Multi Stage Goalrush B1A

Goldrush, but PASS Time

  1. 14bit
    Goalrush is an experimental port of Goldrush into an Attack/Defense version of PASS Time. The ball instantly resets when Red gets the ball, and all players are granted minicrits when the PASS meter is filled. The final goal at the end of Stage 3 is a bonus goal, which requires filling the PASS meter to score in.

    This map was originally started for the 2020 April Fools gameday, but was not finished in time. It was handed off to 14bit to complete in January 2021.

    Original concept, multistage A/D PASS Time logic, all goal areas except final, most of the changes to S1 and S2, most hidden foxes, and about 75% of the total work: @Flipy

    The bridge on S1, most of the changes to S3, the PASS meter logic, final goal, reverting half of Flipy's changes to the layout, reducing compile time from almost 12 hours to under 30 minutes, and the other 25% of the work getting it to release: @14bit

    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    This map uses a point_servercommand to set the ball model. The ball will not appear as a tiny payload unless point_servercommands are enabled on your server.

    If point_servercommands are enabled, then all PASS Time maps after this one will break if you do not change this cvar back to default!
    Code:
    tf_passtime_ball_model models/passtime/ball/passtime_ball.mdl
    This is because the custom ball only exists in this map. If you forget to do this, the ball will be an error model on all other PASS Time maps, won't be able to be picked up, and you'll have to change the cvar and reload the current PASS Time map to have it take effect.

    If your server is running Sourcemod and can do per-gamemode config files, you can add the command in your pass_.cfg file so it fires every time a PASS Time map loads to solve this issue and safely add your map to your rotation.
