    steeple - I still like Arena, I don't care what you say

    Arena map built around a hydroelectric facility. Hopefully this'll give me a reason to actually practice detailing soon.

    Is that what is causing the spectator bug at the moment?
    Anyway, this looks beautiful for an A1. I'm glad Arena still lives :)

    No idea, but I do remember from the days of running dedicated servers on an old laptop that maps without spec cameras can cause crashes.

    After the last test I've added a couple of things:
    • Sniping ledges at the front of the map to give sightlines over the point.
    • Upper routes that lead to the awning over the point. This was quite a powerful area to hold because the only way to gain the height advantage was to go upstairs inside the building and out through the small window. The new routes should allow attackers to sneak closer to people on the roof without being seen, and give more tactical options.

    Once again, this looks beautiful.

    I'm excited to see the progress of this map!

    How in hell does anyone get that large health kit... It's a conspiracy to make you fall off the cliff. WAKE UP, STEEPLE!

    I gave Arena Steeple to a Soulix AU Strictly Arena server. Purely because this map looks so cool to me, and I wanna give it a whirl myself (finally).

    That's great! I've been working on some last adjustments so I might try and finish them off this weekend.

    Let me know if you do so, that way I can make sure they get the latest version. But no stress if not, your map is in good shape as is.

    So, I think you might have compiled with clipping disabled.

    They escaped the map with this tactic + various soldier and demo jumps. This vent jump is possible with every class (even heavy).

    But they really like the map! Was good fun even if we played against the rules :p

    Ah, yes. I definitely did, just no-one in the last playtest noticed. :p I've turned them back on in the next version.

    the map looks great! i suggest when finishing it do a koth version of it with some changes of course to help the balance that would be in my opinion neat

    I don't really play KOTH as a game mode (outside of testing other people's KOTH maps in impromptus) so I'd rather stick to Arena. You could check Incendio out, though.
