    I see, since hightower is a stalemate as it is, might as well add the deathmatch gamemode too it.
    Good job.

    Could you do a artpass? Hightower is literally the games ugliest map.

    How so? I'd say it looks better than Fastlane.

    Hightower is just a weird canyon-side mining facility. It's a stupid cartoon map because it's in a stupid cartoon game. It looks pretty good, I think.

    Fastlane doesn't even have a 3D skybox. It's just Some Brushwork floating in space. The facilities you fight over are nothing. It's all just nothing.

    Actually it does, but the guy who made Fastlane fucked it up so the 3D skybox is way lower than it's supposed to be. So it is floating; it just hasn't quite reached space yet.

    Regardless i'd like to see UFO's in hightower instead of magic spells and floating heads...

    I can see hightower working well as a PD map, since no-one follows the objective in standard hightower... =/
    Also, perhaps you could use hightower's standard lifts and use them for deploying the booze rather than using a UFO? Because then you re-use some sd_doomsday's voicelines (i.e "We are on the lift!") rather than the out-of place watergate ones. ("WHE ARE IN THE BEEM!")

    So you're actually making gameplay changes? Good on you. I've never been a fan of just changing a map's gamemode and releasing it as is, personally.

    I play on a 24/7 hightower no caps server for around 50-60% of my TF2 time, I'm doing my best to address the main things that I think need changing based on that, as no caps probably plays similarly to PD will.

    OK guys, gimme a hand here; i've updated the download and it's renamed the file to "pd_hightower_a1 (1).bsp.bz2" instead of "pd_hightower_a1.bsp.bz2". Any idea why?

    It's because you already have the file in whatever directory you're saving in
