    Okay, so this is my first map with cubemaps. It's also my first map with a functional control point. I have no idea if I did a good job or not, so please feel free to gnash your teeth and throw things at me if you don't like something!

    Edit: Due to a conflict of names, the file names will differ from the map name, thanks for pointing that out Nutomic. It would be greatly appreciated if someone of power could change the thread title to suit the new name.

    like the cap in the 3rd pic, very spytechy, but the stairs look very steep.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I'll change the file name and whatnot when possible.

    Thank you, should I make the stairs ramps instead?

    i think they're too steep generally. Maybe add platforms between to break up the gradient, and a place for engies or snipers to stand. just a suggestion though, i'm still pretty new to getting the tf2 theme.

    12x8 units is normal for stairs in source, you have like 1:1. Looks bad that way.

    Looks good, but I would stay away from using brightly coloured lights like you have in the last screenshot. Coloured lights should be very subtle, it'll add to the ambience more. I would re-design the stairs - as they are now they don't really look good and would probably be impossible to climb when playerclipped/made into a ramp. I suggest taking a look at Grazr's great article on stairs here.

    Alright, I've updated the map. After consulting someone, I moved some things around and changed the spawn doors. I also changed the stairs, and fixed some leaks. Also dimmed the colored lights significantly. Anything else wrong or inherently distasteful?

    Okay, so after watching the demo (thanks again ABS), I've learned the following:
    -Map looks like it's fullbright
    -Need a better name (current is misleading)
    -Need to expand area for resupply lockers
    -Needs textures

    Anything else?

    EDIT: After talking with some people, I have learned that the map WAS fullbright, despite the use of Light entities. I need some help with that. I have no idea why it was like that, but I apologize for the horribleness.
