    This map uses original textures.
    Some may seen this map in its previous phases (as 'cptest' or 'new02').
    BTW Second screenshot is animated

    Sorry if this is not well formed, this is my first submission, third map, but first submission in the end :cool1:.

    I'm pretty much certain this won't work. Please consult this. Good luck with your mapping!

    I read the link you gave, and it seems that the not working details are the water, elevators (useless now that I think about it), the rooms at the top and the small space in the control points, amirite?

    There is no cover at all on those points, this will lead to massive spam. As said before, this probably won't work.

    I originally made this for myself but wanted to share and I‘m not an excellent mapper, so, what do you suggest?

    Pick a standard gametype you like, and then study the existing maps of that gamemode. Try and aim for a similar scale and number of areas/routes. As I've said to people before, when you design a TF2 map, it needs to consist of well-defined areas connected by well-defined routes. Taking an empty box and then populating it with stuff doesn't work. Read this guide: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=14594

    Also, your first several maps will almost certainly be garbage; don't expect to reinvent the wheel your first week on the job.

    Well, I looked at my other maps and got a conclusion: the first map is quite large (a CTF map); the second, useless stairs and small space (KOTH); and the fourth (another CP), since it's another test, don't have the need to describe it.
    Should I upload the others?
