X-Ray releases a new community map for Eternal Silence: vertigo

Posted by MadMechwarrior on Jul 10th, 2008

Some good news for everyone, we have a new community map made by our very own X-Ray. I'm eager to see some servers running this map! From the description:

X-Ray wrote:Features

Big things! An 80km asteroid sets the backdrop for the map.
Dizziness! Struggle to determine which way is down!
Cover in space! Fly through a trench inspired by a quaint, unheard-of Sci-Fi movie from the 70s.
Attack! Or defend! One team starts off with an offensive advantage. Then they get to switch, if the defenders last that long.
Daring! Brave the deadly radiation that surrounds the asteroid. But don't get too close!
New type of corvette! A shield corvette protects the NGM fleet. Shoot it down (or protect it) at all costs!
Destruction! Feel it on the inside as the destroyer gets battered by railgun fire.
Windows Check on your shield corvette from inside your ship!

A readme is included in the ZIP. I've put this on ModDB and it's pending administrative review. Until then, please test it for me! Report any issues, gameplay or otherwise, here, and I'll do my best to address them.

So go ahead and enjoy the fruits of X-Ray's labour. Give him some feedback in our forums. The team is still working on the next release, 3.2, which should bring with it a bunch of new game modes and maps. More news on this soon!

this map is simply beautiful. Doesn't even look like it was built on the source engine.

Not having a go at you buddy, but it does frustrate me when people say "doesn't look like it was made on the Source engine", as if the Source Engine is some piece of second rate junk. Maps like this and mods like Eternal Silence, show off exactly what the Source engine is capable of, and how versatile it is in comparison with other engines. Great map by the way!

I was having a look at this map yesterday, fabulous! Although there were some capture points on the big NGM ship that was confusing, like you can't take the hanger. There's also a second floor on that ship that can't be accessed (or I missed the ladder~).

I'd give it an 8.5/10 though! Love the hangers on the 'roid!
