Billiards2 Alpha 2 - Public Alpha Release

The second installment of Billiards. This map includes the same great fun, but with an all new look and tons of optimizations.

The biggest graphical upgrade is the inclusion of model billiard balls. Thanks to Fishy, the modeler, billiards2 looks like a "real" game of billiards! There is even a new type of ball, the cue ball, which heals and gives ammo to both teams!

Currently, there are a few gameplay elements missing. These include a live scoreboard and completed 3d skybox. There are a few other tweaks and adjustments that need to be made... but it's certainly fully playable!

Please try and test things like snipers being able to camp from spawn, graphical glitches, scoring errors, etc... hopefully nothing too major found its way into this alpha release.

Thank you for downloading! Enjoy!

So what do you do? Knock balls into the holes?

"Someone" is making Big Lou's billiards better? That someone is Big lou, your forum is very misinformed ;p

@DaFatCat:

You have to shoot your teams balls in the pockets before the other team does the same. The round starts with a rack around the balls and cue sticks blocking the middle of the table. When setup is over, the rack lists and the cue sticks disappear allowing both teams to shoot for the balls.

I liked the concept, but never played it. So, I'm glad you're back on the case.

Then you should definitely give it a try.

P.S. I'm currently working on a new scoreboard system to match the look and feel of the new modern table. I was thinking either a marker board (which would act just like the chalk board from Billiards) or an abacus.

Played this one last night. Everything seems to work well. The only problem I noticed is that once of the spawns is a little inside of the white part on the lamp and you get stuck when you spawn. YOu had to kill yourself to get free which is no good.

You can download the demo if you would like to see the match.

Sure, give me a link!

Hmm... I'll have to look into the spawn problems. I never came across that with small test groups. Thanks for letting me know!
