    Obviously, the burden of choosing what maps should be included is too big for one person. So, mappers, i ask you. What maps should be considered for the very first TF2Maps.net map pack?

    Here are 3 maps that i personally think should be included:

    • cp_bloodstained
    • cp_science
    • ctf_cruise
    I think gamers would find these maps fun and exciting.

    depends...if you include alphas then siege is one of my favorite maps
    cruise and spywinder are good maps...but both crashed that I last saw...though I think cruise's crash was a fluke
    then meridian is one of the most visually impressive maps...

    gotta only include finished maps, I think.


    I've actually never played science so I don't know about that one but bloodstained and cruise are great.

    Make sure you include a readme that properly credits the authors.

    lulz. And you could do it to, cuz technically you own the website. Do we have to decide right now? I just need a few days to complete mine.

    Steel would be cool but that guy's never been round here.
    I'd wait about a month before doing a map pack. If things go well, you could chalk up pressure, hoodoo, meridian, aerospace, a couple others that are getting polished up.

    I agree with mangy, having meridian hoodoo and areospace in the map pack would be fantastic. It's just too soon for a map pack with all these great maps in the making. Hoodoo beats bloodstained by far, and same for meridian that beats science and roswell together.

    I gotta play Meridian on gameday once. Was really cool and a finished vers in a map pack would be great. I'd like to see it on a busy server.

    I'd also like to see Roswell on a busy server, seems like the gameplay could be really good. I've only ran around it solo.

    I have a feeling Hoodoo is gonna be good, but only seen it on gameday with a few people and red dev textures. A good PL would be a nice addition to a pack.

    Aerospace looks really good but I haven't had a chance to check it out. The screens look promising though.

    I've played science alot, it's pretty good but I think it's already getting around so not sure it's needed in the pack as much. It is done and a clean map that works good though. It can be very challenging.

    While I had some fun in bloodstained with a few people I don't know if it's worthy of map pack along with the other mentioned maps.
