    Im going to be honest, I wont release any full content for the time being. However the mode has been updated to either 5 or 3 CP

    Honestly I'm not sure how anyone is supposed to assist you if there are no details. Anyways, if your plan has some kind of grand setpiece, it's probably better as A/D cp, unless said setpiece is at the mid point, then it could be 5cp.

    yea sorry, I am really early into the planning phase; and the file name is cp_draft_house, and playing around with the red spawn format; decided to make it a 5/3 cp map (it doesn't matter

    hey, just a heads up. I haven't been actively working on this map as I would others (just so I don't burn out that fast) but I am diligently working on getting a playable Alpha stage released of a 6/7 CP

    Hey we tested out your map in the recent impromptu playtest but it appears you only have one respawn point in the map. You will need separate respawn points for each team, selecting in each the specific team choice from the dropdown list:

    Here's a quick tutorial page on how to create your first spawn room:
    https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/TF2/Creating_a_Spawnroom

    The basic premise is that there should be a dedicated room for each team to spawn in, a door to close it off from the rest of the map, and a 'respawn room visualizer' which blocks enemy players from entering into the spawn room (all described in the above link).

    ------------------

    Generally your map layout seems a little bit small, and a little bit random. For gameplay reasons you may want to simply copy the geometry you have at the moment, copy it, paste it, and rotate the pasted copy 180 degrees (ctrl + M for rotate dialogue):

    The floor of the map being just skybox means players will just fall and get stuck down there, you may want to simply, for the sake of quickness, add a trigger brush and make it a hurt zone (so people who fall down there just die):

    Your map will also require an objective! If you have ABS's mapping resource pack installed you can open the gametype library and copy/paste out the objective entities for your map to function.

    you do realize the state hasn't even hit Alpha version1
    its still in planning, so im still working out spawn areas and point set up; it is a 7CP map (3 for each team plus the center point) and its still in the planning phase, I uploaded this just to show another community the progress... that is also a inconsistent week's worth of work.

    Why make a map downloadable if it hasn't even hit alpha?

    Why make a thread, even?

    You have just received a quite in-depth post full of criticism, going "Well DUH it is not done get off my back" isn't really the way to take it.

    Working one capture point at a time is all fine and dandy. Uploading a map as a .bsp until it's actually PLAYABLE is wholly pointless.

    Then why not post the download over there instead, rather than adding it to this thread?
