    It's a fine attempt but can be improved further. So far, I wouldn't ever want to play on it - 4/10. I hope you can surprise us with something extra to the map. Maybe make the map size more resourceful, in the sense of having the map features more compactly and cramply spaced - eg. instead of a 1x6 rectangle, a 2x3 rectangle is better. You have a good foundation for another stage of innovation!

    I felt what I said before wasn't too constructive. I'll provide a pro and con list for I think the map has potential and I want to aid you in improving it.

    Cons:
    -the map is too narrow
    -the map has poor cliping
    -the map's textures makes it hard to play
    -the map makes snipers too strong
    -the map lacks any opportunities for soldiers to rocket jump
    -the map draws to easily on one small chokepoint where demomen and engineers can create a unbeatable defense and the map can easily go onto a stalemate
    -the map is too flat, being all on one height level makes gameplay boring
    -game objecties are positioned in counter intuitive places
    -if teams ever pass the stalemate chokepoint, bases can easily be camped
    -map is too artificial, there is nothing to relate the encounter towards real life concepts, mostly due to unlikely futuristic moon theme involving getting glass

    The hell are you talking about? I haven't even released an actual version, not even a test version on the site yet. Hell, this thing isn't even in A1.

    You share it here but cannot handle criticism. The map is crap.

    How do you know that? You haven't even played the map, just looked at fullbright overview of an unfinished alpha.

    That's not criticism, that's just an insult.

    I know what you mean about relating the map towards real-life concepts, but how is a map in alpha going to be judged on its setting, and what on earth does "getting glass" mean?

    I don't mind critism because that's what makes me a better mapper. My only issue is, is that I haven't even released the map and you're judging it on a single pic and acting like you've played it before.

    'Tektite' is the term used to describe meteorites that have hit the moon and have created a layer of glass on the surface. The idea or 'map theme' of it is a glass mining facility on the moon to develop glass from the moon dust.

    lmao

    Part of me is thinking he's gone and confused this map with asteroid or something.

    Also, if you are going to list only cons, don't call it a pro/con list.

    How would you even know this if you have never even played it before...
