    Hi TF2 lovers, im pleased to announce you that a mate and I are working on a TF2 map. I made some counterstrike source maps that people enjoyed. I have an eye for detail, i draw my maps first, think about them, playtest them etc etc.

    I make my own textures.... and models :)
    Now, im not showing screenshots yet since we just started. Map will be like gravelpit 3cps, teams have to capture a and b before moving to c.

    Estimated build time: 2 weeks. Even we know that is not realistic but we are going to try and finish this.

    We are aiming for the best custom TF2 map build


    Ill keep you up to date. Ty for reading. Spread the word.

    Sounds good. Is it going to have a volcano in it? :)
    Like some super secret underground volcano base from Auston Powers? ("Welcome to my Underground Lair")

    you hit it right there. thats the theme. Blue is building their secret base and red was mining when they hit eachother. red has all the cp's but blue wants it back and more.

    the second cp is in the middle of a little lake and in the background im going to model and animate a huge watermill. If this is working out like i had in mind..... <3 :p tomorrow screenshot i promise

    Sounds interesting. I can imagine some dramatic lighting from the molten magma below. Looking forwards to updates.

    I like it! it looks really good!

    Have you thought about doing the map at night time? That would make a really dramatic contrast between the volcano and the night sky! You could also do a lot of REALLY fun lighting things with lava.

    This sounds like a lot of fun, Good luck! :D

    well i dont want the map to be all about the vulcano, it has a vulcano and a blue base in it but the map would be like gravelpit with a vulcano in the background on cp A, and on B a huge watermill with rotating parts to make it look interesting, but also, in the background. So the vulcano is just a detail

    It would be cool if the last cap point dealt with a volcano, being on the top or inside of one..

    Yeah if like both bases were on either side of the volcano, then the middle cap was inside the crater, and they'd have to go in and duke it out all Mustafar-like.
