    King of the hill map for STAR_'s competition.
    Decided to teach myself hammer over the summer and what better way to do so that a competition?

    That's rhetorical, don't answer that.

    Anywho, I really like foundry as a map, and doublecross's individual team design, and night maps, so I'll mix them together to make a map that has lots of different heights for various levels of fighting and hopefully a great design for either team.

    More screen shots to come, and probably a back story of some kind.

    Also download link.

    also cranes :D

    Thanks for all feedback in advance.

    dl link now there

    for some strange reason my pictures aren't uploading to this bit, so I put them onto dropbox.

    Being polished doesn't matter here. Look at all the in development maps. Test it as much as possible. We can help.

    Edited out that .vmf for you. You want to hand out the .bsp! The .vmf is your maps source file, with it people can edit the map themselves!

    It would be easier to give feedback if you gave us shots that show us more than few roofs and buildings against the sky, in darkness.

    Also, get it tested, it is hard to give any detailed feedback without testing.

    I have done, there is a download link, and I've had it tested with highlander players, and so I'm making my changes there, it's just usually I see other peoples map with a download link and people dl it and give feedback there, and I've received nothing but people posting offtopic things every time I've posted my map or anything to do with it, so you can see why I'm getting frustrated.

    edit: What is the best way for to go about getting it tested on here? Many thanks in advance

    Gamedays and Highlander tests that can be found here

    You can also join chat room and wait for someone to gather up some maps for a test.
