    Looks overscaled, too dark outside, and too bright in others, cart shouldn't also snap to a full 90 degree rotation...

    I just want to make sure sollys and demos have good hight to jump. How high should the skybox be?

    Edit: because on my old maps the skybox was always to short. I just want to make sure sollys and demos have good room and hight to jump.

    Edit 2: I am not trying to argue with you. I am just wondering how tall I should make it. I am not dismissing your feedback. I am just trying to get a better view on the changes that I need to make.

    I think it can. I just have to lower the skybox and the walls in the front. And keep the back the same in some spots.

    You can have a high skybox without having extreme height differences throughout the map. Just use skybox walls from the tops of buildings up. Have a look at upward - the play areas don't have extreme changes in height, however the skybox is really high. Too much height can also make damage falloff really noticeable.

    Hello everyone,

    What do you guys and gals think about the map so far?

    The map is on the severs however when i get onto tf2 there is almost nobody on there. Its all bad timeing. Also when i do get the chance to test out the map. I get reked by other people and that no fun. That is why i map, to have fun in tf without getting beaten in tf2 by better players. And i cant be in spectator mode because people dont like that. So i am in a bad spot. So if you guys just want to give your feedback here. That would be awesome.

    I'll download it and give some feedback. I downloaded a previous version and thought of some things to say, but I never got around to writing the post. As per getting it played on, I highly recommend you submit it for a gameday. I feel like watching players play on your map will help you a lot in improving the gameplay of your map- something you could use. Just wait for the next gameday to be announced, or ask in the steam chat when the next gameday is scheduled. Don't worry about being a spectator to watch your map be played during the gameday, if that's what you wanna do then go ahead. Others will also go spectator during gamedays so they can fly around and leave feedback without being shot at, so you don't have to feel alone. In fact, using spectator to give/receive feedback on your map is highly encouraged on the TF2Maps servers. If you're low on skill but still want to get a good feel of how your map plays firsthand (which is something I recommend), then here are a few ideas:
    • Medic doesn't do much fighting, but he still gets close to the action. He's great for watching others play on your map. He allows you to get a good idea of how fights play out as you'll be watching your allies fighting instead of fighting yourself, while still being part of the game yourself, contributing to a team, and being able to get a good idea of the scale of your map. Medic is great because he demands that you pay close attention to your team to keep them healed, so you'll get a good view of the fight. Just don't overextend, or pocket a single player. If you see a lone teammate walking away from the group, stick with the group. And don't just pocket the heavy, heal a variety of teammates. A large group of teammates have a better chance of keeping you alive than a single one. As per your medigun, quick-fix requires the least amount of skill to maximize its potential, and the uber is great for saving your life or your heal target's life in a bad situation.
    • If aiming is the problem, Heavy doesn't need too much aim. Just stick close to your teammates and even closer to your medic, as you'll be absorbing damage like a sponge. Oh, and here's the unspoken rule of all heavy mains: Every time you die, blame it on your team. Your team sucks, and you're perfect at the game, so if you die, it's obviously your team's fault. (Those last 3 sentences were sarcasm, don't actually be that player pls.)
    If you're looking to further improve your skills, I recommend looking up guides on Steam. Although the most popular guides are just shitposts, you can find some really good guides by searching for a specific class. There are a lot of mechanics and individual skill required in becoming good at TF2, and although experience is a great teacher, just playing the game isn't enough to actually learn everything. (I should know, my first 750 hours were mostly spent turtling my sentry on an instant respawn 24/7 Dustbowl server. No joke.) Additionally, practice your aim. Aim is very important, and it's something that even I'm bad at. You don't have to be an aimbot (and pls don't install an actual aimbot), but just being able to land your shots semi-consistently can be very helpful.

    Anyway, this post is far longer than I intended it to be. Good luck with your map, and I'm going to see if I can get you some feedback.
