    Ok, I'm into the b2 version of my rollerball map and it already got a good fun rating but I want to make the next even more so.

    If you've see the rollerball movie - the original - you know that it's pretty violent and I want to add in some suprises into my map:p

    Here are the upgrades I need some help with:

    Background to help you – 2 teams 5 red balls 5 blue ball each – have to get them into a hole on the other colours side.

    1 - I have some black balls - phys_pushbox (sorry if name not right - me at work) and I notice that you can make them explodable!! So what I want to do is to set the damage amount to x and when the ball hits that level it goes BOOM killing anyone near it. How do I get it working? I’ve pumped a ton of lead into these balls and none of them have killed me yet. Thought behind this is that no one will want to get these balls near them because they don’t know when they’ll go boom – it adds some more mayhem into the map.

    2 – I have 2 yellow balls – with trigger hurt but they won’t roll (same mayhem idea)

    3 – want to make a pink ball – and attach a teleport entity to it – no idea if this works and then randomize the teleport destination – any ideas?

    4 – class limits – I need to remove snipers or at least limit them to 1-2 on each team – or limit the weapon they can use - how do I do this?

    Thanks!

    Bump -

    Big Lou gave me permission to use his 8 ball - Thanks - I can now kill people with it.

    Anyone got an idea how I can make the others explode?

    I made some example balls (because I need the practice)...they don't roll very well, but they explode. I've played with the damage filters, but they haven't been performing as hoped.

    The red one has the 'only by trigger' flag, and should only splode when you step on the red square.
