    LASERS
    Whether you're firing them, staring into them, or just chargin' them, lasers are awesome. Some might even say they're the new windmill-train-saws. I wouldn't say that though. All I'm saying is that what is found in this map is a box of death. You have a 512 unit bubble of vision, and an extremely high chance of death-by-spam. Because war is easy, I've altered the map so that the moon shoots laser beams.

    Fogbox is a small-ish (2048x2048) dev map, designed as a proof-of-concept map for my possible submission to the orange map contest. It contains no cubemaps, is very dark, and has no cover whatsoever.

    What?

    Even with it being incredibly dark and foggy, it'd be nice to have SOME cover, like the metal barriers from Hydro

    Yes, I know, the map is more about how the lasers affect play. I figured the main reason you would want cover in this map is sentries, which are easily dispatched by the lasers.

    I don't really like that hard falloff on the end of the laser where it reaches the ground.

    the amount of weird funmaps in this forum amazes me.
    i remember the time a couple of months ago, where everyone was whining about these kind of things.
    now it's the new black all of a sudden.
    i really hope things change again :)

    Kinda reminds me of an alien invasion or something....

    New map idea; Same thing, but make it a foggy city or whatnot and UFOs shoot the lasers and destroy the city as you fight.

    Actually, I'm probably going to make it a normal map, with lasers as a random environmental hazard. Good idea, but I doubt I'll ever wind up making either of these ideas.
