    starting spawn locations: ns2_refinery

    Please read the "mod: starting spawn locations" thread's opening post before posting in this thread.

    I've not (yet?) modified starting spawn locations on ns2_refinery.

    Build 261's stock ns2_refinery offers the following possible starting spawn location pairings (Marine, Alien):

    Containment, Smelting
    Containment, Flow Control
    Turbine, Flow Control
    Flow Control, Containment
    Flow Control, Turbine
    Smelting, Containment

    Do we want to leave it alone?

    Do we want to let anyone spawn in Pipeworks?

    Does anyone have other ideas?

    I think a Pipe - Smelting start would be fun for either faction as a start.

    Pipe - Smelting might be interesting, but we'd want to keep an eye out for how it does work out. Otherwise, it's fine, since there aren't really any close spawns.

    Re: starting spawn locations: ns2_refinery

    Refinery's spawns don't really feel all that bad in my mind, compared to other maps, since close spawns don't exist.
    Pipe-Smelting would be interesting, although I'm unsure of the balance.
    True, it won't be a close spawn, but from Pipe, the Aliens could fortify the entire left side of the map and control 3 TP's pretty quickly, I think. I'd be up for giving it a shot, though.

    Re: starting spawn locations: ns2_refinery

    I've added this starting spawn to ns2_refinery in addition to its stock offering (Marines, Aliens):

    Pipeworks, Smelting

    Please provide feedback.

    Re: starting spawn locations: ns2_refinery

    Might have just been the particular game we had earlier, but marine/pipe, alien/smelting seemed a bit too marine sided. It's fairly trivial to keep aliens from keeping flow control, and a phase gate to chasm made for a quick arc of smelting.

    Re: starting spawn locations: ns2_refinery

    I've returned ns2_refinery to stock start spawns for Build 262. I'm happy to add Pipeworks/Smelting back, if there's interest.
