    basically a lil experiment + a lot of silliness.

    a simple and small CTF map, probably not suited well for a large player count.

    the goal is to develop a more vibrant thematic style for tf2, but one that still fits tf2.
    for the most part all i've done so far on that note really is to jut up the the saturation on the valve-textures.

    i'm not done in that regard though i think i'm making positive headway so far.


    and yeh, this DID prevent me from finishing the last stage of rollout for this week :p i really need to hurry up :(

    Reminds me of Cornfield from FF for some reason, which in turn reminded me of UFO (the game) - and that's not a bad thing, I love maps with cornfields ^^

    yeh... well any higher than that and it just looks weird.
    i'm actually now considering replacing the corn with sunflower models instead... i just think sunflowers would look better, plus models= i can rotate them and stuff so it doesn't look like an array of the same sprite over and over

    i'll most likely still use the corn sprites, but in a non-playable area

    The outside is like someone ate a rainbow and vomited all over it.

    The inside is win though, so amusing. But it's a map you can't take seriously, it's too small and carrying the intel is way too easy. A scout can cover something like 80% of the way from one base to the other with a single triple jump from the enemy base's window...

    Huge pumpkin as intel is hilarious.

    That is all.

    why... you got some sunflower models on hand? :)



    i've already touched up the textures so they're less intense for the grass on the outside.if it wasn't almost 2am here i'd put up some new screenshots

    humm this is odd...
    if i build cubemaps, the tyre tracks overlays get messed up, with some randomly going dark and some going light. weird ... since the overlay isn't in any way reflective.

    anyone got any idea why this is... and also why the water doesn't have a purple/black reflection despite the fact i've not built cubemaps (i've place env_cubemaps on the map as normal, just haven't used the buildcubemaps on the alpha1 release cos of this issue)

    It uses the default cubemaps textures before building them (a hl2 sky)
