    After learning lots from my first map, cp_dusk, I am now making another a/d cp map, this time with a thunderstorm (mostly lightning and thunder, little rain) alpine theme.

    That picture reminds me of Dragon Wars.

    Anyone seen it? Rocket Dinos are in there and at the end the main character goes to Mordor (actually a little bit away from Los Angeles but still looks like mordor) and then a Dragon Cries and all order is restored :O

    Isn't lightning ridge that place over east in australia where all the opals come from?

    You must have opals.

    Looked it up on Google, and yes it is... thus... there will be opals... somewhere.

    Excellent. Also, it looks very good, looking forward to the weather (which I could be enjoying outside at the moment, but I'm not, I'm playing tf2!)

    I did find the layout enjoyable. I have a few doubt about the mega health pack on the first CP and the very protected onlooking coner on CP 2-1, though. On the 5v5 playtest, it was quite a bit defended. With two enginners and/or an airblasting pyro, I foresse this as quite difficult to overcome.

    So I just played it, I really liked the layout. I can't wait to see what you will put in the skybox by those windows in the second stage.
    Looking forward it!

    Gameday thoughts.

    As Engineer, I did find metal to be a bit scarce, especially in the 3rd stage. I think some of the low ammopacks could be medium instead. Just my opinion anyway.

    I also think the respawn time could be raised a bit to prevent the constant spammy battle occurring.

    But apart from that, I think it plays very well. A bit spammy, but I guess that's what you get with 24 players. Keep it up :)
