Ah, all right then. I just had another Idea.

You see, I was playing "Sonic the Hedgehog" on my old Mega Drive not so long ago, and suddenly, a thought came to me-
"A Green Hill Zone Arena!"
So after that, I thought for a little while as to what it could include-
  • Spike panels which fire Spikes upwards (Like in the original)
  • The original GHZ music playing as you fight (IE. Like in the Battlebots IQ Arena)
  • Bobbins (Bumpers) mounted in two corners, which cause slight damage and knockback when driven into. (Not shown in picture-LAZY ME.)
  • Red Springs mounted into the remaining two corners, which do not cause damage, but can launch a heavyweight into the centre of the arena, or a lightweight between the two of them under the right circumstances (Also not shown. LAZIER ME.)

And that's about it! This is only the first version of it though, so I guess improvements to the design can be made. Oh, and just for Naryar, there aren't any pits within the arena! XD

I'm not good at modding arenas, but I guess that that could be made from the combat arena.

this will sound goofy, but how about an arena that looks like a giant air matress, that when you move it can bounce you and/or you're apponenets and spinners, popups and others can pop the arena and deflate it?
EDIT: for GFs, Idea, could this be Imported directly into the game as an arena skin:

Not bad, but maybe we could look towards actual game textures for that.

How about an arena where 30 seconds into the match the Gravity changes to the center of the arena.

Or it's low gravity. Very low.
Put this onto your signature if you were part of this crappy fad in '03.

Not heard of this exact idea. That would be a fairly easy arena too.
Input is appreciated. :)

kinda the reverse of my space arena ? where the gravity crushes robots  :mrgreen:

GF's idea could be done depending on the GMF's you use .. ? I think I could do it with the small arena and the palm tree GMF from the Bahama's arena. then add hazards?

or simple adding the palm trees to the combat zone and move the spikes

Low gravity mode (or even better no gravity mode) is awesome to watch.

I had a simple idea: just a cylindrical arena like the Drum of Death, but much simpler: with no hazards and a flat ground. Would probably make for less pinning in a corner and immobilizations.

Oh and i will do it myself - i must just get how these over 9000 lines GMF arena files work. Won't be soon anyways...

Maybe make the ground and walls deal more damage as well... i think i can add the material=metal command to the different parts of the arena, now if it is in the .py or .gmf, this is another thing...
So has anyone made this map?  The only map that fits UHW well atm are drum of death.  Would be great to have a simpler version of it.

low lag arena would fit them ?

any big arena could make them fit by simply moving start positions

I made some arenas... WITH RCT2!
Gauntlet - Small Arena with pit. Very simple.

Nitro - Another Small arena, You can get burned if you will get OOTA from the corners.

Black Hole - This is little larger, It has 4 Pits where is flames. And next to is Combat arena

Steel Dome - This arena has saws which can drop you to water & Pit in the middle of the arena

Jungle Arena - My latest arena. It has 4 Flamegrills and when 1 minute has been, The middle walls will drop and you can fall to the pit, OM NOM NOM NOM!

Those are some good arenas there, Jonzu. I particularly like the "Black Hole" stage.
It reminds me of the "Rough Justice" stage from Destruction Derby Arenas on PS2!

Thanks GF93! I think that RCT2 is the best game where you can make arenas...
My favourite is maybe Jungle arena but the part 2 will come on next weekend.  :mrgreen:

OK.

The plants were cool, too. I'd love to chuck CRITICAL EMERGENCY in there, to be honest! ^_^
