Location: due east of Eek, Alaska. Spytech has constructed a huge furnace capable of heating material to the necessary temperatures to form plasma. They plan to use this for weapons research, and, more importantly, fuel for doomsday devices. The heat from the furnace is also used to heat the facility and melt snow, which is then placed in barrels to keep it from freezing and used to keep the forge from causing damage should it overheat. Unfortunately for Spytech, RED and BLU have both taken an interest in the facility and, rather than purchasing it as Spytech planned, have sent in their mercenary teams to claim the forge.... !ALPHA 2a RELEASED! Well alright, this is my first release since my fiasco attempting to make ctf_sawmill (oh the irony!). Forge is a 5cp map (because we can never have to many) and uses the new snowy theme, as well as a bit of industrial styling. I think I've got a real winner here in terms of layout design. It was designed with heavies in mind specifically (as that's my main class) but also has plenty of sniping spots, sentry spots, double-jump places, rocketjump-able ledges, and side routes for spies. It uses props from nucleus in the center, where I plan to have randomized but periodic "Meltdown" events in the future. :lol: Please let me know what you think! Custom props by Schmitz, Acumen, and Big Rexy Custom "intense temperatures" sign textures by Void.
