    "Well the difference being: one is a job, the other is mental sickness"

    I'm sad to say the sniper has a job. You, sir, have mental sickness.



    Everyone is thinking it, I'm just saying it.

    FYI someone is or was making a level named metropolis already. I don't know if it was ever released.

    Looks like an interesting concept. But, it seems like the vertical freedom of the players is excessive (to put it lightly). Especially if your last screenshot was an example of areas accessible by all classes. Also, your map is not only huge (doubly so for a koth map), it is very open. It would be very difficult to optimize in this state and I can foresee teams full of snipers, demos, and scouts.

    I don't know where you are going with this, but I would recommend making the map smaller and confining vertical combat to a band a few stories high stretching across the city. You could then use a 3D skybox to visually extend your map up and, if so inclined, down to the street level. You could then optimize more efficiently by sectioning off your map by obscuring other parts with a line of buildings taller than the band of combat and then routing combatants through and around these buildings. This also would give you greater freedom in designing the visual appearance of your map because you wouldn't worry about keeping each side symmetrical.

    Really ... right now, your map's structure appears to be more suited for GMod than TF2. :huh:

    Come on, Fearlezz, we all like to appreciate our own maps, but when you slap quotes on it like it's an award-winning film, that's treating it as more than it is and makes it look like it's trying to be better then all the other maps out there.

    He said he's making this as a fun map, like those aim maps you see on some servers, it's not for serious gameplay

    at least for now

    what is up with all the hate?
    just let him slap some quotes onto the screens, they are rather of comedic value than sincere "omfg, this pwns other maps"
    ...

    this looks like a nightmare for people with low end computers, pyros, heavies and engies.

    How do you propose to accomodate them on such an open map?

    Mirrors Edge win, even thought I'm not the first to say that I was thinking it too.

    Its cool, but for extremely obvious reasons, this couldn't be serious.

    Good! The demoman is one step closer to no longer being underpowered.

    For people saying its not fair for all classes, then you can play on the other 10,000 maps for tf2 that are well class balanced. This map looks more for fun for some classes, but thats ok because its a really unique map. And I'll play it.
