CP_Mannbase

Current Version: B8b

Thanks:
Cuba for the blue side asteroid props
VelvetFistIronGlove for the 2D skybox
InvalidNick for the dewm texture and decals pack
And everyone else that has given me the motivation to continue working on this (alt, catfish, kake, jen, tricka all the people in test.co and my pug group)

Mannbase Alpha (cp_mannbase) has been a project of mine since late 2019. I started working on it by biting off more than I could chew for my skill level at the time, but I believe the map is now at a playable state that maybe it deserves it's own tftv thread.

Please leave feedback, please pug it, run around it with your friends on a private server, record yourselves shitting on this map while sitting in discord idc

Crisp visual design wrapped in an outerspace theme with a clean gameplay loop, I especially adore the bright walls for easier target acqusition.

Looking forward to seeing where the map goes from here!

I've been playing too much magic because my first thought was this being named "Mana Base"

Just uploaded a somewhat unfiltered blind runthrough with thoughts scattered throughout. It's a bit lengthy but overall I feel it's fine for such a wide open map, where normally a wide open map would have some issues.

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/591750467

TL;DW, add a dropdown to second from the lobby room between mid and 2nd, lower the height of the pallet in front of the door leading into lobby (from second, to allow soldiers to do a cool bomb I attempt), small clipping issues scattered throughout, add ammo packs to mid, maybe change the size or location of the mini pack behind the small houses on mid, make the clipping of the solar panels completely flush so soldiers don't accidentally shoot between the cracks, push the last point closer to the middle of the area, adjust the distance of the spawn doors accordingly.

I see a lot of potential for it in a pugtest. Sniper could be a little too strong on last defense.

Thanks for the in depth feedback, very useful and reasonable :)

You're right the drop down would be very interesting but it did actually exist around a9 or a10 but was deemed too op for attackers. Will definitely reconsider.

With the amount of ground needed to cover from that entrance, I didn't think it would be quite that powerful, but it definitely feels empty without it

Second runthrough was short enough, everything genuinely feels ready and in place. There's some awkward clipping with the solar panels on mid, both the wall and a spot where you actually can stand for some reason (very finnicky). Last feels awkward to push from the right side, since the point is so far away, and it's a blind corner. Potential fixes there to make each entrance feel viable, and honestly it might be ready to roll to the next phase.

Welcome to beta!
Screenshots

These change logs are really low effort but the map has gone through many more changes. Also the map has been massively optimised.

Middle:
Improved clipping on solar panels

Second:
Alot
Staircases to spire changed
Detailing
Much easier to sack in second (hopefully)
Catwalk closed off
Main raised to help attackers into second out of last

Last:
Point centralised (ish)
More detailing

Refinements and detailing
Most of this update is fixing issues that people had with b3a and adding in some extra stuff.
I am looking for feedback on the transition area from choke to second.

Detailing
• Added a dome to the map (modelled and textured by /dev/zero), may be disorientating/unpleasant but would like feedback on the theme.
• Changed sun
• Lighting improvements

Spawns
• Last spawns moved more to the right to help rolling out right side
• Middle forward spawns moved backwards to stop accidental opening of the door.

Middle
• Capture zone extends below the point
• Mini health pack on perch’s
• Shack and barrels have been moved to decrease the power of sightlines from the new room on middle.

Second
• Given attackers into second from quake room high ground

Last
• Flank side improved for holding
• Improved detailing
• Added catwalk on the wall above under
• Added window to lower
• Added high ground behind the point
• Increased height of wall flank side
• Added a platform on combo side

Middle Flank
• Added an open window that players can use to enter the new room. (Intended to help players to stop flanks)
• New raised platform for detailing/gameplay detailing.

Choke
• New raised platform intended to help pushes through choke, whether pushing into second or middle.

Quake Room
• Decreased the amount of doors into second to 2
• Made traversing the room easier
• Doors are larger to stop meds getting forced

Catwalk
• Added Jump pad modelled, animated, and textured by /dev/zero
• Moved health pack

Window Room
• Added second floor for detailing purposes, makes the room slightly (very slightly) more choke-ish
