CP Hybrid - 3CP and KOTH combine to make this competitive-friendly theme-hybrid map.

Description
Hybrid (cp_hybrid_b1) is the result of a large-scale effort to create a competitive-oriented map with community friendly elements, that has a CP gamemode similar Soldier_engie-demo's ato_mission. The project was headed by Jack5, responsible for map logic, certain custom materials, soundscapes, fixes and publishing, and Docteur Whoa, who created much of the layout and visuals of the map. Soldier_engie-demo also assisted in the map's development during its early stages as an alpha.
Hybrid's gamemode is a combination of Symmetrical Control Points and King of the Hill. Points B (BLU), M (Middle) and R (RED) behave as would be expected from a 3CP map, however a fourth control point (D) is present which awards its owner faster respawn time. A game is won when a team owns all four control points.
The map is currently in beta as the artpass is mostly complete, but there are a few missing features planned before the map exits beta. It is being tested primarily on TF2Maps, Rushy Servers Wacky Maps (with 6v6 bots) and Rushy Servers Zombie Survival (to gauge the community-friendly nature of the map).

It looks pretty clean in a lot of places, but theres a bit of prop spam at the middle. Lots of random crates. Maybe replace some of the crates with brush work?
Otherwise, good job!

Is that elevator a custom asset?
If so, is it publicly available?

You will need to speak to Docteur Whoa about that. He is the one that used the asset.

Apparently it's from a CS:GO asset pack.

@TyeZenneth Well the elevator model is part of the Precipice pack available in the download section, along with some furnitures and other props.

@MegapiemanPHD May I know what prop spam are you talking about ?

Why'd you make a page on the tf2 wiki for this? lol. cp_shelter and cp_desertfortress have the same split mid, don't know why you're presenting this gametype like it's the second coming

I made the wiki page a while after the map had been out and had already seen some use on specific prominent servers. As for other maps having the same split, nobody has bothered to add those maps to the wiki either, and Hybrid has a couple of other features that make it stand out from just having a similar control point layout.
