Element remade

Click here to download new updated version!

Edit: I'm looking to change 3 things to this map, but I'd love some feedback
1 - Change the sword to rockets
2 - Make the shotties Zero re-load
3 - Delete the turret and barrel thats next to it
Please let me know.

This map has been re-made as of February 14th.

Vantage Point (Element remade)

The following description is for the first version. I'll get a more accurate description up, but basically its an asymmetric map compatible with slayer, CTF, and Oddball. I've made significant updates to this map again. I deleted the dreaded 'suicide box' that was highly unpopular, and made jumping off of the "map" a little less harsh while still making it an area to avoid. There have been significant changes with weapon balance. Many of the power weapons/items have been deleted in order to make this a more tactical map. Each side has a shotgun, and there is a central sword and sniper, but otherwise its standard weapons with plenty of battle rifles. The invis and overshield have been deleted, and respawn times have been adjusted.I've given the attacker's base more protection in order to balance the two bases, and made some minor changes to smooth gameplay, and give more ledges, etc. throughout the map.

These pictures are for the first version. I'll get up some new pics within the week, but it does give you a decent idea of the map despite the changes....

Recommended 2-10 players

Supports Slayer, CTF, and Oddball game types.

This is a brand new map utilizing the new unlimited budget glitch for Foundry. I've probably spent 25-30+ hours on this thing, and cycled through several prototypes. It has two tower/bases with multiple access points, and a third platform connected to a base via a bridge. The bases are connected via a lower open area, or a series of tunnels underneath. There are several drop down shortcuts and ledges to surprise people with, and wide open areas as well. The weaponset is similar to the Pit, but the maps were originally inspired by Lockout. I've attempted to create a mechanism which mimics a floating base somewhat. The current map is open to tweaks.

All of the following pics are of the old version, but they still give a good idea of the map. I'll put up new pics as soon as I can.

View across the board from the 'Open Base' side. You can see a fair amount of fusion coils on the opposite side, and while it looks cool, I'm thinking about deleting some of these but would like some feedback first.

Actually, I'm not sure. I guess I should look into that, and thank the person. It was from Forgehub, so if that was you, then thank you....seriously.


Edit:
So, it looks like it was Blazen Nite. But, anyone who goes through the trouble of creating the unlimited budget maps deserves some credit!

So...when I went to add Capture the Flag, Oddball, etc., I realized that a few key pieces of the map were set to not spawn right away (particularly the Open Base platform). So, for those who've downloaded it, please let me know if this is true. Everything appeared normal under 'all gametypes,' but if I switched to anything else (including slayer) those items didn't spawn immediately. Let me know if that's whats happening when you DL it. Anyway, the map is being updated and I'll post it tomorrow. I fixed that glitch, made it playable with all gametypes, and made some minor changes (like deleting a handful of fusion coils).

Edit: After talking to some people who've DL'd it, there isn't a glitch....so feel free to DL it. I will be updating it soon with the new game types though.

The pics are all old, but I'll be getting new ones up soon.

Please DL, and let me know what you think. Thanks.
