    Here is my second "tf2maps" worthy map that i have decided to release. I Wanted to learn how CP maps worked and i just kept working on the map and am currently pretty happy with how the map is laid out.

    To-Do:

    - Possibly an alt path to final CP.
    - Possibly more cover on final CP.
    - Detailing.


    UPDATES:

    Moved from small 2CP map to

    3 stage CP (all having 2 points)

    Pics

    EDIT: Darn, Yyler beat me to it, either way, you need screenshots of your map ingame to entice people to review and/or download your map. If you're unsure how to take screenshots, here is a good start.

    Wow, very bright outside, I think some people would quickly confuse this with fullbright. Also, from what I'm seeing, especially in the first screenshot. Maybe you should add more cover around that area. Also, with the texturing, just to make it easier to quickly see where the walls start and the floor ends, make the floor and walls two completely different dev colours. Otherwise, looks quite nice, and I would like to see this up on a game day.

    I love the 2nd screenshot. I just love how pyro can blast you away when you run to get health ^^. Good job.

    Every time I get the health from second screeny I'll just end up jumping out that window.

    Just from the pics, I think a couple of the pathways are narrow enough to be akward. A ton of area (at least in pic 1) is flat and totally open, which will probably be boring.

    Also, you don't really need to worry about this right now, but those roofs are thicker at the edges of buildings than they are at the top, which looks weird.

    Thanks for the feedback moose :O though i don't know if you find the window simply tempting or if it looks to much like a door..?

    Also i'm looking for tips on what things should change in the middle area it is open and i've been fiddling with ideas but none of my ideas seem good.

    Getting around (at least as RED) was incredibly complicated. It took me probably twice as long to get from spawn to A as it would have if I didn't keep getting lost.

    I quite enjoyed the little of it that i played, though, of course, i do have some issues.

    There needs to be an extra/an enlarged route between the points. They didnt get locked down, but they all too easily could have been. I think widening the route near the track would be best, offering a easy, slow route, or a more complex winding narrow route.

    Needs signs. plenty of signs around point b and red spawn would be good.

    It's very short for a gorge-style. If it's an orphaned stage ignore this, but if it's simply gorge-style, it needs to be a bit physically longer.

    A should probably be a good bit farther away from BLU spawn and B a little farther away from RED spawn.
