Description

Unique convoy level where the trader is located on a moving train car that is also the only viable source of light on the map. It keeps players moving together as a group and on the move.

I have played this on multiple servers and this is the first I have heard of a major lag/performance issue aside from the rocky area.

Most give positive feedback on the light given off the train. Aside from that everything else will be pitch black :P

Was this on solo? Or did you try joining a server?

Well this is something different. It definitely is pitch black with no flashlight. There is a certain feel to this map which I like, don't know what it is, but it's good :) This could even be another game mode, separate to survival and objective mode. Very creative and unique.

I wouldn't mind seeing another map with this kind of thing going, but in daylight. As an example, the trader could be in an ambulance vehicle/truck going through a city which has been all but wiped out apart from the zeds.

Thanks for the input and feedback!

I planned on releasing a heavy fog/mist version of this for variation and because I am curious to how it feels compared to the train being the only source of light.

Expect more variations of this in the future!
