    BoonDoggle - Like Alloy but Worse

    Boondoggle, it's like Alloy but worse.

    Boondoggle uses the gravelpit/steel type gamemode mix Yrr made for Alloy. Capture point A OR B to unlock C. Capping 1 of the points lowers C while capping both points extends a bridge to C.

    I fear this map may be underscaled. Whenever I feel that way about a map, it usually ends up being overscaled so who knows.

    This is the first time I've used Compilepal for a map so I have no idea if it worked correctly. It seems to have worked as intended but I honestly don't know.

    Also there was another map called Boondoggle but it was payload instead of Capture Point. It also hasn't seen an update since around '08 and doesn't seem to have a download available. Due to that I felt it was safe to use the name.

    Boondoggle is a pretty good name, I'll give you that, but "Hornswoggle" or "Smeckledorf" would fit better.

    The basic layout is biased off of gravelpit. You aren't really meant to go back into blu spawn.

    -fixed C so it can actually be captured. Why did no one ever think of this before? That's crazy!
    -minor detailing and lighting and other things cause I'm running out of time for the asym 2 contest and I won't get this map done in time cause I've never finished a map and I doubt that will ever change.
    -figured out how to make cubemaps for LDR and HDR

    The map has plenty of errors and missing textures, It'd be a pain to point them all out.
    Another thing, all stairs, no matter how small, should be accompanied by a blockbullets ramp of the same size (yes ramp, not stairs) This is to prevent errors with shooting explosive weapons at them and jumping while on them. I noticed that not a single set of stairs has this, and I definitely recommend it.

    This is all untrue. I packed the map when I compiled it using compilepal and every set of stairs has a bulletblock2 on it. Every, single, one.
