    My very first map and hopefully soon to be part of TF2 World Server. arena_schwarzwald was inspired by http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?p=131574 and is intended for spot 20 (Schwarzwald, Germany) on its master list.

    I gotta admit I don't have any proper theme (other than, well, Schwarzwald) yet, but that's the least of my concerns for now. My goal is just to finish a playable map, which - I had to learn - isn't easy for a newbie.

    I postponed the TF2M topic until the most obvious major bugs/oversights were gone and am now hoping for some more criticism and maybe even some more playtests before I go on. (TF2 World Server forums topic) Thanks in advance, and

    Thanks to:
    ABS for the Gametype Library
    SPHinx for the original idea

    Why thanks, finally some comment XD

    Yeah, the outside areas as well as the CP area have not even made it past devtexture stage yet, but I am pretty much done with the basic layout at least. Any ideas of spiffy graphical features for the outside areas?

    Maybe more opportunities to get height advantage, and a couple sniping spots. I also like a few side routes on arena maps, sort of like ravine. Don't overdue it like nucleus though. (both teams get to the other side with nobody dying. basically switching places)
