Title: Is it possible for a TFC map to be gay?
Post by: Nuggs on July 08, 2019, 04:07:47 PM
If you asked me this question yesterday I would have said no, a TFC map cannot be gay. Sure there are silly maps such as smear_the_queer with its teletubbie theme and sounds but I would argue it’s more tongue in cheek humor then homosexual.

Enter the skills map ramp_boys_have_more_fun

I enjoy playing obscure skills maps because you never know what you’re going to find. So when a map vote comes up with a name like that I had to try it.

Not sure what I was expecting with a name like that but it’s a strafe map that’s covered wall to wall with some rather questionable images. It made me reflect on the above topic of whether a map could actually be gay because holy shit that map is something else. I made it to jump 5 before I had to alt+tab before my wife started asking questions

It’s on the evil skillZ server too if you’re feeling adventurous

Just take a look "readme". Needed an american champ piper to pipe that map as spaz said. Have fun and good luck if you are interested.

So... I was stoned. And saw this post. First thought "Gay? How can a map be gay... I don't understand"

Wow.

I don't know what I expected.

Whoever created this map... But why...

I've played that map on funtown I think. It is gay because of all the male porno type picks but the map itself from what I remember isn't the worst. Maps like garage are much more gay.

the ramp maps are all uniquely themed, however I would not call them 'gay' simply for following the same theme.. a lot of these maps were created by one individual who.. from what I remember.. is very passionate about exercising/working out. I personally like these 'ramp maps' for the skills it teaches, however I can also see why some people would avoid them..

I believe the map you mentioned to start this topic is EXTREMELY tame as far as ramp maps go, if you want a spicy map, you may want to check out ramp_paradise. If you can't make it to the four leaf clover, you aren't cool enough to hang with fit men.

This is where I first discovered ramp maps. (http://squishysbatcave.clanservers.com/)

I think it was one that map when master told me to increase my fps, which makes it much easier...imo. Also took that advice to nyro_strafe (favorite map) and got sub 2 minutes.

Please elaborate

I run 125fps, am I handicapping myself on ramp maps with this fps?

60 fps = hard mode
550 fps = easy mode

Learn how to circle strafe and fps becomes irrelevant

I too was wondering how pipethis_ifyoucan fit into his category as I played it before and don recall any flaming content, so I went back to check. I suppose I never tried to join the multiskillz team before 😅 lol that was pretty funny

And for the record I could only beat jump 1 and it was total bullshit

I assume circle strafe means hitting the ramp and doing a reverse turn mid air  to hit the ramp again with more speed. Most ramp maps are impossible without circle strafe I would imagine.

Either way I’m going to try out 500fps later cause there are many ramp maps that are too difficult for me and would like to be able to complete them.

Makes me wonder why goldsrc games are so weird with FPS settings

Yea its the trick map for pipers. Just j5 has the most points on that map. The others are easy of course if you know. I offered that map because its the most annoying map for all classes. So i didnt want to insult people. If you understand me wrong. I am sorry about that.

Just to be clear, as there is some confusion in the thread, I don’t mean gay as an insult or in a negative connotation, I mean literally homosexual.

For reference I’ve attached a screen shot of the map in question
