Year 2552. The Earth is no longer habitable since year 2401 due to the atmosphere collapse and temperature rise in planet Earth. Human race has been forced to live in the different colonized planets into the Solar System. This was called "The Second Exodus". After the "Enceladus Atmosphere Implementation Program" (EAIP) succeeded in year 2295, Saturn's moon ENCELADUS turned into the most important human colony into the Solar System altogether with Titan's. Even though the extreme cold conditions are still uncontrollable in a 40% of Enceladus, there's liquid water produced during the EAIP in a almost a 35% of its surface, enabling the proper ecosystem for human being subsistence and many other life forms... Due to its perfect gravity conditions (very similar to the Earth's) after the EAIP, ENCELADUS colony became a planet of interest to Aperture Laboratories to develop its more ambitious testing program, The Enceladus Initiative.

while it is still in the mod's style, it's a side map isn't it?

Well, more than a side map... it is an introductory map. It's the beginning... The player will appear in this strange world and then he will be driven to the other looking chambers

Lol the number of the updates scared me at first. Awesome pics though. Can't wait for the demo, that was the first thing i thought when i saw the updates. Btw i think any delay is ok, especially when there is a mapping contest around taking everyone's time. Keep it up. ;)

OK, just in order to clarify everything (I'm not really sure of what have I said here and what at TWP...). If you carefully (re)read the mod's description, "The Second Exodus" will definitely sound familiar to you all :D Well, the mod starts, NOT in the previous shown ambience, the "sandy" and warm looking test chambers, but THERE... in this new looking chambers you're watching, ok?

I sincerely hope that you ike the result!

I took the chance to experiment a little bit more with new textures and a darker look in order to develop for the TWP mapping contest something completely new, but at the same time, something I could use later for the mod. So here it is: "the Second Exodus" is the beginning chapter of the mod. The story starts HERE.

Later today THE MAP WILL BE AVAILABLE HERE SO YOU CAN TEST IT! :D (some changes need to be done, and that's why I haven't uploaded it yet... sry)

AND... what is more: THIS IS NOT THE DEMO I WAS TALKING ABOUT! I'll release another map, a hard one that I'd like to share with TWP and with my trackers here. It will correspond to part of chapter nº 5 of the mod, and yes, it'll be enterely located in the "sandy looking" Enceladus chambers... Maybe I'll finish it by next week (due to the delay the contest caused to me!)

I hope it's a bit clearer now... Do not hesitate to ask whatever doubt though.

For what I saw of this first chapter's new style, I can say you haven't been sleeping on the job, I really like this new atmosphere (particularly this screenshot, it looks like the entrance of a sci-fi structure in a dark swamp Moddb.com ). It opposes well to the warm theme you created first.

Also, if you plan on releasing the map to test, I would suggest you to upload it on Valve's Steamworks, if you want to display it to a larger community (I know some other modders from modDB already did).

Thanks for commenting Pauolo! I'm soooo glad to hear what you told. No, I'm far away from sleping ion the job! (I'm far away from sleeping as well... hahaha). It has been a damn lot of mapping in only 2 weeks.

I'm also so glad to hear that you think the new mood opposes well to the warmer one. I wasn't really easy to develop in the short time the contest allowed us; and I'm happy with ther result too. :D

I'l definitely publish it in the Workshop, and then link it here... or maybe also publish it here (a non-workshop version). Thanks for suggesting!

This reminds me of the movie Oblivion.
