Here's a shot from one of the reconaissance spiders secretly dropped beforehand by IAF Intelligence, showing the arrival of our marines:


Before the mission Murphy managed to hack security systems and intercept this image from a failing security cam in an attempt to discover more about the facility's interior and layout:


This image is taken from the facility's maintainance crew training guide, the eggs were jokingly photoshopped in by unknown vandals:


And here's another highly classified shot from a security camera, showing the facility's storage area, in the extreme left an unknown bioluminescent reaction thought to occur during parasite stasis:

That's like saying "I ran faster but you crossed the finishline first."

It makes you look like a ph00l.

Thanks to all. Last weekend was pretty hard for me and my familly. Hes now rest in peace.

The good news now! Map is done! Really! But i have a major problem! The bots dont do the difference between a bridge or a lava pit! And they fall down most of the time! So if we want the map single player friendly, i dont have the choice, i need to wait and find a way to prevent that. I have msg Carth about it, but if someone have an idea, or know a specific class bloker for bot (but not for controled marine), give me the hint! Caus doing a map of 25 minutes and see your hack falling down on a pit for no damn reason is not really cool!! Thanks

Yes, stop them following a path that makes them walk off by adding the PathNode to the ProscribedPaths list. Show paths in the 3D view, and check any that look like something a lemming would do, and disable them with proscribed paths. Then they'll follow the bridge route

Blocking volume would be nice as well, but if you only want it to block bots and not people, I don't think that's possible. I tried such a thing, and couldn't get a class that blocked only bots.

Aye, pathnodes are probably what you want.

About the bot blocking volume: suppose someone jumps a marine into the blocking volume, then switches to a different marine, what would happen?

The marine would be past or inside the blocking volume?

Map already have PathNodes, but they just dont make any difference between the pathnode on the other side of the pit, or the one on the bridge... Not enough distance between each side of my bridge?

I was hoping for something a bit more catastrophic... like crashing your computer.

Do what I said, and mark the pathnodes between the two sides that don't use the bridge as ProscribedPaths, and the bots won't follow them.

thanks a lot! But here the true:

-Fuzzy_Bunny found a way to unseal the first door without starting the east platform spawn.
-Ki!ler-Mk1 found a way to roofhax the entire vent/ammo room/panel section.
-Asellus found a way to fall back to the south elevator even if the crane with the huge blue crate block the way.
-I found a way to get the pannel without doing the vents.
-I found a way to roof hax the circular train ramp, allow me to reach the west platform via the roof without problem.

New fixed version soon. I dont have the choice. By using every hax, i manage to do the map in 7 minutes today.
If you find another hax of any kind, could you PM me about it? And a screenshot could help me a lot. Thanks.

Yup. The major problem of the map is the multi-level design...

Antiportals are your friends! Just put them in floors and the odd elevator shaft.
