    koth_wartorn - Red and Blu fight over a bombed-out church.

    This is a KOTH map in the frontline theme, centered around an old, ruined church.



    This is my first attempt at a TF2 map, so I expect it to be a big hot mess. Hopefully, with ample feedback and testing, it'll be less so by the end of the Jam!

    I am currently testing to see what needs to be changed about the layout, I'm particularly worried about long sight lines. Although, any feedback is really appreciated!

    This is an impressive effort, especially for a first map! You've joined the group chat to have it tested, right? It looks like it could be a little bit dark in the shadow of the church.

    I think this is the best I can do in such a short time-span.



    Currently, there exists a general lack of detail in certain areas, and reports of poor optimization. Perhaps I'll work on those post-jam. But overall, I'm quite proud of what I've been able to accomplish. It feels like a step in the right direction.

    If anyone decides to download the map, can you tell me if you get any missing textures/models? I'm not sure Pakrat is working correctly.

    This map looks really nice, both visually and layoutwise!

    I had missing textures though:

    I suddenly have the urge to listen to Led Zeppelin. Or Pink Floyd.

    This version has some optimization improvements, I also used VIDE this time so hopefully it's properly packed. *Crosses Fingers*

    Oh, while on the topic, does anyone know how to check to see if your map has all its assets packed? Is that even a thing?
