    koth_rivermelt takes the best part of my old map cp_rivermelt and turned it into a koth map and then back into a cp map!
    Needs testing. I also need descriptive feedback to what I should change. If I don't get any informative feedback, I won't consider it in need of changing.

    Definitely a solid start Dr. Orange, some layout changes are probably in order but I've only played one testing of this.

    Overall I had fun but a lot of others didn't, I would really recommend watching the demo for it. It'll be an informative one.

    Yes, the demo was very informative, as well as the feedback on the feedback page. The map was originally not intended as a koth map, but I thought it was a little bit too small for the original gamemode, hence the large, unused areas near spawns. I'm thinking about changing it to 3cp or ctf. Let me know what you think about that.

    I think you need to design more FOR the mode and not around it. That's all I really have to say.

    Instead of changing a maps gamemode a ton of times to hopefully find one that works take a gamemode you enjoy and tackle it specifically. Create a layout with the purpose of working in a gamemodes rules, say payload for example. This maps gone from cp to koth to cp back to koth then into a 3cp which you've then since pondered a ctf version; ..or something like that.

    You should try to get one of those idea's going first before thinking about all of them.

    This (version of the) map was originally designed for a custom sd variant, but it turned out to be too small. So, as a last minute change, I made it a koth map. But it had these unused areas outside of spawns that was used as capture zones, so I changed them to control points.

    You should really use your custom tag and set it as "Lain's explanatory device" :lol:

    That's the problem: you started it as one gamemode, then went for another, then changed it to another. Pick one gamemode and stick with it.

    - Removed the roof on the middle control point.
    + Added some space within the towers between the midpoint and the spawns.
