Podracer: Boonta Eve

9.0

Map Description

  1. CaptainDireWolf
    Welcome to the Boonta Eve Classic!
    These are 14 fully functioning podracers!! Welding is finally fixed!
    (Good for 2-16 players)
    Gametype: "Podracer" (respawns make you a pesky tuskan raider)

    [​IMG]

    This podrace takes place on the famous Mos Espa course on Tatooine. Hosted by Jabba the Hutt himself, this podracing arena challenges all competitors. Play as one of your favorite racers, including: Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and Ben Quadinaros to name a few. Extra people can take the teleporter near the start line and join the unruly tribe of sand people to shoot at the other racers (hint: aim for the gas tanks at the back of their pods for maximum effect).

    Wait 10 seconds for the green light to signal the start of the race, and then it’s time to haul rev up those engines! The map contains curving canyons filed with jumps and ramps that cut through the large formations of rock in Mushroom Mesa. Next, racers have to navigate through narrow openings and avoid falling rocks in Beggar’s canyon (there is the familiar service ramp for those pushed up and off of the course). Continuing on through desert plains and Arch Canyon, racers will eventually find themselves in the subterranean Laguna Cave (filled with kyber crystals). Be warned, as you go through the Canyon Dune Turn, Sand People may shoot or grenade down unlucky pilots. Watch out for the fires too (tried to mimic N64 Podracer here for those familiar with it). Whoever survives enters the last stretch of open desert dubbed the Hutt Flats, which contain pit deathtraps and small tornados. Racers must complete three laps to be claimed the winner.

    Let the games begin!

  1. Obviously with all the hype going around, this is quite a creative piece that merges halo 5 and star wars podracer. Unbelievable amount of detail to the podracers. I wish some of the bigger ones like sebulba's pod didn't feel so clunky, but I think it may be just the nature of the beast when welding blocks to vehicles. Rather glitchy after a lap or two with ghosts spawning, but overall very fun to play.

    9/5,
    This map is much better after the update! The racers are much smoother and only suffer slightly to the welding, but that's not held against you. I now like using pods like subulbas, even though it's a little more clunky, it provides a fun dynamic by causing fun problems for the other pods! Great job on this!

    4/5,
    The racers all feel really clunky and go crazy directions if you go airborn at all. Looks great and the idea is solid, but with the racers not functioning right, it is broken. The group I played with just complained about how they would get pulled around and the bigger pod racers had a terrible time getting through anything. This looks so much fun, but ended up being too frustrating to even finish.

    So far I've tested each and every podracer and they all seem to work pretty well without glitch. Though once I was driving a pod and it got stuck on a rock and then shot up into the air lol

    Great job aesthetically, too bad welding vehicles don't run smoother.

    I totally agree Up N Smoke. I wish welding didn't cause the ghosts and blocks to glitch out most of the time during the game. Hopefully 343 will be able to make this process smoother ;)

    Put any updates in the description and not the title. When you rename your map, it creates a new one rather than updates the bookmark. If you do any fixes on the map without changing the title, it will update the bookmark for everyone.
