    cp_doublecap - 4cp

    This is concept map for new type of cp: both teams have one own point on their bases and then there is 2 mid points which are required to cap enemies's control point. Kinda 3cp but with two middle points.

    This is very hard to balance (at least with bots) so here's little bit information how map works:

    Respawn times

    At the beginning of round both teams have 5 sec respawn time. When team captures one of the middle points (no matter which one) that team will get 5 sec respawn time and...

    ToDo: get some playtest, fix all problems and then add third route to B point. Also the last points need some serious propping but that will be solved when I start detailing the map

    The cp concept sounds confusing on paper... Maybe itll be easier to understand in game.

    I'm sure it is easier to understand in game. Also my english may not be the best

    I have done this concept before in cp_uncovered
    In my experience the number of stalemates is effected by how difficult it is to capture the final point.
    I have also noticed that players tend to not realize that their final cap has been unlocked due to focusing on the 2 mid points.
    (the issue might be specific to uncovered, but I created announcer voice lines to announce when the final cap unlocks as a solution)

    (thread is kind of useless due to screenshots getting nuked during the forum reset.)

    Could you PM all your experience about gameplay of your map? I'd like to know as much as possible because of course I want make good map!

    Respawntimes is what I think might prevent stalemates (capping always give your team shorter respawntime)

    Can you just use a2a, a2b, a2c, etc? When running tests/making gamedays/assembling maps for imps/whatever, remembering, typing, and double checking the filenames is really annoying. What's easier: cp_mapname_a2b, or cp_mapname_a2_fix_v3 (or whatever you've got)?

    As a player or server owner, I don't know what all that means. That's why we have standardized version numbers: so everyone understands where a map is at a glance.

    Yes, I can. I just didnt think naming enough. I'll probably release a3 soon, so after that names will make mode sense.

    Thanks
