    Pretty interesting. After trying it out, I noticed one major issue. The capture rate on A is shorter than on B, and both capture way too fast (though that may be for debugging purposes).

    Also:
    The middle supports for the bridge are floating.
    I'm not getting a coal mine feel with the map.
    A neat gimmick could be that the train leaves when A is captured, and B is locked until the train leaves completely (maybe 20-30 seconds).

    Also Also:
    Which water texture did you use?

    Can I just say that the outside area on this map is really pretty?

    I have no idea why it's this map in particular, maybe something to do with the lighting... but that area in front of point A, with the river and waterfall and big open building just looks great.

    • Remade blu spawn (now with 60% less sightlines)
    • Changed cliff balcony near A into a tower with an upper area and a lower passageway
    • Increased the width of the station room and added a staircase up to the new tower
    • Increased the width of the room between the station and cave and added a lower entrance into the cave
    • Added a medium health pack to the left flank room
    • Players standing near the waterfall will now be pushed slowly toward the edge
    • Fixed an exploit that allowed engineers to build inside of red spawn

    I agree with dryerlint, the outdoor area looks really great. Nice work.

    - Increased cap time to 20 sec and 6 sec (from 5 sec and 3 sec)
    - Removed clip brushes on top of the bridge at A
    - Expanded the room between the train and the cave (now calling this the console room)
    - Added a raised platform extending out from the console room's left exit to help Blu push out into the cave
    - Platform includes medium healthpack and ammopack
    - Red can access this platform via a new room near the spawn exit on their right​
    - Expanded the cave and moved point B back
    - Added a small bit of space behind the point
    - Opened up the building housing Red's left spawn exit into a raised platform for defense​
    - Added more areaportals because optimization was bad
