The maps of 5.0

Today we would like to present the new maps arriving with version 5.0 of Sven Co-op, as well as a major map update. We hope what you see will be to your liking.


Desert Circle
Created by the-middleman, this map places the players in a wide-open desert where they must infiltrate a heavily defended castle and kill the king inhabiting it. The players must select a class and then sneak around in trenches outside the castle, hiding from snipers, and capturing flags along the way.


Black Mesa: Special Tactics Sector
In this brand new map by Trempler, players are divided into 4 teams who must build up a force of NPCs to fight the other teams’ NPCs in various arenas. The teams can upgrade their NPCs using points gained automatically over time or received by winning rounds. The teams also gain points in random bonus rounds where the players must fight each other in the arenas themselves. In these bonus rounds, points are sometimes scored purely by killing other players, but occasionally they also have objectives, such as retrieving certain objects for extra points.


Fortified 1: Assault on Death Station
In this level by Nih, the players must assault a space station/death station constructed by an insane Super Scientist. One player assumes the role of a commander who is provided with an overhead view of the map. The commander selects which weapons and items to equip players with, calls in airstrikes, spawns allied reinforcements, and generally guides the players in their mission. The remaining players must work together to hack terminals on the death station to gain rewards and delay the activation of a doomsday weapon.


Reverse Turret Fortress
A major update has been prepared for the Turret Fortress level by Nih, which showcases the new item_inventory feature. A new gamemode called “Reverse Turret Fortress” is now available for players to choose on map start, and this gamemode is essentially the opposite of the original turret defense gamemode. The players must now assault the fortress themselves, and they must do this by carrying a flag to 4 checkpoints, while protecting the carrier against enemy guards and turrets. The players are able to damage the fortress defenses or otherwise gain advantages by infiltrating the fortress and using certain items inside, such as an EMP device to disable turret construction. The players must also choose between a selection of different classes.



That's it for now. Many other smaller map updates have also been prepared for 5.0, and you can view some of them in the changelog we posted last year. Many changes have been made to the game since the posting of that changelog, however, and there will probably be a few other map-related surprises later on... If you want, you can play both Desert Circle and Fortified already, by downloading them from our Map Showcase forum. Both of the maps have been improved for the 5.0 release.

Hell even if you look in the HL1 code you can still see fragments of the old Quake 1 code.

erm actually half-life is based off Quake1 and plus valve confirmed it themselves

Collective.valve-erc.com

Also if you look deep in the code, you'll see TE_EXPLOSION, TE_TAREXPLOSION, TE_LAVASPLASH still in there. Quake2 didn't have any of these, so it's clear that it's Q1 based.

Your wrong. If anyone has everyread the history of HL 1, you would know that it used the quake 1 engine.

Anyways, this game is the best and will always be my favorite game(other than HL2).

Run. Think. Shoot. Live.In Half-Life, players assume the role of the protagonist, Dr. Gordon Freeman, a recent MIT graduate in theoretical physics, and also a recent employee at Black Mesa. After an experiment that goes horribly awry when an unexpected Resonance Cascade (an apparently completely fictitious occurrence) rips dimensional seams that devastate the facility, Gordon must fight to escape the now alien-infested facility as creatures from another world — known as Xen — subsequently enter…
