    1. I can guarantee that the name cliffside has been taken.
    2. Add lighting. We don't test maps that use fullbright because it breaks the server and looks hideous.

    A couple of kinda interrelated layout points:
    -the two intel room enterences can be pretty easily watched by the same person/sentry. I know 2fort does it but it's not always the best role model
    -the intel is behind the team's spawn. If there were other routes it might be less severe an issue (one intel route in 2fort and turbine goes right by spawn) but it encourages the other team to camp spawn in order to steal the intel.
    -the map is quite long and narrow. This tends to discourage alternate routes (see above) and encourage overpowered sniper sightlines if you aren't careful
    -the courtyards could probably use some cover, they look a bit large and barren.

    A4 Out!

    Changes:
    - Added lighting
    - Added like 1 overlay
    - Moved small shack in field away from cliff some

    Also thinking about putting this map up for a gameday when a5 comes out.
    I am new and don't really know too much and this map only has 2 replies, so I will probably just have to experiment until I get some more help.

    Read the rest of this update entry...

    Get your map tested in an imp by joining the steam group chat and typing "!add ctf_cliffside_ax [download link]"
    People rarely post feedback on the map's thread. Instead check http://feedback.tf2maps.net/ after the test has passed.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    You should post a screenshot of the map now that it has lighting so people can see what they are downloading.

    Not trying to be mean or anything, but it doesn't seem to me that you have checked the feedback/demo of this map getting play tested. We noticed that the map is very flat, straight, and has giant sight lines. Thoughts were some of the major things we pointed out, but there was a lot more feedback. But it seems the only thing in this recent update is some texture fixes, instead of majorly changing the gameplay and design of your map to make it enjoyable. If you don't know how to access the feedback page, here is a link: http://feedback.tf2maps.net/

    Just search up your map name and find the right version. With this you can see what people have said via the feedback plugin (!fb and !gf), view demos/recordings of your map being played on (useful for listening to what people are saying on the mic for feedback), and you are able to download the feedback as a VMF filled with nodes that you can copy and paste into your map and view them. I HIGHLY consider using the feedback you get to make each version better than the last.
