Default CTF Ice

I've been working on a CTF snow ruin themed map for a while, and it's pretty much done, so I thought I'd post it here.

It's a small abandoned town in a cold region, which has been recently occupied by the beasts (eastern side) and the humans (western side). They occupied the most suited place they could find as their camp. And as their scouts discover the enemy's base, they start planning attacks to ferociously steal the other team's flag.

There's a tiny easter egg.

Some other issues:
- You get stuck when climbing the towers some times, especially the bigger ones.
- I tried to make a script to prevent players from placing gadgets (particularly eyes and bats) in the easter egg area, but it seems when you check the "Gadget" box in proximity triggers the game doesn't seem to care and won't detect it.

If you can't run savage with dynamic lights on, turn off shadows so you can see.

Screenshots:

Would be awesome if we could get some CTF games going....

That being said, the map looks fun but it's really dark in some areas. Also, the bearloths have no textures for some reason.

I know it's pretty dark... That's just part of the environment, I hope it won't cripple game play too much. I tried to fill the human side with lamps since it's darker (less moonlight)

I noticed the bearloth's texture too when I tested it in the test client. It works fine in the normal game...

Make sure you test it on overly dark monitors. Just because it looks visible on your computer doesn't mean that a lot of poor saps will be able to see anything when they go to play (this is the sad downfall of most good-looking night maps).

Also, you can't exclusively rely on placed environment lights to make the map visible, as many players play without dynamic lighting enabled.

Just make it day-time, it'll be easier for everyone. Night is overrated.

Having the same environment in every single map is also overrated.

Will CTF maps ever find their way into official rotation? That would be _so_ cool.
