    Hello!

    I was just thinking about the game mode in TF2 where one team pushes a mine cart whilst another team has to kill the players pushing it.

    Could this be recreated in ImDeity at all?

    It's fairly simple, both teams are armed with bows and arrows and simply kill the other players. Once you're killed you're out of the game. With bows and arrows, the cart cannot be destroyed either which is good. The actual play area wouldn't have to be large and just requires a few buildings and a mine cart track.

    Thanks

    Bilko

    i see this a a good idea, but with one flaw, rule 5: do not suggest something that involves multiplayer pvp, it is to laggy, and has been discussed several times.
    otherwise, this is a good idea

    I think when you get killed you should be able to respawn back into the game. Otherwise people would just focus on killing each other then pushing the darn cart around.

    This actually sounds like a pretty decent idea. Of course, a lot of factors need to be put in, such as not breaking the cart, pushing the cart at a steady rate (if needed), and the thought of how large the arena is along with how many people will be on each team. It does have potential, but it may need to be tested out a couple times beforehand. I'd like to see an attempt of this happen, but you'll want to include a lot more detail into this.

    And making a map for this would be enjoyable to make.

    This is a good idea, but sometimes the cart just flies down the track and makes it hard for the other team to beat that.

    Aye, which is why I was thinking we could have a bit of uphill downhill... this way it's hard for each team. However it is just one team pushing the cart.

    Unless we adapt the game to make it that both teams push and defend...............

    That would be sick! Maybe a arena for TF2 so you can become a heavy with diamond stuff, or a sniper with bows. Something of the sorts.

    That's a really cool idea! I would definitely participate if this was put into the game.

    Okay, so I've been messing around with some ideas and come up with what I think could be a prototype.

    I'll attach some screenshots before I start talking :p

    So this is the station where the minecart gets pushed. Upon arrival, a redstone light switches on indicating that there is a winner.

    The track goes above and underground.

    2012-05-02_10.50.03.png
    There is a powered rail which can be controlled by either team using a button next to their station.

    There are buildings where players can take refuge and shoot opposing players from.
    2012-05-02_10.50.20.png 2012-05-02_10.50.26.png
    A good view of the opposing teams powered rail button. 2012-05-02_10.50.29.png
    Hide above to quickly attack the other team when they run past!



    So those are some pictures of what I've built. It is no where near finished but I thought I would post it now.

    Some idea for how the game would run. There would be two teams who are indicated by a piece of armour for instance. One team has a leather cap, the other has leather boots. As to how players would join teams, I was looking at the towny feature list and saw that you can have open towns where players simply time /join 'red' or /join 'blue' and then they become a part of that town. Now that all players are equally split between the two teams, the game can begin. Seeing as there is a PvP element to it, I thought towny could also be used. It has a feature where you can attck other town members but friendly fire is turned off. I believe this would be ideal so that there cannot be any annoying people who just kill everybody.

    Now there are probably a multitude of problems with this idea and I'd like to hear them. There is a probably a better way of running the game other than towny, but I thought it was quite good.

    Thanks alot!

    Bilko

    EDIT: The minecart would be a storage minecart to prevent players from riding it. Thanks Confuseki
