    koth_snow - A map set in a snowy cliff area

    Red and Blue have decided to leave Australia and go to a snowy mountain to fight it out. They are trying to control the middle building that... actually does nothing, but whatever, FIGHT ANYWAY. This is my first map and its kinda, sorta similar to Viaduct in some ways but i want some feed back to help me become a better mapper and make this map better.

    Could you possibly add some screenshots? It helps people get a feel for your map without having to download it.

    For future reference- cl_drawhud 0 hides your in-game HUD for screenshot taking. cl_drawhud 1 will bring it back.

    Also another tip, when you are on the "Overview" tab, on the right hand side menu there's the download tools. Click the "Edit Download Icon" option to add a main screenshot for your map (it will appear at the top of the page instead of the gears picture, as well as the download's picture in any search options and so fourth).

    I can assure you the there is another maps called "snow". Even if there isn't, it is not an interesting name. If its set on a snow covered mountain, try naming it "snowymountain". Or think of something more interesting.

    Gameplay feedback is difficult, if not impossible, to give without actually playing a map. If you want to take advantage of the testing events we do here, give this thread a read: http://tf2maps.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-get-your-map-tested.18871/

    Definitely get the map tested on Gamedays (always on the weekends) or Imps (whenever people feel like it, monitor the steam chat for those) before starting any detailing. There will definitely be some stuff that needs to be redone.

    I added little bit of detail to get a feel for what I want it to be, and I am working on game day testing

    I've decided to make a few more changes with the map including a name change so here is the log.
    -Changed name from snow to snowvalley
    -Added a little more textures to the buildings
    -Fixed spawn doors so they now only open for the specific team
    -Added more health and ammo packs (open for changes)
    -Worked on interior of most buildings (red building,spawns, etc)

    And here are some things i want to add
    -Higher skybox
    -make cliffs extreamly higher
    - Tweak the interiors
