I just released a new map called racing madness . I've added a few traps to the map. You activate the by driving into an object or over an area.

See if you can find all 3! :)

Neato---not sure if I hit all three--I wasn't really counting--but the stone thrower seems to lag out the race a bit--could just be my Neanderthal system--but fun nonetheless!!

I was afraid of that. I'll try to do something about it.

There are 3 traps + the exploding fuel pumps.

They are:
1) The landslide/rock thrower - which is the obvious one.
2) A hidden nuke - kinda obvious, but only if your looking
3) Aliens who hate cheaters. Can't see it, except when you try a
certain short cut. }:>

I changed the way the rock thrower spews stones. Maybe this will help, give it a shot and let me know if it helps.

New version is up.

It seems much better--the only thing affected seems to be the sound of the game.
I think that the second time I tried the map, all the AI's (10 of them), used the shortcut, so there was a pile of chaos being dished out!!

yeah, cool UFO's, I like the rock trap as well... could you maybe change them into lawyers instead? :twisted:

The map is hard to drive too, I go off the hill almost every lap :(

You have to brake at the correct moment. :D

Another tactic I use is to step off the gas and over steer the tank before getting into the turn, this gives you a bit of drift, then floor it. :D

And lastly, I hit left/right before leaving a bump or hill to spin the tank in the direction I want to go when I hit the ground.

Takes practice. ;)

Nope, this is a regular TM map.

Just as a note, TeamCTF is a CTF (Capture The Flag) mod, not a Race mod or DM (DeathMatch) mod. Hence the name TeamCTF ;)
