    Cedarfall Mills
    by Philip M

    Gametype: Attack/Defend CP (Dustbowl-style)
    Recommended # of Players: 12-24
    Size: Small
    Theme: Stormy Alpine
    First Alpha Release: 27/8/2009


    Cedarfall Mills is an attack/defend map which will take place in a fairly compact farming town with vast fields of crops looking outwards. The battle starts off fairly enclosed with distinct choices of spawn-exits and slowly widens out into more diverse paths.

    Any feedback here to my email is more than welcome!

    I've really enjoyed playing on this map, very clean. Fix the line of sights a little (Snipers would be king in 12v12) and we're looking at a fun, expansive map.

    Yay, a thread for cp phil! :D

    The map is pretty fun, I played the a1 with a few people and I liked it so far. :)

    Can't wait for stage 2. :D

    Cheers for the feedback guys, I'll be sure to block those sniper sightlines in Alpha 3.

    Cool a thread at last.

    Remember to raise cap times and I think there are too many buildings and routes in general.

    I regret not being able to stay to test this map, but I had to leave after moonballs for a 6v6 team meeting, I haven't played too many good attack/defend-style maps (cp_boulder comes to mind, but that's about it.)

    Not that I've tested it or anything, but 3 seconds seems a bit short for a cap time doesn't it?

    As for names, and with a general lack of knowledge about good map names. how about :

    cp_snowcap
    cp_crustbowl
    cp_filter (???)
    cp_fracture (???)

    @ DJive: I think I know which signs you're talking about because I think I've came across the same problem that you have - I'll be sure to playerclip the signs.

    @ Zwiffle: The last Cap Point's time is 3 seconds simply because I had the idea that the area around it would be heavily guarded with a larger number of players. Personally I think it's fine.
    Also, I might consider something along the lines of cp_fracture. :)

    IMO, it needs more grey. :p

    Looks good though!

    Actually, most of this grey will turn in to brown wood :)
    Sorry to disappoint :p


    Well on another note, I might start on the second Stage if this gameday's playtest turns out to play well.

    Yeah, it is going to be Alpine. I'll add it to the first post to prevent any more confusion.

    Update: I've decided on a nice new name for the map: Cedarfall Mills.
    I will update the first post's graphics sometime tomorrow.

    May I ask how you decided on this name? Just wondering because names are tough for me in general.

    I just tried to find some nice words which sounded catchy together.
