    Hey guys, Potato here with Ctf_Veritas, the map with THE BOMB.

    In this map, I took some Valve advice, End everything with an explosion, and threw it in overdrive! In this map, I have a planned precedent of 7 major explosions! That's right! 7! (Currently only 4 in there)

    The explosions play vital to the changing gameplay, by opening up new routes to the next base, killing enemies, and whatnot. They're not just cosmetic!

    Of course, the 7 explosions are not the only thing of major concern! When the bomb drops, after a short time, it explodes as well, doing damage to nearby people (Of both teams) and most certainly killing it's user. This adds in an interesting dynamic by allowing an offense to either suicide-rush in and kill a bunch of people or a defence to snipe the courier and blow up the enemy team around him! It's chaos!

    BUT WHAT ARE YOU READING THIS FOR? GET READY FOR THE CHAOS. GET TO PLAYING IT NOW!

    Now imagine that, but every time it drops it nearly kills (or kills) everyone, and I mean everyone next to the guy.

    Good method for taking out sentries.

    Will the intel like a backpack bomb that when the round ends, explodes and takes everyone in the immediate vicinity?

    I'll presume this is a contest entry.

    I was messing about with a ctf (traditional) map in which the capture zone was inside an incinerator. So you had to jump in the incinerator, and then you cap, and then you get burned and gib. I doubt I'll release it, I only made one door in the intel room. :lol:

    Quite interesting idea with the intel-bomb here

    Done right, this has epic potential

    Thinking he found a spray pertaining to it but he tried to hotlink it.


    I added in an explosion to building 1 for a1, I'm gonna post a video for it. I haven't tested how it works in gameplay but I bet it works wonders.

    Reminds me of a TFC map where, to cap the enemy flag, you had to toss it into this laser grid (and you with it). :D

    Good work so far, the map is really balanced and the exploding intel is a cool idea.

    He's not the only one who thought of a flag bomb, my contest entry will have a bomb as well.

    I was the first. Though I have been unable to do what I wanted so it will likely never become a map.

    Actually, there are like 3 guys with bomb intels.

    Me, Andyss, and Owlruler apparently all are doing it. Probably in different ways though.

    For instance, I know me and Owlruler both share the all points explode thing, but I don't know if his explodes shortly after drop.
