weapon preset map
« on: December 29, 2010, 12:22:56 PM »
Hi,

Lately I've been brainstorming about this new idea for a surf map. I'm not sure whether this has already been done or not..

1:

I would like to make a surf map, where at the beginning of each round, there is some sort of mini game. The 'winner' gets tele'd to another room, and gets to pick a weapon of choice. Once chosen, the surf starts.
The specific weapon will of course be the only weapon of choice that round.

I was thinking about something like this: knife or deagle or m4a1/ak47 or m3 or ...
Or maybe a combination: knife and scout with lower gravity... And MAYBE, maybe, an option where no gun is chosen, so that the weapons are in-game.

The surf style I had in mind would be something like machine, or maybe even akai... (I'm not trying to copy maps it's to give an idea)

The biggest problem would be that the map would have to be interesting for all weapons.
I want the winners of the minigame te be confrontated with the biggest dilemma of their lives (lol) each round.
Another problem could be the size of the map / round time: I always say 'to each his own' and this is the same thing with weapons in css.
If one choses to go KNIFE, other people might not like it and so on.

----

2:

Another option could be that each weapon that can be chosen, is tied to a personal map. So i'm talking about a multimap thing here (again!)..
But then I want a max of 3 - 4 maps.

I would prefer to collab this with one or more people.

________________________________________________________________________________________

If someone is interested, or if I'll be starting this soon, then there is one thing I can assure you right away:

NO AWP!

Feel free to add ideas or to say what should not be done and so on.

Happy holidays,

DESE

Sounds like a fun idea.

Also sounds like a blockfort-esque map would be a good choice for the arena, which is good for all types of weapons. \

UPDATE: idea added to latest project.
Minigame is a little maze with random teleports...

- equipment: m3-knife    /   ak m4a1-knife     /    scout-knife     / all (spawn with knife only, weapon spawners and single weapons in game, buyzone included)
- 1 map
- all 'sv_gravity 500'

This is sort of weak. Why not have the mini-game be surf related? and why random teleporters?

That's all of the inspiration I had. You can post suggestions here if you want...

I decided to make them random because if you would have played the map +5 times, you would know what portals go where..

I still have a back up idea that is more surf related.. It's all surf actually. It would be a big straight ramp, and with the help of trigger_push you would have to be the first to get in a hole or something. But that is even less original I think.
