    Welcome to America's small town, the apple in decay...
    Pics:



    Some features:
    Innocents Objective
    There's an airplane up in the sky.
    Pink Floyd music to select from.
    Sewer for alternative travel.
    It's already armed, you're welcome.
    Dynamic[ish] lights.
    Idea:
    Not entirely meant to be a Pink Floyd map, which explains why the walls aren't white washed masonry. The music helps add map appeal and gives a good title, as well as a nice way to tribute whatever I listened to while making it. The map is actually themed off the lost american small town. Many towns like the one depicted dotted the U.S. before the mills that provided their income packed up and went overseas, leaving them to deteriorate much like this one has.
    The Map
    Garrysmod.org link coming soon, it just won't work for me tonight though.

    Any criticism will contribute to new maps, but unless this one has a fatal bug (like Hendrix did, still working on that...), I won't be making any newer versions of it.
    There are some things I know are wrong like displacement errors, I'm at peace with my bad displacement abilities.
    Any info or something else you'd like to say, feel free to email ficusmapping@hotmail.com.

    The map itself is pretty well made aside from the displacement errors outside of the map, though you seem to be aware of those.

    Does the objective just consist of the 4 tasks in the schoolhouse (electricity, plumbing, production, fear of the lord)? If so, it's pretty easy and can be completed within a few minutes. I'm assuming it leads to an instant win for the innocents, though I was unable to check as I was using ttt_debug_preventwin_1 to test the map (in single player)

    As far as the map layout goes, personally I think it's a bit too open for TTT and would most likely be a bit difficult for traitors. The only decent sized building is the factory, the various little homes are too small to be of much use. Keep in mind that I haven't actually played it yet, I'll be sure to test it out for real tomorrow.

    One last question: How do you get on the roof of the factory? I noticed that there was a deagle, scout, and a turtle on the roof though I wasn't able to find any way up aside from using noclip.

    Very nice. I was thinking as I looked at the screenshots that it reminded me of Pink Floyd.

    Did someone say Pink Floyd?

    This still looks a great map.

    Well, yea the objective is those 4 things, but I figure with maps like ttt_the_thing having 4 simple bombsites to destroy the map, and still people don't finish it every round, it should be fine. Things like the water valve take a long while to twist open, so the idea is Traitors will need to stop the Innocents from completing that, and it does spin back to start if let go of.

    Yea the map is pretty small, but I guess that means you could vote for it on a slower day with less people. And since maps as open as crummy cradle get voted for time and time again I figure it won't be too big of a problem.

    The_thing's objectives are completely different though. Most servers consider the TNT objective to be traitorous (which leads to you being killed/possibly banned for RDM if you're innocent) as it results in killing most of the server. The actual traitor objective underground is much harder to pull off due to requiring more items which aren't always easy to find (and half of the time the bodies seem to not work for some reason).

    Personally I hate crummy cradle due to how big/open it is, how easy it is to RDM (via discombob/invisible fire), and how most rounds result in someone scouting/other people camping inside of the buildings. Your map doesn't have any of said issues though (aside from being a bit open, though it's nothing like crummy cradle) and would probably work out on a 16-slot server.

    Garrysmod.org has decided is will not take my map and must 404, every time.

    Does anyone actually care if it's on there?

    Also Elfbarf I do appreciate the time to consider the map, I hope you enjoyed it overall.
