With its narrow corridors mixed and a dark alien-inspired atmosphere, Spaceport Perdition will challenge your maze-navigating skills while blasting grappling zeds around every corner. A very challenging map with many chokepoints and a plethora of weldable doors to better control the onslaught. #grindhouse
Version 1a Hotfix (February 24, 2016)
- Fixed two critical path errors that caused some zeds to get stuck in certain doorways (Thanks to NightAngel and co. for reporting!)
I wanted to work more on this map but time for the contest deadline is running out, so reluctantly I have had to wrap it up as it is. Ideally I wanted to add a few extra areas, a heap of additional decorations and do a lot more optimizations both to fps and splattermaps. I would also have liked to better balance the difficulty, as since the current version is very hard according to my solo mode testing. If there's any popularity around the map I might go back and do these things at a later point after the contest has ended.
It has a few free custom textures grabbed from www.textures.com and www.freeimages.com, but is otherwise constructed using the resources from TWI's official maps. Gameplay wise it is very straight-forward with no special features besides a couple of timed security doors that open (another feature I wanted to work more on if time had allowed it)
The whole map also has destructible lights and non-destructible ambient lights. This means after a while most lights will be smashed (especially by sirens), significantly darkening the map, but most areas still remain dimly lit so as not to blanket the whole spaceport in total blackness.
