Race balloon ships and get treasure!
THE FINAL VERSION Yes, this is the official balloon_race_v2, the final version of my own AND the Gaming Masters map! You can get the source below so you can make your own version to play with your friends or just look how this map was made.
GOAL Race your balloons across the map and capture cool stuff like treasure chests and outposts! Watch out for sharks.
SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE CONTROL POINTS: CP 1. Treasure chest A lone island in the middle of a lake
CP 2. Rocky outpost A small but very secret facility.
CP 3. The Bird's Nest Hidden outpost with two docking stations.
CP 4. Watchtower Highest reachable point in the map.
CHANGELOG v2b Changes:
This map is open source! (I'm sure you'd all decompile it anyway you sick little monkeys :P) I haven't included the textures and sounds so you'll have to un-pakrat it. Link to VMF (V2b): http://gmdedi.co.uk/br/ MIRROR (V2b): http://www.megaupload.com/nl/?d=U3WN7CUY

I commend you on an excellent level design. I am concerned about the clipping issues, but those are minor. If I may, I would like to change the ship slightly. It could be made much more interesting if you could build sentries and dispensers on the ship's upper deck.
Just an idea. It would be great if you could get back to me on this.
Alot better then the 1st. the larger ships help alot along with the short cuts. and the balloon blowing up at the end is just plain awsome
Anyone know how to get to the last point at mid air?
On my server where we play this map 2 well balanced sentries before a cappoint and enemy team never get this point. how about NO SENTRIES on this map ? ;) oh and its sniper heaven ;)
but ppl love this map.. great idea :) well done :)
What about sentry emplacement, it would be nice to be able to place them everywhere
You fall through the boat because the player's hitboxes are colliding. They push each other away and sometimes through a moving wall. It occurs less in v2b but it still happens.
Thanks for the review! :D
Pros: Fun, balanced, appealing map freshly different than the normal TF2 map. Cons: Falling through the boat glitch, which supposedly you fixed in a recent update. Riding on the blimp can be a bit jittery, but I'm sure you can't really help that. Many shots do not register as sniper due to the constant moving. Improvements: Not sure what much I can say, seeing as you might have already fixed my concerns in v2b. We'll see, though. Notes: That fish in the lake is awesome. Not to mention that there is a treasure chest that can kill you. What more can I say?
Thanks for the feedback so far guys.
V2a is out. I spent some more time trying to fix the falling through the balloon bug. I hope it's okay now. I'm awaiting your feedback. 8D
edit: Well, now I'm fixing a couple more bugs. I guess v2b will be here soon. :P
edit2: V2b is out, hopefully the last bug fix map update for awhile!
The balance is much improved from the last, will be excellent if the clipping problem is worked out. For an easy problem to fix, there are two brushes that aren't connected. They are in between the 1st and 2nd caps, they will be on the right if you follow the boat track. Also, the .vmf you provided doesn't seem to work. Hammer won't load it, it will freeze at the 5% mark.
