    That truck in Screenshot 2, is that a custom model or did you just add your own railing?

    Why did you make a KotH map?

    It's from the FP vehicle pack.

    You a salty :cookie:?

    A couple of notes I had from the IMP:
    • I found the point to be too hard to capture due to the height difference of the top of the fountain and because the area around the point feels very constricted. I'd widen the point and maybe make the middle building two separate paths, because one small doorway chokes it off.
    • The two side routes are pretty large sightlines, I'd break it up more because both teams are fighting along the sides too much as if they're more of the main pathway instead of the flanks.
    • The two building outside of the spawns don't provide too much of an advantage, and are just another tight pathway. If you added a window or two on each building, it would give an incentive to control them if you wanted to defend your spawn.
    • I enjoy the open area around the spawn because it allows for a lot of nice rocket jumps from platform to platform and building to building.
    • I liked the geometry of the point a lot, but I think the area around it (especially the side ramps) shouldn't have as much verticality.
    • The overall layout is simple and clean. The art style will be somewhat unique because there isn't a lot of city maps.
    I'm looking forward to the upcoming versions of Salt, it looks promising.

    'Cos. Also I was inspired by koth_king's layout and I wanted to try it in a more suburban setting.

    Thanks! Overall I feel like nothing about the map was horribly wrong, which is a good sign.

    Is the fountain using saltwater or something?

    I'm not sure why I specifically called it Salt. I just wanted something short and easy to spell.

    Combine with cp_sulfur and pl_pollution and you've got a theme for a map group.

    I realised I'd completely lost track of time when I noticed it was 6am
