    For the most part, the map has been tested and balanced out good. I am going to add some gates to the lower spawns like the above spawns, but I have a nagging issue with the payload final cap point, some times it wont trigger the blue team win!?

    Suggestions or help would be greatly welcome! Zip file with models and raw map:

    It's not actually an original idea, this was originally done by Jazz of CP but didn't gain much popularity. This has higher production values thought ;)

    Thank you for the comment, most of the map was created in max with collision. Do you have a link to the other map? I would love to test it out. I am sheltered because I hardly play on any other servers, my main hang out is necrophix.com :thumbup:

    Which server is this on?! I MUST PLAY IT!.

    EDIT:
    also if you want help testing, i might be able to get this on obscure studios server if jazz isnt going to stop me out of jealousy.

    Nice work nic

    Well how to start
    sack welldone with making this map playable. i must admit im yet to play the working version but i have been helping out on givign sac ffedback and mapping support.

    i love watching it from the side because of the way you can just see a hevey pointing upwards and so on. ACE

    i hear that there are still bugs tho (not to get you down) that need to be adressed before its put up for general consumption. but otherwise i love it.

    when i first heard that Mic was making this map, me and other memebers or Necrophix.com started talking about what other maps would work. we went throug tetris and frogger, and then pacman??? i thought it over and decided to make the pacman map to go with this map so we could make colab arcade. i had a bit more time on my hands so i have mine currently at a playable level at a B4. so once both of us have got our maps next to finnished, you can look forwould to seeing a NGC_ARCADE map, mixing the both, (providing mic is still up for it)

    Thanks for the kind words y'all! :p You are correct Funk, the map needs some fine tuning, but over all seems to have a balance now. I was worried the top team would just rain down the pain, but as the blue team keep taking a level, it hinders the top red team from getting a solid setup.

    As for testing, you guys are welcome to test it and send me feedback! :) Necrophix is very cool about allowing me to test on the public server when each new version is available.

    More like several big props, as I found a collision object limit within a model The spawn rooms are made with brushes, but overall models dominate the map.

    Getting back a little, I still need help with the final cap point, because for some reason the final cap will not capture some times. This only seems to happens when map is on the server and not local? I was thinking it might have something to do with collision? Because sometimes players get stuck between mario and the level a few moments while mario moves forward.

    You can't just use "CaptureCurrentCP". You have to manually send an input to the CP to "SetOwner" to "3" when Mario passes the path.

    I made some updates tonight, adding doors to all the levels, adding a new model designed to give a fade to black look between the spawn rooms, and level. And I adjusted the mario cart objects collision, but it did not fix it. The problem comes from player collision getting stuck between mario and the level, when that happens it seems to break the map. One way to fix this is to move mario outside of the level and make the trigger just a long box that stretches out across a level. So you can never collide with it. But I'd like to keep him on his current track.

    I uploaded the latest level and source. http://screenracer.com/tf2/maps/dk_files_beta6.zip

    Big thanks goes out to the necrophix.com server and players for hosting a great test. Even though the map broke, each attacking team was able to win! Also thank you to Kiester and Mammal for all the mapping help!

    The spawn fade object fakes a distance fog so it looks you fade into the level when you come out of the spawn. What the spawn fade looks like:

    BTW: Great post chicken hunter over on you tube! thank you :) I hope you had a good time testing it!

    Thanks Floor Master! That is a great comment coming from you :) - I visit your servers every once in a while. I am one of the "Red Storm Guys" as I put it. I see you took advantage of the source, it looks great! Are all the barrels just dynamic objects bouncing around or on some sort of path?
