Why this hasn´t been published on the forums?

I gave it a go and I was amazed by the level of detail. I saw several sprites glitching. because I was using software. I read the txt prior playing it, wish I didn´t read it at all though :( . But I just overlooked the line that said "polymost" because I was 100% sure you were a classic mode lover.

I´m giving it a 9 because it looks amazing (specially loved the radio equipment) but fails to provide a solid gaming experience due to the lack of action. I never watched the film but I played a Half life 2 mod based on The Thing too -named Black Snow- And I must admit both things looked very similar.

Also, I hope this doesn´t sound harsh but I didn´t get at all what was I supposed to do. I pressed like a dozen switches -ala Roch- and entered all rooms (based on automap) but nothing seemed to do anything related to progression.

I didn't post it because it's more or less just a "art" or "museum" map (hope you know what I mean) and not your normal run-and-gun map. However, I won't stop other people from creating threads and the like of course.

You're supposed to find 9 switches found throughout the base. Hit all of them and the entrance to the underground tunnel will open. A scripted sequence should activate when you approach the blood-stained box located in the large storage room (won't make sense unless you've watched the movie though).

I think this is bad *** I love how the radio in the kitchen is playing the appropriate song all you need is the chessmaster 2000 somewhere. this is actually the best recreation of the outpost from the thing that Ive seen.

I planned on adding the chess game but ran out of walls and sprites. Actually, there were a lot of stuff that I planned on adding (including a section in which you would teleport to the base as it was burning while being chased by a monster) but the limited resources said a big "FU" to that.

Really good stuff, I love the film and it was really neat to see all the locations from it mapped out like this. The film's lighting was a lot darker and moodier which was the only real difference I saw, but rather than that the map was brighter so you can see the details, which was cool. I'm impressed just how insanely detailed lots of the stuff you've put in is as well.
