    koth_bridgeway - A simple and relatively small koth map.

    Post-72hr branch of Koth_Bridgeway. I uploaded this version to keep the older one around for archival purposes. You can view it here: https://tf2maps.net/downloads/koth_bridgeway.2996/

    This map is currently not finished, and has quite a few problems due to my inexperience, and general lack of testing. Please let me know what you think, and any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    It shouldn't take more than a week to finish if all goes well.

    This is a pretty good map. Nice job! The one I made (I am also inexperienced and did not get almost any testing) is not very good.

    Changes:
    -Fix this fence clipping where you can stand on top of the fences
    [​IMG]
    -Point exits to spawn towards capture point (It makes it easier to get used to the map)
    [​IMG]
    -Remove this sight line from one entrance to the courtyard to another
    [​IMG]
    -(This is personal preference) Flatten these bumps, it blocks some jumps from one side of the courtyard to another.
    [​IMG]
    -Remove or make this room useful (It doesn't serve a purpose)
    [​IMG]
    -(if you have time) Extend the walk from spawn to capture point, it a bit too short. This might be a helpful video by Crash for the layout of the extension:

    -Maybe remove some of the columns near the point, they make it feel too cluttered. (That could just be me though)

    The fence thing has already been fixed, and I'm actually trying to see if I can remove them entirely. The pillars are much harder to do, however. Removing them makes sentries much stronger, and gives snipers more view of the point.

    Aside from that, thank you for the feedback. I'll see what I can do with the spawn doors.

    Thanks for listening to the feedback! I still think that the sight lines on the top of the building are a little too long, but I guess it's okay. Overall, the update you sent me was a lot better.

    Aight! I've been pondering reverting the pillar change, and instead widening the doors, as I really do like the look of the point, and the doors themselves look a bit weird.
