  • Starting spawn locations: ns2_eclipse

    In an effort to try and make this map less hated... would it be too much of a burden to make it so the Marines cannot start at Marine Start? I don't really care if the teams start beside each other...

    The main concern I'm trying to address (without having to actually edit the map) is the distance from Marine Start to the first nodes they get. It's been the subject of much... discomfort in many of the eclipse games I've played.

    So... maybe we can try to force the spawns to random between the 3 hives on the southern side of the map, and call MS the extra hive?

          Get at least 7 folks (you've already got two -- you and Beige) to post here saying they're game, and we'll try it one night.

Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

              3 of us. Bump.

              Please voice your opinion on changing spawn points for ns2_eclipse. It is very likely the map will remain the same at this point if we do not change either the spawn points or the resource availability to Marines. I need to know which you guys want done so maybe we can enjoy this map rather than loathe it.

                In NS1 marines had an RT in T-junction right before keyhole (back when they weren't separate areas connected by a long hallway). In even earlier versions they had an RT in the little alcove before the ramp that led to T-junction. Would be interesting to see the keyhole RT move to the old NS1 position.

                I'm up for making marine start the alien spawn, and comp core a marine spawn as a test. That is, in the rare instance the map is voted for :P

                    I personally would not try to change start locations so drastically.
                    Maps generally have a flow to them, and changing where teams spawn to a location where they were not supposed to spawn can make things quite a bit worse.

                    If marines have so much trouble getting RT's from Marine Start, how bad would it be for aliens who have to manage a cyst chain through those very same corridors that have no alternate paths?
