    King of the Hill - Cryogenic - Thing-Inspired Arctic Map!

    My First Map, souly inspired by the 1983 movie, The Thing! I set out to make Cyrogenic be a fast paced KoTH map with plenty of space to move around and flank paths!
    [CURRENTLY UNDERGOING CONSTRUCTION, THIS IS A VERY EARLY BUILD]

    Alright, so feedback was pretty heavy, but all of it is 100% earned.
    Cryogenic is WAY too big for its own good. Its twice the size of a normal koth map, which is absurd. Why i didn't check the size of the map during construction is mind-boggling. So here are some changes that are for sure going to be put in place:

    • Reduce the overall span of mid. Because a lot of people complained about its overall sheer size
    • Reduce the distance between Spawn and Mid. I'm pretty sure the heavies play testing it were having migraines and had to rely solely on their engies.
    • Squash it horizontally! its WAY too wide.
    • Cut the underground ice cave flank. Halfway through, players actually only noticed the flank until they fell down the hole near mid. While i wanted it to be a flank, It just didn't really work like one at all.
    • Shrink the map! its too big. plain and simple.
    • Also, work on clipping and other gameplay aspects.

    What's New

    - FIXED BLU-SIDE WELL DOOR (for some reason I used the filter_blu prefab well door instead of using one without a filter? Idk. It should work for Red team now.)
