    I need you guys' opinion on this particular conundrum, my will is nowhere near strong enough.

    Ramp and stairs combined:

    Or full ramp:

    Them both together looks pretty ugly.

    do half stairs half ramp but make it look nicer than that. have the stairs sort of embedded in the ramp, I'll see if I can find an example in a valve map.

    Keep the stairs+ramp bit but make the ramp part only about 8 or 4 units wide.

    Stairs should be sunken in relation to the ramp, rather than raised. They will also look better if made the proper size, they are way too big in that picture.

    If you make your stair's steps lower and even in size, they would probably look a lot better together with the ramp. However, simply making it a ramp should also work well. Why can't you make them 100% stairs though?

    The idea is that it's a shipping dock; full stairs wouldn't make much sense for dragging up heavy crates.

    Would look better with railings either side of the stairs imo.

    maybe a hovercraft for those walking impaired? :)

    which got me to thinking. the pyro should be able to use the airblast as a double jump of sorts...oh the possibilities

    I remember when it came out they were thinking about it but scrapped it because it "didn't work like you'd think it would".
