Post news Report RSS M.A.V. Alpha 0.3.5 Release

Build 0.3.5 bring with it two new arena game levels, one set high atop a mountain pass, and the other set deep in a desert in the middle of a sand storm. Both new levels provide a different set of challenges to the player.

Out with the old, In with the New

New levels that is!

So there are now two, brand new, levels for you to test your combat prowess in. Each level presents a unique set of challenges you will have to overcome to pilot your M.A.V. effectively.

Mountain Pass :

The Mountain pass is made of many sharp cliffs and deep valleys. The valleys provide excellent concealment as you make your way around the level, but be careful you are not walking into an ambush. If you prefer to engage targets from a distance, you will want to find your way up to the top of one of the peaks. These provide a great view and can allow you to get an angle to fire into the valleys below.

Desert :

Desert Map
Wide open areas make this level a snipers dream. Make sure to pay attention to the sandstorms though, as a passing storm can reduce the visibility and allow your target to escape. Be wary of other snipers as well. Try and take out thier offensive power and move in for an easy kill.


You can grab the latest version of the Alpha from your user page and begin playing the new maps by starting an arena game. The map selection is randomized right now.

I have also begun work on version 0.3.6 which will begin focusing on the campaign game mode and setup the framework for persistent play sessions. This will include a world map, an inventory system, and the beginnings of the capturing and defending of territories.

A bit of cell Shading? Hmm not to bad ^^ looks nice man. btw i see you got bipeds going. any chance M.A.V. will/is modifiable? to the extent of modding it to have bipeds that can melee? small little soldiers running around to only get stepped on? ^^ i have plenty of custom made mech/weps/vehicles/ warships ect i have made over the years i can use and will give to you for free and i can make new customs just for M.A.V. if you like? other then that, PLZ keep up the great work.

Hey, that sounds awesome. Actually on of the big items people have been requesting is Mod support, so I have been planning for a way to allow that.

It's complicated, but I definitely want to support custom parts and maybe maps.

I am HEAVILY inspired by chromehounds. It will not be exactly the same, but it will undoubtedly be similar.
