BMS Tower Defense

#1

Hey guys!

I started playing around with AI scripting in BMS a few days ago. These little experiments evolved into a brand new game mode! It’s been through a number of revisions, and I now feel it’s ready for a public release.

The basic idea is that you defend yourself against 10 waves of enemies (hgrunts, agrunts, aslaves, etc) while also protecting an objective. For each wave you defeat, you’re given a battery inside your spawn.
The battery is used to unlock features of the map (health\suit chargers, sentry turrets and weapon crates) by placing it in empty battery containers around the map (signified by a grey box).

The map is just dev textured, but the map is more about the gameplay concept than it is about the art.

NOTE: Play with sv_cheats set to 1, there’s a little surprise after each wave.

This is for multiplayer, right?
If it is, call it BM Co-Op

Oh yeah! I forgot to try this! Good job, OP. Much more fun than I anticipated. Your weapon unlocking system is really creative, too.

This actually has quite some potential. Just thinking about what would happen if some good level designers started utilizing this concept.

Short and sweet, I really enjoyed it. It certainly has a lot of potential, and could be made into something a whole lot more awesome. I got a little confused after unlocking multiple crates to determine which was which, but that was my only complaint gameplay wise. With a little fine tuning and some excellent map design, this is a really fun gamemode.

Anyone else notice he has a Devloper title now? I wonder if that means this will become an official game mode of BMDM?

I was just wondering something similar. It’s not impossible, and it was quite a fun map. A full gamemode on it could be enjoyable.
