    Jeepers creepers, Scooby. It's always good to see a map get another chance to shine.

    Changes from koth_crop_72_a4

    - Added a deathpit under the large healthkit near mid
    - Changed a few details to in-game equivalents
    - Raised the point by 32hu.

    As you can see, very few changes were made. I hope to drastically improve this map using feedback via impromptu tests and gamedays. I hope you all will assist me in this.

    When you were here before,
    Couldn't look you in the eye,
    You're just like an angel,
    Your skin makes me cry,
    You float like a feather,
    In a beautiful world,
    I wish I was special.

    Let your hands flap around like a Marionette
    Pop your knees up and down, sh-sh-shaking your neck

    Hey! Good to see this around again! Biggest issue is the flatness, if you're willing to add a little height, it will drastically improve the map

    Glad to see you like it! I do plan to add some more height variation at and around mid, as the flatlands around the point are rather boring.

    - Changed somewhat-phallic silos on each team's side to much more respectable looking cylinders
    - Lowered point by 16hu (from 32)
    - Changed all blockbullet textures to the new, non-vvis cutting versions added in the MYM update
    - Made the wooden boards over the deathpit 64hu skinnier to make getting the full healthkit more risky
    - Reworked mid to make it more enclosed and less prop-spammy. this may be the last version with the current design if I still get negative feedback on it
    - widened the capture area to 400hu (from 256)
    - Remade the 2 sniper windows overlooking the point to be wider and easier to counter
    - bBockbulleted the point, so you no longer need to jump on the point
    - Added a secret skeleton
    - Added 2 pumpkin bombs to the deathpit room. Each has 250 health, a 144hu blast radius, and deals 75 damage. These stats may change in the future.
    - Reduced details overall
    - Removed 2 unused planters from the deathpit room
    - A few other changes I forgot to mention


    Well, that's it for this version! I didn't add or change as much as I'd liked to, but progress is progress! The following map version (a7) may bring some rather spooky changes if all goes well!

    Mid has been drastically improved.
    Great job.
    Can't say I'll miss prop spam central.
    Be sure to either remove completely or drastically change the roofs.

    I forgot to write this as I made changes, so forgive me if there's a change that I forgot to mark here.

    - Reworked the buildings at Mid. The brick building has a much more open entrance and is now more shipping/recieving themed, while the wooden shed has been drastically reduced in size
    - Gave the capture zone a building
    - Greatly incrased capture zone size for new building
    - Increased capture time to 15s (from 10s)
    - Reworked spawn rooms. They are now much larger, with each exit leading the player towards a different route
    - Reduced pumpkin bomb health to 1
    - Changed pumpkin bombs to have team-colored models
    - Increased pumpkin bomb reset time to 15s (from 10s)
    - Increased pumpkin bomb blast radius to 192hu (from 144hu)
    - Removed the skeleton
    - Added another door to the side route to slightly slow time to mid
    - Added clipping to the sniper windows overlooking mid to help attacks get out/in quicker
    - Added team-coloring to mid buildings
    - Added more lights to the upper level of the brick building
    - Other changes

    There is a known issue of some displacements not sewn correctly. This is because said displacents have funy geometry. I will rebuild them next version. I also plan to add some height variation, attempt to nerf sniper sightlines, replace Rexy-made models, and reduce mid propspam. Wish me luck.

    Loving the new look, if anything i could see the mid being expanded and adding some new walls/jumps, make it really unique
    I made a map that was just an open field, good to see it become something far more interesting!

    Reminds me of Rapture's mid, watch out for the roof and high ground being too easy to hold and the inside of the building becoming a sentry nest.

    Should I nobuild the inside?

    I wouldn't nobuild anything that doesn't look like it shouldn't be buildable, find ways such a nest can be assaulted instead.
