    EDIT: shame that I never commented on the above post. Nice read, Moses. Such stuff surely builds up atmosphere in a map, especially when played explorer-style (single player). Well, I have said it several times, Sulfure is the map I like best, for several reasons, including this.
    Nice find LF. I didn't know about the Look Around You on sulphure. As for the map, I'm glad to know that its your favorite.

    Every single PDA and Intro/Debrief was made by Moses. And yes, they are super nice. The map intro is my favorite part, followed by the Crabshack poem.

    Yes, Syntek could take some pointers from the way the Look Around You scientists careful dispose of their experimental apparati.

    I updated my text for this map in order to give it as a creative writing sample to an undisclosed organization. I'd going to share it with you now; I think it's much improved.



    [Map Intro]

    A pop and a hiss.

    Conrad the Sarge suddenly remembered he had a job to do. He sat up fast and grimaced, bracing himself on the edges of the hibernation pod. After a moment of nausea, he grunted and began to stand.

    Faith shoved a cigar in his face, "One a day. To quit is my goal. Say it," and quickly turned away.

    Crash reclined in his pod, hands behind his head, surfing SpaceChan on his HUD, "Visions of Elvis dancing in my head..."

    "Pop a Syntek sanity pill, Murphy, and I say that as your doctor," Bastille scowled.

    Sarge strode to where Wolfe lay dormant and leaned down, dropping ash on his face. Wolfe's eyes bolted open and he yelped like a dog. The Sarge stood and belted, "Briefing in five!"

    Adele the Cat stretched her calves while negotiating some nutri-pills from her belt.

    Crash eyed her, "Careful, kitten. Those'll go straight to your ass."

    Wild-eyed, she tensed and blurted, "At least I don't eat that processed bean paste, nerd. Everybody knows that shit leads to an oral fixation."

    "Now wait just a darn minute," Crash squinted.

    ---

    Sarge hopped down from the ops ladder, slotted a secure-mem into the table console and gave a fingerprint. "So what're we doing out here, Ship?"

    "Good morning, campers," intoned Hyperborea Mother, "hope you're rested, because this one's a doozy."

    "Background follows:
    Sixteen days ago, the IAF received a communique from a passive-mode sensor in the Phi Perseii inner belt. It had detected a thermal bloom from a moon orbiting one of the sub-stellar masses, about 5 AUs out. Directional wide-band later indicated an expanding debris field and additional active thermals from the moon's position. Estimated crustal damage to the moon is rated 'OMG-wt' on the Torino-Marx scale. Speed of expansion indicates a blast strength of over ten gigatons.

    Phi Perseii is registered with Sol Authority to the Telic Corporation; they maintain a planetside facility and an unmanned geostationary platform at the first planet. Contact name is René-N. Bonaparte of Les Patriotes Recherche et Développement.

    As you are no doubt aware, the IAF/Sol Authority Treaty forbids the development and testing of weapons of mass destruction outside of contract with the IAF. The penalty can be as severe as corporate license revocation. We appear to have a serious event on our hands, and the IAF and Sol are very interested in checking this one out. There are numerous pieces of legislation being prepared to defend against further abuses by Syntek, Telic, and the other major players.

    Objectives:
    Hyberborea-B Fast-Response Frigate has been ordered to diametric-jump to Phi Perseii, recon the devastated moon, disable the Telic Corporation orbital platform if necessary, and deploy a marine presence to the surface of the first planet in order to facilitate intelligence gathering and possible arrests. I have been ordered to extrapolate additional objectives, should they be required."

    Cat grinned, "I say we set some T-75 explosives and get the hell-"

    Jaeger nudged her to keep quiet.

    Hyperborea continued, "Strength of possible resistance is unknown and the facility layout is not on file. We are approaching the orbital insertion window. ETA: two hours. Good hunting, marines."

    "Well," grinned the Sarge, "time to earn those paychecks."



    [Mission briefing:]

    Hyperborea Mother speaking:

    We've just entered geosynchronous orbit over the Phi Perseii One planetary facility, codenamed, Sulfure. I was forced to dust their GEO platform because, like, it totally looked at me funny. Trust me; I know a track-scanner when I see one.

    Our crawlers have found conclusive evidence of illegal weapons research, specifically, the creation of a "You-Don't-Need-to-Know" device with an "Oh-Wow-You're-Not-Cleared-for-That" secondary. Recovered test data confirms that this was the device used to effect the cascading crustal destruction of the outer system moon, as recorded by our sensors.

    Be aware: All of the facility's non-automated internal communication feeds ceased approximately one week ago. I have no explaination for this. My planetary imagers are encountering severe atmospherics & directed jamming from the facility, so mapping has been sketchy. Recovered log entries indicate that two test missiles were last recorded as being stocked near the west spaceport doors. However, that bulkhead is composed of reinforced diamonoid material and is currently sealed and not connected to the main network.

