    Muckwater - Fight for control over oil fields and a boathouse in the bayou

    For my first Arena map, I've decided to try and go for a bayou setting using the elusive Swamp Theme. With a layout inspired by Lumberyard, Muckwater brings smaller combat spaces and alligator-ridden waters to the figurative Mapping Table.

    The Mid Building, as viewed from the water
    One of the connecting routes, providing all-important height advantage
    The quickest flanking connector route, trading travel time for risk of becoming Gator Feed

    The interior of the Mid Building, including the Control Point and the map's only Health Pack

    Added an additional, more open route around the back of the Boathouse
    + Added more cover for the Water Flank and widened it
    + Added additional ammo pack on the Water Flank
    + Shifted the Spawns over to be in front of the Boathouse
    - Merged the 2 ammo packs in the upper rooms to 1 in at the top of the stairs

    - Change CP Name to Boathouse
    - Fix lighting
    - Establish theme more thoroughly
    - Fix "invisible water" issue

    I would like to note that the current download pictures are of A1 and thus vastly outdated. I will try to update them in the next update.
