    Gorge-style A/D map. It's been snowing a bit.

    Ms. Mudpie, may I recommend a new... um... bio? Person description? You get the point:

    "Maps are people too!"

    Trevor... Gregory... I should start taking requests at this point.

    But then how will everyone know that I'm mostly edible?

    After much tinkering...

    a2:
    * squished some areas so they're not so big and open
    * messed around with lighting a bit
    * also messed around with displacements and alpha channels a bit
    * the administrator is no longer silent
    * disabled shadows on doors and also disabled shadows on some of them
    * made the first control point bigger
    * added a few signs
    * improved the clipping
    * added some little treats that I'll probably remove in a3!
    * did some other misc stuff

    And when she asks me if everything is okay / I got my answer, the only thing I can say / I say I just released a new version of my map.

    a3:
    * added proper sloped roofs to the buildings
    * added a flank between control points A and B
    * created some sentry positions on control point A
    * added another route onto control point A
    * added windows to BLU spawn
    * added some stuff to the yard outside BLU spawn
    * allowed snow to encroach further into the map itself
    * removed "first blood!" trigger because it was dumb (I kept the "you disgust me" one though because it makes me laugh)

    When there's no writing on the wall / I see the devils start to crawl / And I don't need no lessons / After all / Everybody's doing a heck of a lot of restructuring around here.

    a4:
    * re-did final control point
    * moved health and ammo pickups around a bit
    * did a wee bit of detailing
    * func_detailed a fuckton
    * some other stuff

    This'll probably be the last update for a while, 'cos college has just started again and with it, lots of assignments to do. Throw this map up on an impromptu if you're missing it too much.

    I lied. Turns out I have more free time than I thought I would.

    a5:
    * pretty much reversed blu's forward spawn so it faces the objective
    * changed the one-way door to a set of grates
    * increased red's overall respawn times
    * put concrete blocks in the area under the first control point to break up the action
    * the administrator's losing lines are now randomised!

    I'm feeling good about this map.. expect a beta release soon! (-ish.)

    Eyyyy. Assuming nothing goes horribly wrong, this should be the last update before I bump this into beta stage...

    a6:
    * shortened the first point's cap time by 3 seconds
    * added a couple of signs
    * texture fixes
    * fixed fences clipping through the roof of the hut near the second control point
    * other stuff

    Did you forget about me?

    a7:
    * made various changes to point A
    *** added another route
    *** made it a little more open
    *** moved stack of crates closer to the point to provide cover for attackers
    * added spectator cams
    * improved clipping on props

    Yep, finally found time to work on this! I actually had a7 on my harddrive for a while, but it needed a few tweaks that I just hadn't gotten around to addressing until now...

    b1:
    * detailed and pushed into beta!
    * clipping
    * added a no-build brush in front of BLU's forward spawn
    * fixed all known cases of z-fighting
    * changed control point names to be sensible
    * moved one of the train carriages away from the battle area so people can't stand on it
    * added blockbullets to the underside of the walkway on BLU's upper spawn
    * raised the roof on the exit by the rocks near point A to make it clear that you can't get on it
    * other things that got lost in the long-ass process of bringing this map into beta

    I just ran around this map. Here's some stuff I found:

    [​IMG]
    There's a seam here.
    [​IMG]
    That lightbulb placement doesn't really make much sense to me. Why would it be so low on the wall? It would be really easy to break!
    [​IMG]
    Walking into this resupply locker in BLU's spawn...
    [​IMG]
    ...causes this one down here to open.
    [​IMG]
    Disable collisions on these barrels.

    I understand this is the first beta and all, but the detailing is pretty barren, in the interiors especially. That being said, I really like the look of this:

    And this:

    Looking forward to playing this.

    I've already got things planned for b2 including some detail improvements, but I was feeling so burned out by the map that I decided to leave it for the next version.

    Also I completely forgot to pack the custom content I used so I'm just going to do that now.
