    Aussieland is an attack/defend map with 3 stages, much like dustbowl.

    -I am still seeking a better name for this map, any suggestions would be great-

    When making this map I was looking for a different feel to each stage.
    Stage 1 is simple, straightforward, set in a goldrush-like mining town.
    Stage 2 is set on a cliffside, with the first point being quite dangerous due to the environmental death. 2-2 is set in a cave.
    Stage 3 is somewhat open, with long sightlines, height differences and a point floating on water.

    Rexy: His awesome rocks + Kangaroo
    The TF2maps chatroom and everyone in it: You support and testing.
    Owl: Your skillful exploit finding.
    Beatz: You're awesome mate.
    Labelmaker: Helpful ideas.
    Some sprays turned overlays from FPSB.

    Looks good, I'll DL and take a look around while Steam decrypts the L4D2 Demo files :p

    Edit: The spawn area was a little dark.
    A good sniper could easily control this exit out of Blu spawn.
    I could rocketjump above this wall. I like the tunel underneath it, although it's a little low.
    I would remove the glass in at least one of these windows, as the point looks like it's pretty well covered from attackers going along the main path.

    Hope this helps :)

    So long as we don't ride kangaroos all over the map, it's good.

    Put up a2 with the second stage. I don't like 2-2 that much but tell me how it works.

    Owl is amazing.

    Also your second CP on this stage, you can cap the CP from behind the boxes. As you can stand on the platform on an approximately 1 unit thick ledge behind the crates. If you get me?

    I'll get a screen if you don't.

    edit:

    P.S. Owl!!!! Anti-aliasing man!!!!!! (You can actually see through the waterfall).

    P.P.S. Owl!!!! 666 posts :O
