Well I've been posting it around the net a bit and even have my own 24/7 server already, so I figured I would post the same info here.
Here is my first attempt at a map in Hammer. I am doing a CTF map for TF2 and just wanted to send out some early shots. It's not anywhere near done, but it's out there for people to test. I have posted it to FPSbanana.com.
The texture work in the shots provided is not done...I know some of it is messy, but I wanted to share what I have been working on and get some initial thoughts. Prop work is light and some of the brush work is not done (roof tops need some work). Also, I think I have like 5-6 lights placed aside from the ambient env light...just another FYI. Lighting needs work. Shadows need to be higher res.
Map Gameplay Thoughts: This is a small, tight map intended to encourage massive carnage in the middle (on the bridge). Many sniper and turret locations possible here. Battles should be decided quickly OR well positioned teams may need to hunker down for a long fight full of gibblets galore. Beta testing will see if this holds true.
Download it and let me know what you think!
