This map was inspired during a night of festivities with my friends. We were making drinks with a blender and I had the idea to build a map that WAS a blender! This map is a Deathmatch map that is one big open room with a central pillar that rotates with long “blender” blades that are attached. Initially I tried to make this map so players can walk on the blades to get to the central pillar, but if you mistimed your leap you would get chopped up by the edge of the walkways. This posed many problems as characters who did not stay in the exact center of the blade took damage even if they were on walking on it properly. So the damage from the blades was removed and that made this map a lot more playable. This is a very chaotic map but a blast to play.
Here is a view from the top of this area. You can see the central pillar easily with the blades spinning around it. The green stuff within the pillar is the antigravity field. Get in and float to a different level!
Down in the base of this level there are lots of goodies but there is also lots of danger. All those that miss their jumps or get knocked around always end up down here.
Need a break? Duck back into the shadows on the central tiers. It is the best place to take a breather and to scout out your enemies!
From on high you can get a great view of the action and try to get a few sneaky sniping shots off. That blue bot on the blade looks like a good target…
One thing to note is that it does have a strange bug sometimes in multiplayer mode: The central pillar does not appear to rotate but the physics still exist (You can see people floating around the room, obviously on a blade but you can not see it visually). I have tried to fix this but have been unsuccessful so far, I think it might be a bug in the engine and not the map itself. If you have any ideas or thoughts please let me know!
