    koth_tagawar - tug a war with a train!

    A normal koth map? No its a special koth map! You cap the point and the train moves to your side! Becareful as moving it allows the other team to get to your side easier!

    Reverted change in A2 where when capped the train moves to enemy's side.
    ----Explination for further feedback---
    This change was originally done to see if doing so would allow for the enemy to more easily take the point back. This proved to not be the case since part of the gameplay element involves the train blocking a main route into mid therefor making it a battle to see who caps first. This also made it easier for the now defending team to defend since an advantage for the enemy team is no in control of the defending team.
    --------------------------------------------------
    The train now moves to capped teams side.
    i.e. If red caps the point then it moves to red's side of the map.

    New additions:
    • A small bunker placed of to the side at mid on both teams side. The bunker has a pathway near the doors to reach the upper level. There is a window that opens up when your team captures the point and closes when you loose the point but will be closed when no one has the point.
    • Elevated platforms opposite to the bunker allow for minor height advantages. The ramp that brings you down to the floor where the train and point is goes away when you have the point and comes back when you do have the point. When the ramp is gone there is a ledge that you can crouch jump on to that will allow you to crouch jump on to the platform.
    • Displacements added in the area outside mid. Its not just flat walls with textures on them anymore.
    Changes:
    • Changed the location of health and ammo packs to those pushing out of an area an advantage.
    • Marked the spawn location of all health and ammo packs.
    • Fixed the train running over the buffer that is suppose to stop them.
    • Widened the gap in the middle of mid where the train passes by to allow players to get past the train when its park on a team's side.
    • Attempted to bring back sandvich on barrel (its off and on its appearance)
    • Removed sprites on lights that burned your eyes when you looked at them.
    • Delayed Half Life 3
