Flagrun Suggestions

So I'm pretty far along with the design work for Flagrun (sketches and layouts) and I have a good foothold for brushwork and theme so far.

The size is going to remain pretty much the same, and the theme will be middle eastern/desert in a de_dust kinda way. I've got a planned rode running through the town and I have some pretty interesting asthethic changes planned or implemented that don't alter the gameplay of the map at all.

However, I'm interested to know before I get nitty and gritty with further brushwork what the community would change about the map if they could.

Would anyone suggest the addition of an extra hallway anywhere? Or the removal of one? Stuff like that... I'm just trying to get an overall perspective about what the TFC population thought about the map and what they liked/disliked. Thanks!

Hoo boy, flagrun... now THERE'S a map I have not played in a while...

Well shit... I gotta say, it would be nice to have like a sort of "flag indicator" (sort of like cap point indicator) in the spawn showing which flags are held by your team, the other team, or neutral.

And yeah... maybe somethin' cool for the neutral flags. The lockup idea in the previous one was alright but something better can be cooked up I am sure.

Make it not suck. Because the TFC version sucked.

I'm having a hard time putting my finger on just why that was though.

The first spawn was too far from the base and the base was too far from the second cap. The whole map needs to be made smaller so the fighting is more intense and its more exciting with a lot less walking.

Sorry to bring a thread up from the dead. I just found my 99% complete Flagrun map. For any of you guys who were around 3 years ago when I was making it, should I finish it or give it away??? Basically I'm asking: Do people still play this game and if so should I put the time and effort into finishing it?

Well if it's over 90% finished, then I'd say finish it if you have the time.
