D1 and D2 Anarchy: Crionics
« on: April 23, 2013, 08:19:54 PM »
One more map I had in mind for a while.  Just like Crossfire Canyon, there's two versions of it, but I tried to rope myself in when building this level to keep it from being too oddball like some of my previous offerings. :P It's a largely techbase level with some views out into grated-off icy scenery for ambiance, and while it has just as much added detail as my previous maps, it should be a little more "traditional" in terms of playstyle.  The main attraction is most likely going to be the dogfighting room with the grated pillars (especially with the weapons loadout of the D2 version), but I made sure everything else, even the tunnels, would be good-looking as well as nicely flowing.

Special thanks goes to Blarget for most of the custom textures (I only take credit for creating a couple new ones using the others as a template).  I think the less unconventional weapons loadout should make the D2 version more comfortable as well, so definitely give it a shot as it's less built around the super weapons than my previous offerings. ;) I've tested it in a game with both new and veteran Rangers and I think it was a hit, so feel free to try both versions.

Weapons loadout for the Descent 1 version:
-5 Quad Laser upgrades
-10 Laser level upgrades
-4 Vulcan Cannons
-4 Spreadfire Cannons
-5 Plasma Cannons
-2 Fusion Cannons
-4 Concussion Missiles

-12 Proximity Mines
-5 Smart Missiles
-15,000 Vulcan Ammo rounds

Weapons loadout for the Descent 2 version:
-8 Afterburners
-6 Quad Laser upgrades
-6 Super Laser upgrades
-5 Vulcan Cannons
-4 Gauss Cannons
-5 Spreadfire Cannons
-6 Plasma Cannons
-5 Fusion Cannons
-2 Omega Cannons
-14 Flash Missiles
-12 Homing Missiles
-8 Proximity Mines
-6 Mercury Missiles
-5 Smart Missiles
-12,500 Vulcan Ammo rounds

Bumping this thread to let anyone who's interested know that I've updated the D2 version. I've gotten much more into D2 multiplayer over the last several months, which encouraged me to go back and include support for Capture the Flag and Hoard, as well as place weapons according to the way Parallax meant for them to be balanced. The re-balancing HAM idea didn't go over very well anyway, so I took it out and slightly changed the weapons loadout to better accommodate the default weapon stats. See the original post for the updated weapons loadout, and re-download the level from the same link.

I will probably be doing the same for two of my other early D2 levels fairly soon if I can get help with testing them. They were intended to make more use of the high-power weapons like the Helix and Phoenix (and one was even a Shaker map), so help outside the Rangers might not be a bad idea.
