    I'm planning to rebuild this map from the ground up, but keep the design intact. The reason for this is because the brushwork is very, very bad (I have experience with level design, not so much with hammer :glare:)
    Any tips/concerns/comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Things to note:
    -3 CP
    -it's playable (as in all the points can be capped properly)
    -The lighting is really basic and/or terrible
    -the deathpit/concrete walls on the final points aren't steep enough and you can stop on them
    -the doors on the side paths don't work. They're one way, leading from the final points inwards.
    -there's only a tiny bit of detailing, but the basics are all there
    -I'm really only looking for comments about the layout/design, because all the lighting and detailing etc is unfinished.

    Also:
    This is my first map on here, so if there's some breech of etiquette/rules, don't hesitate to let me know.

    Your download link actually contains a .vmf file, which is what you view / edit in Hammer. For us to play your map you need to give us the .bsp file. It's always much nicer to take screenshots from ingame. a tutorial is here for that. Also it's not really needed but using Dropbox for uploading screenshots / maps is always good. it's much faster. :>

    Looks pretty good on the pics... But i would apreciate some in-game shots :>

    As mr. blob says, you should give us the bsp file, or else, someone can edit your file and claim it theirs! If you dont know how to to make a bsp file, there is a logo that looks like the steam logo to the upper right. It says "run map" and it will compile your map into a bsp. If your pc fails to compile it completely, try to check your compile log for errors here: http://www.interlopers.net/errors/

    You should add enviromental lighting and get it out of full bright. It will make pictures look LOADS nicer.

    If you don't know which skybox/lighting to use. find 2forts lighting set up and skybox texture name and use that.

    Hate to say it, but the lighting in those pictures looks incredibly dark D:

    Hmm, you're right. Maybe I should put my "only pay attention to the layout because everything else is terrible" warning in huge letters on the top of the page.
