    Yes, it's the old favourite arena_donald and the not-so-old-nor-favourite pl_jeanette. Two maps I've grown to dislike over the months.

    They're both open for anyone to modify, adapt and do something else so I have a third verb to include in this sentence, although I'm warning you that they both have some rookie-ass mapping mistakes in them (plus Donald has a lot of detail in it so have fun).

    Anyway, here you go:
    arena_donald_b4a.vmf
    [​IMG]

    pl_jeanette_a6.vmf
    [​IMG]

    the instances used in pl_jeanette - you may need to stick them in a folder called "instances" (or change the func_instance target, whatever) in order for them to work

    I would also have included the VMF for cp_sally but I lost all the files for her it in a hard drive crash a couple of months ago. Oh well.

    Anyway, if you need some ideas to get you started, I will say that since pl_jeanette has only two capture points and lacks a climactic explosion at the end, you could perhaps consider adding another stage! I have no ideas for arena_donald though. Sorry.

    Oh, and if you decide to turn either of these into a map of your own, feel free to credit me. I won't send hired thugs after you if you don't, though.

    Dang these maps were both really fun. I might consider picking up Jeanette. It used to be a full single staged map, right?

    Updated OP with the rest of the instances used in pl_jeanette... I forgot there was more than one.

    Also, no need to put dibs on each map, they're open for everyone!

    Yeah, if anyone wants to use pl_jeanette in any way, feel free to do so.

    Other than that, DON'T TOUCH MY BABY!

    OH WOAH WOAH WOAH! You gave up on donald? Why would you do that? The map was a lot of fun, it was easily going somewhere, you showed you had the skills to complete it! Why did you give up?

    I just don't like it anymore. I'm sick of working on it, it reeks of my old mapping skills and there's a lot of newbie mistakes in it. Also I had no idea on where to go with it, yet I felt it wasn't polished enough for a release candidate.

    Ultimately, I figured it'd be better to let other people have at it than to let it gather dust in my hard drive for all eternity (or at least until the hard drive crashes... again).

    Hey, just a small update for pl_jeanette:

    I'm plan to release the map under the name "pl_dewfall". At the moment, I'm adding another stage to the map, previous to the original. Other changes I'm implementing include some displacement fixes, a small river at the bottom of the death pit, the addition of another exit from Red's final spawn, and some other asthetic changes. Thanks again, Ms. Mudpie!
