    You've seen the video. The crazed cat that shoots lasers.

    Anyone who knows anything about mapping will instantly realize that one could create that in only a few minutes.

    I hereby suggest that we get the best and brightest of TF2M and create the most epic, showy and creative boss battle map TF2 has ever seen.

    I personally will gladly contribute music, as well as ideas and my growing entity mastery.

    What do you say, gentlemen?

    Well I can easily whip up a platforming system, provided I'm able to launch hammer in the forseeable future.

    Somewhere mixed between Serious Sam and a plat-former would be cool. Would love an adventure game - but surely the map size limits and the amount of time it would take to load another would be a bit ridiculous?

    ...

    Something I've been thinking about for a while is that survival maps would really be possible now with the A.I.; testing how long you can hold out in impossible situations would amazing.

    I too have thought of a survival map. But that's ultimately very boring.

    We're the goddamn TF2M Mappers, the skybox is the limit!

    But in this boss type of boss battle would it be possible to make it so that when the boss is defeated the team who killed it wins?

    I'd be willing to help. I can do custom overlays/textures, as well as mapping.

    Boss should be Boojum. He shoots entities at you.

    A modified version of the Meridian atrium could work as a boss chamber.
