    I have recently started using Hammer and have created my first level. I had a layout test with a few friends and they liked it. I spent a few hours adding in textures and rough lightning over the weekend to share the first preview of my map Arena_Warhead.

    I did a search but did find that map name being used...unless I did not search properly. But the name is placeholder but I think it works.

    Feel free to share your initial thoughts. Perhaps later this week I will have an alpha build to share with the community.

    Cheers

    Note to Admin: I made the mistake of adding the in state of the map into the title. Can you please change the thread title to read ARENA Warhead . Thanks. Sorry for the n00b mistake.

    Name changed.

    Looking good though. Maybe needs a little more cover?

    I finally had time the last few weeks to work towards a functional alpha build. I had a few private play sessions with my friends and they enjoyed it a lot, I hope you will too! On a side note, my buddies were saying this map needs some water, either a pool/large puddle something to douse the pyro flames...thoughts /suggestions?

    Please give it a try when you can and offer up your comments and suggestions. Just a reminder this is my first TF 2 map so I made have made some noob errors and feel free to point those out along with the optimal solutions if possible.

    Really looking towards your feedback to add into the next build.

    Cheers,

    Looks like a nice start. I had to fly around in spectate mode since I can't play on my own. :p

    First impressions are that it's maybe a bit too symmetrical, could be more interesting if you made some more unique paths and areas for each side. BSP work and the basic layout looks fine though. I'm not a huge fan of Arena mode, maybe make it a KOTH map? Up to you of course. :)
