I posted this over in the foundry but figured its relevant here too...

"The Space Race" - An alternate way to PVP!

I built this map last night as a fun mini game to play with my fleet mates.

As it stands its a multiplayer ONLY map, so bring friends!

Here is a video of the map in action!
The Space Race Demo

Im going to try and implement some AI racers in the track and possibly even a few other tracks as either stand alone races like this one or a bunch of tracks to make a "championship" style play where multiple tracks have to be completed one after the other.

Please give it a shot or watch the video before writing this off... Me and my buddies had a scream racing each other last night!

Only a SINGLE sentence popped to my mind:

Use the force Luke! *pew pew torps*

No serious, it looks fun but it seems to be an escort only thing as you need to maneuver fast and quick.

Funny... Everyone has said that that played it.

Shame theres no static targets in the foundry like a turret, a trench run would be pretty cool!

I...love this. Why in the name of Shatner's mantits couldn't we have had something like this instead of the winter event footrace?

Moar plz. What does the foundry have in the way of environmental hazards? Like add some obstacles and stuff. Chroniton turrets... tractor beams... can you spawn NPCs that will only use target engines or VM?

Seriously that was really creative. Good work and make more!

If there was added hostile stuff that attacked you during the course it would make it interesting, like static turrets and the such. Full impulse the whole way sounds boring.

Id love to add turrets but foundry dont support it yet. Ill mess around with effects see if we get some obstacles in there to spice it up!

Looks like fun.

Were you using Right Mouse Click + Left Mouse Click? Much easier to control flight with that.

Also, are there things that you can get stuck on? Or can you pretty much just slide along the walls through most of it? If it's the latter, I'll never be able to beat our fleetmate and his impulse speed of 1,211.77.

Oh yes the borg walls can be pretty sticky if you catch them... the incline and decline can be a catch unsuspecting players also. And for the love of god, be careful with evasive maneuvers!

Also, if you want an idea of how this was made, fly the course the other direction and you will notice a few escape point that allow you to leave the track and see it from the outside!

I so need to play this. I agree. This type of mission should be made for the Summer Event. Good job!

What about asteroids? Surely you can screw about with a bunch to make a course? And MINES! Put some dead areas in as obstacles or something...
