    Here it is after literally thousand's of hours of testing I bring to the very final version of Highland fort. I would like to thank everyone who tested with me whale I slowly got rid of the framrate issues and made gameplay improvements allowing me to bring to you guys the first asymmetrical, symmetrical map.

    Description:
    This map is a little of a odd ball it is made for CTF and Assault and i entered it under CTF in the contest. It plays everything else expect invasion and race. So why did I call it odd it's because even though it is completely even teams the map handles asymmetrical just as well a as a asymmetrical map, and gives a unique experience depending on which team you are on. The teams in no way are lopsided both have 3 entrances and exits but they are different sizes and have have different way to invade.

    Weapon Setup:
    2 Dmrs 30 ST
    2 needle rifles 30 ST
    2 Plasma pistol 30 ST
    2 Shotguns 30 ST
    2 Plasma rifles 30 ST
    1 Sniper rifle 60 ST
    1 Focus rifle 60 ST
    1 Grenade launcher 75 ST
    6 Frag grenades 10 ST
    6 Plasma grenades 10 ST

    This is a very beautiful map. I love the design. The dried up creek makes the map and is why I'm keeping it. I also love the unique bases, it's a good map you've built here.

    My only problem, and it's a huge one, the weapon placement needs work. Power weapons are too abundant, too easily accessed, and their spawn times are too quick. One example is the sniper on the tower with the shotgun underneath it, with spawns fast enough you can camp. The weapon placement might be fine for bigger team games, but where there's only you and a few others... not so much.

    Try to put powerful weapons in places that either aren't risky and it can't be used right away, like a Rl in a tunnel, or in places that are risky and it can be used right away, like a Rl in a empty creek. You want people to have to go grab the sniper, run to the good snipe spot, try to snipe, maybe get a few kills. That's just my experience.

    Otherwise, great map, I'm keeping it. =]
