Dropbox 18.4MB .7z

TF2maps 20.1MB .zip

This release mainly addresses map issues.

cp_axle_a4a change log:
Fixed Blu's forward-forward spawn locking on back cap.
Removed excess signage to conform with Valve's 5cp signage theory.
Added minor details (trees and select point_lights).
Added collisions to server boxes at final CP's.
Added gate to ventilation shaft drop down at final CP's (prevents fall damage).
Increased mid capture time by 12.5% (from 8 seconds to 9).
Increased light in some RED areas.
Player clipped several exploitable ledges.
Player clipped BLU scaffold.
Player clipped spytech fences.
Rotated main spawn room 45 degrees to reduce player orientation confusion.
Added small ammo pack in BLU base (previously missing).

Also, custom material (swamp vine) should now be packed.

Map should be up on:

TF2maps - 174.34.133.100:27500 Dallas, Texas, US
TF2maps - 85.234.148.93:29015 London, England

_a3 is on:

But _a4 should be up soon.

cp_axle_a5c released.

In an effort to distinguish areas i've started to add unique details to specific areas of the map. If you feel like it, you can call this "the tire room".

Change log:

Added third route to CP2
Added third route to CP3
Added ramp to first floor of outter CP2 area.
Combined primary spawn and changed orientation.
Changed orientation of spawn positions in tertiary spawn.
Added minor details.
Fixed buggy vent grate.
Implemented minor optimisation by putting fade distances on the larger props, shortened fog and implemented a far z-clipping plane (5120 units).

If there are no complaints i will go to Beta in my next release.

I think there needs to be more saturation in some of the lighting. The warm lighting looks kinda washed out from here.

Washed out? I'm not sure i follow your meaning. I could maybe utilise lanterns in the tunnel so the light are less white...

Here's cp_axle_b2d: TF2maps.net 23.4MB bz2

cp_axle_b2 changes:
CP1 caps 50% slower
CP2 caps 33% slower
Moved CP1 bridge over capture area making it easier to attack
Removed accessible ventilation duct at CP1
Increased width of middle area
Re-orientated 3rd spawn more appropriately
Added minor detail to CP's 2, 3 and 4
Added detail to 3dskybox
Added small health to middle's high ground
Fixed some clipping issues

cp_axle_b2d changes:
Fixed ammo imbalance at CP2
Fixed some lighting conditions
Fixed some too-short fade distances
Added minor optimisation through appropriate model fade distances
Added optimisation through hints at CP2/4 and 3

Final words:

Pretty much all of B2's changes were met with "success" in the initial test. CP1 was easier to attack but was defended on the point a lot more whilst CP2 captures were easier to interrupt by either team. Whether or not this affect is prefered remains to be seen but the changes did what they were supposed to do.
