KOTH_Stinkeye B2

Its King of the Hill, but the Hill is protected by a massive multi-stage brush-and-entity boss!

    ----------
    WARNING: MAP CAN BE EXTREMELY LAG-INDUCING ON SOME COMPUTERS.
    ----------

    Welcome to koth_stinkeye! (Underwhelming name I know.)

    This map has been a labor of love for the most part, and rather strenuous at times, but, at looong last, its in a stable-enough state to be basically playable!

    The biggest highlight of this map is, of course, the boss. No, its not an existing boss made by Valve, it is a purely brush and entity-based boss made within the hammer engine's default configurations. If you want to know exactly how it works, check out the .vmf included in the download and have a poke around, or, check out this thread for the full process.

    The boss is fully capable of tracking targets within its operational area (the hazard lines between the gray dev and orange dev textures is the edge of its "sight") and shooting at them with a number of various weapons, from a machinegun that shoots explosive projectiles, and stickybombs that detonate after five seconds, to high-explosive crockets and its devastating eye-laser!

    ---{ Boss Statistics }---

    -The boss has 22,500 health divided into 3 stages. (5,000 at stage one, 7,500 at stage two, and 10,000 at stage 3.)

    -The boss counts as a building, so critical damage is ignored.

    -It takes approximately 2 and a half ammo stockpiles of one Brass Beast to take out the LAST stage. That's 3 full stockpiles of Direct Hit, roughly.

    -The boss shoots faster in each stage. (5, 3, and 1 seconds at stage 1, 2, and 3, respectively.)

    -The boss gains methods of attacks for each stage. (4 at stage 1, 8 at stage 2, and 9 at stage 3.)

    -The damage zone is straight up. Shooting the feet does nothing. This was to prevent the boss from damaging itself.

    -The boss's brushes are func_illusionary. This was to prevent the boss's attacks being blocked by itself. As such, you can shoot pretty much anywhere in the general direction of the boss and it will count as damage to it. As a rule of thumb, shooting as vertically at it as you can will count as damage to it.

    -None of the boss's attacks can be airblasted away. I'm not 100% sure whether or not its stickies can be destroyed with bullets.

    ---{ Boss Attacks }---
    (All boss attacks [other than the Eye Laser] are "made" with the tf_point_weapon_mimic entity. the Type refers to which of the projectile settings its set to.)​

    20180615090146_1.jpg
    Name: Grenade Cannon
    Type: Grenades
    Stage Activated: 1
    Notes: Shoots 10 grenades (5 from each barrel) with a 10-degree spread. Does 75 damage per grenade with a splash radius of 75.

    20180615090157_1.jpg
    Name: Stickybomb Launcher
    Type: Stickies
    Stage Activated: 1
    Notes: Shoots 30 stickies (15 from each barrel) with a 30-degree spread. Each sticky does 125 damage with a splash radius of 125. All currently active stickies detonate after 5 seconds. (Uses a different timer to the Landmine Launcher.)

    20180615090206_1.jpg
    Name: HE Vulcan Crossbow
    Type: Rockets (Arrows are glitchy and don't work.)
    Stage Activated: 1
    Notes: Shoots a total of 100 projectiles at a rate of 1 every 0.01 seconds in a machine-gun manner. Each shot deals 2 damage with a splash radius of 1, with no spread. Actually kind of easy to outrun.

    20180615090215_1.jpg
    Name: Missile Rack
    Type: Rockets
    Stage Activated: 1
    Notes: Shoots a volley of 6 semi-fast rockets (1 from each barrel) with a 5-degree spread. Each rocket does 75 damage with a splash radius of 50.

    Name: Landmine Launcher
    Type: Stickies
    Stage Activated: 2
    Notes: Shoots a volley of 30 crit-stickies with a 10-degree spread. Each sticky does 100 base damage with a splash radius of 100. All currently active stickies detonate after 5 seconds. (Uses a different timer to the Stickybomb Launcher.)

    20180615090202_1.jpg
    Name: HE Shell Shotgun
    Type: Rockets
    Stage Activated: 2
    Notes: Shoots 3 volleys of 40 crit-projectiles (10 from each barrel) with a 15-degree spread. Projectiles form the center barrel travel twice as fast. Each projectile deals 2 base damage with a splash radius of 1. Kind of impossible to dodge.

    Type: Grenades
    Stage Activated: 2
    Notes: Fires 30 crit-grenades (10 from each barrel) with a 5-degree spread. Each grenade deals 75 base damage with a splash radius of 75.

    4/5,

    A wonderful joke-ish map, though the capture time should be a bit faster. Standing on a small circle while a ton of explosives are lobbed at you isn't very easy to do for long.
