The mapping team has also been very busy of late, we have 6 new maps that will be featured in our upcoming release, foothills, maricopa, mvalley, snowlake2, kingsmountain & pillage. These new maps provide a great deal of diverse gameplay, we have focused on making the game more exciting by creating maps where the gameplay varies drastically from map to map. Screenshots of these maps can be found below.

Gameplay is awesome, however, the models look like direct ports from the pre-Source age of gaming.

What caught my eye are the trees, I think they are a bit over-saturated.

oops i seem to have opened up a can of worms here about the visuals of this mod, again i have to agree with the others that gameplay is the most important thing and don't get me wrong i'm a big fan...if you wanted another texture artist for a little bit of help here and there im always around (although pretty swamped atm) :D... please don't take this offensively.

i really liked the original battlegrounds and this looks to be coming along nicely, although (and please don't flame me) your models and textures cud still use some work, they dont make the most of the source engine

Yeah we can take criticism guys, if people were more aware of the development circumstances to date they would understand why things are they way they are. One of the biggest problems we have had is lack of help, all of our developers are long time fans of the mod and are very passionate about its development, its been hard for us to get new help on mainly because of the mods current condition.... Its a tough spot to be in... We are always looking for help in all departments, please contact me via our site or email if youre interested
