Ant farm

Post by Joe-Schmoe » Mon Sep 24, 2007 11:59 pm

Hooray! Another map!

This map is essentially an ant farm...FOR TANKS!!1!shiftyone!!

You spawn inside a room with some flags in it and a teleporter. Once you go through the teleporter, you're sandwiched between two invisible walls. While usually one must try to dodge WITHOUT jumping, here, you'll have to jump to avoid getting hit!

There are a few traps. A couple of passages have deathboxes, which kill you if you touch them. On the lower of these two passages, there will be a physics driver which launches you towards one such deathbox! However, if you jump quickly enough, you will miss the box, instead, you will land right in the enemy base!

The best thing about this map is that playing on it is only half the fun. Switch to observer mode and watch the battle from the side!

Notes: tankLength and tankWidth are set to 2.9, and angVel is set to 1.5. This means you can turn around quickly inside the passages.

Screenshots will be posted as soon as I get around to it.

Okay, screenies are in!

Here you see the basic layout of one half of the map. That big ol' box is where you spawn, exiting via teleporter. (which you can just see at the bottom right corner)

That right there? That's one of the deathboxes. It's sitting on the launcher.

Here's what it might look like from a player's perspective. It helps to have the radar zoomed in really close like this.

That section near the top is what I can "the arena", it's the only way across without using the launcher. It has lots of layers where you can jump to safety. I'm imagining most of the action would occur here, but of course who can say at this stage :)

If these images are too big I can just turn them into links. Lemme know if it's a problem.

Yes, they are quite irritating, please turn them into links. I would love to play on this map with some players. Hope to see a public server for this one soon. :)

Quite nice, I like it. But why the waterlevel?

The water is there to keep the ants from escaping, of course.
