Thermal Detonator Volleyball! Now that sounds like one very painful sport…
What we have here is a small court for playing the said sport. It is fairly simple in design, with a spectator area around the top, and the volleyball court down below. The court is of course divided into two, one side is for the red team and the other side is for the blue team. The court is reached by using a teleporter button at each side of the spectator area. A nice feature here is that only red players can use the teleporter on the red side, and only blue team players can use the teleporter on the blue side. Good thinking there! :)
Down below on the court, you can select which weapon you will use. The namesake thermal detonator, or if you want, you can use the rocket launcher! As far as I understand, the principle of the game is that you fire at the opposing team, and then each team uses force push to push the detonator or rocket back to the other team and so on, until someone makes a mistake and…BOOM!
If you thought that wasn’t death-defying enough… the floor is also breakable! So the more a team looses a round, the more of the floor on their side of the court crumbles. Personally I really liked this feature, it adds that bit extra depth to the gameplay. Once you have finished your game, a new game can be started by pressing the ‘new game’ button on one side of the court.
There are a few things that could be improved upon however. Mainly the map needs some proper lighting, as no light compile seems to have been used here, which means the entire map is lit up at full brightness. The other thing is that there is no music in this map. Personally I think some good fast paced music would be good for a sports themed map such as this.
All in all a good idea for a map here, and a nice addition to our collection of JK2 / JKA Sports related maps. If you guys fancy a go, then give it a download! :)
