    Gravel Pit/Steel Hybrid Game Mode!
    The spiritual successor of Observatory, this map is a mix of both Gravel Pit and Steel's gameplay. To win, CP C must be captured before the time limit runs out.
    To unlock C, only one of A or B needs to be captured. Points A and B have different effects on C once captured. However, capturing either of them will make the other more difficult to capture!
    Rewarding both a tactful offense and a reactive defense, no two rounds will feel the same!

    It's the new Map from everyone's favorite anthropomorphic armor-wearing birdthing!

    Let me guess: this will taste like Well, but with a small Hydro-flavour. No? :D
    I'll try to download the map later on today to check it out ingame, but from what I can say now is that it's looking good =)

    That'll cost you 52 Alphas, dear sir. Would you like a receipt?

    Played it today on the US server, Extremely fun. The C room was beautiful, can't wait till its fully textured. Keep it up!

    Only a few things. First, Please fix those error models :(
    Second, the setup gates are a bit..iffy just wire. Why not use the traditional ones.
    Third, the door on top of the hill that opens later on, most people went straight up to that. Maybe show some signs starting off saying not to go through there?

    Thanks for the support everyone.

    I promise it'll be better than Vector (which felt forced out of me btw) and it's production time will also be considerable shorter (beta 1 in about a month?)

    :)

    same input for both A and B

    The map seems solid, Icarus, but I think that the rotating thingamahoozie over point C has strange physics. I kept hitting some invisible force as a scout jumping over:

    Played this map during the test, it was fun as hell :) I would say make it harder for blue to attack A and B, as for both teams they both got capped very quickly.

    Also do something about that sentry spot I mentioned during the test.

    Now be sure to notice the engies fancy new gloves in the earlier pics and the fact that his face flashes before his eyes as he burns to death

    Dude. I want your video card, Albobo. That's hot. Somebody should make that an actual texture.

    Played this map today in the custom map server, It was really good. The only thing I would say is that is needs more health pickups. And also, I remember that somebody had built a sentry on top of the C capture point, and when the point lowered, the sentry remained up there, floating in the air. Maybe you should nobuild that area. Besides that, the map was fun.

    MrAlBobo: Those screenshots look like Number 23 (the movie with Jim Carrey)
