pl_divulgence - Hush hush, Don't tell them that!

A hybrid payload map experimenting with deathmatch spaces and dynamic cart elements.
The end goal is to have a fast and furious map: Quick rounds, fast rollouts constant action. With the map progressively becoming more red favored past the 2nd point.

There are quite a lot of concerns I have with the map in its current state, and they will be addressed with playtesting.

The target audience is 9v9 HL & 12v12 Pubs.

might change the name later.

Better clipping overall
Better player guidance (Easier to tell what doors are active and inactive, added clues to explain the trapdoor point.)
Streamlined sawhouse layout (The place near 3rd.)
-Blocked sightline, simplified staircase, removed clutter.
-Clipped rock by the lower door to saw
Swapped out small ammo in saw for medium
Adjustments to the left side on last
Added announcer for the control point. (Doesn't play globally, don't care to figure out why right now. :/)
Fixed clipping on the radar dish near 3rd.

Added small rollback on last to mitigate spy cap potential
Swapped out confusing control point like area after 2nd
Moved flank on 2nd
Shrunk top left aggressive uber door on 2nd
Replaced cover outside of 2nd with high tech brush technology for more consistent combat and advanced visibility
Also rerouted how toxic connects into 2nd
Added more visibility to the flank on 2nd

Thoughts: Might remake the topmain exit from 2nd-3rd, toxic on 2nd, and the initial exit area on 1st for blue (Block snipers on the far left attacking pov from clearing the hill from inside their spawn.)

My goal for the 2nd point is to make it impossible to hard hold if you have uber disadd due to the many doors into the building. Blue can take over very quickly from the top right door (defender pov) if you don't have a counter uber or pyro available to stuff them. However blue cannot push this path if they do not have uber, to begin with. Leading to blues main objective: pressure the force via the 3 other doors into the point. (Including the stupid flank under the ultimate high ground). Though I'm not a highlander player, this is what my interpretation / main goal is. Eventually, the final version will hopefully resemble this goal.

Honestly loving the layout of this map so far from the playtests, and can't wait to see where this goes! Good luck!

Now:
  • Simplified geometry near the doorway on A's flank
  • Boredom detailed some stuff on A
  • Added sightline blocker post B
  • Removed staircase post B -This is in an attempt to allow blue to bust this space much easier, Once knocked out of the high ground it is clumsy for red to re-aggress. (Propjump or use flank)
  • Lowered spawn times for blue pushing 3rd by 1 second (now 2 seconds from 3.)
  • Adjusted flank building on C.
  • Added window near the door trigger mini capture, This should introduce the mechanic to new players. - I wouldn't be surprised if it's still not obvious, I'll keep trying till it is. Going to try to find comp testing. Hopefully, they can clear up if that door is even necessary.
  • Removed "stupid bullshit" from saw house -Yeah! Fuck you handrail!
  • Fixed odd clipping near red first spawn
  • Added more bullet block/clipping all over
  • Boredom detailing allover
  • Fixed lighting on A lift
  • Switched out the small health on B for a medium
The future(a2?):

Simplify and massively shift geometry when blocking sniper sightlines for a2. Facelift areas that are awkward and such. Basically, make giant shifts in geometry to block sightlines rather than adding an odd cover-piece here and there.
This should make the flow/presentation of the map more professional.
If the map picks up steam ill find ways to dedicate more free time to it. Otherwise, I'm trying to find comp groups to test with for the end of a1, Get final opinions from all around before I commit to a2.
