1st CSS map.

It doesn't really have a Potato Field, but one of my friend once told me the terrain looks like one. Hence the name.

    **Pros:**

    - Nice small creative map, well designed
    - Nice tunnel system

    **Cons:**

    - You can see below the horizon of the skybox texture - use a 3D skybox or brushes to further block the view
    - Could have used better railing - those corners looked really ugly (did you consider using brushes rather than models?)
    - Optimisation work present (?) but could have been better
    - (Personal opinion) There is only one entrance to Bombsite B - not always ideal
    - No nav place names
    - Although an level overview was made - the .vmt file had an incorrect path meaning it would not work in-game (and is replaced with annoying pink and black squares instead)
    - Use of soundscape (or an ambient\_generic) present, but different sounds should have been employed between the outdoors and the tunnel area - I was disappointed to find out that you have decided to use the same sound for the whole map

    **Improvements:**

    - Eliminate Cons, fix that path in the .vmt

    **Notes:**

    - You should fix this map up before releasing another one, shame for this map to be left in its current state
    - 7/10, I like this map and would put it on my server if hadn't got for all the cons I listed above

    You had this in your .vmt:

    "UnlitGeneric"
    {
    "$translucent" "1"
    "$basetexture" "overviews/Tinymap_IG_V101"
    "$vertexalpha" "1"
    "$no_fullbright" "1"
    "$ignorez" "1"
    }

    Now:

    "$basetexture" "overviews/Tinymap_IG_V101"

    Should read:

    "$basetexture" "overviews/de_potato_field"

    You might already know it but picked the wrong file to the .rar?

    7/10

    Hi Logan. Thanks for trying out my map. Nor did I like the rails go with the look of the map. I just needed some rail, and that came up. I probably couldn't locate where a better rail would be. I just let it be. I shall try making a better-looking map next time which goes in harmony with each other. This was kind of my first map .... so .... *rolleyes*

    Looks more like an southern states swamp more than a potato field -- still not seeing that (Family of Potato farmers).

    Fancy railings don't really go with the industrial/concrete and steel of the rest of the textures.
