    This is no longer a contest entry, just a map, using the swamp theme.

    At this point I can't think of a valid name, So until further notice is just arena_swamp_canoes.

    Basically its an arena map, where two Canoe teams fight over the center pond.

    Its been coming along really well.

    Heres what I have left to do.

    Add Particles
    Finish the Pond Displacement-done
    Make a good looking skybox-0%
    and finish RED's spawn-70%

    Then the rest is just detailing.

    This is my first TF2 map that I'm actually going to finish, Any Comments or Criticism is well appreciated.

    EDIT:

    This map is not pakrat'd yet! you need the swamp theme pack from http://www.swamp.tf2maps.net !

    Not sure if you know this already, but the swamp contest is a detailing contest. So you don't have to make an actual functioning map. Just a detailed 2048x2048 space.

    Edit, Map Uploaded.

    The map is VERY Playable, Just no player Boundaries, And on the RED side you can jump off the map.

    Tell me if you wanna go one on one, I'd be happy to.

    looks really great.
    i'd suggest adding a smokevolume brush, about 32-48 units tall on the ground (and above the surface of the water), to create a swampy mist effect.

    Whatever happened to this one, I was watching it very closely. My server was looking forward to hosting it :/
