    Introducing arena_traintraintrain, the most visceral of train experiences. RED and BLU are battling it out of top of a train... that's on top of another train! Contains more trains than the average mapper can handle, but still fewer trains than trainsawlaser. Also includes cubemaps in an alpha! Inspired by the conversation from an impromptu from yesterday.

    TO DO LIST:

    add third layer of train

    If this is true, then this:

    is false.

    I forgot to say, it has 16 spawns for each team, so you can have 32 player arena without spawning inside anyone.

    My master plan is progressing! Come, my minions! We shall smite those who deny the word of the one true Train God, He who choose choose motherfuckers!

    Trains should travel in the opposite direction to the layer above, in a circle.

    Well... I think even if you have more, I still have you beat in the most important stat: TPM.

    (trains per minute, for you plebeians)

    I dunno, Booj. Train Rain drops 26 trains (holy shit I didn't realize it was that much) each time the point is captured, and the point captures in 3 seconds. That's not even counting the trains going across the spawn courtyards (at least twice a minute, maximum of 6 times per minute), the train sharks (4-7 tpm), or the train minion!

    Choo choo, motherfucker.

    Traingrid has a sustained averaged rate of 47.6 TPM (6+6+6 + 8+8+8 + 8+8 trains per full sequence, which takes 73 seconds to complete). Trainsawlaser relies entirely on having a contested and frequently captured CP to surpass that. If the CP gets locked down the automatic trains can't come close!

    But sorry, dustmotes, I fear I may have derailed this thread.

    Crash wasn't even thinking about trains until I made trainwreck.

    Which is no longer trains. In fact it went trains -> subway cars -> rocket bombs.

    But I was still a pioneer compared to him.
