    VINTAGE
    An Arena map by Mr. Hanz / Muffin Man

    Vintage is a large arena map created by Mr. Hanz and me in early 2009. It was abandoned soon after, but I recently picked it up in order to finish it. A beta will be released soon. Its gameplay may not be as polished as a beta map should be, because this is mainly a detailing practice. However, we did both take note that people seemed to like the map during the playtests, which is another incentive to work on it. Remember - coming soon!

    Remove that dump truck! The only kind of vehicle in there should be the little red and blu pickup trucks in 2fort.

    I agree with vavnder, I want to see if and how you make a wind turbine.
    Still looks good so far.

    I agree 100%. Feels very out of place.

    Yeah, it's probably out of place. It's just a general idea, though, of course we're going to give it a more farm-like look as we go. :)

    Also, where's the thanks button for this section?

    Let's call it danish ;)

    Anyway, sounds very interesting! We don't have enough maps with that theme...

    Well, the image name is something along the lines of "Danish windmill", so I guess you're right.

    Flew around the map (can't test arena with only one person, and if you can I don't know how :\) and the only thing that stood out to me was the placement of the medium ammo pack behind the dump truck. It's quite close to the large ammo on the balcony and is in strange spot that I don't think most people would come across. Maybe consider moving it closer to the middle of the map or taking it out all together. Oh, and one texture on the side of the building was left as grey dev instead of red/blue dev. Didn't get a screenshot, sorry :(. Other than that looks pretty good so far, look forward to playtesting it!

    Just a little tip for the Windmill if you're going to use an original one:

    Those blades, in reality, are as large as 2 normal-size Train flatbeds. I was on my way to school the other day, and passed over a trainyard. There was a huge line of trains, with each double-sized flatbed carrying one of the blades. Those things are huge. Seriously, it made me feel really small and they almost looked alien.

    Something like this, I presume? Yeah, they're giant. I dunno what Hanz is thinking, but in my opinion we should probably stick them kind of far off in the skybox.

    Incidentally, those blades are an enormous waste of money, generating nowhere near enough power to be useful.
