    Ever wanted a map where the main goal was to kill people but wanted some sort of objective and spawns NOT directly in front of each other?

    Well look no further!

    Introducing koth_pit! A map that takes place in a huge hole with a 10-min timer and spawn that are actually apart from each other. :O

    Plus, as an added bonus, we've included an easter egg in the spawn rooms!

    So download now! :p

    --------------------------------------------------

    Anyways, this is my first tf2 map. It was the product of me playing around with entities and lighting for two months now. Any criticism would be greatly appreciated. ;)

    It's far too dark. You need to make sure that all playable areas are fully lit. If you look at the existing night maps (Doublecross, Pipeline) you'll notice that the playable areas are very brightly lit, and all of the darkness is outside or above the playable area. Dark maps don't play well and are not a good idea if you want to make a serious map. Can't really say much else other than the layout is rather simplistic and having the point in such a small room will probably cause a spamfest.

    The spamfest was the point of the map :p

    As for the lighting, what would be a good way to light the dark areas of the map?

    I don't mean to sound like a cock, but building a map around being a spamfest isn't a good idea. It might work on sites like Gamebanana, but here we make serious maps.

    Here is some excellent reading to explain exactly what I mean: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=18699

    Good luck.

    Yep - the map is way to dark - the only class that would ever be playd on the map would be the spy with the eternal reward option on - you would be an idiot not to play that class on this type of a map.

    I have a fair new monitor and decent video card but when I looked at your screen shots - all I really got was a black screen. No one will play a map like this (on a massive scale either)- sorry
