There is a custom cart:
This map is on server rotation at FITH GAMING: 220.127.116.11:27015
Plans for the hopefully the final beta version (Beta 7) and future final version.
-Redesign the final point, to satisfy both attacking and defending parties. (I'll do my best.)
-Finish the map and crank out a final version in 5-6 years. (Maybe soon if I have time.)
My thoughts on the Speed Boost:
-Testing beta 6, its a fun mechanic, and it has not proven to be overpowered yet. I can always remove it, if it seems to broken for the game. (The benefits of still being in beta. :rolleyes: )
-My goal was to encourage more cart team pushing.
If I have some free time, i'll put some explanations for the new changes I made.
June 6th, 2013: Beta 6c (Not the full changelog but, has the main changes on it.)
Changelog from Beta 5a to Beta 6c:
-Speed Boost (200% Faster) - 5+ Players on Cart

-In Speed Boost, Cart becomes a weapon, rocket trails ignite players and front becomes a ramming powerhouse.
-Drastically change pathways toward the final control point. I wanted remove the cold spots (Underused player area) in the map and bring them "warmth." Meaning new paths are easier to get to.
