    After several rounding errors in accounting and an incident with a particularly suave Nigerian prince, both Red and Blu found their companies at rock bottom.

    Of course, the only logical course of action was to fight to the death over it.

    This is my first time mapping for anything ever, so please be polite as you critique it to pieces.

    The middle CP should be a rock shaped like a bottom.

    MAAAHHH EEEYYEEESSS!
    No, srsly, that dev textures are horribile, before bringing this to a gameday PLEASE change it! (especially the green)

    You have a lot of round shapes, which are ugly (IMO),
    you should replace them with a rock or something similar.
    Round stairs are anyway nearly unclipable, so you'll constantly have this bumping while running on them.

    Also, at the 3rd picture, the 45° stair looks really wired. It looks like it's blocking the whole way.
    How many rise and run units do you use? Did you took a look into official maps?

    I plan on starting with detailing right away, just wanted to post for gameplay improvements.

    Each step is 4 high and and 8 long. I did check out official maps for other things, but never stairs.

    I plan turning the curved staircase into a ramp.

    When I saw the screenshot on the TF2Maps.net's home page, I thought this map was some sort of putt-putt mini-golf course.

    Gotta love that green dev texture lol

    Could someone tell me if cubemaps are working on their end?

    IMO the point should have some low, crouch-height cover around it.

    That point needs way more cover. Not only for gameplay reasons but it looks particularly boring as is too.

    I'm serious about the cubemaps, I can't tell if its my computer or the map, as they haven't been working on other custom maps I downloaded.
