    Turning Test - I purposefully misspelled Turing... I promise...

    I have spent about four days making this... It's great!

    Special thanks to:
    @200 for those nice forcefields separating the outside from the inside
    @VelvetFistIronGlove for the skybox

    I may or may not have completely forgotten to copy over all my entities to the other side... that's been fixed! completely!

    I also shortened the file name by removing the underscore in-between turning and test... "turning_test" to "turningtest"

    Hold up, why didn't it pack? that's really weird... Did I accidentally upload the wrong file? That is a very serious possibility...

    Heres a bit of feedback for ya!

    Lets start with the spawns and work our way out:
    The spawnrooms are pretty good, I like the choice of being able to exit at a higher level which could help deal with spawncampers. However three spawn exits are quite a lot, as most king of the hill maps have around 2.

    Moving out of spawn, the areas outside the spawns feel quite cramped, which I feel is partly due to the large pipes and low ceiling. Also the pipe in the center completely blocks the middle route from sight when exiting from the center spawn door which makes it look like there are only two paths to mid.

    The area between spawns and mid also feels a bit cramped, I would suggest opening up more of the map to an outside environment and making areas a bit larger wouldn't hurt either.

    Next, the force fields. I like the idea but walking up to them they looked like they solid and it felt weird to walk through them cause I felt they should be solid. Just my personal opinion, but I feel these could be better used as respawn room visualizers or similar. However if you do want to keep them maybe add some sort of indication that they can be walked through

    Mid itself is pretty cool, I like the height differences around the point, with the areas above and underneath the point. However again it feels a bit cramped and there isnt a sniper balcony as such, just the far right enterance to mid, which gives the sniper limited vision to the point and not a whole lot else. Jumping around as soldier was also a bit frustrating as I kept bumping into the pipes which got in the way.

    Again this is just my opinion, hope at least some of this is somewhat helpful :)

    I like the idea of having scrrenshots from previous iteration to the latest. That alone helps to see what has changed.

    okay, so say I remove spawn, would you recommend the one to the side that's not elevated? I feel like this could work...
    okay, so I remove the pipes in here, and just make it feel more open?
    I will probably end up redoing most of the walkways to mid...
    I feel like I know what to do for this one, but a pipe or two (small, around 16 hu in diameter) going straight through the field...
    So, what if I remove those massive pipes? and just make that pipe continue its route through the ground? that should make jumping easier...

    I just realized that I completely forgot to upload the screenshots, and I won't be able to for ~1-2 hours... which is terrible... guess you'll have to download the map and see the changes for yourself;)

    Just wanted to let yall know that I will be updating this to Beta, which also means that this map probably won't be updated again for the next 2-3 weeks (due to school, and getting detailing in)

    I do, however, have 2 minor gameplay elements that I will be implementing in B1, just to fix up the last few "bad" things... those being:
    -Turns out, theirs a massive sightline right outside of spawn... (should be really fixable...)
    -! exit from spawn isn't used enough, so I will be messing a bit with spawn placements...
