Decided to get back on this with a completely new layout. We had a playlist today and I have learned a lot from it since I have never before made a cs_ map, so it was interesting to watch and see the results.
Here's the idea what i wanted to do:
Unlike the typical linear layouts i wanted to go vertical and make a 3 floor layout, where the hostages are at the "bottom - morgue" and "top" floor and the middle floor (where everyone starts) connects both of them.
I know a lot of people don't like vertical layouts because they can be really confusing (or scary since it's not a clover layout) i tried to make it as basic as possible tho with the last playtest i decided to go even more basic by removing that "ladder" entrance and shutting the whole path.This means that the only way for CTs to go down is via the garage -> elevator.The elevator will now be climbable so you can go out the way you came in.That also means the morgue will need changes with only 3 paths leading to it now.
Another thing i gathered from the playtest is that the people didn't like that the hostage zone because it was huge so i'll probably make it smaller but since i'm removing that ladder-path i might not really need to that (needs testing).
TL;DR layout will stay vertical with 3 floors, will remove the ladder path, the elevator will be climbable, hostage zone won't be so huge - this all might lead to more changes
If you have any other feedback, i'd appreciate it!
