Skills.

Skills is a modification for half-life 2 that focuses on developement of various abilities. After valve made the decision to limit certain physics interaction on their upcoming game releases, it gave the numerous skill communities a dead end. They publically announced that there would be no more rocket jumping or conc jumping in their upcoming TF2 release. This modification brings back challanges such as rocket jumping, grenade priming, and various puzzles to an online environment once again. Once again you will be able to test your abilities to their very limits on a game that is dedicated towards these abilites. There will be a colorful variety of themes and locations for these maps, no more will you be limited to the confines of half-life 2.

Rest assured that upon release of this modification you will be playing against friendly yet fierce competitors.

How To Play:
You will spawn at the beginning of the map, you are at what is known as the first jump. You must make it to the next jump by either rocket jumping, grenade priming, using the detanators, or what ever way you find that works. You will be returned to that beginning of the jump you were on if you fail to complete it. From the map start it is a race to make it to the end of the map by going through easy to difficult challenges. There are a couple different gameplay modes: racing, top scorer, free for all. Racing is when from start to finish you try to beat your opponent to the finish line. Top scoring mode is when the person who gets the most points wins. Free for all is just easy going completion where you just try to make it to the end of the map. Typically it will be free for all on most server. You may meet certain people that wish to race. It is all up to you what type of skills mode you want to game with.

Scoring:
You will receive 100 points on most maps after completing all challenges. There is no limit to how many points you can get.

Maps
There is only one map release on this first public release. The map that is in this beta is called 'Speed'. It consists of 28 jumps of variating difficulty, it starts out easy and becomes harder as you progress. This map release is a good introduction to newbies who aren't familar with the Skills community.

Yeah. I had not realized the multiplayer would not work publically for some reason.

I'm still around, check out TFC if you are interested in this type of gaming style.
