Badlands Beta


After a long time, a very ambitious map is finally released. Introducing: Badlands Beta.
Recreated in painstacking detail to be as close to the original as possible.
Note: this is a mix between Badlands and its leaked counterpart to improve gameflow.

- classic TF2 theme
- overhauled entire area of badlands including interiors
- based on pre-2007 renders by Stephane Gaudet
- 3 CP powerhouse gamemode (originally ctf)
- 3 references
- original pre-2007 textures (fixed)
- original pre-2007 models (fixed)
- 1 hint at my next big project

1. Open up your Console (~)

2. Type in "map workshop/1269002293" (without the quotation marks)

3. DONE!

PJX - Mapping, core testing, fixing
Princess Fluffy - testing, feedback
Mittens - testing, gameplay feedback
Bonk Nickeltoon - testing, texture fixing, crashing issue reporting
Stephane Gaudet - original renders of ctf_badlands
Valve - 2fort's texture pool
Badlands's interior geometry to improve gameflow

ALSO- I wish I had put this in the last comment but I just realized:
Your sun is pointed the wrong way! Look at your comparison screenshots, in the original the sun was pointed in the opposite direction.

Okay, so now I've actually downloaded the map. Here be some handy dandy feedback:

Missing texture on a couple of guns (This and the tranquilizer gun) -

Really obvious seam-

In fact, there's like dozens of less significant seams, as well-

This window looks super weird-

Oh, also, when I tried playing this map with bots my game crashed. Although I do use a couple of mods, so that might just be me.

I think it would've worked better if you had made it a CTF map like how Badlands was in TFC, rather than trying to cram the 5cp gamemode onto a map that isn't built for it. But for what it is, this is spectacularly well done.

my guess is borderlands or something related to the saint lewis arch

found the hint and i love the art design has the rough badlands theme of TFC but the cartoonishness of TF2 in one map

Will this ever be useable in SFM?

damn this is awesome. a few months back i was going over old TF2 concept art and thinking to myself that it would be really nice to play through a map like this. it has so much character, along with all of the other super early maps. i definitely prefer this aesthetic over the current badlands.
