okies ladies and gentlemen.

there is another PX-Production map in progress which is loosely based on everyone's favorite map "airshotsex" :P

the original plan/idea was that it was going to be 2 separate arenas, one for 1v1 dm, and another ffa arena...essentially two airshotsex arenas clumped into one map, where if 2 people wanted to duke it out 1v1 style, then they could go into arena 1; then for people that dont like to 1v1, they could have a 4 team ffa dm (the way airshotsex is now) in arena 2.

well, the 1v1 arena is just about ready, so now the deevlopment is goin to be on the ffa arena...but there were a few other notions tossed in, thus makin it a lil difficult to deciede...so what a better place to ask than hte playerbase :P

so now the two main directions for the ffa arena are a deathmatch or a murderball :?:

so lets have any fors/nays/pros/cons/other ideas/etc :pbt: ;) :)

thx.

nme_ass? Is that the name for the map?

Think about what people'd say, "NMEs play on the map, nme_ass...." er... :o :()():

well the name is up in the air...was just an acronym...

Air Shot Sex

nme_gibs

Is it going to be better for air shots than air shot sex?

Maybe put some of those 'bounce' trampolines in the ffa area to encourage air flight. :D

well the 1v1 arena is pretty much the same as the airshotsex arena cept with a coupla small tweaks and additions, and that one is pretty much completed. now the ffa is whats left, and its looking like its leaning towards a murderball type theme, which would go hand-in-hand, since muderball is essentially dm anyhoo, but with somewhat of a goal people can associate with :P

me prefer murderball to a full blown dm map. maybe instead of holding a soccer ball you can run around wif an nme logo above your head. x already has the nme logo designed in baseout. dunno how easily it can be migrated to this map.

Another cool idea, although I'm not sure if it is possible is to have the very top of the map have low gravity so when you trampoline (gotta have trampolines! :D) up there you float for a few in low grav where low grav fights can take place in mid-air and once you hit a certain point you fall back down.

Again, you cannot have snipers or it will ruin all the low grav and trampoline fun.

A very simplistic view is attached.

actually, we already have some "special/custom" items lined up for the map...which pretty much locked in the murderball theme as of last nite :oops: :lol: :P

as far as im picturing it somewhat now is that itll be similar to the spaceball map, where its kinda suspended in space, where u can fall off hte edge and stuff (in order to keep the "airshotsex" type theme for the whole map)...the additions of some blocks, ramps, trampolines, floating/tiered platforms, etc. in order to try and mix things up some. oh yeah, im personally shooting for no snipers too :pbt: :wink: oh - the low grav boundary :D
