The idea itself was quite simple: a CTF map, which is actually a race, which happens inside an infinite tube with a zone velocity set to forward and no gravity, built with warp zones to a point where the last one loops back to the first one closing the entire thing, with CTF flags to cap.
In terms of gameplay, you could get weapons on the way to eliminate your enemies with, and if you go against an obstacle you die, and could also get through boosters and such, so it's essentially a BT map as well.
The catch though, and why this could be hard to do, is that I had planned to do 12 sections to be long enough, and have each one be in a different area, as if each warp zone was actually a portal to another world, meaning: one in a city, another in a jungle, lava area, underwater, space, etc (you get the idea), but those areas would also affect the zone itself (like some lava dropping in the middle and you have to avoid it, or big tree from the jungle which broke into the section, that sort of thing).
And this could involve some work to look pretty enough, and it would potentially require some scripting to work properly in some aspects.
This is mainly why I am not really participating this time, I would rather develop all the necessary technology first to make a better job out of it, than doing a much poorer one for this contest and not even submitting it on time, while delaying other projects.
But if someone wants to run with this idea, be my guest, I will be looking forward to it.
