Hand Egg definitely, Jetpacks because they're awesome, and Hot Potato if we can get it to work.

This sounds like a truly epic Grifball MM experience.

Any idea when submissions for new maps will be called on?

Im almost done with my tower map. I should be able to get it in. Its usable for jetpack's even though its a version of vanilla.
Im not new to grifball.

And a couple of extra things i did for kicks.

And the map is ready but is very much untested for games. I finished the last of the decorating. And yes the inside room goes REALLY REALLY HIGH. But you will never get to the top anyways in a vanilla game.

Looks like it certainly would make a nice jetpack mack (if you place the capture plates up higher), which is what we've been hoping to see from the community. There seems to be interest in the variant, so it's something we hope to get into the playlist at some point.

looks pretty good, i hate to say it but you should probably use a grid over the floor cuase there are a lot of peices there and that can be a problem, i hope not though, if you need a tester let me know.

If grif is able to use a jetpack and its unlimited then i have an idea.

Ill see about working the nodes i have in the screen that pop out of the wall as a hoop like a basketball game.

Give me a hight estimate that the plate should be on. Ill place it there.
Should the start ball be up off the ground? if so how high? What hight should the players only be able to go with the bomb?

I dont know what you mean. The floor is just as smooth as if it was a grid.

As for testing. Just keep an eye out on my storage fileshare (X DRAGOHANTER X) for the map. It will show up on that fileshare. When it does, it will be open season for anyone who wants to test it. The map is called tower. I have no desc for it yet.

drift is the key word, some time when a lot of peices occupy a similar space they can shift slightly, infact some peices do this even standing alone. This can cuase slight bumps on your floors, and tends to be worse on floors with numerous peices...... ive mostly had this problem with walls, but ive seen it happen to floors and the best way to prevent this is to use a grid peice for the floor..... but if you dont have any problems feel free to x the grid ive chosen to exclude ti on several of my maps.

The floor has NO overlapping parts. The walls on the other hand do, but only if you are going really high.

parts dont have to overlap to move out of place my map clover has a few problems.... and a few others where peices that are not overlapping drift out of place..... not putting down your map just telling you something id look out for cuase that can ruin the playability of a map especially on grifall evolved.

Its a vanilla map. Worst case is a dead body sliding across the map and an arm or leg glitches for a split second and then flips out.

Ive tested the entire map with max speed and low grav and i can say that if there is a bump i have not found it.
