    Hi, this is my first map, im using the swamp pack to try and make this map, i aim to make it a fast, and furious KOTH map, and hopefully will be in completion within a few weeks.

    Within one of the screenshots, you will see my intentions, the blue part is where i aim to put another fortress, which isnt controlled by any team at the start, and on the opposite side of the swamp, i will put the red spawn.

    The Blu spawn, is a boat house, or marina house if you will, and has good spots for possible sentries, and sniping, as does the upper area of the Blu spawn.

    Any tips welcome, (obviously this is only my first map :p)
    Suggestions will all be considered.
    Thanks

    Yes, just put an env_cubemap over the water and it should be fine.

    Looks a bit open at the moment but I'm guessing you will fix that and make it smaller by using trees or fences or a cliff or something. Anyway, layout proposed in the second screenshot should be good - both teams coming against each other on a corner instead of directly towards for a change should be nice and interesting :)

    Good luck with it!

    Besides being open it could use some light. Plenty of them actually

    One word. Barren. I can't see how the map is going to be sealed visually. Also I can't clearly see what you've already got (except the water), so even more pics needed in better light :p.
