Waterlog A8

PD with water!

  1. The one for the contest

    • Increased launch pad power to be more consistent
    • Increased lighting on the launch pads to make them more visible
    • Fixed players getting stuck in the ground when the floor drops away on the points
  2. The one with the launch pads

    • Reworked countdown indicators on the HUD
      • A stopwatch will be shown next to the countdown at the start of the round, before the randomly-chosen first point opens. Afterwards the HUD will function as follows:

      • A down arrow appears on the HUD when B is opening next
      • Letters are still show when the points are open
    • Added launch pads to the pit below A
      • These launch players up onto the point when...

  5. The one where it's optimized

    • Optimization pass
      • The whole map no longer renders at once
      • Let me know how I did on this, I'm not sure it's good enough yet
    • Clipping improvements
    • Added ramps to the side doors near the top of the map
      • This eliminates the need to jump up into the building when approaching from the sides
    • Lowered the score limit
      • 4 points are added for each player in the match (down from 5), lowering the maximum needed to win to 106 points (down...
