    So I'm at it again. This time, I present something that's been in the works for quite a while. Looks may be deceiving, it's only an alpha map.

    [​IMG]

    Changelog:
    Alpha 1:
    • Initial Release
    Alpha 2:
    • Added new building near B
    • Added more cover at C
    • Added top secret ending effect
    • Moved red's spawns a bit away from D
    • You can no longer build in the crusher(doh)
    • Added HDR
    • Ending tower thing is now visible from outside
    • Some more detailing work
    • Widened the previously narrow hallways
    • Bunch of other stuff I forgot.
    Alpha 3:
    • Completely redesigned B
    • More detailing work
    • 3d skybox!
    • Menu photos
    • Added some alternate routes to C
    • Gave RED a forward spawn outside of B, which is disabled when B is capped.
    Known Issues:
    • A few gaps in displacements
    • The final point sometimes cannot be blocked from being capture, I don't know how to fix this.

    So yeah, the basic idea was to do to CP what badwater did to PL.

    A>B>C>D

    We tried this briefly on 2f2f (2 rounds, 16v16). With balanced teams, BLU lucked out on a full win followed by (after a team switch) BLU taking point C last. The most problematic area is D - RED respawns far too close to the point and the hallways to access D are very, very narrow, unfairly favoring RED. Likewise, the same narrow tunnels favor BLU when BLU is attempting to take B and C. I'd consider opening these up and perhaps adding an additional path that gives BLU a height advantage over D, relocating RED's spawn area for the D defense, or adjusting RED's respawn timers for the D defense.

    A minor glitch - I saw a heavy fall into the grinders near C (?) and jump out unscathed. He was close to the edges, not the center.

    When I said "Tomorrow" I actually meant the day after tomorrow.

    Played it yesterday, nice map.

    My main gripes were however the lack of signs for red (not sure about blue as I didnt play as them) to guide to each cap point.

    The last point is also a bit to choke pointy, perhaps add another route in or widen the existing ones?
