ff_mountain_escape

Ok, changing the theme a little bit on my escape map. Instead of being a alpine escape map, I'm changing it to to a mountain facility escape-ish thing. Easier to make that way.

Anyway, basic scenario is based somewhat on k_thegame. You're trapped in a mountain facility, have to escape, blah blah blah. Going to have turrets, crates, and maybe some cake. And of course something that EVERYONE hates.

Ideas for various parts?

Make sure you have a theme... it is never any fun if you are just plopped into a middle of a map and have to get out. Put a little story into it.

Oh, and do not forget the gondola! There has to be a gondola.

dont make toxic lava or anything, make deep chasms you can fall down if you don't jump correctly

Be sure to have short-term goals like deactivating turrets, turning off security lasers, deactivating enemy spawns, etc. Good luck, I look forward to seeing how it turns out

Dangerous water passages, labyrintic tunnel systems with traps and spooky sounds, avalanges, CAKE EATING ZOMBIES, movable props to get from one spot to the other, a passage with swaying walls on hinges, a rotating tunnel, random teleports (pick wrong and you wont get any cake), a slippery slope on the mountain side where you have to ski on your shoes in high speed ...


Can't wait for an Escape map to come out

Oh jeeze, you're all so demanding :P. I may have frosty-cold water in the beginning. I'm starting to reconsider the scenario just a little bit, by having some background to the capturing thing.

Well if you can find someone who wants to prettify it with displacements and such (I suck at them), then your wish shall be granted.

Right now the f-ing "Flip" tool isn't working for me.

EDIT: Now hammer's just being a fucking fucktarded fucker. Won't even let me select a brush face for the displacement, and the wonderful carve tool is a POS.

OMFG! The ski slope idea is the best I've heard yet, esp. if you put shit in the way... stuff to jump over, crouch under and ski around. Hell, with the screen bluring at high speeds, I bet you could make a map of just that alone and it would be sick. Certainly hasn't been done before... not that I can think of anyway.
