    cp_palenque - Mayan themed Attack and Defend

    Palenque, the Mayan's Red City. A place of mystery, redness, and conspiracy. Is there any truth to the Palenque Slab about ancient space travel? Probably not but that won't stop the Mercs from fighting over it.

    This is my attempt at a map for the Mayan project. It's loosely inspired by the map Temple of Anubis from Overwatch. If you are familiar with that map then you can probably spot the similarities easily. This is not meant to be a clone of Anubis but just to use some of it's ideas as a basic framework to build off of in the hopes of making a map that isn't awful.

    Terrific name. It would've been my first choice for a Mayann-themed map name; "Palenque" has a great ring to it.

    It doesn't look like your other screenshots are showing up. I can see them all on the update page, however the main post is still showing the old screenshot.
    Have you edited the overview page?

    You forgot to repack this version. The download is 82mb, but I was able to compress it down to 29mb.

    -increased B cap time to 25 seconds to give red more time to get to it after they all died trying to defend A
