this badboy is on OM, y'all can play it tonight, it's on the menu ;) i think mcriot want's a gameplay test tonight.
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

Played yesterday

Postby oldf_dr_death » Tue May 27, 2003 8:27 pm

That is one sweeeet map. Played it for the first time yesterday, never did quite figure out my way from hive to hive but was fun trying. Warning, if you play it, look for the hidden rooms (accessible near the ceiling) and if you are gorging, to get around the map you sometimes will have to evolve back to skulk to move between areas or build DT or OT to climb up onto to get to the next area. Also, those dark passageways are murder for getting lost in. I was amazed at the number of passageways and the details. Look forward to more.

It certainly seems to have evolved -- textures, lights, everything. Cool.

Yet another version ns_fishtank10_v2.zip once again to install, you should be able to simply extract it into your ns directory.

FIXES:
- all glass has been adjusted for better seethroughness
- added more lights to dark areas
- toned down the strobing lights (not as many)
- added a few more pillars and walkways
- more patheways and ladders to make it gorge friendly (Gorge CAN get to all hives without evolving) [still being worked on this will improve in time]
- decreased SOME lag issues (still needs work)
- fixed some weldable problems
- tried making the rdyroom less interactive with the map to avoid building structures in it (still not done)
- easter egg can no longer be seen from the comm chair
- increased fun with easter egg

Bugz/Known Issues:
- can still place structures in ReadyRoom
- Major Lag Spikes (needs more testing) Possiable problems - Observation Deck to big needs more doors - Server is cranky - Something I have yet to figure out.
- More Obstructions on Ceilings less JP friendly
- Couple more ladders/ramps
- Possiable timer to force Marine Large Door open in case marines choose not to leave marine start out of lameness.
- Adjust lighting
- Adjust texture lighting
- Fix Easter Egg and Add more to Easter Egg

Hold onto 10 fer me Sput, if you don't mind, I think I'll be reformating my comp again this weekend, wouldn't want to loose my stuff again =).

(Note to self send more data to other people to hold onto as backups!)

hrm thought.., we should start internet storage for important backups and stuff, we can like backit to multiple hardrives through multiple people ;) hehe not to serious about this, but it sure woulda saved me the grief I've had this month =). Glade to hear theirs still a version of my rmf file out there though (Thank You Sputster, Your my Hero :)
