    Hello,

    This is my first release of a map. I'm a noob at mapping so don't be too harsh. This map is a koth map situated in a swamp.

    My goal was to create an awesome control point. I chose the swamp and night theme and in order to make the map more enjoyable I kinda tried to make certain paths more attractive by making them brighter. So I tried to control the playerflow by lighting certain areas more than others.

    Also note that map is small and the water is damaging so the pyro isnt useless and I tried to break some sightlines in order to balance the sniper.

    I have for each spawnroom 3 exits so spawncamping can be avoided (atleast I hope so).

    Yeah that's it.



    EDIT: I don't know how I get a working dropbox download link so if anyone could provide a tutorial link I'll be very pleased.

    Wow thanks for donating, glad you know of the dev process, and I love the blown up overlays in screen 2. Map itself also looks to have a lot of promise.

    It's really nice so far, especially for a first map. One thing i think you should think about, and not sure whether you will agree or not, is to place your map in a location. Think why is this here, what is it that red and blue are fighting for? I think that will add a lot more setting to the map.

    overall great job so far, I can't wait to play it. :D

    after looking more carefully at my map, there are few bugs, such as a displacement showing up wrong and even missing ones.

    about the location, I really dont have an idea for a 3d skybox...

    I looked in the internet for pics in a swamp and how they do built their stuff there but no luck :/

    Looks nice for your first map. However, it looks dark, add some more lights.
