    i have to clear the teleporters up, they are not called teleporters, they are called telecuides, their one purpose is to trick you into going through them and dying, just like a death pit, that was the only way i can add a death pit in my map, but i will delete them.

    A deathpit is something a player should obviously should avoid, as well as functioning as actual danger, which is why it can be a legitimate mapping tool. Mapper-placed teleporters are already sketchy enough. They generally serve as an indication that you *should* go this way, and players generally don't like getting tricked like that unless the trick is funny enough to justify whatever punishment the player must endure (which isn't really the case here). Teleporters don't function as actual danger because using a teleporter requires you to stand still for a second, and players in TF2 generally like to move around a lot, so players (aside maybe snipers, but I don't think they can even reach the teleporter) are incredibly unlikely to accidentally take the teleporter, even if pushed into it.

    update : i am aroun 60% done with retexturing the map, i found that somethings are best left how they were like ("candles, that "CP", That place that used to hold the telecides, this map is gonna have a lot of dirt and it is hard for me to make the map look good while making it have sense while keeping the gameplay almost the same as koth_onest_a14, also good news snipers no longer can shoot you in the spawnrooms! i am currently thinking that if i reach 2500 views i will restart the entire map all over again (it is gonna be exactly the same layout same props same everything) but in the process i will use things like snap to grid and make it even more symetrical.
    tl:dr :
    - 60% done retexturing the map
    - map gonna have a lot of dirt and imported props/brushes from valve official maps
    - snipers no longer have access to the area in the spawnroom designed for them
    - i am thinking if i hit 2.5 k views i will probably REMAKE THE ENTIRE MAP FROM THE START

    first of all, i know, koth_onest_h4, h5 and h6 are missing, because they aren't complete or good enough to be published, they were checkpoints to me rather than a version of a map, so when i mess up i can go back to it, secondly, I RETEXTURED THE WHOLE MAP!!! just like i promised, i did my best, now some places weren't retextured because i was happy how they were, or you wouldn't even notice, there is a trigger_hurt that will instantly kill you if you try to get on top of the billboards (or whatever you will call them, it just looks like 2 screens held together by a pencil), the reason is, the top of it is really high and can oversee the control point, and if someone reaches there, well they will have the entire map in their control basically, i am very sorry it took me too long to update you guys, and thx for all the support and help i've been given, i really appreciated that.
    - retextured the map
    - made a billboard and on top of it is a trigger_hurt that will kill you on contact
    note : it is somewhat easy to get near that trigger_hurt please be careful, also a reminder that the roof has also a trigger_hurt that will kill you faster than a speeding bullet, so watch where you rocket jump or demo jump? anyways feel free to give feedback, Now enjoy the map!
    (2nd extra note : im sorry this is 10 mb)

    Okay so, I've been thinking about this thread a lot recently. It has taken a measurable percentage of my daily thinking. I feel as if I have no way of expunging it from my forever tainted mind without addressing it on the forum directly. So basically, this is easily the most cursed thread I have ever read. It is truly bizarre; it's a Francis Baconian mess of incoherent ramblings from the map maker with a flurry of dissenting opinions given from other site members. Such opinions are either met with self aware agreement or aggressive opposition. More fascinatingly, the map seems to be completely tertiary to the mess that is this thread. The map only seems to be acknowledged like every 5 posts, when it seemingly should be the main focus. It doesn't help that the map seems to evolve completely separate to the criticisms given by play testers with it almost devolving more and more into chaos with every version.

    I highly recommend starting anew, as you appear to be absolutely distraught in continuing this project and you've likely learned your hammer skills from this project.
    However there are no obligations in hobbies and I assume mapping is a hobby of yours, so do as you wish.
    If you heed my advice and start anew then please:


    Give this a good read:
    https://tf2maps.net/threads/guide-objectives-and-your-map.14594/

    Take some time to plan out your map before opening hammer, whether it be in your head or on paper.

    Analyse other community and official maps for design and layout techniques used.

    BE NICE to playtesters, playtesters are always right. Every map maker struggles with criticism though so no worries!!!! sgomsd ;kvly4j;i

    Don't start a map in a box, no one does that. well i mean, no serious person does that.

    Have a nice day dodopo2324 you bizarre creature of goblin like qualities. And happy mapping!!!!!! Love you!!!!! byeeeeeeeeeee

    Dear Nixon,

    First of all, I highly appreciate you taking the time to show my mistakes to me.

    secondly, I do listen to the play testers, but 2 or 3 month ago, i was somewhat self-centered and i want to apologize to everyone i called names or mistreated in any way shape or form. after koth_1st_a3, i started repecting everyone and understanding that i am not the best mapper and that other people had worked for hours and days and month, even years for maps, so i learnt that you if i dont repect you guys, i will be stuck with a box map and a bunch of unfunny jokes spread out on the map. I have to admit, that dodopo2324 was really a scummy person although he was joking, his jokes were not funny and they were just offending to staff members and members of all kinds, i dont want to delete them because i dont want to act like a youtuber making an apology video (no offence for any youtubers who made apology videos, i was talking about the sterotype that is.

    now that i adressed that issue i can speak about how i started the map, the map started as a box (you are right it is a bad idea), but it was planned out on paper (i should replan it, but i am scared that it will end up badly), my idea was somewhat shown in the first version of the map (pls dont download it, because the light on that map will turn you blind if you have hdr enabled).

    I always look at what the play testers are saying and make sure i am there while it is happening (playing the map), i always look at their feedback and make sure that i fix all the bugs, the only bugs i didn't finish fixing is brushes sticking out, but now i have and idea to fix it, i wont do it today tho, because i am really tired and have some homework to do, but i will fix it in the next update/ version.

    what's "sgomsd ;kvly4j;i" ?

    Thank you for the thread you provided me, i will do your advice (aside from restarting the map, let's leave that to another milestone) Also thx for being my first fan, Love you too!!! Byeeeeeeeeeee!!!
    love,
    Dodopo2324
