    Okay, here's some feedback!
    1st point: I feel like the capture zone should be larger, and more defended. maybe add some walls.
    2nd point: Same deal, capture point should be a bit larger, and the capture zone should be marked better. Maybe some more defense?

    I like where this is going so far
    Issues:
    This healthpack is frustrating to get to. I could only get across by crouch jumping from the very edge, and any classes slower than pyro aren't able to get this, crouch jump or not.
    20180616162226_1.jpg *Attacking snipers can cover this route very easily
    20180616163212_1.jpg
    *This entire area is pretty open, with little in terms of cover. Also take note of the top left 20180616162300_1.jpg *Shown to the right, that opening in the fence allows snipers to easily cover almost the entire spawn area, including the only ramp up and out
    20180616162351_1.jpg
    *This area also seems quite open
    20180616162450_1.jpg
    *Some of the routes for attackers and defenders are a bit tight as well, such as the central route for attackers to get to A.

    Overall, pretty fun. I'd love to see how this plays in an imp at some point, instead of just with bots.

    thanks to @YOYOYO and @DrSquishy for leaving feedback, hugely appreciated o/

    - moved the risky pillar near cliff a little closer so soldiers are able to crouch jump onto it.
    - moved fence at second further forward to cover more of the point.
    - busted a ton of sightlines mentioned in the discussions.
    - makes for more cover on first. ^
    - added several rocks around the map for cover.
    - added props to the factory-like building after first which make for a fun little parkour to reach a nice hiding/teleport spot on top of the water tanks.
    -added fueltanks on top of a building near first to give soldiers potential to high bomb.
    - changed the size of the capture trigger on second.

    I like the hydro theme of the map. If hydro did one thing right, it was aesthetic. From what I remember playing your map, point B was very snowbally. Either attackers got to the point right away and easily kept hold of it, or the defenders held them off and defended for the rest of the map. I would give the defenders a better advantage to get onto B from their spawn and give the attackers better routes to attack B from. It kinda felt like every route to B was a flank route, and Demomen and Engineers could keep all of those flanks under control at the same time!

    (Oh, and you should also set "zero damage force" to yes on the brush that kills players that fall off the map.)

    got carried away in detailing/optimizing while trying to be inspired for the second stage of the map. still single stage for now.

    -widened right side from first to second to be less of a flank route and a more viable main route.
    -removed window in top tunnel to second.
    -widened first point
    -fixed spawn times
    -added extra spawn door to second to decrease spawncamping
    -lots of new props
    -added some windows through the corridors to last to increase visibility over the point
    -changed the layout of the first point building a bit.

    woah! 2 updates in A WEEK?
    it's possible!!

    -added a new (flank) route to last to make spy a little more viable and to be a nice open way to push last.
    -i lied, its still not multistage. i wanted to push this update out before the 72hr jam :/
    -the fancy lights previously spotted only in the factory building-thing have now been scattered all around the map creating a more chilled down environment rather than the bloomy mess that it was.
    -removed a one-way door on last
    -added an overlay to a confusing decorative door near the cliff
    -added a sign behind the health pack because people tend to still fall off
    -moved the truck a little bit

    maybe worthy of its own update but whatever i like the number 8

    -indicated the decorative door even more on request
    -fixed basically every clipping bug you could ever think of
    -nice detail to the factory building connecting first to second
    -fixed one of the blu spawndoors clipping out of the roof. still finding a fix for the other spawndoors so will be a bit off
    -used vide over compiletrash this time so the FOAD sign should F I N A L L Y be there. yeah and the fence works now, nice
    -red doesnt have a 40 second spawntime anymore (minor update tbh)

    and most importantly,
    -added a watercooler to blu spawn and a backup if @Erk gets too addicted

    Making this roof accessible would make this area for more interesting imo
    20180907080743_1.jpg
    This shutter-door should have a window
    20180907080816_1.jpg
    This entire room could be widened a bit


    I feel like last relies too heavily on shutter-doors, maybe the left raised flank could have its door removed? Also the flank could maybe extend further, I'm not too sure that it should because I've only seen a8a play, but its hard to get behind enemy lines as spy.

    -"all" dev textures have been removed and replaced with actual textures. might have missed some but I will find out later.
    -reworked all cliff/rockwork to look nice and they are all displacements now
    -reworked red spawn's interior
    -pretty detailed for b1 but i guess thats alright for 1.5 months of idle.
    -narrowed down the cliff-flank to first
