Just died . I was wondering are you supposed to be able to call the drop ship before you get the files?

You don't have to get the files. You just have to escape.

The "files" are just the backstory. The actual level consists of your escape from the compound.

Thanks ValKor. Yes, I have made a few maps before, although none even remotely like this.

Great map. I finally found the files heh. defence of the LZ is pretty hard. I eventually ended up setting up about 5 sentry guns and a bunch of fire mines around it and then having all of my marines camp that north east wall section (since it only has one way ramp up to it).

I just ran my team back to the start and blasted them as they came through the door.

Cool. I'd advise having less open space though, there's not much room for tactics when it's mostly a big open area.

Omg... Why does every one have a huge gamma? Don't you know it burns normal people eyes when you take a screenie... Nice map.

The screens were almost pitch black, I had to manually enhance them in photoshop I think it's you who has too high gamma, they look fine here

Mmm too much open area, yeah. But the LZ strategy is just about positioning anyways. Or you can be cheap like Mek and run

Thanks for the mirror, Killing.
