Update history

July 7, 2016 Patch #1 (Meet Your Match Update)

  • Metalworks was added to the game.

August 16, 2016 Patch

  • Adjusted the height of the ceiling in the room behind the second control point.
  • Added some slight visual detail to various concrete rooms throughout (team color stripe).
  • Adjusted the height and width of various doors throughout the level. Mostly focused on primary paths into combat areas, with an eye towards standardizing door sizes where possible.
  • Fixed an angled playerclip brush above 2nd control point that players could surf on (thanks Photon).
  • Adjusted height of 'tank' in L room behind 2nd control point.
  • Moved two tall spotlights back into a clipping brush at mid to avoid very small collision issue (thanks Bilbert).
  • Adjusted some clipping issues by turning rooftop brushes into displacements/func_brushes throughout the map and disabling collision (thanks Bilbert).
  • Clipped off some glass windows at 2nd.
  • Added crate to cargo containers at mid, allowing Scouts to get onto the highest cargo container.
  • Added props to the clipping ramp around the final control point to indicate collision.
  • Replaced brush fence on the platform in alley with a metal prop to solve an asymmetrical shadow bug (thanks Bilbert).

December 21, 2016 Patch (Smissmas 2016)

  • Updated cp_metalworks to fix a texture problem.
