    Borax focuses in vertical battles, team balance and much more. This map offers some beautiful sights and great fun.

    Blu team must escort the cart to the Red's Base. Here, Red have their Rocket, that they plan to destroy BLU HQ with. Fortunately for Blue, red is also dumb enough to have a powerful fan under the rocket.

    Blu takes this to their advantage, moving the cart to the fan, it blows the cart into the air hitting the rocket. The rocket explodes into pieces and Blue wins!


    How it was done

    Borax - From A1 to B1

    Changelog RC2:
    - Improved Optimization
    - Added loads of Occluders (improves optimization further)
    - Fixed invisible block for the stairs at cp2
    - Fixed Red being able to access their previous spawn after a point is capped
    - Added a additional path in the blue building where the cart goes through
    - Adjusted ammo and health packs

    The map is really coming together. The explosion is awesome, Jive Turkey did an even better job than for the VipersDen explosion. ;)

    For some reason that makes me think of an unpainted Warhammer figure.

    Haha. Anyway, bad news, Beta 1 wont be on Gameday this weekend. Alpha 9 will be there instead. Reasons:
    - Dont have time to finish up
    - Need more gametesting from alpha 9

    Just to say, this is the first map I've seen progress from alpha to beta and I'm very impressed with the difference. I mean just changing from a3 to a9, there is a significant change.

    Hahaha, thanks. I just trying to show everyone that Im not the kind of person who doesn't do alpha maps then abandon them. I have a lot of free time, I map when I can, I love it and its hell of a fun, it cant really get better if your real good at it too :p

    We've played a9 on 2f2f several times - BLU has never been able to capture the 2nd point. One of the main problems is that RED's spawn room is essentially right in front of the capture point. Coupled with a spawn time imbalance and long travel times for BLU, and the push for the 2nd point becomes an exercise in frustration.

    Players were fully aware of the shortcut opened for BLU after point 1 was taken, but the layout of the shortcut was such that it was too easy for RED to control the area, and it provided poor visibility for BLU.

    Alright, thank you Floor_Master for testing Borax on your awesome server. I am aware of these problems. But you just made me relies its a very big issue.

    As for the status of Borax Beta 1, it has been delayed for another week. Promised this week for gameday but, some more stuff is going on. I want to make the release of Beta 1 as perfect as possible. You can expect a video of it late next week.
