    Purpose:
    As a collaborative effort between Matt and myself, we are improving on a sort of fun game type called Balloon Race.

    Improvements on Balloon Race:
    • Players are forced to stay on the boat, so that snipers don't become insanely over powered.
    • Boats falling behind will get a faster rate of speed, to catch up.
    • Better capture point layouts, for more interesting battles.
    • Players win by capturing the last point, not by capturing 3 points.

    Screenshots:

    Known Issues:
    Players spawn outside the boat when the round first starts.

    Please reply on what you think about the map, or to give some feedback on the layout, and game concept. Thanks.

    I feel like it should be snowing.

    Seems wrong to call something a race, and then make the losing team go faster. Can't wait to see it in a gameday though

    Yeah, it's pretty lame to handicap the winning team. Reminds me of racing games that teleport bots near you just so they can catch up :/

    If it is about the last capture, what do you get from the other captures? A speed boost?

    Oh, great, I wanted to make a map just like this, right down to the boats.

    But I'm working on another one.

    But I was going to be working on it as soon as my other was in B1. :crying:


    But anyway, it looks good.


    Guess I'll have to use space ships...

    The main problem is if a boat get ahead, theres nothing the losing team can do about it, and both teams don't have fun. That was the second most fail thing Matt and I observed from the original Balloon Race map.

    Yes, your boat gets a faster rate of speed for a short amount of time.
