    My contest entry. This map contains custom particles, models and textures.
    Animus features PLR gamemode with a sunset-theme. Custom skybox and custom soul/voodoo cart.

    When a player dies, a soul is emitted and flies to the cart. Enjoy

    It may be the first of its kind but it is not the first PLR with a twist! If you look at the new pics for plr_Assembly you may see something out of place. ;)

    Sounds and looks amazing so far, it's going to be tough to compete with this one.

    Each soul you kill adds 7 seconds of movement to the cart. More kills, means a faster cart.

    Isn't that like... a lot?

    I thought that, well, we'll wait until first alpha to find out.

    So basically, camp harder than the other team.

    Does killing them make the cart move on its own, or let you move the cart yourself?

    To clarify some things (I built the system, so I know):

    The seven seconds doesn't add up end to end, it goes into the "recent kills" pile. If you kill someone, then make another kill three seconds later, the cart will have moved for a total of ten seconds. 3 at kill level one, 4 at kill level two, then another 3 at kill level one.

    You can also slow the enemy's cart to a snail's pace by standing near it. So there is still advantages to following the carts around rather than just sitting around spawn and see who kills each other faster.

    The idea of kills moving the cart sounds interesting, but the idea of <i>only</i> kills moving the cart sounds like it'll just degrade into team deathmatch, and there will be no reason to do anything around what should be the map objective.

    Only gameplay testing can tell, really.

    Ok, so what happens If one team is REALLY stacked, kills the first wave of the enemy, then just goes to the enemy spawn and camps the whole time? Auto-win.

    Well... when teams are REALLY stacked, any map falls on it's face.

    An interesting concept but I'm skeptical. :p

    Kritzgrieg at the start of the round (and overall) could provide some massive cart movement. Just thinking about how this would play out, I think it kinda places de-emphasizes away from the actual cart. It is more of a measuring stick of how your team is performing in their kill/death ratios and not as much of how your team is working to achieve the objective. Perhaps extra bonus can be added to kills made within a certain area of your teams cart, to better give focus on the "objective"
