    This is my entry for the 2fort2furious Iron Mapper contest.

    The total time spent on making this map is around 8 hours.

    Be sure to check out [ame=http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=10499]Mangy's entry[/ame] as well!

    Looks like fall. It's nice and cold looking without any warm colors to contradict it like Harvest's skybox. Seems like its as chilly as it can be without having frost on the grass.

    I'm probably going to make it look colder later on, maybe add rain as well

    Saw this in the making during the first part of the IM event, both entries looked amazing and I really love how this one turned out. I thought it appeared quite warm overall, with the exception of the fog, I'm not entirely sure what you were aiming for in terms of warmth but you certainly accomplished an Autumn look.

    Great work, I look forward to playing this!

    feels fresh and the setting and atmosphere fits very very well
    good overall impression, though i don´t like the ramps that lead to the roofs, seems strange

    I don't like them either!
    They were made of boards leaning onto the roof before, but I accidentally deleted them along with a few other things when I selected a grouped bridge. I didn't notice it after a while, so I couldn't undo to get back there. By the time that I noticed it, time was running out, so I just selected the nearest ramp and copied it there :)

    The red/blu along the ramps looks awkward, and even with those it's still too hard to tell which side belongs to which team

    Thanks, you made me feel so noobish again when I cant create awesome maps in 8 hours, or even in 8 weeks :/

    I like the theme alot. Sawmill is a bit too dark for my liking, and Harvest is too orange, but this is awesome, just like autumn should look like :thumbup:

    Only thing that looks odd is the ramps and the colored wood on the platforms

    I've planned to add more stuff which will help players see the difference between the two sides

    Don't make it rain. It'll ruin the appeal. I like it how it is. For me, I find the colours used on the wood paths showing the teams looks cool - it's not something you see everyday, but it looks nice.

    I don't like the ibeams on the edges of the roofs, I think using just the roof texture looks a lot better - but that's just my personal taste.

    It's going to look great when there are some more external props (judging by the screens)

    I think the ibeams add a nice contrast to the lightly colored wood, which looks a lot better in-game than I thought it would. Good map, but the side ramps look like they might be confusingly clipped.

    Looks like there was a game breaking bug in the map. Blue couldn't get out of their spawn. I recompiled the fixed map and I'm currently uploading it.

    Please don't add rain. I would ruin it like littleedge said above. I like the map, I thought the center building looked really well made. Giant rock is kinda wierd though, but the walkways/bridges look fine.

    Yeah the rock is weird. It was a late addition when there was not much time left :)
