Great Map CryoKeen and contributors,

Played it a few weeks ago but did not realise it was in Beta, Very good lighting and design.

Also gives mappers a few pointers on what can be achieved if you want to break away from the
"Black Mesa" style of game play towards a more "Fun" based puzzle layout.

Did not experience any crashes or issues when I played (Pretty sure it was on Adams home server), one other player joined for a bit but I think they left or dropped rather than crashed.

One very minor thing I noticed while playing was that in the room where you are between the 4 different colored boxes (Red, Blue, Green Yellow) there is a crouch position above the respawning health pack, from where monsters cannot get/claw you. I abused this and "camped there" killing everything that spawned around me. (Don't know if this was intended to happen.) But it does make that sequence of spawing aliens easy to win.

oh so you finally released it

Really fun stuff. The second monster in the present box failed to leap to the center platform. I'm not sure if it's a recurring bug. I've played it through the map with 4 players with no issues or crashes.

Some bugs:
-The rocket in the room next to the bathroom doesn't move when I break the cap (I saw a smoke trail fly across the bathroom, though).
-You can grab the blue cube through the wall in the last hallway (not sure if this matters).
-Radio in the last hallway does nothing?

Other than that, cool map!

Why the hell do I keep randomly dying?

you... shouldn't? could you tell me where this happens?

you are jumping over and avoiding the electric blue cylinders in the thing, right?

heh sorry if i sounded like an ass Devile, I debated having this texture under the advertisements and noiseypink texture


but i decided against it due to it being visually distracting to my ocd wanting the spawn to look a certain way.

i am very sorry for the unnecessary discomfort of being exploded :(

How were you able to beat in only 15mins? It me took over an hour to beat it, maybe its just I kept getting distracted by all the nice detail and textures in the map, not to mention the awesome music that played during the birthday present room. I love that song so much, thanks for adding it! Overall I really had alot of fun playing it and I didn't experience any problems, so good job everyone very nicely done.

This map is really something. As soon as you spawn you are bombarded with a shitton of weird colors and images. Glowing skeletons are flying around, chasing you. You go through some sort of obstacle course where you must dodge captain picard. Birthday presents starts sending all sorts of monsters flying at you. Suddenly you're in a room fighting weird blue soldiers and in a xen cave with an apache and a huge chasm. This is possibly the most surreal thing I have ever seen. It's pretty great.

Definitely one of my favorite maps by you, Keen. I think you're the first member to have a map BOMS'd after being permabanned. Excellent work. :rolleyes:

I have been unban for good behavior! :D

I will continue to work on Part2 of this project after I push Halloween out this Halloween.
