  • Your map must be TF2 styled. (No other valve games/other games)

  • Everything must be finished and submitted in the upload thread before the deadline! Upload thread will be up a week prior to the deadline and you are allowed to submit any time within that week, and update your entry as many times as necessary before the deadline.

Climb aboard the graceful airship! Travel in luxury aboard a floating fortress! We can't guarantee you won't be shot at by angry people on the ground.

Edit: Updated to fix lighting bugs and I added a bomb dropping animation. Yay!

Somewhere off the coast of Ireland...

Hi, whats up everyone, I haven't really shown anything about this project on the discord, or in the wip thread but this is pretty much what I've been working on since the high and low contest was announced The map is set somewhere off the coast of Ireland, and is heavily inspired by the giants causeway and a few other areas with columnar jointing.

The name devils rock is also inspired by another place called The Devils Tower, unsurprisingly To finish this, and to shorten this post I'd like to thank people that helped me; Mainly my friends helped with inspiration and motivation, but also the community at TF2Maps with their input and the other people that entered in this contest inspiring me me to continue development on this map. I also used a whole lot of Fuzzymelon's textures and I used a whole lot of Diva Dans trees, and the fog from Watergate (sexy fog) which will be linked below.

Sorry for all the deleting and resubmitting! I packed and repacked this stuff pretty early in the morning and I must've missed a few steps! Hopefully, this version will have its content packed! (6:01 PM - packed!)
