    This is an admittedly flat map in a rather autumny theme.
    The gamemode is nonstandard but simple -- Bring the enemy flag to your flag, wherever it may be. The flag resets on capture or after 60 seconds.

    The layout isn't finished, but you're detailing areas? Something is seriously wrong here.

    Not really, I develop the theme before I make the layout. I just happened to develop it at the center area of my contest map :)

    I detail areas as I finish them, too. Only way to stay inspired to keep working on the map sometimes. As long as you're using grouping and visgroups as you go along, changing an area/section after it's detailed is rarely a big hassle.

    Looks pretty nice so far, btw. :)

    I don't know, it just makes me uneasy. I hope everything fits together alright.

    Looks sexy. I was thinking how an Autumn theme would look. Make sure you have falling orange leaves, to make it extra awesome.

    It strikes me as too close to real for TF2... I'm not sure why. Might be the lighting tones.

    ...the trees. I bet it's those ugly trees.

    Were it not for the leaves painted on the displacements I would say that it looks similar to HL2's airboat section, meaning that it's a little too realistic (like Booj. said).

    HL2 trees look awful regardless of what game they're used in. Get rid of them! D:

    The HL2 trees are placeholders! I've ordered proper tree models for this :)

    Good man but anyway, regardless of the trees, it looks quite spiffing. ;)
