Map Overview
Converge overview.png

Converge is a community-made Capture the Flag map created for the TF2Maps.net's Competitive CTF Contest. It placed 4th overall with 76 points.

Converge features an invasion mechanic, where both teams fight over a single flag and deliver it to the other team's base in order to capture it. Upon a successful capture, the flag will return to the center, and a 10 second cooldown temporarily disables the flag to allow teams to regroup. The flag also has a short timer after it is dropped (?). Once it expires, it will return back to the center.

  • (Hopefully) fixed the sound bug
  • Added a hint pointing to the flag that appears when the round begins and everytime it's returned to the center
  • Various minor visual changes
  • Corrected the light_environment's angles
  • Added a collision model to the manneframe mode and also updated the texture
  • Lowered the upper floor in the Intelligence room from 256 units to 192 units

  • Increased capture zone height by 32 units up to 96 units
