    A fun map that exploits the sticky jump ability in a way never done before :p

    Currently you will need a 2nd player that checks the score you have and constantly swap teams each turn. Im still working on improving the system in the map so it shows which square you exactly did hit.

    Stickyjump on the board and you will become stuck (to stop cheating by falling down a square making the triples slightly easier). After 5 seconds youll die and 1 second after it the next jump can be done.

    This map isnt ment for serious playing, its all about fun.

    you could probably improve this by adding a scoreboard. I recently experimented with stuff like this. you should make trigger_multiples that go on each score part of the board, then check when someone passes through it, it sends the score to a math_counter, which adds to a scoreboard.

    Heh, it's time for some MAN DARTS.

    Would have to test it, but wonder if you could use it as a Scout as well, using the Home-Run taunt to bat people at the board.

    You could have a monitor hookup, so people could see where they landed.

    Oh, so the players jump onto it? I thought it was just charge up stickies and shoo them at it :p But i guess that would be too easy.

    I know it's not a serious map, but it could still benefit from some nice details.

    I already know how to make that. I even know how i can force people to touch a double at the end.
    Thats going to be some text that shows on the screen.
    Dead people cant activate triggers unless you set it to everything. but if i do that bottles or other random stuff can activate other parts. So thats a no.
    Its still an alpha map. Details will be added later on.


    Im probably going to make multiple version of the map in the end:
    - a 2 player version (which also will work for 1 player ofc) for some vs mode.
    - a multiple player version where it doesnt keep your score but only displays the square you hit. (this is going to be used in a ukcs event most likely) This one is just for random fun.

    Well, i have actualy started this map for a demoman only event. Mostly based about stickyjumping. Most maps dont realy make alot of sense in that and many times its just for messing arround.

    There are however a few maps for a contest and this map will simply be the same player jumping 3 times and then the scores get compared. The other version is more of an event only map where its ment for alot of players. Not realy the 501 playing style. Thats why its going to be 2 versions.

    Btw, happy new year. It has passed here already.
