cp_alamosa_a4

(thanks for the feedback everyone, I looked into making the ramps in lobby non-symmetrical... going to take more of a rework than just a quick move because of how the ramps line up towards underneath / vertical clearance. Maybe later if it's a big deal)

#1 cp_alamosa (5cp) in Map Discussion

Been messing around with a 5cp map idea for a little while now. Decently happy where it's at design wise at this point, interested to hear what people think.

Not 100% sold on the name yet (shocker).

#493 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

cp_logjam_rc7pre5

Last pre rc7 version.

I'm not 100% sold on changing the rocks on mid to huts, but I wanted to at least give it a shot. Hopefully some of you guys can get a PUG or something organized and let me know if it's a better change or not before rc7 official comes out.

Changes:
-raised the bridge over choke and clipped it more aggressively
-replaced the big rock on mid with a shed that is better used for high ground
-fixed a floating block of concrete at last
-Fixed a broken displacement on second by spire
-fixed some several year old z-fighting on saw room exterior.
-fixed some broken trim at 2nd that was eating splash

#8 favorite map theme? in Map Discussion

I'm taking notes, I have two maps that need theming...

I love the classic TF2 dustbowl / badlands vibe, just nostalgic for the game... there are tons of cool custom vibes out there too though.

Huge thanks to Ozfortress for putting koth_waterton in their Midsummer Night's Cup 2019 #1! Very excited to see how the map plays with a bit more serious play than just PUGs. Would love to hear any and all feedback anyone has after as well!

cp_logjam_rc7pre4

https://tf2maps.net/downloads/cp_logjam.3835/history

Based on a bit of feedback, tweaked logroom one more time... differences from rc7pre3:
- Made the lower exit on mid a bit wider
- Changed the geometry to be more like the old with a ramp instead of the drop off in the hut on mid
- Raised the roof above the new higher part of logroom
- Replaced a bunch of trim
- Removed a hilarious roamer spot that was a glitched out roof in logroom

#491 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

Yes! That would be rad. I'm thinking of trying one more version with a slight change to logroom, probably the last rc7pre version before rc7.

Also it's post #491, so here's a picture of my babe 491 (I helped restore this at my last job):

cp_logjam_rc7pre3

Download: https://tf2maps.net/downloads/cp_logjam.3835/history

Changes:
Logroom is different - adjusted the flow, sightlines, height to make it a more dynamic flank and make it more viable to push through either way.
Made the concrete blocks at the corners of mid slightly smaller to allow logroom's change.
Fixed the damn issue with blue last capping wrong.
Made last cap slightly faster.

#487 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

Yeah clipping that rock has always been a pain. I'm not sure what the right solution is, if it's unclipped it feels like you should be able to get onto it easily but you really can't... I'll mess with it.

I did finally figure out what was causing the HUD issue at blue last - there were two capture areas for blue last, one at red last and one at blue last... oops. People who are better mappers than me probably have a group set up for there important game entities (control points, spawn rooms, doors, etc.) that they can turn off when they go to copy the whole map half over to make changes from one side to the other happen, but I haven't managed to do that in 5 years... lol.

Still toying with logroom. Came up with a decent idea to keep the old door position as I'm not 100% sure how the shutter will work out. Pics below. Only concern is the sightline in the last pic, but I think shrinking the big concrete pad in the corner of mid and then moving the door to the right so it's behind the log pile in log room would fix that pretty easily.

#485 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion
sage_Actually like this change a lot, should give soldiers more of a chance, I appreciate how openly you take feedback. This may be fixed (I don't have tf2 installed to check right now) But in the version i looked at a week or so ago the concrete slab on last is hovering about a unit off the ground. I forgot to mention this in my nerd text wall. absolutely of no gameplay significance but thought you might like to know.

Appreciate that bit as well, I wouldn't be shocked if it is... lol.

I think we'll probably try this version and hopefully play a couple pugs or something on it to see how it feels. I'm not 100% sold on the shutter / door location on mid, but I really am liking how logroom itself is looking now.

I try to listen to all feedback that I can. I made mistakes when Logjam was in ETF2L where I tried to implement literally everything everyone said partially to please people and partially because I didn't know any better.

I think I know better (at least a bit!) now, so I will listen to what anyone has to say and try to understand where it comes from and talk through it with others before committing to the change. Hopefully you guys keep Logjam in for next season so we can see how the changes stack up.

If anyone wants to dance around on the new logroom and see how it kinda lines up in game, here's the DL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/t1du3ti3s8yzyr2/cp_logjam_rc7pre2.bsp?dl=0

Do note that this version has no clipbrushes, and the new logroom is only on the red side.

THE VICIOUS DOUBLE POST

I was thinking about both points #1 and #2... decided to mess with logroom a bit. Curious for opinions. The new design idea involves moving one of the doors on mid and making it a shutter (harder to see people coming, allowing them closer to the high ground), and changing the inner geometry of logroom making it easier to push further towards 2nd and actually own the flank without getting forced out.

#1: is actually something interesting I haven't heard before. I'll look into what I can do. I -might- be able to snip a little bit of size out of mid overall, it might just be a pain...

#2: I think the changes to cave have helped this quite a bit. I do think there's more improvements that need to happen in logroom (right flank) - I'm just not entirely sure what they are still.

#3: I heard this from a number of people, and I have literally no clue why that happens. I think it's ok now?

The slab is actually roughly the same size as the boxes were (maybe 25% bigger?) the reason I went for the slab over the boxes was for better splash, the boxes were crap in that regard.

#480 cp_logjam (5CP) in Map Discussion

After talking to a fair amount of people from Ozfortress about the map, it seems that the summary of most of the issues fall into these categories:

1. Things that RC5 did wrong that since have been fixed with RC6, or at least made better in RC6 to the point where we would need to test again
2. "This maps because the first time I walked around on it was 5 minutes before our match" which, unfortunately seems to be a constant issue in league play. Certainly not true of everyone, but quite a few people.

I did get one cool suggestion that I decided to try, so here's rc7pre1:
