscaled what cover you have in there will be dwarfed by the size of the room (there would stil be big open areas unless you overcramp the room).

    Its definately more fun if a map is correctly scaled. Take a look at valve maps to help you scale correctly if you are struggling.

    Hmm, but isn't that where engineers (tps) come in? :s
    But yea, cover is probably an issue tho..

    But the fall damage, don't think that's an issue, since there's water underneath the elevator.
    But then again, there needs to be another way to get down there once the elevator is at the bottom (since all it would take to block that route is an engy.. and a few snipers :S)
