    RED and BLU fight over the use of a billboard in what appears to be a hole in the ground that obscures the view to said billboard. Advertising is apparently serious business.

    Thanks to Boojum Snark for his libraries.

    You should totally have the billboard change every time it is captured.

    Anyway, there's not much to say with so few screenshots, so I'll shoot in the dark here and say the map looks quite small.

    Yeah, the size is a bit lacking, I must admit. The billboard thing would be sweet, although you can only see it from one side of the map. Only one team would be able to see the changes!

    In that case, move the billboard so it's at the side of the map, rather than in the middle. Both teams should ideally experience the same visuals of a map, so either both teams see the billboard screen, or neither of them do.

    Well, the billboard also plays a key role of blocking up sightlines. That being said, I might just make it a double-sided billboard or something.

    That would be a good idea.

    Although why exactly is the billboard in a large pit in a canyon? You're more likely to find a billboard on Venus.

    The billboard is in a hole in the ground because whoever built it does not know how to advertise properly, whoever paid for the ad on it does not know where the billboard actually is and whoever is fighting over it does not care about getting public attention, they just want to keep the other team from winning.

    Also, early alpha. I'll probably reduce the size of the crater in later versions.
