  • ns_shiva

    moultano has released a public beta of ns_shiva on the NS forums. I haven't played it yet, but it's a great looking map and I've heard a lot of good things about it. Any possibility of trying it out on the server?

    Re: ns_shiva

    I did a quick run through of this map. It has a lot of nice looking parts, its sort of ns_mineshaft meets the usual decorative custom maps. There's also some really interesting things, for example at double nodes, one of the rt's is in a weldable closet.

    but there's a couple things I just can't get my head around.
    1.) there are two pits that do about 65 fall damage. That's it. they are very small holes and not obviously pits at first inspection. I have no idea why they are there.

    2.) There's this hive. Well, let me show it to you:

    Yes, that is the only marine entrance to the hive (the other two pathways you see are sort of elevated doors that are too high to reach).
    Yes, that is an rt under the water.
    No, I do not see any weldables nearby.

    Anyway, it seems very... different. Also looks pretty expensive for those of us who do not have 256mb Radeon 9800 Pros. Not saying we shouldn't try it, just giving a fair warning :)

      I have installed this map on the server.

          We checked that map out. There is a weldable in the middle-bottom of the map not attached to an RT (and half the map away from the hive) that when welded drains the water in that hive. Otherwise it is impossible for marines to drop that node (or anything else there, for that matter)

          It is one beautiful map, though.
