    So, after making a thread for gathering good tips and ways to make up a layout. A user conviced me to post sketches to this place. So, I'm giving this a shot.

    It's a bird-view sketch of the map.

    I hope so you''ll understand and being able to see the sketch, pictured with my mobile. Cheap way.

    What's your opinion on this?

    PS: Shouldn't we create a sub-forum for WIP/sketches of layouts? I think it would be great and this sub-forum won't be flooded of these. Otherwise you can say which sub-forum is the best place for these. So, I'll remember that.

    Thanks.

    Its hard to tell from a top down view but it seems like you have plenty of alternate routes. All I can recommend is to keep the routes simple. I know its only a draft but it looks a little confusing in terms of paths to take just because I see lots of door spaces.

    As I have learned recently keep long drawn out hallways out. Keep the map flowing you don't want players running into dead ends. Three to "possibly" 4 routes are a good idea. Plenty of high and low area's to give your map some depth. Remember that sketches don't always turnout that way.

    spacing and variety is good. too much complexity between 2nd and mid. attacking mid after losing it is too difficult. love the sketch tho and I think it's a great start. map it!

    I'm also looking for a fitting name for that map.
    The middle point is a gaspipe pump and flow-control house. The 2nd is the Blu's/Red's depot, with few aztecic ruins as cover, outside their HQ. Like I mentioned in the sketch, the 3rd is the HQ, which is a spybase inside a temple. and the point is placed on a elevator in a stadium like area.

    I currently have a placeholder name for it, cp_aztec. Not so very fitting in my opinion.

    And thanks for the feedbacks!

    .... and I got a picture of the middle in it's current state.
