    Work In Progress


    So, this is my first map EVER. It is a simple symmetric 3cp map. It started as an orange map, but it was too boring to look at, so i made a few changes and made it a big house instead, and i got this awesome idea for the middle point. i hope it will work, because as it is now i think the first team that captures the middle will probably build a sentry-farm, making it very hard for the other team to capture it. But i cant say anything yet, since it haven't got any testing yet.

    I haven't found a name for the map yet, so any suggestions would be cool, here are some of my own suggestions, but they aren't very good.

    cp_bomb_factory (or just cp_factory??)
    I could make more cranes and factory-stuff in the map, and make it look like a place where people made bombs for the payload carts.

    cp_warehouse
    I dunno where this came from, but it sounds ok.

    Nothing on the pictures is final.
    This is what i've got so far:

    The middlepoint.
    The platform is rotating slowly, just to add some extra cheese on the pizza.

    One blu spawnroom

    The other blu spawnroom

    One of the two sidehouses. It has 2 paths to the middle point, and can be accessed from both sides.

    The blu base and controlpoint


    I will upload it as soon as i have a playable version.

    Nice, not bad, the only thing i can tell right now is make sure those steel wires look taught and don't have that much slack since they're holding that platform up.

    It's a prop, not move_ropes, so nothing you can do about it. :p

    Its the same platform as in the middlepoint of well, but in well the platform is not floating in the air, wich is why the ropes are slack...
    Maybe i'll add some more wires to the platform, so it looks more like the ropes are actually holding the platform up.. if i ever learn how lol:D

    I like the factory idea, more cranes and possibly a room you cant get into with pl carts on a conveyor belt with glass windows so you can see in. :)

    EDIT: On the 3rd screenshot are those 2 carts floating?

    :thumbup: hmm i'll use that then :p

    But if the name for some reason screws up and destroys data on my PC, makes my monitor explode in your face, set's my house on fire, kills me, causes everyone on the planet (and beyond) to try to kill me, hacks into a nearby nuclear misile and targets my house, changes my bank balance to $0, gets me banned from tf2, sucks me into the computer and plays pong with me (with me as ball), causes secret agencies to come after me, makes me believe i've got maggots crawling under my skin, turns my room into a gate to hell, becomes sentient and starts killing everyone on this planet or gets me sent to jail with a guy named big bubba, its your fault.

    Theres nothing like being bored and typing long irrelevant posts the day after new years evening :p:p

    Whatever, here's a overwiev of the map. The 4 red and blue boxes are spawns, and the blue areas (exept in the spawnroom, and on the stairs) are lower areas.

    Ohh, haha, now I see it. For some reason not many people post grid shots of their map from hammer. So it looked like another program that you laid it out in. =P