    We dare not risk using explosives that close to the missiles, so you're going to have to enter from the east spaceport and make your way through the facility, open the west doors locally, and move the test missiles onto the west spaceport LZ. Better you than me! Seriously though, be safe.

    [Found on the body of a research assistant]

    I was once a jolly wittle crab ~~ Who travelled in a comfy wittle cab. ~~ I flew, not alone, to the moon ~~ of P. Perseii One (Koon-Loon), ~~ I scuttled along, gladdily belong'n ~~ A-clack-a-dud-a-chuckin' all day. ~~ But a crabby's life, ain't all twitter o'fife ~~ No, this be a sad tale of strife.

    O...Near the waste reactor, one cycle, ~~ As I frolicked with Annie Crab Pikle ~~ All of a sudden! ~~ A Corps-man came cussin! ~~ My clackers, they prepared for a tusslin'!

    But the two-legged ugly ~~ Whose reflexes were drug'ly ~~ Enhanced by a quick slip of stim, ~~ He made a'slick motion, ~~ With his Kay-One-One roast-gun ~~ And kerzappled friend Annie to fin.

    The moral o' the story, ~~ My compatriots poorly, ~~ Fools who've scorned me, ~~ IS THAT I HAVE RELEASED THE PRETTIES!! ~~ Now, you shits had best ~~ Apprehend: "Ne'er I jest!" ~~ Now, you fucks had better ~~ Understand what I said'er ~~ When I told you to LEAVE ME ALONE! LEAVE ME ALONE! *gooshing sound* YOU'RE ALL GONNA DIEE!!! AHHHHHH! *unindentifiable sound* *scream*

    Mon dieu! I am undone!
    L'amour n'est qu'une fleur flétrie au yeux de ceux qui en ont soufert... I should have avoided le escargot. It has disagreed with my stomach.

    Si cette "grosse" surprise est du même calibre que la plupart des "surprises" que m'a habitué Alien Swarm, je sens que je vais hurler...

    Merci quand même pour l'invitation! Mon modem est tout aussi allergique que moi aux jeux multijoueurs, mais je prends bonne note... de même que pour le Pulsegun!

    If this so-called "big surprise" you're talking about is as "surprising" as the Hive bugs and Elvis, then I think I'm about to freak out...

    Thanks anyway for the invitation. My modem can't stand multiplayer games (sadly, so do I), but I'll remember it... oh, and about that pulsegun!

    Sorry BCG for the folowing french text. Ill translate on demand. Tx.

    Hé bien, pour une surprise, s'en est toute une. Ton nick, une traduction pour Jean Leloup? J'aurais jamais pensé le traduire! Pour la map, oui, un peu de français. Pas tout, mais quelque écriteaux, quelques textes en français. Un petit clain d'oeuil a mon Québec! Je suis de la rive-sud de Montréal. Si tu te décide a venir jouer en ligne avec nous, tu me trouveras sur mon serveur, NoData & DeLiRiUm Asylum's. Il est situer aussi a Montréal, alors si tu es du coin, tu y trouveras le meilleur ping. Par contre si tu es de france, essaye n'importe quel autre, ils sont tous basé en Europe!

    Alors alors! Si tu as atteind le dépôt d'arme, tu as fais environ 25% de la map. Le bunker s'ouvre avec les reste d'un bras que tu dois trouver. Il appartenai au contact a l'intérieur de cet division de la Telic; René-N. Bonaparte. Il est sur ton chemain avant d'atteindre le dépôt, mais je ne te dis pas où! Lit les documents que tu trouveras sur ton chemin.

    Accéder au bunker dans le dépôt n'est pas nécéssaire, mais très utile! Tu y trouveras un 2eme Teslagun, une base de recharge, du T75 et une petite merveille, le Pulsegun. Sulfure est la seule map à le posséder. Utilise le minutieusement, la fin de la map te réserve une "grosse" surprise.

    Il te faudra beaucoup de patience pour compléter Surlfure, elle est une des plus grosse et des plus dificille map a avoir jamais été faite. Plusieur autres joueurs l'appele "the grand-mother of all map". J'ai mis plus de 500 heures travail dans ce bébé, ma plus belle réalisation. J'espère que tu t'y amuseras bien. NoData.

    Well, what do you know... another frenchman!

    Eh ben! اa fait plaisir de voir que, même dans le futur, le Québec existe toujours! Sur le coup, j'ai été vraiment surpris de constater que les écriteaux étaient en français!

    Je viens de l'essayer rapidement: pas mal, pas mal du tout! Je m'y intéresserai davantage quand j'aurai le temps.

    Y a-t-il un moyen d'accéder au bunker dans l'armurerie?
    (Is there a way to access the "bunker" in the armory?)

    Built on v1.3 UT3369, not tested in v1.31, and its not really needed since all the problems should been solve with the v1.32.
