Gravelpit and badlands combined with flung bots to airshot
I made this because to begin with, I was bored. The idea had been floating around, and then one day I just decided to make badlands_fling. So I made that, it was a bit badly done. Then I made Gravelpit_fling, which was much better done and more efficient. Then I thought. Hey, what's the point in having them in two maps? So I just put them together. Took a little tweaking, but now it works.
Gravelpit I'm happy with, apart from occasionally the signs become a bit mismatched and show the wrong ramp. However, badlands I'm planning to redo entirely and make it look actually like badlands, as before I copied only the bare essentials. I'm planning to copy the whole thing, optimise it a little and sort it out. Tell me of any places on gravelpit where the bots can stand freely without being teleported back, but badlands will be redone anyway.
Hope you enjoy it, I know it's not as good as real practice, but it's the closest you're gonna get on your own for now.
EDIT: I'm sorry guys, completely forgot about adding Valve to the credits. They're in there now, and it's quite clear that Valve created the maps, I only copied them and added in my ramps and the teleportation system and everything in. It's not intended to say that I'm a great mapper, it's a map there to help people practice. Calm down.
This is the BEST airshot practice map, but it would be great for the next version if you could include granary mid-point and maybe badlands mid-point, 1 jumping from across the map, and one from below the bridge.
Pros: Great practise map, since it's sort of well copied it really helps for real matches
Cons: Badlands Wall missing, no jump from behind or left
Improvements: A litte work on the Visuals, maybe some decoration / skyboxing (like you said in your description) and of course more jumps.
Maybe granary 3, badlands 3
Notes: I really hope there will be a next version !
Pros: Very good for practising airshots and the like. Feels like you're on the real map, so it's probably better too.
Cons: - No wall thing on the badlands section.
- Badlands has too fewer bots
- Pretty much the whole map is a resupply, which is bad if you want to practise ammo conservation and stuff like that.
Improvements: Maybe put 3/4 pairs of full health and ammo pickups near each point, instead of it resupplying you constantly.
Notes: Great map ;)
