    Cathedral - God, please forgive this and the crimes here...

    This is my first OFFICIAL map, meaning that this is my first map I have made open to the public.

    Koth Cathedral takes place in an abandoned cathedral based off of the map Cathedral from Blitz Brigade. Please note that all egypt assets are only temporary and are used for a sunset effect until I can get a proper skybox and assets are found and updated.

    I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK:

    Please give me any information for my map to become better than it is now by color coding your suggestions

    RED: REMOVE
    BLUE: ADD
    ORANGE: MOVE
    GREEN: FIX

    The mid of map is closer to RED side. If you're making a symmetrical map with symmetrical gamemode (which are mostly depend each on other), ALWAYS make it COMPLETELY symmetrical.

    Noticing a serious lack of lighting there. Er, add some proper lighting so your map doesn't have that ugly flat lighting it's currently got.

    Thanks guys for the feedback! A2 will be released either later today or tomorrow, but it will contain alot of fixes, and I do want to ask about any improvements to the layout I should make?

    Honestly there's not much to say about the layout other than it's flat, boring, and full of ridiculous sightlines.

    Look at how your favourite gameplay areas on official maps are structured and see what elements from those you can apply to your map.

    Problem is that the last time I checked, only 1 person downloaded my map, and besides people telling me to fix symmetry and lighting no one has given me any suggestions about things like buildings to break the insane sightlines...

    Some of it has to come from your own judgement. However you can submit the map to a gameday. Or add it through Vbot in the steam group chat and get it played on an imp.

    You have to learn this yourself. People can give suggestions, but there are literally infinite possibilities, and you can get ideas from official maps. Just try something and throw it in an imp, and soon enough you'll learn what works and what doesn't

    The best feedback comes from playtesting. With humans, not bots.

    The map seems nice at the moment, but it feels Underscaled, what i would suggest is Adding more space and routes that give interesting playstyle to the map. And thanks.

    Was thinking about adding some catacombs under the Cathedral, since it is based off of a Roman/ European cathedral...

    Next version will come out tomorrow due to me taking a car trip with family today...

    In this update I have added the following:

    + New Skybox/lighting
    + Broke some but not all sightlines
    + Added two new parts to the cathedral in order to break sightlines and to give other classes access to the top areas of the building
    + recreated map with symmetrical geometry
    + Two new buildings have been added containing health and ammo
    + Added a spectator camera (just learning about these)

    Screenshots are coming soon and the map will be retextured for gameday.

    Read the rest of this update entry...
