Default Temple of...?

In a serious attempt to illicit remarks like, "That's not fair!" I used my old Temple map as a basis for a new kind of themed TBD.

Yellow vs Orange.
Please note the numbers and letters on the map above.
1 = Orange Bombs (there are two)
2 = Orange only powerup (which may be a bomb or missle)
3 = Orange only health powerup (because they can't land on their base)
A = Yellow Bomb
B = Shrunken Yellow Base

The idea goes as follows: The Orange team has kidnapped the yellow base, um...shrunk it, and is holding it captive in an underground lair.

The Orange team's goal is to get the bombs from the spires of the temple and use them to destroy the (shrunken) yellow base in some dastardly evil ritual which takes place on their base (which also serves as a stand-in altar where evil rituals take place).

The yellow team's goal is, of course to stop this from happening, and of course, the best way to do so is to destroy the orange base/altar before the orange team completes their evil ritual.

I've yet to test it extensively. The bots seem to do OK, though.

Comments are welcome and appreciated. Graphics are of course in draft phase.
Here it is:

EDIT: yes it seems like a good 1de map, but I can't get into that at all. But I did have a version...
EDIT: Fixed 9,999 second bomb timer for yellow team :P

Well, 'sacrificing the base in a ritual' sounds kinda weird, but tbh I've been looking forward to someone trying out a concept for vertical TBD maps for a long time.

I'm assuming you're just going for an Aztec theme here.

So how come yellow has no powerups? And why do the orange PUs not include shields/walls?

And I'm wondering if Orange/Yellow is going to be too weak of a color contrast for team colors, esp. when you have ppl using those zebra skins...

I don't get it. Is this a one base TBD? How does the defending team win the game?

Look on top of the base. >.> It's small, but it's there.
