I see in your readme that the map is intended for Infiltration. I've never played the mod, so I can't really comment how well it works with that. For regular deathmatch, the flow would be greatly improved if items were moved so players could get them without having to climb the furniture and such. You might be able to get away with increasing collision radius on some of the items, if you still want to keep stuff on tables.
I've moved a quite a bit of it off tables and chairs, but not all of it. The hard to reach ones that were on shelves I've made a bit easier to get to. I wanted to keep health vials a bit more out of the way.

I might make a domination version as well.

EDIT: Removed file because it was superseded.

Alright, here's my final submission for the contest.

As Porch Viking had suggested, I ended up moving more weapons and ammo off the furniture. I made most of the mover doors just static open because it was just way too annoying otherwise. I added numbers for each of the offices to hopefully help with navigation (Facing the reception desk in the lobby, offices are numbered clockwise from that position if you start going left).

I didn't have time to make a domination version, but I might do that as a bonus map, if that's allowed.

Here's an album, for those that didn't download it, in case you're interested: https://imgur.com/a/pZLnyd1

I didn't have time to mess with the AI pathing further, but I'm fine with how they play now. Since I'll be out doing things tomorrow, I did some final tweaks and wrapped up my entry here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13638#p116436

Submitting the map now, gonna add the screenshots after work. I can't believe we made it on time, hope you enjoy the Unreal '95 theme ;)

Huge thanks again to Ghostwheel (aka Indyskyz aka Mr. Real), Jigoku, Xaleros and PsyXander for all their help, without all of them this map wouldn't be possible. Finally, thank you RoninMastaFX, this guy is a friggin trooper lol

EDIT: holy crap didn't even know that Google Drive thingy is a thing LMAO :mrgreen:

EDIT2: Pics added!

I left a bit too much work for weekend, necessary quality fixes:

- Moved rocket launcher and flak cannon to more accessible spots
- Replaced the custom city building texture with stock one, this should fix the hd texture packs bug
- Reduced geometry in the passage under the sniper room, it's dark anyway
- Added a collider so players can't translocate out of the map
- Added alternate paths for bots
- Resorted brushes and went through every room and made sure that there are no more holes

I've checked every room, I hope there are no more bugs

damn! not done yet - i ran out of time - so i'm out :) so hopefully "CTF-20AC-eXP" will arrive as a bonus map - time allowing.

*** Thought about submitting one of my nearly done beta maps instead, like fallen angel, liandri towers, or one of a dozen others
but decided no, i won't do that because it wouldn't be fair to the mappers that created new maps for the contest...

Good luck to contestants! Looks like a great bunch of maps so far!!!

Cheers

Checked, only the zip didn't have the prefix, the map does.


Anyways, Contest deadline has ended, the poll will open soon. Well done to the finishers.

Please submit the bonus maps until 22nd of December :tu:
