hehe that was the first one for you but it was actually first playtested in the aplha stage and then went through quite a few beta releases before the release client

It was a first for me, and what a first that was :lol:

I have to cut down about 2 megs of texture usage and remove about 125 entities.  I've got most of the texture usage issues done, and the entity thing I'll probably conquer by the sinple act of killing all the little glow-lights.

I so very look forward to seeing this official  <3


I'd imagine that the atmosphere probably DOES add a large number of entities.  perhaps you could link some of them together (we're talking brush-based entities here, rather than point based - usch as consolidating all the 'func_hurt' brushes and the like into a singe entity) if nothing else at all?


*shrug*


Otherwise, much love PB  <3

I had linked many of the brush ents together, it was part of what caused some sections in B6 to become extra-laggy... so I had to de-link some.  I'm going to try some brush trickery later to try and recover some of the things I had been using light glows for (marking handrails, ladders, etc), but only after I get a 'legal' version of this baby together.

Hows it coming plague? I'm getting a real itch to play this map again. And I'd LOVE to see it go official. Since I lost all my files on my old HD I don't even have a copy of it to walk around in.  :(

Whoa, officialness would be nice. Can't wait to try it again.

<3 PB.

I still say the pit resnode should be renamed to "THE PIT OF UNRELENTLESS GORGE PAIN AND SUFFERING res node".  I've lost count of how many times i've tried to get in that res node as a gorge...all of which were unsuccessful.

I beleive its impossible.  The ladder is fine, but once you jump down, the force of the landing forces you down the slope of the mouth and you fall into the pit of dewm.

Anyways, i never had a single doubt in my mind that this map would become an official map.  It had excellent atmosphere, and nice balancing.  The hive rooms were very interesting.  I felt like just sitting there and admiring them.  It was amusing to see Sonic and Esuna try to break the nanogel tank XD.

Of course, the pt games were generally small, and I never saw a real fullfledged serious game on it, but if the pt-general-screwaround games were this fun and cool, thorstation is probably going to be one of my favourite maps once (mark my words, ONCE) it gets included as an official NS Map.

Sorry I've been gone - between new work, COH, and moving to a new place I've been real busy.

I sent a copy of thorstation to flay, and never heard anything but a 'thanks for the info'.

Any chance of ever getting an official release?  Even if it's not going to go into NS I would love to be able to play this one publically.
