    Build 2311 - New Maps!

    Hey folks,

    A small build this time around, just pulling in the latest batch of community maps and a single fix!

    [​IMG]
    Some maps are a little more quirky, like 4zk's Rorschach - but there are plenty of more standard maps as well.

    There are new maps in the "big 3" modes.

    TDM:
    • Added bunnie_Korwin_Mikke

    • Added Cohen_Sanctuary
    • Added Lavaguy678_Peanut
    • Added mcrifel_Ruin
    CTF:
    • Added 4zK_Rorschach
    • Added 4zK_Stubs
    • Added 8x_BBiscuit
    • Added 8x_Grounds
    • Added Fuzzle_Stale
    • Replaced Punk123_toothgrinderx with Punk123_toothgrinderx2
    • Added Punk123_SkinnedCastle
    • Added Punk123_PrincessCity

    • Added SJD360_Abrogation
    • Added Skinney_Descent
    • Replaced SJD360_Overdose with SJD360_Overdose2

    TTH:
    • Added 8x_HawksCieza

    Please leave your feedback in the appropriate place so that map authors and moderators can get a handle on community sentiment and so we can remove any problem maps.

    We're looking to take a more "seasonal" approach to maps if we keep getting this high level of interest in mapping. The CTF mapcycle in particular is very large now (relative to game length) and we think that perhaps mixing up the cycle more regularly and maintaining a smaller pool of active maps could be most enjoyable going foward. We're open to opinions on this idea of course!

    Thanks to all the map moderators and to all who submitted maps! Congratulations as well to those who got maps in game.

    Have fun!

    I'd rather just have a bunch of maps.

    By a bunch I mean OVER NINE-

    It sounds good on paper but then youd never get to replay the ones you find really fun.

    got to test out rorschach, played out really nicely, a relatively short but tight game all the way to the end

    We'd (hopefully obviously) like to avoid people having to skip large parts of the vanilla map pool if we can help it, especially as vote-spamming is seen as an niusance by a lot of people.

    We'd rather not celebrate the soviets, especially as MM is Polish. As much of a communist as I am it just doesn't seem like a good idea, but if you really need something that looks the part you could probably make believe with the chinese flag, as it's pretty close to how the soviet flag would end up at this resolution anyway.
