    This is the new king of the hill map I've been working on. It's still very early in development, and any feedback is much appreciated!

    Just by looking at the images the map seems alittle bit over scaled.

    This looks OK until you see the size of the full heath pack in one of the screenshots.

    Oh god it is a full health pack.

    I thought it was a small ammo at first!

    I don't see a full health pack, all I see are small ammo packs. Don't know what you're talking about.

    Regardless of any full healths, the map is enormous and could use a good scaling down. Consider referencing off of Viaduct and Lakeside's mids in order to get a handle on good arena sizes and scaling. I also recommend using displacements instead of brushes for the ground as you can create a lot more variation in height levels using displacements that brushes just can't do.

    I'd also recommend clipping the rooves of the buildings in front of spawn. It's annoying and dumb and ends up being a real pain to exit spawn without being crippled by spam and camping.

    This map was tested on the server today, and that was one of the comments on it. I did get rid of that and made it much higher, and will be in a2.

    a3 is now available for download! Very small changes, but fixes a major leak and textured some stuff.

    I'm thinking about turning this into an arena map. Thoughts?

    It could work. It's designed like a DM map.
