    -STORY----------
    Saltcreek is a brand new "King of the Hill" map set in the deserted plains of America. But this creek isn't just for pretty sights, it's a deadly arena for corporate sabbotage as two rivaling compainies (RED and BLU) fight it out for the control of the creek.
    ----------------

    (At the moment, we're not looking for detailing errors, but mainly gameplay things, if you place feedback, either from gameday or another testing event, could you please use screenshots? If you can't, that's okay, but we'd prefer if you could. Thanks.)

    hmmm that first detailed screen shot looks very familiar...
    Youme's Intel Room Entry :eek:hmy:

    On a more serious note I really like the maps using this style of sky box, they are quite unique.

    Yes, it is used with permission, and you'll see in the first post, credit given.

    And I got screenshots of this all! :p

    [​IMG]
    ^floating lights

    [​IMG]
    ^Floating cp model

    [​IMG]
    ^Clip this

    Then, in the next screenshots you have to look to the sniperline, first screenshot is blu's side, second is red's side.

    [​IMG]
    ^ Blu side
    [​IMG]
    ^ Red side

    There is a rock blocking that snipersview at the red side, but you can clearly snipe everybody on the point when standing at the same place at the blu side.
    Change the rock position so both teams can snipe people there, or make it that nobody can snipe people there. ^^ (And excuse me for my bad english :p)

    I halped. :D

    Edit: ignore weird dutch language on screenshots :p

    It's mirrored, no side will have an advantage over the other.

    I like the skybox, but I think it's too iconic for Furnace Creek, so could I suggest using another one later?

    the skybox was made for this map specifically, its not the same as the furnace creek one. It is however the same as the devil's cornfield one.

    That is true. This came before Cornfield though, believe it or not, this was originally a test bed for Cornfield, but it became a full map.

    I still wouldn't mind if you changed the skybox to something less... sunset-y. :p

    DBP should have made the main post then both collaborators could edit the main post since you are a mod, zpq. ;)
