A remote RDZ Industries industro-military research and development facility has gone dark... Its factories are on overdrive, producing AI-controlled drone units that have destroyed everything in the facility. Take control of the brand new, highly experimental All-Purpose Assault Mech as you are sent to investigate the stricken facility -- get in, regain control of the base systems, and find out what the hell happened.

- Fixed subnet hacks crashing on loading ("Undocumented Designs" objective)
- Fixed subnet maze avatar not being immediately reselected on deselection
- Fixed bounds on subnet terminals making them difficult to select

- Guessing the missing digits of a keypad code discovered during a router hack will update the datapad entry for that code
- Computer monitors "switch off" after being read to indicate terminals that have already been viewed once (they can still be read again if desired)
- Added "quick" exits to the two bunker assaults; the Waste bunker allows you to exit near Bunker 07, while the North bunker takes you out in the mines

- Fixed Mausoleum being uncompletable if only one Blue Fusion Reactor spawns
- Fixed some potential bad behaviours and exploits of Marseille
- Fixed G1 assault troops getting clogged up at their exit region?

- Spiderbot Assembler: consume the wreckage of fallen enemies to spread the scourge of the Spiderbot
- Portable Turret: buy these undercarriage sentinels from Factory Control and deploy them to defend a location
- Amberite Shields: when you find the Amberite chunk, you can now choose to make a pair of shields instead of swords
- Spiked Shields: stumble across these weaker shields in the early game to cause melee attackers to damage themselves with every strike

Almost 15 megs, that ain't much but can't be in multiplayer. Stupid Warcraft III limitations. Now I wish I had the game installed again, just to see and play this level!
When I do reinstall it I'll play and review this bad boy!

I just randomly visidet RDZ and here it is O_O!

Now just to find my damn tft, imma find that henrik reference!

Played trough a little bit ( until I needed to drop tha bomb, died a few times). so far so awesome, intro also awesome btw. It feel like a completely different game and not just custom map. The pick ups can be a little hard to notice beneath those wreckages, but that is just a matter of getting used to.

The pickups are a result of my trying to keep everything to scale. I put invisible hit-boxes around the fiddliest ones, but there may still be room for refinement.

Btw noticed that repair drones aren't stackable.

Also after I droped the bomb I didn't have an option to pick up stuff like in the tutorial. EDIT: Nevermind found the part.
