    Alpha 2 Released!!!!!



    The map will take place on a mountain, presumably where a "number station" is located. Red and Blu are fighting over the station in an attempt to gather information from it. “Number Stations” are stations from the cold war that broadcasted numbers and letters, all in a secret code. They are still in use today, but nobody has found any… Mostly they just creep people out and make conspiracy theorists millionaires.

    You should make it so the teams can intercept the information and attempt to decode it. The only way to get out of spawn is to do that. >: D

    Relevant.

    And I'm apparently missing the pun.

    Well that was a creepy vid. D:

    For the Pun, I'll give you a hint: A Wise Man Once Told Me Number Stations Were Used During the Cold War.


    On a more related note, I'm currently blocking out the layout of the map now. I’m feeling lazy so I probably won't give you a screen of it... But I'll update more once I’ve finished blocking.

    In the meantime, I challenge the people here to figure out what the pun is…

    If the pun is that it's cold and snowing and the Cold war, I must inform you that this pun has already been done by Icarus for Coldfront, which had the tag line "Prepare for a Cold War."

    You could always feel the struggle crossing the lip of the dish cap area. Very annoying.

    The battle on the main cap area just didn't feel very satisfying. You can't influence it without being right up on the disc, where other koth maps let you space out more during that combat.

    Thanks rikka.

    After today's test, I'm probably going to ditch the dish and go with something else for the point.


    Things I'm going to change in the next alpha:

    -The dish
    -That op sniper window that we all know is there
    -Create another spawn exit (where???)
    -No health on the platforms overlooking the point
    -A hidden stash of dogbread. (maybe)


    If anybody has a spot where they think i should put the second spawn exit, please let me know. Right now I'm thinking of placing it upstairs on the left-side flank.

    THE NUMBERS MASON. WHAT DO THEY MEAN.
    No seriously. Love the idea, and gave me a little hydro/cold-war feeling (combination of them)

    Thanks everyone :)

    I'm bumping to make sure that the peoples here know that this is not dead. Mostly im just redoing the entire thing from scratch.

    If you have anything you want to stay the same or be changed for sure feel free to post it here.

    Thanks!
