Monttu - Somewhere out in nowhere, a pit needs to be blown up.

A rather simple Payload map, where BLU sets out to push a bomb into a pit that RED keeps building for their bases. It's like a vicious cycle of explosions.

  • Swapped over to Gravel Pit's skybox
  • Adjusted geometry at A, C and last a bit

  • Removed the Cactuscanyon-style finale

Great name for a map! I used to have finnish names on my maps in the past and it was hilarious when people tried to say those out loud. At one point i started using english names just that they are more easily readable.

Originally I just intended this to be a devname while I think about an appropriate name later but the name has kinda stuck to me at this point

Alpha 8

  • Lowered RED's respawnwavetime to 7
  • Removed 30sec from the roundtime
  • Removed some stairs from the BLU side of A
  • Relaxed the clipping at A a wee bit since there was a spot that didn't really need it
  • Adjusted geometry at B
    • Added a second route for RED that leads to B
    • Said routes have one-way doors now to stop BLU from getting in there
    • Removed the open window at B
    • Reshaped a building interior near B to fix a case where teams could interact with the cart through walls
  • Added some crates at the back area of last
  • Removed the one-way door RED had at that same area, let's see if it's a good idea
    • Chances are, it probably isn't
  • Fixed a case where the client has a fit trying to understand the finale pit
That last one is an odd thing: apparently it was due to the grate being too close to the func_brush so the client thought you were walking on both the prop and the brush at the same time?
This is all a wild guess but that's all I have, considering the issue got fixed by just lifting the grate up a notch

  • Changed skybox to Gold Rush's after considering that the current lighting doesn't really fit Gravel Pit's skybox
  • Finally adjusted BLU's first spawn to not be ridiculously large
  • Adjusted lighting at the lower route leading to B
  • Adjusted clipping at A to fix a spot where people can get stuck behind a rock
  • Adjusted clipping at B to fix people standing on a roof they should not stand on (safety hazard)
  • Flipped the opening direction of the upper RED one-way door on B
  • Adjusted geometry at B
    • Basically removed two routes for attackers which hopefully would give RED a better chance at holding the point
  • Adjusted geometry at C in an attempt at trying to tone down the amazing sightlines
  • Adjusted the planks at C to make it more clear that you can't shoot through the gaps
  • Adjusted a stack of crates near last to address people getting shot by people they can't see
  • Removed the small health kit near C due to its awkward position
  • Removed the medium ammo kit near the stairs at RED's B-C spawnroom
  • Put something in the room that houses BLU's first forward spawn so it's less of an empty box
  • Added nobuild to a location on last that led to un-assailable Sentry Gun positions
