    Yeap, a new thread, since the last one has been forgotten.
    This is ctf_polarity, a 6-flag territorial ctf map. There are 6 flags, 3 for each team, and you have to capture the other team's flags in order. The team to capture all 3 enemy flags first wins.
    The map is divided into 5 areas. Each team has an A, B and C area, and then there's the center area, plus the spawnrooms of course. Unlike in normal ctf maps, you don't take the enemy flag to where your team's flag is, but a separate capture room near the spawn.

    Okay, I've fixed the purple stuff now...

    You have to build the hdr cubemaps as well.

    Why does everything always go wrong with my maps? I forgot to bspzip those Youme's custom dev textures and shit happened. Should be fixed now though. I swear right now I feel totally demotivated to continue making this

    it happens to everyone!
    maybe take a break from it and come back to it at a later time.

    it's definitely shaping up to be a great ctf map.

    Hah. I hear ya. I ran compile on vast for my map, 17 mintes.. then forgot to make env_cubmaps.

    so recompiled with cubemaps..

    then released that my CTF flags were reversed..

    sp recompiled etc etc.

    you want to hit your head against the wall.

    Thanks. Maybe you're right. I'll take a break and after that i've hopefully recieved some actual constructive criticism.

    I was thinking... Maybe I should change this into a cp map instead... It would make more sense than ctf, in my opinion.

    Just pull an Icarus and milk the map for all it is worth. I.E. Put in ARENA and pl while you are at it... But I do think you should do both a CTF and CP.

    The middle area is really ugly and too big, and that annoyed me, so I made this for the next version:
