NEW AND EXCITING!

On the first day, Asylum created Pipeball, and it was good.

On the second day, Asylum created Super Pipeball, and it sucked utter fucking shit.

On the third day, totally not like Coca-Cola in the 80s, Asylum created Pipeball Classic, and it will hopefully be good.



"So why remake Pipeball?" You may be asking. Well, the original Pipeball was all well and good, but it was mired with typical Hammer-amateur problems. It didn't even have areaportals :O. That and, well, it looked pretty bland. And Pipes. Dear god did it ever lack long round pipe-like things.



This update takes the best of Pipeball and Super Pipeball, and then some. Notice the expanded netting behind the goals?



Ah yes, Pipeball finally has pipes, or something that could be described as vaguely pipey-like.



So it's basically the same layout as the original Pipeball, with the same dimensions and a facelift



Of course, you'll remember from Pipeball that falling into the goal would kill you. In Super Pipeball, falling into the goal would not kill you- it'd teleport you to the ball return chute, and THEN kill you, leaving your ragdoll to slide down for all to see and laugh at.

Wanna' see what happens to goal-faller-intoers in Pipeball Classic? Of course you do.



Charming. Also note Super Pipeball's scoring system is in place.



PIPEBALL CLASSIC FUCK YEAH

======

Pipeball Classic features:

- Pipeball's super-short Setup timer
- Pipeball's original layout
- Super Pipeball's First-to-Three-Goals scoring system

New in Pipeball Classic:

- Expanded goal nets
- Open sides in the middle ground that players/ball can fall over. The ball will be transported back to the dispenser pipe. Players will die.

Make another pipe and coat it with trigger_nostickys (or whatever it is). Demomen shoot a sticky in one end, and it comes out at the destination.

WHO WANTS NEW PIPEBALL!?

SURE YOU DO!!

Ah yes, the skybox is filled out and everything's been all prettified-like

No escape. No not-pipeballing. Final destination.

CHANGES FROM A1

- Actual skybox yay
- Surrounding area has been filled in, so it's not half a river/drainage ditch/whatever floating in space
- Re-clipped the support beam holding up the middle fences. No more lollygagging behind them for you pal
- No, I don't hate BLU. I just didn't notice the lack of a full healthkit behind their goal like there was supposed to be
- the trigger_teleports around the out of bounds areas have been tweaked, so the ball will only teleport back to the ball return pipe if the ball really does go OOB

Update time

CHANGES FROM RC1

- Made both balls a little heavier, so they don't fly around quite like they used to, allowing for more control
- Adjusted the trigger_hurt brushes inside the canyon, so your framerate won't suffer as horribly as it did before
- Fixed the issue with the black ball being able to soar over the trigger_teleport brushes and break the game
- Oh yeah, and added superficial stuff to the spawnrooms
