(Water neeeeeds proper vis to work)
I like this alot a lot.
What have I done.
Quick, everyone rebuild your april fools maps with that prop stashed somewhere.
Small area for big things to come:
Big enough to the point where Viaduct and Well had a child.
Only a fast compile for now, but having lots of fun putting this together (it's not even playable yet, lacks clips and there's a lot of rooms which need better lighting)
...Naturally, the item import tool broke with the recent update.
@berry, it feels quite open, and the roofs seem like they should be accessible to demos and soldiers, which will add a few thorns to making the map enjoyable for both sides.
I've been looking along sightlines, and there's nothing too abusable because of fence placements / height variation (mostly the latter on B). Especially seeing as I believe snipers can't scope in when they're in non-shallow water.
As for the roofs, I can just raise the ones people can't get on.
Edit: Maybe you mean a lack of cover? I'm still to add in more coverings and stuff in a few places.
I can't say much about sightlines without having actually been in the map, but the overall map does feel open, and accessible. not quite certain how to word it properly.
I guess i could generalise it into "How much of the roofs and prop fences are you going to playerclip so as to not allow soldiers and demos bypassing interior areas, unless that was intentional --which still raises a whole different set of problems".
Looks neat, but that room seems out of place. I know there's another door leading from it to another room, so it's part of a larger building, but it just seems...weird.
Yep. Still a bit strange, as big windows like that with office areas behind them are usually reserved for inside, but adding the building up top helps.
I decided to mess around with CSGO mapping and made this small area. It's not really a conventional bombsite or mid, (I don't know which one of those it is yet,) but I'm hoping it will turn out not awful. We shall see?
It would probably look more natural if you removed the door and raised the window to waist height. Or gave the door a stoop/porch and reduced the size of the window.
