    After roughly ten days of planning, revising, and buckling down to finally block this out I bring you a control point map to the exact tune of gravel pit.

    It's farm theme because I have a cow in the 5th screenshot.

    That's all the narrative you'll get out of me. I truthfully have no idea what theme I should employ, it wouldn't be difficult to change at any time through alpha so feel free to suggest one. As of right now it's farm / mining with a heavy spytech emphasis around C.

    As of July 12th: More layout feedback!

    As of July 9th: Layout advice and observations on gameplay please, I plan to throw this through at least one game day and a few imps before moving to a2.

    The cow sells it.

    Even without the cow to back it up, this looks awesome. Excited to see it played.

    Lots of neat geometry in there. Looks like some fun area to fight in.

    This looks great! I do think you need to open up the areas around the capture points more, though. Only testing will tell, but it looks a bit cramped around the capture points. (Last is fine though since it should be harder to cap.)

    Can't wait to test this!

    If anyone is interested here's the demo that was recorded today: Hopefully linking directly to it is ok.

    It gave me some priceless insight into what I should change, thank you everyone that played it today. I've already begun making my list of changes for a2. Route changes, choo choo.
