This specific map was created in just a few days, maybe 2-3 days total, just to see how the mode would play. After testing with some friends for a few hours, I managed to balance and optimize the map/mode for ideally 5v5, although it should handle 10v10 or even higher.
I did not put too much work into the map itself, just enough worthy of being the very first Chicken Defusal custom map.
Along with the BSP file, will come a KV file indicating what skins are used, a CFG file, which will run all necessary configuration commands you need to play the map. If you launch the map from the WorkShop tab the process will be fully automatic, if you installed your map manually, you'll have to use the following command on console: map "cd_barn" "custom"
- 16000 Starting money
- Respawn waves
- Moving bomb
With this first release I hope to gather as much feedback as possible on the mode mainly. Feel free to suggest changes to the gameplay mechanics, I'd like to make the mode as enjoyable as I possibly can.
Thanks for your time, please comment & rate!

Something you can try if you have time is to create an admin room to set the timer for the explosion and save the state with an env_global. (If you can't add it try to add
@PointClass base(EnvGlobal) size(-8 -8 -8, 8 8 8) = env_global :
"An entity to control a game-specific global states."
