DescriptionSmash Bros. Fort Blast Pro (sb_fortblastpro_final1) is an upgrade from my previous attempt at making a Smash Bros. gamemode map. The focus has been shifted from recreating a Marble Blast level to instead making a balanced and visually appealing experience suitable for the Team Fortress 2 custom gamemode. It is, in short, the ultimate fusion of unrelated games: Super Smash Bros., Marble Blast Gold and Team Fortress 2.
Every single texture is either custom-made by hand or imported from Marble Blast Gold thanks to the Marble Blast Platinum team, and the map plays one of two songs from the named game: Beach Party or Groove Police. There is an anti-gravity zone in the middle, and kill triggers on all sides of the skybox, as well as a brush that blocks all fire during Arena setup time.
As of the writing of this post, Smash Bros. Fort Blast Pro is being run on many servers (most notably Rushy Servers), and is becoming a sort-of classic for the gamemode due to its open yet fair nature.
Smash Bros. explanationSmash Bros., also known as "Smash Fortress", is a custom gamemode in which a team's aim is to knock all enemies into the skybox surrounding the map, and the team with the highest number of stock (lives) remaining wins. All damage a player takes is converted into a "percentage", which in turn controls the amount of knockback that is applied to the player after getting hit. There are many weapon balances made by the gamemode to ensure each class has a balanced role, even if some classes may seem unfair to play against.
