pl_fifthcurve_rc1 - 5 control point payload map!

This is a new version of one of the older maps that i did few years back. I asked some feedback about the original one at that time from Valve and i got it. It was pretty detailed decription on what was wrong in the map. This was also few years back. After receiving it, I used that information to make the map better, but only in the past 6 months or so i realised that the 2nd release that i made back then wasn't really quite right there.

So long story short, i wanted to make it better and this is the third version of the map. In this one, i've made major changes towards making it better, more fluent to play and cutting off routes that are difficult for players to parse and move forth and back. Overall, when we add the old maps pl_curve and pl_5curve alltogether, it has become the pl_fifthcurve (currently _rc1).

I want to thank everyone who has been playing those maps in the past, showing me the things that were still wrong in them and giving me ideas on how to improve. I'm still interested on your feedback! So please if you have something to add, say, suggest, anything of the sort, don't hesitate to say it out loud. Thanks!

special thanks:
Hakk1tus - Building cubemaps to older versions
DrShush - Early testing
WeryBigMonk - initial testing, cubemap testing
othername - initial testing
Everyone who played - thanks!

I would recommend putting the playtest command in the descriptions for every further new map you make so that i wont have to keep asking you. Either way what do i need to type?

I guess time will tell. I do hope that this would be accepted, as it is a solid map played among many servers already. Thanks for your thoughts!

This map exists as halloween version, Brimstone in the game. Valve folks havent seen fit to add this one to the game, despite many people liking it. Its very old map, almost 10 years or so. Pier was even older and that got added last christmas. There could perhaps be still hope to this one. Thanks.

Wish this map was added to the game. I played it recently on and it was the most fun i've had on the game in years. Sadly noone votes for it.

Cool map but sniper sightlines are a bit too oppressive even by payload standarts. First can be a pain in the ass to push because the part where the cart rolls back immediatly right next to the point I suggest removing that because sometimes red just ditches the first area and goes super heavy on the defense in the area right behind first while trying to get blue off the cart with airblast and sentry knockback. As long as they don't let blue reach the point they can easily hold first like this.
Third point also lacks a proper flank route. Lastly there's a small visual bug in the first area if you stand on top on the blue container as sniper and scope in on the blue spawn door on the opposite side you can see 2 white vents while scoped in but you can't see them while in regular vision.

I just released an update to the map. The RC1 version was sitting on my disk for over 3 years. I was busy so i didnt get to it untill now.

However, while i was at it, i was told from a couple of issues within the map. Its currently part of community update, so i wanted to get those fixed as soon as possible. Changelog here:

Have fun!

This is a solid working map so naturally i would like to see it in the game and played more. I've spend a lot of time and effort to make it better over the years and tested it a lot with actual players with full server.

Maybe you should mail to Valve and tell your opinion. It might help!

Do you think this will be like Sunshine, where we get the halloween version before the regular one, and this one will be released in the Pyro update? That's what i'm hoping.
