    ---------------------

    Arid is a CTF map by Frazer Grant, for the TF2Maps.net Major Mapping Contest #4.
    It features:
    • Hydro's Environment Settings
    • "Normal" CTF Play
    • Smaller than most maps
    • Clipping

    No Cubemaps

    Spawn Time is the default hammer gives you. It is meant for fast gamepaly, and quick caps. Built for competitive play.
    The theme of the map is Hydro's in a more run down environment at around mid-day.

    ---------------------
    Images - NOTE: Old Images from the first alpha, haven't gotten round to updating them
    Spoiler: Reveal






    ---------------------
    Thanks To:
    Tom "zpqrei" Pritchard - help and support

    Rexy - for the sexy pack of alternative rocks.

    Good stuff It's up on the Map Lab. We'll be sure to have some testing soon Plus it will feature in the Tourney - once were organised (Personally i'm having trouble doing anything but sit in hammer )

    by the way, feel free to [img] tag things round here - and if you think you'd rather people didn't have to download them every click, you can always use the [spoiler] tag round them

    The Image links are more to do with myself, and my teeny tiny 1024 x 768 screen.

    Biggest kudos for being able to use hammer at that resolution! I don't think I could (I tried on my netbook)

    Sorry about that guys, my bad. And meh, 1024x768 isn't that bad. I've never had much bigger anyway (My two old laptops had a 1280x720 and 1366x768 - which is basically just widescreen )

    Re: CTF_Arid [TF2M Contest Entry]

    So, should some signage and cover work?

    I want your guys opinions on this as well:



    It's a shorter more direct route from your base to the enemy intel, however I feel this may make caps even quicker, and I'm not sure about that S:

    I don't think it needs to be quicker.
    What about a second floor, with some kind of vent to the intel?
    Or an underground passage under the tower in the middle

    I could make it one way, by raising that bit up (outside). So to get up you'd have to be FaN Scout, Demo or Soldier.

    I'm holding off on any /major/ layout changes for now until I can get another 6v6 testing.
