    Canale - Heronherald

    This is my entry in the Payload Checklist Contest, blu is pushing an airboat full of explosives through the canals of Venice to stop red from moving a tugboat full of explosives. I just noticed that RED and BLU both own boats full of explosives.

    Here's the checklist

    This is the most interesting map I've ever seen in the contest, and I saw one that combined CTF and PL. This map reminds me of the CS 1.6 vehicle maps. Can't wait to playtest this and see its final product. :)

    I saw the changes to the boat you made, and I love how you used the Asteroid bridge prop as the flooring of the boat. It fits so well with the size of the boat and really makes it pop!

    I think i'm going to change the wooden structure on that building at first into a second floor instead of a hollow structure to make it more visually pleasing. Speaking of which, I think I'm going to make A10 a full-on polish update whilst waiting for beta.

    So... what do you guys think about the current layout and cover placement? I'm thinking of making A10 the last alpha unless if there's a game-breaking sightline or bug. I dunno, maybe it will stay in alpha for a bit longer so I can make the gameplay rock-solid. On the other hand, here are some unrelated screenshots from a10 for some first impressions. 20190123162639_1.jpg 20190122190324_1.jpg 20190122190428_1.jpg

    Death to water!

    This sucked too many hours out of my life

    Let's just get the obvious out of the way, the lighting is different, and the autumn theme is here!


    Made 3rd look fancy, replaced the building next to it with a grass patch
    3rd at another angle The Rialto Bridge in the background A new building after 2nd Cleaned up the flank at B Cleaned up Red's first spawn and changed it immensely Red Spawn from another angle

    Small Changes Include

    -Added another way to get out of Last

    -Shortened many of the walls around the canal

    -Made the water shallower

    -Made the water look deeper

    -Gave red another spawn at first

    -Put a tire on a crate

    -Adjusted height variation

    -Removed some underused flank routes

    -Sprinkled Arrows and signs here and there

    -Added some pumpkins and trees

    -Replaced some clunky buildings with open spaces

    -Opened up tight spaces

    -Removed some unnecessary cover

    -Cleaned up some clutter

    -Removed a high amount of shutter doors

    -Removed all umbrellas... rip

    -Added a neato metal bridge to second

    -Adjusted Clipping

    -Made 2nd easier to ambush for BLU

    -Removed some health and ammo packs

    -It is easier to traverse around the water

    -Adjusted Red's respawn times (from 1 second to 12 seconds)

    -Lightened up some dark spaces

    -Made it more obvious that the door at first is one-way

    -Removed a buoy clipping into a wall

    -Added a dropdown near second

    -Heavy lifting provided at the small gate after second

    Notes

    -After BLU passes the gate at 2nd, a large fence blocks red's fastest way to the gate and must take the slow way around, unless if they are a jumping class

    -The odd lighting on the structure at 3rd is temporary and will be fixed later

    -I am aware of the water not sharing cubemaps, I will fix these later

    -Staring directly into the trees with leaves will drop framerates

    -The boat still clips into some walls, will be fixed soon
