Hey,

I have started working on a map a while ago to get some experience with the editor and to learn more about creating multiplayer maps. I thought this contest might be a good motivation to get back at the map and start working on it again. 

I really like the look and feel of Aztec and that is the direction I am going for. So the map takes place in some old temple ruins in a jungle.

Here is a link to the Steam workshop:

Feedback and help is appreciated :)

Here are things that I think will not play well:

  • The ladder that brings T's onto the platform on A site makes it so that CT's can headshot T's climbing it very easily while they are defenseless. Maybe move the ladder around the corner and extend the platform with it?
  • The CT's take ~17 seconds to rotate through their spawn from site to site. I think this is a little bit too long, especially for such an exposed rotate. Cache has a similar risk level CT spawn rotate that only takes ~10 seconds or 12 if you want to go to tree room. I would suggest that you shorten the highlighted routes to fix this: c87fb20938c50699.jpg.bbd6f0df52ae781c59296d8c5b2f8d6c.jpg.166f178db52949e7647cc426dc49871b.jpg
  • The red lines in the picture above are just 2 super long sight lines that I found that may cause awps to dominate the chokepoints.
  • Everything seems a little too blocky. Try cutting some corners off the brushes to soften things
  • I have a lot more feedback but it would take up a page. If you really want we can start a match and I'll fly around and show you what I mean.

This was done on purpose. Kinda like a high risk/high reward position. But I totally get your point and I am also not 100% happy with it.

Sounds reasonable. I am going to look into it.

I have not yet really paid much attention to those kind of things. Only occasionally. Thanks for pointing out. That is something I am going to keep in mind for sure.

Yea well thats because its still just a blockout 😅. I wanted to get the layout right first and then pay more attention to make it look better.

Whoa, you would really take your time and do that?
I mean, I didnt even expect that much feedback you already gave me, but that would be really awesome.

Its no  problem for me, I like seeing maps improve. The layout is the skeleton, might as well make sure its good right?

I did a quick blockout of the kind of angles I'm talking about:

Just use a few reference photos, they will go a long way
