Anyone know of some good Medieval TF2 maps?

    Topic ^

    I made a server that is fully medieval fortress and I've only got cp_redfort_b3. I don't want castle or chaos either, they're too big for my standards. Any ideas for maps? We also want a christmas themed one for our dumb christmas shenanigans.

    Here's the premise:
    1. 8 vs 8
    2. Demos, Snipers, and Heavies only.
    3. Demos can only use the Chargin' Targe and Eyelander/Bottle
    4. Snipers can only use the Huntsman, Jarate/Razorback, and Kukri
    6. Heavies can only use Sandvich, KGB/Fists
    5. Thirdperson mode enabled. It's a little buggy because when you die and respawn, your view is stuck in the body, so just bind a key to thirdperson (in console: bind f thirdperson) and press it when you respawn.
    6. Class limits: 1 heavy, 2 snipers, 6 demos

    It's pretty fun but redfort is getting stale a little (although still extremely fun). Any ideas for medieval themed maps?

    Chaos is too big for what again?

    8 v 8. It's kinda big, to be honest, and there's too much open ground for snipers to shoot with, or maybe I'm confusing it with Impact (Chaos has the hill in the center right?) Plus, I'm looking for attack/defend maps anyways because those tend to have more combat situations.

    Thirdperson? I already like it. I'll try and check your server out later! Additional kudos for not allowing Medic and Pyro.

    Other maps that fit the medieval theme... Harvest maybe? There's some tech in there but the main parts of the map are all wooden and stuff. Honestly, I don't think many people would mind playing maps that aren't perfectly fitting.

    Making maps that fit that plugin would be quite different from usual map-making though. Do you yourself have any plans for a map yet?

    I can't map for shit, I throw my keyboard harder at the wall while I'm using hammer than when I throw the wiimote at the wall when I die in Megaman 9.

    That doesn't mean you don't have any plans regardless =P

    Highwind seems cool. Chaos (the non-hill one) seems good too but it looks quite open. I feel that heavies would be useless while snipers would be too good.
