    A single staged payload map, with 4 cp's (just like badwater basin. Maybe a bit too much alike).
    The map is most likely suffering from terrible sightlines due to the open areas. The whole map is open to the sky, with plenty of buildings serving as flanks. But only testing will reveal the truth!
    Still, I got a good fealing about this map!

    Current dev stage: A1.

    Technetium is a chemical element with symbol Tc and atomic number 43. It is the first element in the periodic table that all its' isotopes are radioactive. Nearly all technetium is produced synthetically. (source:wikipedia)

    The screenshots look pretty interesting! I'd pick a plainer texture for the ground though.

    Change the theme to alpine, or better yet, autumn

    You know, to make it less like badwater

    I am not a big fan of the ground textures as well, and I feel like making this into some different theme is a great idea.
    My plan for this map is to have it simple enough (unlike my previous maps) so I can easily change things. I want to choose the theme after I make a basic good layout, that way I can practice detailing without narrowing my choices (so I could make, for example, a haloween version without deleting too much stuff)

    I agree with Dr. Sasha. Plus, I feel like we could do with a little less of that desert theming.

    Advanced trigonometry usage in your map! And school math tests at the same time! What could be better?

    I just deleted all files related to this map accidentally.
    Just wanted to let you know that all the things you see in the pics above- so they don't exist anymore.
    Farewell, my sweet beloved trigonometry!

    EDIT: But apparently I lied. There's the .bsp, right inside my maps folder! How did I miss that? Decompile, and BAM! almost as new!

    Secret self-lies are the best kind of lies! Usually!

    Decompiling Aftermath

    Some things in hammer are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you made a map and is about to release it
    But you accidently delete it
    Bspsrc will (try to) help things turn out for the best...

    And always look on the bright side of life
    Always look on the bright side of life

    If Bspsrc seems jolly rotten
    There's something you've forgotten
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing. (actually you didn't forget anything Bspsrc really is jolly rotten)
    When entities you have to recreate,
    Don't be silly, copy paste!
    Just purse your keyboard and start working - that's the thing.

    And always look on the bright side of life
    Always look on the bright side of life

    For source is quite absurd
    And also older than the world
    You must always face the crashes with a bow.
    Forget about the old 4th payload bay. No one liked it anyway!
    Enjoy it - it's your own map anyhow.

    And always look on the bright side of life
    Always look on the bright side of life...
