    So, one of my biggest dreams was to create a map that nobody would complain about, that was aesthetically pleasing, and would be free of any issues (especially spawncamping). Me, and some guys from the #5 idle server took the time to nab some ideas that would make this map a really good replacement for the Awesomebox map (which makes us look like every other idle server on TF2 if we kept it). Ideas forged are:
    • Use https://gamebanana.com/maps/185723 as a base (spawn and control point only if necessary). This map was heavily referenced by the once popular https://gamebanana.com/maps/171653. This new base should be twice as big to accommodate sticky and rocket jumpers so that Trolldiers can still do their thing.
    • The square arches on both sides leading towards the control point should block projectiles and hitscan bullets. This allows people to go in and start fighting without being killed the moment their head shows up.
    • Both areas of spawn (from spawn to arch, and further up leading to the idle room) could either have a function included that prevents the killing of people within (if you want enemy teammates to enter through the "admin room" and into your team's teleporter). Sentries in spawn will not target enemies, and enemies in turn cannot destroy the sentries. If impossible to replicate, remove the admin room.
    • In case of the above, turn the door to the admin room into a door to a custom sniper room. The room checks your class and, if you're a Sniper, you go into a room that prepares you to kill enemy snipers. If not, you will be in a room in which both teams will congregate to spectate the fights. Include the inability to kill enemy players or place buildings in this particular room. It's there for spectating only. (Spectating room suggested by bitrooster.)
    • If the admin room stays, add an extra door that leads to the sniper room mentioned above.
    • Feel free to include the boxing arenas in the base map above if you so wish, and make that map slightly bigger to make space.
    • Improve on the rocket jumping area to be expansive and allow Trolldiers to duel each other.
    • Add two trains to the friendly pool area (if you want to add it, I personally would) that float on the ground and serve as extra platforms to jump on. (Anti-air defense system wants the trains).
    The community can also add some features they'd like added, so long as they don't ruin the overall playability.

    1: Please make a better surfing area with more ways to get around the map such as jump pad, speed pads ect
    2: Please make an area for people to fight 1v1 without any other people interrupting [ you can accomplish this by making a boxes in the sky that only accepts two people at the same time]
    3: Please change the idle system so when the idler respawns he/she will be teleported to a one of many boxes where he/she will slowly die or let other people kill her/him
    4:Allow a player to "endlessly" farm to upgrade their strange only people with a strange item equipped can enter this room
    5: Have more healthpack/ammopack spawn points as the current ones are not enough and there are a lot of people constantly running to spawn to heal/stock up on ammo
    6: Add easter eggs for people who helped to create the maps [this is for fun you don't have to actually add this]
    Thanks for reading this please add these changes in the map.

    We actually had thr_revamp on the server for a while. People voted to have it changed back within 24 hours.
    I'm trying to keep the essence of awesomebox as a base map since we've had this map for years now and it worked quite well.
    This is practically impossible right now. The only work around through this is a door.
    Awesomebox_v1g already has this.
    The idea for making the current map was to have a little bit of everything, this will come in future updates. Functionalities are a priority.
    I will look into this.
    I do not think this is possible without third-party plugin intervention.
    Soon.

    1. The only reason people wanted it turned back was because it was too small and in such a buggy state. A few of them came to me with ideas on fixing it months ago. As for UGC's version of Awesomebox, I'm fine with keeping it as it is a staple if necessary, and this could be the side map if people so choose to have something different.
    2. If only I could remember how it was done in one of those achievement Minecraft maps, the only server that uses the particular map I'm talking about happens to be the server I've been banned from. If need be, I'll talk to you in private and tell you the server in question just in case you wanna find out for yourself.
    3. Of course, I was originally thinking of adding it to the base of the THR revamp map and having a door that teleports you there. I'm okay with how the current building looks for Sniper duels, I was hoping to have it copied onto the THR revamp map anyways.
