For people who didn't know valve has released their Scream Fortress 6 - Doomsday_event a couple of nights ago, which includes spells from last year Scream Fortress plus a new gimmick using go-karts/bumper cars.
Now the reason I wanted to post this thread was to talk about the new update and why I like tf2maps.net. For people who didn't know there is a lot of people out there who are constantly making new map content for us to enjoy and if they are well enough received valve puts that map into their default rotation. I'm guessing a lot of you know that already.
I have been following various mappers and been watching a few videos on how to make maps for tf2, which of course lend me to tf2maps.net site. I also follow their main steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/TF2Mappers
Well last night I came across this video by a mapper called UEAK Crash.
In less than a day someone has uploaded a concept of a map for kart racing, that someone is called Fr0Z3n. There are more maps being made as we speak.
I just wanted to let you know about this possible new game mode and that I think it's awesome how something like this can be made for a game I love to play.
I have also been going to play test days for new maps by following IMP events (impromptu) via their steam group, mainly to be able to see new maps in development, to help mappers by giving them feedback on their maps about how it plays / do I like it and why.
If it wasn't for this steam group I wouldn't of come across this racing map.
So if you interested in playing it why not download the map from tf2maps.net and either try it local or put it up on a server nugde nudge.

I like the new update. The mini games are great. Don't really want to play TF2 and only play that mode tho. Might aswell go play Mario Kart then So it's good for an hour, then it just gets the same old.

I kinda agree with you there eM. Its fun for short brusts, When I've been on any of the racing maps for bumper cars, people tend to get bored after 15mins or so and start getting of the cars and start attacking xD. Nothing beats a proper game on cp map.
But I find the way people are creating new content for this silly "mini game" is interesting in its self. I think I enjoy learning how mapping of say different layouts shape the way people play maps, either it being a bumper car map or a normal CP map.
I want to make my own normal mode map at some point, But just taking in any ideas from exploring the many maps out there.
If you are still interested in playing some racing maps, even if for a short time, then here is a list of maps that are out atm. (note they are Aplhas and so they are no way finished)
