    Hi all. This is my first tf2 map, called Stiltown. Its suspended in the sky via mysterious forces, and is in quite a state of disrepair. Its played in the 5-CP style, like Well. Watch your step!

    Can I please have some constructive critisicm of this map? This is the fifth place I've posted it and all I've gotten are insults from f***wads who have just glanced at the pictures. I want to get better as a mapper, but I can't to that without getting told what I'm doing wrong

    It is way too easy to fall off. There's 5 places to post a map?

    No it isn't. We've had big games of this over a bunch of servers and its been pretty hard to fall or be knocked off, unless you get surprised by a sentry. I'm not saying "watch your step" for no reason.

    Well, here, and some generic game forums i go to.

    Go look at mudbath people complain about falling off there. People won't look twice at this map cause of how insanely easy it is to get pushed off.

    There's no point in posting a final here on the WIP forums unless you're willing to take criticism and work from it, and so far I've seen you ignore one comment that I'm fairly sure is correct. Open maps with nothing like railings to stop falling off are annoying.

    I'm downloading right now and I'll give a full report after the break.

    I am willing to take criticism, but the map being the way it is I'm expecting complaints that you can fall off from a few players. It's kinda the theme of the map ( not actually falling off, but being in a high place where there is the threat of falling off) Everyone else has been fine with it, and there are more railings than you can see in the pictures. You just have to pay attention to where youre going. I look forwardto your report :)

    Just as a thought, this might work well with the new swamp theme that tf2maps has just produced. Houses down in the swamp are often built on stilts.
