    I started working on a map based on the show King of the Hill today, to be in Hank's neighborhood, I started on Hank's house which is shown in the screen shots. I'm still working on the house I know that some sides look bad.

    Feel free to tell me anything you think should be changed or any tips that would be helpful.

    This is my first map.

    Calling your map "King of the hill" is pretty stupid, imagine ctf_capture_the_flag or pl_payload... retarded no?

    I have no idea who this guy you speak of, hank, is... bad choice of map reference??

    I question the wisdom of naming the map itself after the gametype.

    pl_payload
    plr_payload_race
    ctf_capture_the_flag
    etc.

    Might I instead suggest you name it koth_arlen?

    Edit: Youme beat me to it by 1-59 second(s) :p He's referring to a TV show: [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_of_the_Hill]TV show[/ame]. I'm suggesting "Arlen" because that's the town it's set in. (Like "Springfield" for "The Simpsons".)

    Edit2: If you were to flesh this into a real map, I'd suggest you model it after the street/alley that the houses share, using fencing and placing the capture-zone in the center. Side-roads can offer flanking opportunities while each base could be a house in an opposing cul-de-sac. (A house with ludicrous satellite dishes coming out the roof...)

    Ok, this looks unusual. Nothing much to comment on soooo I'll do it at a later date when there's a more updated version.

    Oh, that is a better idea I will do this.

    and I forgot to mention that this is my first map.

    @Octo-pie:
    Are you psychic?
    I was thinking about how cool a map based off of King of the Hill would be last night...
    Also, have Heavy (Bill), Pyro (Boomhauler), Scout (Dale), and Engineer (Hank) drinking in the alley.
    Maybe make custom sounds so that you hear them say "Yep" every couple of seconds.

    koth_propane would be a funnier way to name it.

    And have propane and propane accessories throughout the map.

    I was thinking of that, and if this map ends up well I'm going to try to make the Strickland propane building and area and call it that.

    Do you really not know the show or were you being sarcastic? Considering its going on like 14 years and its pretty popular i thought most people would of heard of it.

    Youme is from Europe, Nark.

    King of the Hill does not air there, like the Simpsons, Family Guy and Futurama do.

    so you know all the european tv stations? because I saw it on TV a lot, it was even dubbed in german! (not that Id like that)

    about the map, theres nothing I can say about it, I doubt its going to be an interesting map to play on since you only build a copy of hanks house, but keep going, maybe I'm wrong. For now, change the skybox texture and add a light_environment Sky List (go to Tf2)
