    In this update, I scraped everything pass point B and started on it again, as what was there was horrible and didn't play well. Red should have a better time defending.

    Changelog:
    -Removed everything beyond cp B, and started working on it from scratch. (kept the exploding train though).
    + Readded point C.
    + Added Spraywalls.
    + Sightline Fixes? (Unless they were in a6)

    Looks cool so far! I really like the sense of height variation. A few things stand out though; for one, some of the areas look annoyingly difficult to push. Maybe shorten these areas to get a significant, but not debilitating choke point.

    Side note: that’s a pretty significant sightline too, but it should be ok if BLU gets the high ground.
    Other than that, some places might be just a smidge empty, but that shouldn’t be a problem as of now. Keep working, yoshi; I like this one!

    Bug fix update for the payload respawning system. This time, it should no longer get stuck when certain edge cases happen.

    For future reference for those who try and mimic my system, make sure that scripted movement and allowed player input cannot overlap. Else you get events called that break the system for handling the scripted event.

    *Redid entirety of D and E. Should play better now.
    Pretty sure C is still the easiest point for RED to hold though.
    *Fixed a few logic related issues. Moving the payload too quickly though point C will no longer cap last and kill the payload.

    Since we're in beta now, gameplay changes may still be present, but won't likely be as drastic as back in alpha.

    +Added platform around B to give RED better chance of defending.
    +Added Shed at D to facilitate RED trying to defend D.
    +Lighting Improvements
    -Removed over arches as there was no longer any need for them.
