[WIP-b2] KOLOSSUS

This map is designed to have somewhat industrial looking bases with server rooms being 4-way connected to a central arena with a sculpture that boosts you in any direction (ramp or slide).
Under the sculpture is a warpzone that ports you into the sky above itself so you can utilize the sculpture even better. (For some reason the warpzone turns you by 180°)

It has dedicated spawnrooms and no respawntimer.

Thanks to anyone who already gave feedback via discord making this map much better. More feedback is always apprechiated. Smile (How's the gameplay and the item placement?)

Ok now beta-2 with proper lighting, new item placement and custom rifle balance:

Damage: 80 -> 35
Refire: 1.2 -> 0.8
Force: 100 -> 20
Reload: 2s -> 1.6s
Clipsize: 80->64
Ammo/shot: 10->8
Secondary is now zoom.

Now it has slightly lower dps than vortex, by dealing less damage but shooting faster to compensate for the penetration and giving a different alternative to the vap. This should provide a counter to the vortex that shoots through walls whereas vap doesn't.
With these settings the rifle does 35 dmg/s in a reload cycle while doing 43.75 dmg/s without reloading.

My goal was to give the rifle a real purpose and a different feel than just being a better looking vortex that uses bullets.

Would you consider making it DM playable as well? I know it's designed for TDM/CTF but DM allows people to explore it with ease.

Generally, it's a good idea not to make CTF maps compatible with DM, as their duplicated design is very redundant and oversized outside of teamplay modes (especially when the team colors are so prominent).

Well it's really designed for teamplay hence the spawn-rooms. Imagine DM players batteling in the spawnrooms without even leaving. To counter this I'd have to find spawns within the map but the weapons are positioned with teamplay in mind and as Mario said it would feel redundant while I'd see the prominent team color even as helpful in terms of making it less redundant.

Also it's designed to get you to higher speeds than usual and having paths that allow you to maintain it. But I fear in DM it would lose it's flow when people are fighting in the long hallways or the bases where's not that easy to build speed so people would be split by the symmetric bases. (still need some playtesting to be sure)

It's not that easy here. I have considered making a cts/race parcour to show ppl some routes they might not be aware of as far as I planned/found them.

But if you want/can you can edit it to your liking but keep in mind I'm still changing/adding stuff when I got time.
