    Hi, I was playing on your map some moments ago, and i think you're already fixing and tweaking the map but i'll try to not say the same things you've been told.

    -The hanging container blocks sentry busters/big bots
    -Players can get stuck on the train paths behind RED spawn (Just a few playerclips should do)
    -Upper mid path (The big bridge near the hanging container) needs a bit of cover, so Snipers (From RED and BLU team) don't get too much of an advantage.
    -Clipped health pack (Yeah, that one)

    I suppose you're gonna be working a lot on making the map smaller and will fix these on the way. Good map anyways

    Your map explanation could use some revision and maybe a couple of proofreaders. It took me a few reads to understand what the hell you were saying.

    I like the idea of trainbots; however, the map is incredibly huge. Shrink it down, please. I also experienced all but the "stuck on train" bit that Potoroo above explained. I found several areas way, way too dark (those ramps come to mind). I'll run through it again tonight and see what else I find.

    I'm not very good at grammar so sorry about that. The trainbots does sound confusing. I'll shrink it down but I still do want it to make it long because of the train shortcut.

    There isn't a actual mission yet but i've made one to show the train mechanics (mvm_cargo_a1.pop) and another one which is the exact same mission as Mannhattan Empire Escalation with support to this map (mvm_cargo_a1_EE.pop)

    I've added those missions to the dropbox - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/w1oes1msnuqmzet/AAAIBp6vpvNZDRBQKh5F5v3ua?dl=0

    There's already a few maps on this site called Cargo, the most recent one last updated last year. The others are made by users who are no longer active, but I'd suggest changing the name to avoid confusion.

    MvM gamemode is completely different to other gamemodes and a very small amount of MvM community map are a remade of other gamemodes. Other Cargo maps doesen't seems to be very popular (as what i can see), plus of what you had just said. So I don't really see any point of doing it

    To be honest Cargo is somewhat of a stale name*, it'd be like naming a map "Concrete" or "Train". Really though name doesn't matter that much but it shouldn't be a name commonly used such as the previously mentions.

    *That's why I added _Token

    cp_well, cp_granary, cp_steel, ctf_turbine, cp_egypt. Stale names dont have to be bad, but most of those names already have been taken. Which is why many times players go for more diverse names based on the location itself, of a mix of 2 words. In the end its still down to the gameplay of the map, no matter the name, if the gameplay is bad it would fail and if the gameplay is good it will be noticed.

    So, i was doing a solo test (Empire Escalation popfile) and i noticed a few thing. As people said, bot get stuck on a few places.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This health and ammo are inside the fence, meaning no one can use them
    [​IMG]


    Now, i really do not like this area. It feel really empty with not much cover from anything. I kept taking damage from snipers and was unable to do anything about it except try to hit them with rockets. I'm also not a big fan of the train bots. Normal bot may be easy to get off the point, but if there is a giant, there is a likely chance that it will capture the point and have a very short distance to the bombpit. I do know that the EE popfile is not the final one, but this could be something to take into account when creating one. Just my thoughts though.

    Added custom Icons in the dropbox.
    The new icons is sign A, B and C. It's to show you which track the robot's train are going to arrive in the current wave.
    You need to update both .pop files in order to see the new icons.
    You do NOT need to update both .bsp & .nav, no changes were made when the new icons was added.

    I'll make actual mission when the map is in late alpha or early beta.
