    Hello everybody! Recently, I started working on arena_creekwood. What you don't know however, is that it is very much so a side project. THIS, on the other hand, is the creative storm I'm gonna be working on. I wanted to tell you guys about the project now, as it will take me a while to figure out how everything will fit together in a1. But here is the basics of it all: cp_Timberline is going to be a 6-control point, yes, you read that right, SIX CONTROL POINT attack/defend cp map. Another thing is that once it is done, it will be one of the most vertical maps made for Team Fortress 2. Needless to say, the size immediately means that it will only be 1 stage. One of the rules that I'm going to try and abide by, is that the map will be open and large, but with clear action centers. Sort of like pl_upward.

    Once alpha 1 is released, I will post a new discussion in the forums with an actual download.

    I would warn you that sharing a name with existing maps can at best cause confusion and at worst crash people trying to load the map. Since koth_timberline exists here and is only half a month old, I'd reccomend finding a new name. There's even the recent pl_timbermill, again only finished this month. Why is there so many at the moment?!

    Good luck with your first alpha!

    That's good to know. Thankfully, I always have a backup name.

    Is Altitude taken? Because I searched "timberline" in the search engine, and nothing popped up. Nothing popped up for altitude either. If it is taken, than by god, tf2 maps, fix your search engine!
