    Capture the middle points to unlock your opponents last. Capture that to win. Think of it as Symmetrical Gravelpit.

    Thanks to VelvetFistIronGlove for the amazing skybox.

    I don't think the skybox does fit the TF2 style. I'm judging this from the screen-shots.

    The ceilings of both the final cp rooms are quite low.

    This map's main idea is pretty good and worth working on but:

    The 2nd points should not be symmetrical. Approaching them from either blu or red is the same experience and makes the map less interesting.

    Make the map much much smaller and simpler, with the amount of open cap zones, back caps are really common and having to spend so much time moving to get between them when you're being pulled in all directions is a pain.

    Yeah it may be a good idea to look at Ravidge's 72h KOTH that also had 2 "mid" points

    That said I think it works there because it's KOTH, I think in a CP map having two mids will just lead to teams capping one first without approaching the other and then the usually exciting midfight would happen... inbetween? It doesn't work out currently

    Also even if you want to make a night map don't have super sparse lighting all over the map, gameplay area is way too dark right now

    Splitcap had symmetrical midpoints and I really enjoyed that.
