    Why does everyone think that it's "eldorado"? It's "El Dorado", i.e. "the golden". It's like naming a movie "thehappening" or "theavengers".

    I think it's cos it's a map name, like how Thunder Mountain is called "thundermountain" in the game files. koth_el_dorado just looks kinda weird imo. The thread title could have the space but that's nitpicking of the highest order.

    I'll space it out in the thread title, that does make more sense. but i did stick it together in the file name because of the reason that Muddy mentioned.

    I was told once that having more than two underscores can cause problems. But people say a lot of things.

    I've seen a bunch of maps with multiple underscores in them and they've worked perfectly fine. It just looks ugly imo

    I get not using "koth_el_dorado" as the map name, but almost every map thread I've ever seen doesn't base its title on the actual filename. Just at a glance, there's Arena Ixem, Koth Probed, CP Toxine, and CTF Summerize; it would be weird to see a map thread for PL thundermountain, too.

    Am I the only one getting dorado flashbacks from the overwatch open beta?
    Also at first (a quick glance) I thought that was glados from portal suspended over the point lol

    update notes:
    - made the inside route to the point more spacious
    - changed main route from a straight path to an inside area with stairs
    - the courtyard is a bit bigger now
    - increased distance between spawn and point a little bit

    the map hopefully has more 'places to be' now. where before the only places to be were the point and the area with the tree.

    Video feedback of _a3:


    View: https://youtu.be/rnnGISiDrto

    I think maybe making that door less powerful by making it more visible from around that pillar would be an ok thing to do to it.

    Also ignore past me I think it's ok feedback.

    update notes

    - made mid area bigger and added some (hopefully) actual cover
    - added displacements in all outside areas
    - removed a room inside the temple area
    - reworked the balconies and the rooms leading to them
    - removed the tiny walkway on the building on the opposite site of the temple
    - removed the tiny hallway that connected main with the outside path to the point
    - Couldn't resist to add some detail
    - actually has some gold now
