    A CTF map with a bit of MVM thrown in for a good taste.

    You have a leak, as seen in the second screenshot. Fix it, then run your compile log through this to find any other problems. When that's done, put it up for a test!

    CTF with non robots? That's a new one for me. As to the leak Seba was talking about if you go to map and click on load pointfile hammer will show you what leaks and where via a red line. I don't know how the map will end up but I have to say I am intrigued.

    That's not necessarily a leak. Maybe he intentionally textured the intel room with nodraw.

    It'll be a revolution in map design.

    Updated to a2.

    Changes:
    - Did not even try to fix the HUD.
    - Capture zone is now parented to the tank.
    - Fixed up tank explosions.
    - Fixed the inclined intel problem.
    - Colored flagroom pillars orange.
    - Tanks do not pause now. Instead, they start slow and pick up speed at turns.
    - Expanded the flagroom.

    I'm lost here... you take it from one tank and bring it to the other? The bots seem confused. They keep trying to go to spawn with the flag.

    I do like the idea of a moving flag, but I feel the level needs to be longer for that to happen.

    I feel like the safe room needs to be bigger. Right now it seems to be an H shaped hallway.

    This is a good and creative idea, I just feel its too easy. It is very open and you can easily avoid people if not just flat out kill them, keep running and get the flag before they've even respawned. There will always be an open hallway with nothing in it that will be easy to run down.

    The areas feel so big that they can't be properly covered with sentries. Spies don't feel useful because of this, and not just because of this, but because the action is so wide open and if a spy is covering 1 alternate route there is another alternate route a person could take. Snipers don't feel useful as they could. Demos don't feel useful due to lack of sentry points, but maybe its just the way I'm playing. Scouts.... pyros feel very useful. I'm gone and over everyone's head by the time they notice me. It feels more like a race than actual skill.

    Perhaps this means you should seal off 1 of the 2 alternate routes at each point or tighten up the hallways of the alternate points.

    You could even have 2 tanks start in the middle and go away from their spawn points instead of toward them. Then have the drop point at home base if that's possible. That way people have to go further each minute they play instead of going closer each minute they play.

    After all of this is said, its still a clever idea that you should continue with.

    kinda sucked that the sirens failed. instead of dramatic "oh shit the tank is almost at the hatch" ending we got just an abrupt stop that left people wondering wtf happened
