    Finally I can post this.

    What do two warring teams do when they find a weather-control laser-dish-thing in the alpine wilderness? Fight over it, of course. Who wouldn't want to control the weather?

    I wanted to do something different with the point. It's set in a dish, with a coloured laser corresponding to who owns the point. The climate get's progressively colder the closer you are to the point, as the dish slowly turns the weather in an arid desert to pristine snow.

    I would like to see you attempt a different theme for once; and i mean that in the nicest possible way.

    I was going to do a different theme this time. I really, really was. Even I'm getting sick of alpine.

    Also for some reason that radio dish makes me think someone built the deathstar inside the earth and it's gonna shoot the moon. I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not...

    There. I did something different this time.

    Also, windmill. Wasn't alpine themed.

    I don't think anyone meant several themes in a single map...

    seems to me the ish is more an oasis generating evice than a weather controlling one

    I hope it's canon that the two teams are fighting over a weather control device with a range of about twenty meters.

    Why does it have to be canon?

    I just wanted to try something different.

    If you intend to incorporate multiple themes just beware that you can only have 1 detail sprite active. So depending which detail sprite you assign your map you could have desert grass in your snow blends. This is probably the most annoying thing about source at the moment, being forced to 1 detail sprite per map.

    I've already figured that out. I didn't just slap multiple themes into the one map with no thought like you all seem to think I did.
