    This is the first serious attempt at mapping for TF2 by me, and actually, my first real time releasing a map at all. (So don't be too harsh if I do something weird!)

    It's a small arena map using a snow theme, based mostly over a giant lake turned deadly by radioactive waste. The point is located inside a small cabin located over the lake/pond, which is joined to the RED and BLU bases by a lower and upper deck with bridges. Also, Viaduct's owl noises make a return in this map.

    Looking pretty tastey, don't think those lights on the ropes look very nice though, stick with the ones on the ceiling and add some power cables between those.

    Oh crap I forgot ammo. :facepalm:
    Oh well, I'll just upload a fix later with it, along with signs and stuff.

    EDIT: Alright, fixed it.

    In screenshot 3, consider making the light a bit less yellow and more.. arctic? cold?
    Also, I think it's screenshot 2, the door looks a bit funky :/

    In screeny 3 the point is that the cabin is supposed to feel warm. As for the door, since it's arena nobody will really notice it very much, but I guess I'll fix it for anybody spectating during/before setup once I get time.

    Ok... I'm going to be honest, I really dont like this map. It's to pyro/sniper/engy friendly. Whenever we play this map on our server people are confused because the snow isnt a very obvious instant kill spot.

    Suggestions:
    • Make bridges wider - especially the bridge to what I consider the battlements (the sniper hill thing)
    • Consider adding railings
    • Make the line of sight for snipers shorter
    • Make snow more obvious of a threat

    One thing I do love about this map is the texturing.

    I've pretty much totally stopped working on this map, I don't plan on continuing it any further at all. Having the entire thing over a giant death pit and keeping huge sightlines was pretty stupid. :O

    I wouldnt give up on it, I'd say it has potential just needs some work to be done on it. Several people on our server like it alot.
