    5-point linear PAYLOAD:
    I've been constructing a map with a system similar to Well/Granary, except it uses a payload cart instead of the standard CPs. The theme I have chosen for this map is a very polluted industrial-manufacturing factories. I designed the layout of the map in an S-shape, so I could have the paylaod track run the shortest route, but is also the most choky. Key locations are further away from the track, offering more open areas and act as strategic routes to flank the enemy. I do not run a server myself, so I would really appreciate it if I could run this test version of smog on your servers :)

    Please tell me if something goes wrong, or even small requests. The map has not been detailed yet, so I can make radical changes to any number of locations.

    NOTES:
    - At the beginning, it plays just like the start of any regular old 5-Point CP map, with the battle over the middle point, or in this case, battle over who initially owns the cart
    - ONLY the team who owns the cart may push it [at different speeds] just like badwater, as well as receiving health and ammo
    - If the cart is left unattended for 25 seconds, it becomes neutral; the first team to touch it at this state gains ownership
    - I am aware that the HUD for the middle point is missing, however, I cannot find any way to fix this issue, I assume since VALVe has not created a neutral checkpoint texture.

    Objective:
    Escort the payload to the enemy base. Stand near the payload to make it move.

    Other Notes:
    Control over the payload is lost if it has been left unattended for more than 25 seconds.

    wow, looks interesting and refreshing (if you can say this about a polluted environment)
    love to see a map which will turn out dirty and darkish without being a nighttime map

    are you gonna implement fogged areas where the smoke is so thick that you can only see the few meters ahead?
