    I have a lot of open space on my map (i.e. next to control point, outside spawn doors) and I don't know what to put there. I already have 2 boxes by the control point but it still feels very empty. Should I leave it or put some health or ammo there?

    Open space isn't inherently bad depending upon the surrounding areas. Try to give your open areas some decent cover and height variation to keep gameplay interesting.

    The space looks a bit flat, try playing with the geometry a little.

    all I think that could help is try sticking it into a corner to a hill, or raise it up like the 2nd capture point on the second round of dustbowl.

    I scrapped that project and continued to a different version due to size scales. Thanks for the suggestions tho ^-^

    scrapping doesn't have to be the end of a map, I think its all well and good to review old map projects at least once every year, to see where you started, and where you are now. Maybe time to think may be what turns an alpha into an RC, who knows. I wish you luck in future endeavors.
