    How is the process of making a 5cp map?
    Do you create just the mid and then create one side till the last point and after that just mirror it? I do not understand how this is done, just Copy+Paste seems unprofessional and not so symmetric. :confused:

    Copy+paste is the traditional method. What's unprofessional about it? It's effective because perfect symmetry is important in 5CP. Then all you have to do is go back through and adjust the detailing to suit whichever team owns that half.

    It can also be done with instances but there are some limitations with going that route. Generally you'll only use instances for the alpha phase as you're testing layout, and once you finish that you collapse the instances and clean up the detailing.
