    Today I begin something monumental.

    No doubt those of astute observations have noticed the TC prefix in this topic. Yes, I- the idiot that brought upon TF2 such cherished and beloved maps like Pipeball *snerk* and Melee Fort *snort*, am working on a bona fide TC map.

    Though I must warn you- this will not be a standard TC map. Oh no. Of course there's going to be a special gimmick behind it all. Exactly what that gimmick is, well, I'm not going to reveal it just yet. For now though, I'll just say that this takes the concept of non-standard gameplay to a truly idiotic level. When all is revealed, I may never be taken seriously ever again (considering I'm barely taken seriously as it is now).

    And no, it has nothing do do with pipes, or balls, pipeballs, or any such combinations thereof. You can put those theories to bed right away.

    You know, don't take this as offense, but it is shame someone who has potential to make some good tf2 maps uses all his time to make maps with silly gimmicks or gamemodes, that are not that fun or just end up being ignored.
    Sure, time will tell if gimmick on this one is too silly, but still tough, you should someday try to make entirely normal tf2 map, i would look forward to that.

    This is exactly what I was thinking, and, again, I don't mean it as an insult. If you can come up with a crazy gimmick that can make TC fun, then go for it, but I think we'd all like to see you do a real map without a zany custom gamemode.

    No offense taken at all. Sure I guess I could make an actual TF2 map. But why would I want to do that :p Some day I might, but for now, I just like coloring outside the lines.... and onto the table, walls, and ceiling.

    If you still ask why I do all this, may I refer you to Marcel DuChamp's Fountain:

    [​IMG]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_(Duchamp)

    The artist brought the urinal to his studio at 33 West 67th Street, reoriented it to a position 90 degrees from its normal position of use, and wrote on it, "R. Mutt 1917".

    Shortly after its initial exhibition, Fountain was lost. According to Duchamp biographer Calvin Tomkins, the best guess is that it was thrown out as rubbish by Stieglitz, a common fate of Duchamp's early readymades.

    In that case... Well... You look like you are enjoying what you are doing more than most of us :)

    So good luck with this one! I hope you manage to make something entertaining. J

    way too much detail for a pre-alpha build, but i just cant stop myself. As if this'll be a fine-tuned competivie-grade SERIOUS BUSINESS map

    That railing sticks through the wall, or is that a gimmick?

    ^^^ that was sarcasm obviously

    This project is still going on, only real slow. Connecting the rounds is going to be a real problem with the secret gimmick, and my inital solution didn't turn out so well, so while I figure something else out, I'm working on BLU's base still

    The circular light is just there as a placeholder for now

    Are you sure that control point on the ceiling wasn't meant to be censored?

    The point entity isn't the gimmick, don't worry. I'm not that loose with my secrets.

    Well, I feel it's time to let the cat out of the bag. At first I was a little tentative, as I knew the super-secret gimmick would utterly disappoint from the start. I thought I could build it up little by little, keeping people guessing, keeping them talking- and when all would be finally revealed, it would be a colossal disappointment.

    I just can't do that to you guys. I love this forum and it's people way too much.

    So without any further ramblings-on, I now present before you Project I-13 laid bare:

    Yes, I know my OP said it had nothing do do with Pipeball.

    Well, I lied. What better place to hide a tree than in the forest, I thought.

    You may now ready your tomatoes for throwing.
