Surprise!

Beta 1. It's coming. Away goes the old, dreary theme of the map and in comes something bright, clean - and new.

I've distributed prerelease versions to a handful of people. Officially, Beta 1 should come out very shortly.

Now for the exciting bit: B4nny will be streaming, LIVE, running around & commenting on the prerelease build. No telling when exactly - but it's tonight, and it'll be during his stream. I know a lot of you might have varying opinions of him, but I figured it was a good way to give the map a little exposure and a little hype. Come visit when he goes live: https://www.twitch.tv/b4nny

Beta 1 coming shortly. Bet you didn't see that coming.

This looks lovely.(can lovely even apply to a game where the point is to murder in comic fashion?)
anyway, what is up with the fourth photo? it looks like it could be water, a part not in the map, or just a compare and contrast thing.

The screenshots remind of the aesthetic of Season in CS:GO, in a good way. Looks visually great, hopefully it's not too hard on people fps-wise.

Shouldn't be hard on people at all. I spent a LOT of time optimizing the map, so that things would render effectively and efficiently. If you're worried about it running like Sunshine does, it's much better than that - I promise. I've learned a lot.

So there's a bug where a texture in fences on 2nd is invisible because of the way I compiled - I'm on it, fixing it very soon. Compiling a b1a where the fences are fixed. Will be about 10 min.

Pretty fun map to play, though there were a few sightlines that were easily abused.

Mid was really easy to re-push if you had only lost one person because of the point on the low ground, no idea of what to do about that though.

You can walk on only part of the beam. That doesn't seem very obvious. Also make it more obvious you can't use those two doors. Like a prop in front of each.

Been pugging this for 2 hours or so now, very fun map. Nice and easy to push every point, potential for cool forward hold in lobby to bolster the harder to defend last point. It's looking fine.

Holy shit. Wish more custom maps would use these mirror's edge/CS colors. Maybe not every second map but certainly more interesting than the usual gritty construction site stuff.

as usual your detailing skills are unmatched =)

I especially like the last point, the lighting + plants are awesome!

Quick question : how much time did it took you to do this detailing from the previous version?

Could you change the way this area looks if you're not going to make it reachable? It's disturbing to me.

http://puu.sh/nIQlA/78200378af.jpg

Same thing over here, why block the access to this little spot?

http://puu.sh/nIQqk/c1eb82d08f.jpg

I can stand on this "tube" (don't know the word) but i cant go further forward because an invisible wall blocks me? Please, it's so incoherent :(( Make it visually coherent, if you dont want someone there, do like a building please :(

http://puu.sh/nIQMM/7848fb5eca.jpg

The purpose of the area I aim at is still obscure for me. If it could somehow link to the lobby without opening too big sightlines i'd be happy.

http://puu.sh/nIQSz/e0ae66bc5b.jpg

I think with your current 2nd point that pushing out of it will be extremely hard, because from this position it's possible to control every access, and because the exits (except under) are both very narrow. I'd suggest widening up the doorways.

http://puu.sh/nIR9e/1ea3934ed5.jpg

I think pushing from mid to second could also be very hard, because as the attacking team, it's very long to rotate between under, the left side, and the right side.

Keep up the good work!

Just had a playtest. Beautiful map.

I understand what you're going for with mid, but I think you need to seriously consider making the bridge portion of it cappable. It was really awkward trying to cap that point, and really counter intuitive. I think deeply recessed points are just not very good in general.

Also the lowers transition from mid -> second might be better served by just a single entrance on the 2nd side. There are quite a few entrances to 2nd in it's current form. Conversely, it's really chokey to get into 2nd from last, and it feels like there's no good place to stand while defending.
