    Plr_ Clandestine
    A map made by The Giblets of Jesus
    This map was created for the GameBanana.com TF2 D.U.M.B. mapping contest

    [​IMG]

    A little back story
    A short while ago, Blu corporation realised that sending wave after wave of faithful enlistments at Red was not only non cost effective, but it wasn't working. And so they devised a plan, a plan to end the never ending conflict once and for all, a SUPERWEAPON! After months of planning, a deep underground military base was constructed to create such a weapon away from the watchful eye of the Red corporation. However, during the final hours of construction the Higg's mining corp. Struck a gold mine shaft through part of their base to reveal what they had been fearing, the Red corporation had also been building a superweapon! More specifically, a crudely built wind-turbine with toxic waste strapped to each arm, ready to release tons of toxic waste above the surface of Blu teritory!

    Hastily, each teams rushed to create bombs, laid track and prepared to destroy the opposing team's superweapon...

    Any comments / criticism are always welcome.

    Special thanks to;
    TF2Maps.net - Supplied the construction model pack + game-mode library used in creation.
    Acumen - Made the drill model
    Seba - Made the wind turbine model

    Looks interesting, the but the final point doesn't look to exciting or "final"... no big hill or something.

    Also, you are using custom assets, I would kindly like to request that add a list of those custom assets and their authors in the Main release post.

    I'm partially with Frozen here...add if nothing else a small ramp at the end, just to give the final gameplay a bit more "PUSH THE ()#%(% CART!".

    Ah, I thought I forgot something, credits now added.
    And yes, in the future I'll probably add a little ramp at the end, seems so obvious now that you mention it.

    Also, this was made to a deadline, which is why it's so small and missing things like the cart accelerating well traveling down ramps and such, again, this will most probably be added in the near future.

    I'd like to mention that Badwater doesn't have a ramp.

    Agreed. But it is so refreshing to see a custom PLR map with something other than dev textures. I love the game mode but it hasn't really been heavily supported. Though I can imagine they are quite challenging maps to make. Maybe if I wrote a check out to one of you people you could make me a nice one :p

    Your displacements look really spikey and jagged.

    I think he means most of them...

    Specifically i see some pretty rough displacements behind the laser in Screenshot 1 and also some in Screenshot 3.

    The first screenshot is notable for them ,but i reckon all the displacements need a bit of smoothing.

    Also: the second screenshot: how is that sand sticking to the ceiling? just use a rock texture.
