Banana Bay

A chaotic payload race taking place along the cliffs of a tropical cove. Utilizes the finale from Cactus Canyon.

Now in the game! No need to download it here, unless that's your thing.

Thanks! plr_bananabay_rc4; 951657912

This is a rotationally symmetrical map designed around a rail bridge with a train that acts as a hazard, flow redirector, and finale. The antithesis of room-corridor-room syndrome.

Payload Race and team deathmatch working hand in hand. The payload paths are kept near each other to maximize chances of cart vs cart battles. The size of the map keeps everything close by, and the density of paths keeps every class's options open. At the end the action is focused on that central bridge as both teams are trying to get their cart hit by the train. So far I haven't seen this map stalemate (except one time when I goofed and made a team's rollback zone too big) with most matches lasting 4 to 8 minutes.

Flanking classes have a field day with all the routes. Close range classes enjoy the twisting tunnels and alternate paths. Snipers have their sniper vs. sniper deck, with numerous sightlines in the battlefield for the ones with good game sense. Engineers have a few good defensive spots, but there are several ways to counter each of them. Ninjaneers will have a challenge setting up with great payoff. Jumping classes can make use of all the different levels. Medics don't have much opportunity to use ubers to break strong holds, but are still a great benefit.
