    Backflow [Alpha] [Invite]

    My last publicly released map. Backflow (named Black Gold until a4 or a5, I think) is a 4CP A/D map loosely themed around some sort of oil digging business. I'd gotten to the point in development where the layout was more or less finished, but it needed severe balancing, which is why I gave up. I expect the person who takes this on, to at least try and make the map more playable. If this means scrapping entire sections, so be it - this is pretty much your map after I give it to you. I hope you can also detail it, but you're free to do whatever you wish with that (including scrapping the whole oil theme). You are also free to rename the map.

    More information and pictures can be found here: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=12335

    The Swamp Pack is required for this map, although I think all the materials I used are now in TF2.

    Crediting: Just mention my name.

    This is an invite-only project, but mainly because I only want people I "know" to work on this. That basically covers most chat regulars. There is no particular skill requirement, but you should know enough that you can make an attempt at balancing, optimizing and detailing.

    If you want to pick up Backflow, just ask and I'll send you the vmf.

    As long as it's stock Swamp, it should be all in the GCFs, unless they've broken it again since 2010.

    I dunno, was it maybe the sounds? I don't think the map has any of those things, at any rate. The sky is just standard alpine.

    Sounds? We had sounds in swamp?

    Oh wait, unless it's soundscapes, but lord knows what Valve missed out. Most of it's there, though.

    I thought there were custom sounds too, but I might be wrong.
