I just happened upon the tf2wiki article for background01. In the article, it states that background maps are an unused feature of tf2, but entering the command
map_background background01
into the console will enable it. This got me thinking, would it be possible to make a custom background map, give it a unique name, then use this command in the launch options to automatically run it on startup?

Why would you need a navmesh or an objective? Background maps are the very opposite of playable.

Knowing this is possible opens up a huge amount of possibilities! Time to get jammin' I suppose.
