Post news RSS A new map series released

Shift-Two doesn’t yet get its remake, but there is something else…

Posted by on

Hello everyone,


While Shift-Two V2 isn’t going to come out any year soon, I tried to make up for all its shortcomings in my latest mapping project (which is also the only other project I finished, apart from Shift-Two).

20220906234346 1

It is a map series for Sven Co-op, which is as you know a free, stand-alone game. It can be played solo, but is better enjoyed with 2 to 4 players. It was intensively play-tested. It is a linear walktrough but there are often multiple ways to approach -or avoid- an obstacle. The first map was made by Neophus, the other two by myself. The series features a story, multiple endings, custom textures and models, open areas, and custom music, among other things.

You can download it here.

The experience I gained with this project in terms of mapping, modelling and texturing makes me think a V2 of Shift-Two would be entirely possible, if people are still interested in it. The avent of new mapping tools, such as JACK, TrenchBroom, the VHLT, MESS and WadMaker, or the Unified SDK make it significantly more attractive. I would of course not resume work on it until I find myself in a stable situation, which could take four or more years… or significantly less.

As usual, I’m very much interested in any feedback you may have about Shift-Two, or anything related.

Believe me, people would be interested in a completed and improved Shift-Two, I'm a perfect example.

As for this mappack, it looks great. I will try it when I have the chance, great job friend.

Looks dope! Shame it's Sven-Coop only as this would have been rad as a Half-Life mod!

Sorry about that! But you can still download and play it in single player in Sven Co-op! :) But yeah it's best played with a few other players.
Sven Co-op offers very nice features I wouldn't have gotten otherwise: large areas with less wpolies, larger maps, larger limits in general, scripting... It would have been much harder to make these maps in a mod.
