    cp_orange_bear - A refreshingly new on-grid orange map

    The layout of my map is heavily based on that of cp_orange_z7, but everything has been made from scratch.

    There aren't actually any control points at the moment as it is currently intended for just casual DM. In later versions this may change.
    I am also considering a tunnels system that connects both spawns and the red and blue towers, all of which are in opposite corners of the map.

    Version A1:
    My first release! It's been only 2 and a half days since I started from a blank file, so don't be too harsh on me :3

    The reaction of this community to cp_orange and remakes will probably be harsh. Orange is a poor map actually. Poor enough never to make remakes unless paid.

    Although I appreciate that cp_orange maps do not appeal to everyone, I still think they remain sufficiently popular for new versions to be appreciated by players that enjoy older orange maps.
    Thx for the feedback anyway c:

    There are still some massive sight lines which is ancient issue for orange maps. But from what i see it looks like a charming re visioning of the what i used to play. If i still had a server i'd probably add it to rotation even.

    - The small health pack areas in the water are a little taller so that the player can enter them even when looking downwards
    - Many world brushes are now func_detail
    - About 8 func_detail brushes are now world brushes because this somehow fixes their odd lighting (they were all slopes, all but one were on the blue side)
    There are still 3 slopes with darker than normal lighting but they are not too noticable, and won't be changed until I am confident that making them func_detail is necessary

    Shorter buildings, more healthpacks & entraces to upcoming underground.
    The underground should be added in A5 and will join up all 7 new holes, with one-way exits from spawns.

    Hi! Overall nice remake of a beloved z7, but here are some subjective issues:

    1) Giant empty and flat areas near spawn and between mid and 2nd point (I know its same in z7, but still)
    2) Gridded textures flicker a lot, they are not very pleasing to eyes, I think just plain colored red, blu, gray and orange textures would work.
    3) Underground is a nightmare to navigate, its basically a labyrinth, very confusing, especially when you go down a spiral staircase at 2nd point.
    4) Map needs points in order to keep server rotation going. Now, if somebody uses your map it will last forever.

    Hope to see here a proper remake of z7, keep up the good work!
