    Fracture - Mining Madness

    Here's stage one of my multistage payload I've been planning for a while! Stage one is mostly outside, stage two will be inside the mine, and stage three will be a mix of both.

    This might end up being an entry to Assym2 if I'm happy with it when the contest ends.

    Feedback is always appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to look at my map!

    Rescaled some areas, blocked some sightlines, made a door on the upper flank one-way in favor of blu, health and ammo changes, spawn adjustments. A better changelog will be provided later.

    I saw you streaming the building of this map. You have some great ideas here. It looks nice from what I can see. I look forward to playing on it.

    • Adjusted cover and ammo around 1-1
    • Displaced some stuff around 1-2
    • Rebuilt Red S1/Blu S2 spawn, which should help both Red and Blu
    • Shortened roll forward zone before 2-1
    • Added a route up to high ground for defenders on 2-1
    • Added new routes to 2-2 for attackers
    • Reworked cliff area near 2-2
    And other things I've forgotten.

    This is probably the final version for Assym2. It only contains stages one and two, as I didn't finish stage three in time.

    I did a bunch of changes to try and control the pacing and balance of the map, but it's late and I'm in a hotel with spotty WiFi so I'll (probably not) list them later.

    Enjoy!

    I did a bunch of balance tweaking to hopefully improve the pacing of the map.

    Of particular note is that the roll forwards zone in stage two is now slows the cart when descending, and you cannot speed it up.

    A bunch of health and ammo changed as well.

    There's also a new little platform outside the cave on 1-1.

    Spawn wave times changed on stage two as well.

    Let's hope the map isn't an unbalanced mess for the contest, shall we?

    Hey look, I finally decided to work on an old map of mine again instead of making a new one! What a surprise! And it only took almost 10 months!

    • Removed Stage 2
      • It was rushed for the contest and not fun
      • Stage 2 will return, but I'm rebuilding it entirely
    • Adjusted spawn times
      • Blu gets faster respawns after capping first
      • Red shouldn't have 20 second respawns on second now
    • Removed the rollback zone
    • Expanded the area around first
      • New deck with route into the center building
      • The wood building's ramps got redone because of this
      • The cap should be easier for Red to hold now
    • Partially reworked interior of center building
      • Removed the narrow dropdown, moved wall to connect it to adjacent platform
      • Hopefully this will help Blu push though
    • Expanded the area around second
      • This has moved Red's spawn back a bit
      • It should be easier to cap now
    • Reworked various cover props
    • Light detailing
    • Changed/added some health and ammo
    • Changed some lighting
    • Clipping
    • Optimization
