    Would you guys like to playtest a new map?

    I was browsing around the constallation forum when i saw someone that wanted feedback for a new map he was making, after playing it for a quick overview, i saw it to be a very well thought out map, and it looks VERY fun to play....

    Here is a copy of the original post in the constallation forum:

    howdy every one.

    with our little corner of the forums so quiet i was hoping to get some one to take a quick run through of my current ns_map ns_richmond.

    (please not this version IS NOT PUBLIC so dont do any thing stupid)

    i will be spending the weekend working on atmosphere , sounds particelsystems and the like. what i need you guys to do is to go through the map and tell em what you think of it if some of the changes i have made since the last open alpha have been crap. etc.

    i spend far too much of my life with my nose burried in this map. therefore i have a complete ignorance of how it actually works. how it will play. what people think of it.

    Screshots @ confusionville.net/test.html (the top button is szoom and the two side green biuttons switch thoguht the pictures the red button geos to the main page which is currently broken)


    if that excites you or you just want to help me out the map is availibe at

    ***************LINK REMOVED***********************

    ( you'll need winrar)

    http://maps.confusionville.net/ns_r9dl.jpg is the current lay out if you want to look at it.

    edit and spell check to come later

    The map is NOT open for the public, so i can not distribute it here, which is why the link was removed.

    I was wondering if Tacticalgamer does do these playtesting type things, and more specifically, if the tacticalgamer community would like to playtest this map, here is a post of the map overview:




    The author has expressed that he would like the map playtested on possibly two servers, so i hope we can get this together =)

    Edit: Be forwarned, the map is in ALPHA testing and therefore is not textured correcly, It is textured enough to not have any default pink and black textures, and it is playable.

    Re: Would you guys like to playtest a new map?

    The room above the left hive is un-needed and won't be used in 99.9% of games, the siege room above the right hive I fear is far too large for the aliens to even have a chance of defending against a siege. The bottom hive doesn't appear to have a very friendly resource nozzle, and the large room above the bottom hive also concerned me as far as it not being very alien friendly

    Just some pre-liminary judgement....aside from that, I'd say it looks pretty solid...the marine start area might need some opening up, but I couldn't tell for sure without playing it. *shrug*

    EDIT: I believe the room above the right top hive has some sort of vent structure that may aid in the defense of a siege, but its not overly distinguished. The distance between the left and bottom hive is also somewhat disturbing...not so much in itself, as in the fact that relocating to that large, otherwise pointless room, southwest of the central node, would significantly split alien gameplay...particularly with the not-so-friendly startng node from the bottom hive.

    I'd like to have it on the server, but not in rotation. If we switched to it via votemap it would be less likely to clear out the server.

    He updated the post on the constallation forum to include a minimap of his latest changes in the map, though i have never played this "new" map...

    For such a large map, 8 res nodes arent enough IMHO

    In general, we could use some custom maps (what happened to ns_marinerb6?). What's the power switch do?

    Only problems I really see on the redesign is the top hive may be a node short, same with the marine spawn area.

    Re: Would you guys like to playtest a new map?

    I'll set the number of requests required for this map to be installed on the server to eight (8). I wasn't impressed with how quickly people turned their backs on the last custom map we introduced (mentioned above), and I hope people give this map more time before deciding it "sucks."

    I'll count myself as one of the eight. If seven others ask for the map, I'll happily go to the trouble of putting it on the server.

    You had to officially state your vote, even though you started the thread.
