    A Halloween themed Capture The Flag map designed specifically to combat stalemates. This is the first release of the map, and any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Features include:
    - Bell towers that toll when a successful intel capture is made
    - Deadly oozing slime
    - An advantageous balcony perfect for a sniper perch
    - Capture point separate from intel
    - Pumpkins
    - Many alternate routes into and out of bases

    I finished JUST in time for Halloween. I hope people can enjoy it for the holiday season. Thanks in advance to any server owners gracious enough to give it a go.

    The detailing's very nice, and the radioactive sludge is just awesome. However I can't help but shake the feeling that the hallway in the fourth screenshot looks a tad too dark. That might just be me though.

    Looks like an awesome map!There are 1-2 places where lighting could be a bit brighter, but that's minor complaining on my part. Also, is it just me or does it look like coldfront from an above view? (not necessarily a bad thing, just something I noticed).

    Just curious, how long were you working on this?

    I started drawing up concept art around September 26, and I put the project into overdrive the entire month of October. Overall it was about 90~ ish hours of work.

    Also I think you guys are right, I will add a few more lights in those areas no problem.

    But, wait, whats next gameday?

    EDIT: I do see a little similarity to the center of coldfront, but I assure you that's coincidence since I literally never saw coldfront until that comment. I actually haven't played very much of TF2 over this month.

    Nice work - love the lighting - good job. For the 4th slide you need to put a light in the fireplace (flame setting maybe?) They can throw off a lot of light 3200k temp should be good for the fire source.

    Completely disagree.

    Your lighting is pretty bad, to put it honestly. The gameplay area's should be well lit. Whenever I was outside or underground with the green slime, I could not tell who was on what team. You really really need to light EVERYTHING up.

    Impressive, but with all that detail before any testing I feel sorry for you should you have to make any major layout revisions.
