Idea...

From game maps and mods to random artwork and writing, it's the place to be when your not at the coffeeshop or taking a nap!

Idea...

You know what would be cool? A verticle oriented CO map. Most Classic maps are pretty flat because of the work the comm needs to do. With CO type maps you could creat a nifty architecture that allows marines to "fall" to a hive. Also, it gives jetpacks more room to move around, and allows skulks to get above the jetpacks at any point in the map. I personally think it would be a great idea.

That was my original intention for co_nadir, fyi! But then as it developed, I made things flat, and it ended up being a layered map that makes no use of the the THIRD DIMENSION of DOOM. Err... yeah...

If I do make another co map, I intend to make a very vertical map, but for now I'm in the process of making an NS map. (Have layout, just need time and the gumption to do something)

Ever tried co_freefall? I mean the latest version of it with the marine spawn in the ship in the docking bay and the alien hive accesable only via elevators, updraft fans and jetpacks through tunnels. It's a fun change from the usual co_map layout.

I played that a few months ago, it was a great map, just took some getting used to. The fan provided a really entertaining time when I tried to pistol-shoot falling skulks while I went up and down while they tried to follow me. The entire ship area was a great addition to it as well.

One of the first times I ever played ns, I played co_freefall (I think, didn't know the map name, but it sounds like the map). I remember seeing a heavy armor, and thinking it was the coolest thing ever, and doing everything within my power to be a heavy from that point forward. I really sucked lol...2-27 ftw

there was a server out there that I frequented before I really got into OldF that was free fall only, 24/7

They had about 2-3 different free fall maps... apparently it's more of a genre now

I want a map that is co_readyroom. Which is basically a rip-off of the secret room in nancy, but there is a hive between the 2 jumper things, and a cc under the hive. And let the party comence!
