    Egg model made by Aly, skins by me.

    CAPTURE EGGS!
    There is a nest of eggs hidden underground, but you are too big to fit in the tunnels... so you'll have to jump through a shrinking vortex.

    Features a custom hud for score tracking!

    >> How it works

    -------------------------------

    Beta 2

    Added custom HUD to track egg capture counts.
    Added some various announcer cues to make it less empty feeling.
    Removed score deficit gates.
    Added a random gate system to the tunnels.
    - 16 gates total.
    - Every 15 seconds, 3 gates per side are chosen to close.
    - Certain pairs of gates can't close at the same time.
    Added crappy 3D skybox so the cliff isn't as weird.
    Detailed a few areas.
    Round timer reduced to 5 minutes (from 8).
    Fixed shrink bonus being given by the enemy capture zone.
    Fixed under-the-ground spots (hopefully).

    I really like the design principles behind this map, but i wish it didn't use that awful rock texture

    boojum i think i'm gonna have to go rogue and detail this for you, whether you like it or not.

    I am thinking of removing the shortcut tunnel because it seemed pointless. I didn't really want it, but only left it in because I had already made it and didn't think it could hurt. ...does anyone even know what I'm talking about? If so do you think it matters.

    and penguin I said no because I have intentions to detail it some more. dunno if the rock will stay or go, I don't particularly have a problem with it.

    Cant you randomize the tunnels instead?

    I already found the fastest path to get in and out in the 2nd round. Randomzing them probably is going to make searching harder and can actualy give less predictable results.

    And if the round then takes too long you can slowly open more paths again. They might not allways be a shortcut but if its the easier to remember path, then thats not a problem.

    I made me a custom HUD. :O

    Here's a video from debug mode with hud icon overlays and visible CPs so you can see everything happening.

    Basically abusing the six possible icons per CP.

    You haven't posted a youtube video in FOREVER! I'm still subscribed to you on there.

    I'm happy to see you still working on these kinds of things.

    Beta 2 woo!

    Captures happened way faster than I expected, so I am trying out this thing with gates that randomly open and close in the tunnels so you can't rely on a specific path all the time, and to make tunnels riskier. Same reason I cut down the round time. It was always ending by full capture, never timer.

    If this doesn't play how I want, I am considering completely rebuilding the map in an asymmetric layout such that the tunnels and the ground above them with the capture zones are not mirrored... but that's a lot of bother for a gimmick map.

    I think it's worth the effort maybe. being small is fun and "egg war" is too nutty of an idea.
