pl_barnblitz
« on: August 24, 2013, 03:52:59 PM »
Since we used the UGC version of swiftwater, maybe we can use the pro version of pl_barnblitz?

Here's the latest version.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/r4z8rtxqhyh2nsj/pl_barnblitz_pro4.rar
If you'd like to check this map out yourself you can do the following:
-Open up the .rar file
-Put the .bsp file into your maps folder (Steam>SteamApps>common>Team Fortress 2>tf>maps)
-Open up the console in TF2 (By default it's "`")
-Type "map pl_barnblitz_pro4" in console (Without the " ")
-Type "sv_cheats 1" in console (Without the " ")
-Type "noclip" in console (Without the " ")

By then you should be able to explore the map and come up with your decision.

Oh neat, I was browsing around for the right place to suggest the same thing and there's already a suggestion for it.

Is this still being considered? Because I just played this on a different server and it was great, blitz is one of my faves but the custom version is a fun improvement imo.

barnblitz pro posted by apple is far superior, especially at last bcause of the extra opening that makes the game less stalematy and more exciting.

Might make Barn Blitz a bit more enjoyable. How about a Trial run at least?

I'd like to see the pro version in rotation as well. I love the original overall but on a 32 player server that last stage just becomes too much of a choke. I really like that side opening in the pro version.

I wanted to bump this and see if we still have interest.  One of my main gripes about the original is 4 engies can put an end to point 1, and with the changes made to Pro4, it's so much more balanced.  Am also going to cross post in the Admin Lounge.

Agreed, Blu can roll the first 3 points of original barnblitz and have 10 minutes on the clock and be completely stopped on last because red has two level 3 sentries on last. Way to easy to defend with a few engies and demos. It becomes way to stalematey and just gets boring very quickly. Pro version is way more balanced and I think overall everyone would enjoy it if it were put into the payload server.
"But if you were right and someone was using a bot then recording a demo and posting it here and having someone experienced review it tick by tick would reveal that bot and you could "catch" me."
"I was never kicked from the server?"

As I said in the admin lounge, count me in, if we're taking votes.

Does anybody have a link to the latest/current version of that modified barnblitz map?
No promises yet, we're still discussing it. We might give it a try for a week or two.

Concern: replacing yet another official map by a custom one might decrease player traffic even more. And I'm not talking about regulars. We always need random players to get the server started in the morning and late night.

I think we lose people with broken maps like barnblitz.

With the regulars we have, we'll basically turn away just about anyone with the stalemates on that last point. I don't think it will affect anything. We still have the important official maps like Goldrush and Badwater.
Not all those who wander are lost.

I'll add barnblitz pro to Payload server later this week.
If feedback is negative or we lose too much traffic because of it, we'll switch back to the official version.

I haven't forgotten about Barnblitz Pro, it's installed on the server, but there are issues with the map chooser plugin. We're using a custom made plugin, and it's been a bit buggy to replace the official barnblitz with the custom one, that's why it's taking longer than I planned.

I'll work on it again this week. I'll update this thread when I solved the problem.
