It looked like at times the player was leaning to the side to peek around the tree. I know that was in the game F.E.A.R.. Was that in vanilla CoP too? If so I highly underutilized it.

Red power already has gemstones + tools including sapphires.
I suppose if you don't want red power and want the tools this is ok.

In redpower the sapphire tool is almost as fast as diamond with half durability.

This is similar to the last spawn I found, back when it was introduced.
Also this surface opening looked like a lucky accident, there was an opening which led to a tiny cave if it could count as one.

I love the concept it works really well for the entrenchment expansion.

I made my own interpretation of this map with no pirates and 4 players with their territory all meeting in a 3X3 block of asteroid belts and the sun.

Maps like these also let the Vasari super weapon actually be useful to me. What happens is the enemy fortifies the 'bottleneck' in the map and the Vasari can bypass it with the super weapons ability to make phase stabilizers between unconnected planets.

That was pretty good. One of the hardest limitations of Gmod is how everyone is either a mannequin, human, or moving grossly unnaturally(and simplistically) Another thing gmod lacks is a good way to slowly pan the camera without it looking like you're using a controller or holding the A/D key. You worked around those very well.

One thing I would like to see change is how close you have to get to where buildings would block your view before they go transparent or cut off upper levels. I always get squeamish when I approach those edges unsure if I'm running blindly at a zombie.
