    Looks rather basic, with a bunch of open space for Snipers to put a hole in anybody trying to reach the overly tall middle building

    it's like a very hilly version of harvest.

    Looks pretty good, but it could use some cover around the sides.

    I know it's a fast work but I start to rework it right now...

    Lowesth shouldn't looks like Harvest but I try to put some small details like Harvest (maybe a Skybox version of the map)

    I feel like this exact "point in a big open square with spawns" map has been made so many times. It's never worked. There's a reason that all popular TF2 maps have lots of varied geometry (buildings, natural features, etc). It's because this is boring.

    I'd also advise not straying from the capture time/KOTH settings that Viaduct uses. Speaking from experience, players don't like it much.

    Agreed, it's why Harvest is basically used as a death match map

    As uninspired as it may be, I think the big and open space around the point isn't necessarily a bad idea; but in this map the big open space is rather too big and open.

    Also, both the team buildings look more or less the same. You should probably use the red and blue dev textures for better team recognition.

    As I said, I make this map quickly so on alpha 2, dev textures will changes (and buildings maybe)
