Eternal Silence team announce a new map and show off some very impressive community videos.

Posted by MadMechwarrior on Jan 13th, 2009

Hello All,

Some more news for you while we continue to wait for Valve to release the mod. We suspect some delays over another mod team is holding this batch of mods back (but we can't be sure). Regardless, we are pressing on. Some of you may remember a map for Eternal Silence 2.3 which never made it back in 3.0 called es_asteroid. Our mapper Elusive has taken up the task of retooling the map into something fun for everyone and has come up with ctf_asteroid (and soon, de_asteroid). We played this map last weekend and the gameplay was great fun. The flag-asteroids even have secret back entrances which provides an awesome death-from-above experience. Here are a few screenshots of the map.


More in the Gallery. This map is planned to be released in the next patch (3.3), but may get thrown into 3.2 depending on delays (don't you love Valve Time).

I'd also like to give a shout out to the [SKULL] guys, specifically [SKULL]MattMan, [SKULL]mR.Waffle and [SKULL]Evuras who put together some excellent tutorial videos (including How Not to Suck 101 Tongue). You can view all of them in this thread. I highly recommend that new players take a look, even I learned a few moves.

The most impressive of the videos is the advanced combat. [SKULL]mR.Waffle takes us through a dogfight in which he scores 23 (!!) kills in a single life. Here it is, embedded for convenience (visit YouTube for the high quality version).


We're continuing to put pressure on Valve, we'll let you know as soon as we have any news. If you haven't already, please vote for us as Mod of the Year, we won't disappoint.


Dan
