    How to provide good and usable feedback for me:

    1) Layout & Theme
    - How does the Layout look for you? Is it hard to understand how the map goes? (Considering all the routes you can take.)
    - What do you think of my choose of theme? (Like VALVe own maps. RED = Warm colors, Natural materials, Angular gemetry. BLU = Cool colors, Industrial materials, Orthogonal forms.)

    2) Textures
    - Do you like the RED/BLU's textures? Should I replace any of them?
    - Any textures missing?

    3) Displacement(s) (I am really bad at making displacement cliffs)
    - What do you think of my displacement(s)? (Everything with a cliff texture will be displacement'ed. But at this time I wanted to focus on where the players will be running/fighting.)
    - Need another cliff texture for my displacements?
    - Tips on how make a curved displacement(s).

    4) Lightning
    - Are the lightning placement good?
    - Any light that needs to be moved/removed?
    - Anywhere that's needs to have more lights?
    - Any place that's very dark and needs to be brightend up?
    - Any place that's very bright and needs to be more dark?
    - Is the environment light good?

    5) Props (I've Added some, but not much.)
    - Tips on where to put props.
    - Tips on what props to use.

    6) Optimization (I've tried to optimize the map as much as I can, I hope it helps to people who have old computers, like me.)
    - Any specific place where you get low fps at? (Screenshot of the place would be most appreciated.)
    - Does it run smooth on your computer?

    7) Gameplay (This is the hard part.)
    - What makes this map fun?
    - What makes this map boring?
    - What could be done to make this map more fun?

    8) Playerclip (Restricting area for players)
    - Any place where it needs to be added?
    - Any place where it needs to be removed?

    looks good so far,the only problems i see right now are:
    1)map name should contain "reverse" in it "reverse_ctf_delivery"
    2)Intel should be more visible when coming out of spawn.
    3)there should be a message when you first spawn stating what the objective is"TAKE INTEL TO ENEMY BASE CAPTURE ZONE!"
    4)there should be the same message when you do pick up the intel.
    i used this when i switched another map to reverse,it scrolls a message across the center of screen showing what to do when you pick up flag.

    Alright, thank you for the feedback! I will add messages and change the name of the map for beta 2. I'll have to figure out how to make the Intel more visible.

    i would suggest that intel be made available as soon as you come out of spawn.
    this way someone has to grab it right away and the object of the map becomes apparent very quickly.
