    Tiny problem with the download, don't know if it's been addressed yet: the VMT file included is for menu_photos and not menu_thumb. It's not a horribly big deal because no one seems to use the quick list but me, and I know how to fix it myself, ha ha. But you know.

    Haven't tried B3 yet but it looks to have fixed the flaws with this map--it was always really fun up until the last point. Glad to see such a beautiful-looking map get fine-tuning.

    Played this last night and FPS was AWFUL! In b2 there was some minor FPS issues looking down/up the curvy hill area, that is gone is this version. However, the 1st part of the map was getting hit HARD with FPS issues. I am constantly over 100 and it was at a steady 20-25 the whole first part until you reached the hill. Besides that, it played very well and was well received. Def be doing it again but might play b2 b/c of the new FPS issues :\

    hm, i had to change some distance-disappearing brushes for the sake of the quickfix, so those might hit the fps, but there weren´t as many, that they severly influence the fps. i will reevaluate the details for b4/rc

    Hey eerieone, I am an amatuer mapper & admin @ Festers Place 32 player instaspawn server. We run your map on rotation(currently b2 Need updating to b3a). But the map is very popular on our server and very possible (with instaspawn) to win even if quite hard :laugh:(lots of ubers). Overall one of my favourite maps at the moment
    I had a quick run about on b3a on lan, found a few minor issues.
    Black overlapping wood
    [​IMG]
    This hiding spot(addressed above too) like the hiding spot, just needs texture on ND faces
    [​IMG]
    The way the wood joins here looks a little strange
    [​IMG]
    Grass poking through the wooden floor(intentional?)
    [​IMG]
    Why block the small gap up here?
    [​IMG]
    As in B2 (The small gap allowed me to demo the sentry farm on the far platform and keep my team moving)
    [​IMG]

    Love the map! Keep up the good work!
    I will report back here when we've played a few rounds of b3a with 32 players.

    thx for the screenies
    °1 hm, we´ll what i can do about that
    °2 forgot to playerclip the area, but since you like it, ´ll texture it
    °3 yeah, saw that too, tried to align it with the other texture, but i wont, i´ll place a small dark wood inbetween those 2 brushes
    °4 whoopsy, got some of those left, no, it´s not intentional :)
    °5&6 I closed the gap because it was way to easy to capture CP3, now the area is worth a fight, Blu still has a major advantage with the overhanging balcony which is perfect for sentries and building ubers to attack CP3 defenses

    Since you didn't answered him, I wonder if you saw ch1lly's post on steampowered forums. He has listed a few glitches he saw on the map.


    The flythroughs are absolutely... :wow:

    B3a is a huge improvement, great work! The only thing that bothers me is that people seem to be getting stuck in the cart more often since this version, especially when it's pushed when an enemy is in front. I'm not sure what's up with that.

    Echoing this. It's not so bad a Pyro, but it can be awful if you're a Demo.

    It's a bit hard to tell in the first picture, but you can see the door opening through the grate floor, so you know when to detonate. Even if you cant sticky the door, stickying the floor under the hole from below is still really really strong.

    Also, I managed to get stuck in the terrain here.

    Very nice map so far. Keep it up.

    About camping with the stickies, personally I think that's fine, it's nice spot for a demo, and if people realize the spot, it's not that hard to counter. First few times you get owned, but then people remember and counter it. Keep, it's a cool ace up the demo's sleeve.

    The demo is already the most powerful class in the game, I doubt it needs any extra aces.

    Once you learn the map it's not that bad. I had no trouble countering it. And it's not an ace, it's a just a cool trick. Just like neat scout jumping spots.

    checkers on displacements

    i don´t really know what might cause this, it´s the gravel-texture from gravelpit
    but for some reason it has checkers on it
    is it because i´m in the alpine environment?

    in the first 2, i made a custom .vmt that makes alpine ground/sand blend into gravel

    The blendmask or bumpmap doesn't exist. I think.

    Yeah, I had the same error, long ago...
    [​IMG]

    Funky, no?
    I was able to get rid of them, but afterwards, the texture didn't have bumpmaps anymore.. No checkers, no shadows.
