It would be a good map for time trails, though... take turns racing laps as fast as you can.  I would suggest making each trial 2 laps, though, to force people to make the last lap drop at least once.  It would also be good for a 4 on 4 scrim.  Not good for general racing, though, because of the lack of shortcuts.

played it once, and it is a PAIN for me, because... I don't know, but I am assuming that a 15 minuet lap time isn't good :P
It's a cool map though, and IF I spent the time to learn it, It would be fun. Its AWSOME for slayer, there ARE many hiding places. (theres a secret one that has two mongooses in it, but I can't remember where.... :P) pity its not in the rotation.

Mongooses only show up on races if you go into the secret room.  It takes a long time to get there.  Sometimes you mess up and have to take your time to get there again.  The only way to play with mongooses without going to the secret room is if you play CTF or some other game mode.  I would just lock this thread, because the decision has already been made.  It is not best to be in the rotation.

Probably one of the best looking  gamer designed maps ive seen in a long time for any game. But all these years past and i still cant bring myself to love it for race. I know you can get the hang of it but it takes longer than most maps to do so. Im very picky on my personal preference for a CE Race server, its not just my self and the other racers to consider, its those who aint used to race, or the game physics, and personally i wouldn't have it in the map rotation due to the difficulty level.

But your in "beta" testing maps on the server so go for it! Its also a popular CE map.

One quick question:  How do you get from the 2nd-to-last-nav to the score nav?  I've tried a few ways but none of them seem to work.  Of course, walking solves the problem, but how do I do it with a hog?
You blame me?  Remember it had to get past 10 other players before I saw the ball.

Thanks to Spidey for this sig!                                                                                                                  .

go up one of the sides(doesnt matter which) and try and Aim yourself to land into the Hog Bay

also there are 3  shortcuts to navs that I know of, one is right to the middle of the map(in terms of nav rotation) and you need to do a hard spin to the left when coming out of the hog bay to land down there(you can walk but its harder), and the other is to take the various teleporters around the map to get the navs.

If we dont keep it with a race gametype(which I hope we do, cause I LOVE IT) then id at least like to see either Sniper no Shield Slayer version, or a CTF Version

I spin off either one of the floating pathways and land on the nav below. (I prefer the LEFTHAND pathway, as you get the benefit of the wall along the right edge of the grassy area below helping you to stay on it!)

Yes, on that narrow strip of grass where 1st nav is!  :o

It takes 3-4 tries to find the right spot, but it the fastest way that I know!
