    Hybro - Hydro, but A/D CP

    Hydro has great visuals and layout going for it. However, it's held back by a mode that requires skilled team coordination, making it overwhelming for the casual player.

    This effort tries to simplify things by maintaining the same core gameplay, but dedicating teams to either defense or offense. It also removes the chance of stalemates everyone seems to love so much.

    For now, testing is needed to fine tune certain areas to ensure a smooth and fair experience for both teams. If you've got feedback or gameplay demos, feel free to share them.

    Credits to Yrrzy for the scrolling cap texture.

    I feel like 1st point of stage 2 should be moved a bit, to the exact center of the map:

    Right now its kind of a freebie for BLU (though I see you did change it a bit in b05, will have to playtest it).

    I agree that that would be the ideal place to put it given the flow of the map. However, putting it there puts it way too close to the second point.

    From what I can tell, in the natural flow of pubs, it wouldn't give defense enough time to respawn and regroup on the second point. Over time, players would adapt and end up giving up first easily anyway to secure a solid second defense.

    Not gonna touch the second point to compensate. It's in a good spot.

    Some weird shenanigans going on with the z-buffering here:

    I don't remember this being like this in the original.

    While I can't vouch for how it looked on release, it's currently broken game-wide. Even on the original tc_hydro.
