    Looks like one to me, but I hope it's three. Does anyone have anything conclusive?
    Oh yes, what is all this talk about 2 PL maps this update?

    Apparantly, there's several maps, one or more may be PLs, one is said to have some form of "Twist".

    This may be Upward, and the twist may be the fact that it's all uphill. I sure hope the Bomb falls through the centre of the hill!

    It looks to be one stage. I mean, one base on top of a mountain, you really can't fit three stages in, can you? But then again, you never know.

    The talk of two pl maps is this:
    --A long time ago, before the WAR Update, Dario told us that he was making a pl map with a twist - such as bridges that needed to be lowered before the cart could go over them, or gates to be opened, etc.
    --The teaser for pl_upwards that Valve gave to a community wasn't apparently Dario's. I think zpq told us Dario said "it's not mine."
    --If pl_upwards is not Dario's map, and since he's the one making the pl-with-a-twist, and since it's been in development for a lengthy time, we are assuming he is releasing it with the Engi update.


    But as Nine said in the chat a bit ago, "we don't know anything, and for all we know, it might not be coming out with this update."

    Looks to be a Badwater style 4CP one. If you look at the biggest pic, the C-point is labeled right there, and then there is a tunnel next to it leading inside. My guess is that the payload turns right after the point and leads in there.

    Is it only me who dislikes how it looks? I like the new ground textures and things but the buildings look "off" imo.

    I loathe the look of it, you can see clearly repeating textures in the main screenshot, and the detailing is extremely bare.

    I don't loathe it, but I certainly think it could use some propping up. Kind of reminds me of a more bare frontier.

    He leaked the swamp update too.

    Well, technically I did, but still, zpq leaked it to me.

    I love how we're all so condescending about this, when it's not as if we could do much better.

    Nobody was being condescending. We're stating opinions. If I was being condescending I would've been like "I could've done MUCH better" etc. I just don't like how it looks.
