    You may have wanted to use area portals (if you don't already). It might help the fps issue people are having. Also when on def when you come out the spawn the first time, Its hard to tell if you need to go right or left, I eventually found the sign pointing left, but i was kind of hidden behind the rocks when you first come out. (doesnt speak lound enough) Hope that helps :) I'll let you know more when I test it with a full server. http://tf2pro.com

    Pros: Excellent design, flows very well. Lots of different routes, but enough that your team can cover them all. Cons: FPS IS TERRIBLE. We still play this map all the time, but everyone complains about the horrid FPS, especially around 3 to 4. Improvements: Fix FPS issues Notes: We play this a lot b/c the gameplay is so good, fix the major FPS issues and we got a winner

    Pros: Very polished map. really like the lighting doesn't feel like the colors been washed out. Plays well/ balanced all classes Cons: Last section of map is very hard to finish, maybe add a tunnel that appears under the hut on the LHS so another paths exists, team can only enter area from RHS. Improvements: perhaps add another path near last cap point Notes: These comments are from playing the RC version which played well on a 24 slot server over numerous games. Only other concern was the size of it but I see you've compressed it.

    This is a wonderful map. It's seems like every time I play it the game goes a bit differently and that's a good thing! One thing I noticed is that the first ramp on the far left outside the blue spawn, (to the left of the tracks) is a bit of a pain to get up at times. There is lot's of stickiness going on there. Otherwise it's an awesome PL map. That last little stretch for blue is a pita but it's so satisfying when you win!!!

    Pros: Well, when I first jumped into a server with the alpha, I was a little disappointed, because I was hyped when I saw hoodoo in alpha, but this is just incredible! Big improvement! Textures look lovely, the layout is impressive, and gives an amazing amount of balance to the payload structure. Bravo! Cons: Improve on the skybox. Some awnings that seem like they aren't supposed to be stood on can be on the very tips. Improvements: See Cons. Notes: Amazing job, and I'd love to play this map anytime. Keep up the good work! :)

    Hey Youme, nice work. We all enjoy Hoodoo over on our servers, and we've played Halfacre a couple of times and I think the map is fairly balanced all the way though until the end. Very few times did anyone actually take the last point, I think maybe in 8 pushes through the level only 1 got through to the end. Most players were setting up sentries on the second floor behind the final control point and it's pretty hard for demomen or soldiers to take them out from that distance. I would suggest perhaps a set of stairs on the far left of the point leading up to the second floor or something similar--but you're a smart guy, you'll figure out what's best for your map. You know it better than anyone, anyway. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing future releases of your stuff!

    Pros: Great fun open map, it's kind of like the opposite and counterpart to hoodoo. If they were to be played consecutively, they would complement each other perfectly. Most detailed areas of the map look great, and the displacement work is fantastic. Cons: I know it's a beta, but it's essentially still in alpha, so it puzzles me why you've upgraded to beta an unfinished map. (I believed betas were for tweaking the near final versions of maps). One minor quibble, is that you've included old screenshots of A6, however, I don't think much has changed. A few areas are easily camped, such as the stairs that go from the opening area to the straight towards the second cap. The last warehouse area (with the two large doors), is immediately obvious to BLU (the tiny door that they can enter it through). Perhaps widen the entrance? Improvements: Finish the detailing! Notes: This map is fantastic fun, and although I do protest at its "unfinishedness", that's really what a beta is for. Right?
