    cp_minery - This is a old timey map with 2007 style mapping ideas, based around the theme of dustbowl

    This is a old timey map with 2007 style mapping ideas, based around the theme of dustbowl. This map was based on 2fort hydro and dustbowl, hopefully its not a copy because I wasn't aiming for that. This is the first stage of a multistage map which is coming out later. Hope you enjoy and thanks for the bots and people play testing it with me

    This map is awesome! There's a great mix of high ground, low ground and mid ground; the cover and flank routes are very nice and even with bots the gameplay is great fun. My only real problem is that at points it feels a little cramped, especially on the second point (And the first one would as well, but that upper flank route is great), and I think this is as it is a very small area. Otherwise a ton of fun!

    yah I try my best to make every map I make work with bots as well as it can plus I am redoing 2 flank routes and the bots seem to use it better to lets say get around red which I'm not sure is good or bad just yet, the one problem that I saw so far with bots is they try to go through the wrong side of a one way door which is a bit annoying but hey what can ya do this should be update very soon though (I do hope the changes make the game more fun and not annoying or one sided so far it works(plus been using bots to do most of my testing)

    In the Red spawn, the bots sometimes get stuck on the little ramp and for Blu, they all seem to funnel down the lower attack route, making stickies and soldiers very strong

    hmm for me they were acting smarter they actually split up and when they were getting dominated in 1 area they would go a diff route psi was thinking of adding a nav to the map so you wont have to nav generate

    That would definitely be better. You would also be able to make the mesh a lot better, more bots should flank to the top route of point A

    I think a bridge over the lower flank area might encourage that behavior a lot more

    The change to the first point was sorely needed, as it now means camping sentries are a lot less strong, and the amount of healthpacks throughout the map feels great, however the balcony up to the first point(from red side) could have the wall knocked down and instead replaced with a fence, allowing snipers to have a good position. Keep up the good work!

    The new area is great, however there are a few issues:
    Some of the underground sections feel a tad cramped
    Some of the overground sections feel a little overscaled
    Not to mention some sightlines that can be frustrating to go against:
    20180324085551_1.jpg
    20180324084332_1.jpg
    and this area can be camped easily by just shooting through the slats at unsuspecting enemies:
    20180324084448_1.jpg
    Bots also seem to get stuck under these stairs:
    20180324085517_1.jpg

    In the first stage, there is this sightline, however the collision mesh for the bridge seems to be a bit too large, blocking any shots too close to that wall which is very frustrating:
    20180324084934_1.jpg
    The fence that magically pops up is a bit disorientating:
    20180324085330_1.jpg
    and the death pit counter is missing its texture:
    20180324082626_1.jpg

    So far, the map feels really solid. Keep up the good work!
