    Relay - An asymmetrical A/D control point map, set in a communications center

    Relay is a smaller map I'm putting together for the asymmetrical map contest. Its layout is similar to Mountain Lab, with three control points open to BLU capture, and only one unlocked at a time. If BLU captures all three control points, they win, but RED wins if they hold at least one point at the end of the round.
    The map is set in a communications center held by RED, with a large antenna to "relay" messages to other key strongholds. The base itself lies in the middle of a large, highlands forest surrounded by mountains.
    The design goal of the map is to provide the quick, snappy rounds of KOTH while still allowing the opportunity to set up a firm defense. Hopefully, this will cater to both offensive and defensive-minded players who don't want to commit to the long round times of a traditional A/D map.

    Just a quick heads up, there's already two maps named Relay!

    There's cp_relay, found here,
    and there's ad_relay, found here.

    While you can name maps the same as others, it's generally not a cool thing to do. When I made my version of relay, I was rushing for the 7.2 hour contest and didn't have time to check if it was taken, and it fortunately didn't cause issues because the game mode was different than the existing one. However, there is already a cp_relay on this site, and that will probably cause issues with the server or the feedback system. I highly recommend changing the name when you get the chance.

    I'd also add some screenshots, people are more likely to download and check it out if you have some.

    I just want to say that I like the theme. Telecommunications towers are cool.

    That's all.

    You should upload more screenshots of the different gameplay areas. Most people will only download your map if they know what to expect. There's a nice tutorial that can be found here.

    Edit: This is another good tutorial if you need it.

    You should make a larger radio mast / tower, like very very huge.
