    Looks really REALLY nice so far! I did notice however that some of the gold/rocks (whatever they are) are missing a texture or cubemap, something like that, making it very bright pink. Here are some screenies.

    I didn't go through the whole level but these are the ones I spotted. I figured since they look like the same textures I wouldn't need to take any more pics.

    yeah a result of screwing up cubemaps somewhat (other reflections still work mind you)

    My clan just played it for the first time yesterday. We also noticed the pink rocks.

    It seemed to be well liked and most people had great things to say about it.

    There were a few comments about not enough "metal" around and a few more details were needed in some areas. Looked sorta bare in a few areas. Also, one of the doors you can get stuck in. Maybe they close to fast or make the trigger just a little larger so you have time to clear the door before it closes on you and traps you there.

    All in all though I thought it was a good map - very fun to play. The routes were pretty clear and easy to follow. I think a few more hiding places for the Spy's and engineers wouldn't hurt though. Also maybe some grass in a few areas on the displacement would look nice.

    Thanks Youme.

    It's probably the same door: I got stuck on the doors in stage 3 that unlock to give blu a quick route through to assault the final point: first on the entry door, then later in the round on the exit door.

    We have been trying to play this on my server for a while. (Beta 2)

    I don't think stage 2 is winnable. We've had a few rounds where people are up against the cart, the cart is all the way in the shed, but no one wins.

    I think the map might be a little better if you just have the cart tap the shed.

    You might want to do something about the spawning too, you can snipe spawn in a few places.
