    cp_ada

    Well, my first map turned out too 2fort-ish I guess that kinda just happened with me playing 2fort almost all teh time =/ so I am back with cp_ADA.

    _________________________________________

    Current Release, issues known and things I'm looking for.

    Nowhere near realeased.

    Known Problems?
    None so far.

    Things I'm looking for

    • Gameplay? How does the map flow?
    • Round times/ added cap times? Are these OK, too small? Too large?
    • Class balance? Is one class superbuffed and others left fighting for their lives?
    • Layout? Do I need to add more cover? More rooms? Do I need to make certain things smaller?

    One thing: some servers have trouble with capital letters in bsp names, so you should avoid using them.

    Oh, two things I guess, thread tags need to be split with commas, not spaces.

    Yeah, I dont have a proper name yet, so ADA was originally for "attack defend alpine" as originally that was the theme I was going for, but I decided against it, and I'll change the tags. :D The name is a placeholder until I can find one that I enjoy.

    well, i actualy like the ada name. Its simple making it easy to remember, describes the map indirectly, plus its unique. 3 aspects for a good name. Even though ada doesnt make any sense normaly, if it sounds good it usualy is. so simply name the map cp_ada without capitals (most servers that get problems on capital servers are linux based - dont know if all do, i think its distribution based - and the effect is that people cannot download the map and so cant join the server)

    I have scrapped teh original idea of an attack defend map and have decided to do a 5 point cp. I have been looking for inspiration from Scottish architects as I want to try and keep my map as close to me as possible xD I have numerous buildings that could be used for BLU buildings, so I will be using shapes and things similar to those. Screenshots in first post. Also, if anyone knows a good source to find Scottish architects that use wood primarily in their work can they please post a reply or PM me, as it is pretty hard to find buildings to use as inspiration for RED. I will scan my layout drawings in soon enough.
