    Smokyhill, based of the ghost town, 'Smoky Hill City' is a 3 point, AB->C Gravel Pit style CP map. Set in a Badlands-style enviroment with 3 small-ish areas for between 10 and 16 players (although it supports up to 32, it's not recomended). The map has hight variation, and plenty for all classes to do!

    [I know the 3D Skybox is from Badwater, it's just a placeholder until I make my own.]

    initial concern is that the CP have long sight lines for snipers. Think about gravelpit capture points, quite enclosed although there is a lot of space outside them to play.

    Thanks!

    I've tried to make it so that Snipers can have a bit of fun, but they are left completely open to spys, pyros, anyone who wants to get them pretty much. We'll see on gameday.

    Thanks. The song is 'Don't Blame Your Daughter' by The Cardigans in their album 'Super Extra Gravity'

    Cool, thanks. I'm hoping to put it into next weeks gameday!

    We played the map today on grim's server, and it was a quite fun map. But I suggest to add 1 or more buildings around cp B to make it a bit less sniper friendly.

    I also think that cp C will be very hard for blu when you play the map on a 24 slots server, cuz the spawn is quite close to the cp.

    Anyway, looking forward to the next version! :D

    I'd really strongly recommend the ramp to A from red spawn, and maybe ditching teh current route to B and going with a cave from red spawn.

    Thanks. Alpha 2 (working on it!) will have more cover at B, a ramp at C to get to the 'A' building (the sign is no longer a lie) and I've re-worked the metal/health on C.

    There is now a route from C directly to B, exactly where you put your spray. :)

    I'd like to personally thank everyone who joined us on GRIM's server testing!

    I think the map ran veeeeeeeeery nice last night. There were enough possibilities for every class. There were only a few huger sightlines, but, none the less, it was awesome.
    I'll edit this post with screenshots later.

    I really enjoyed playing this last night - its a nice little map.

    Not too big - not too small and seemed just right..

    Some people were whinging a little about how hard C was to defend (or was it capture?)

    Anyways, it seemed ok to me - each team will take turns in defending and attacking so each team should have a go at doing both, I suppose...

    Couple of things....

    1) need to finish or close up the floor in the blue spawn room....

    [​IMG]

    2) I seemed to get 'ravidged' at this point coming out of the Blu bit....(pic below) you could move the rock (red arrow) a little over, but it just might be down to me being a crap player.....

    [​IMG]

    Look forward to seeing more of the TF2 textures being applied, and the gradual reduction of the dev ones...

    Good job
    Nosh.

    ....
