Deus Volt! 1.0

Synchronicity13 on Dec 30th 2022

Daylight

A solo/coop campaign for Infinity. Join UESC forces in their first major offensive against the Pfhor, and explore the mysteries of the Vylae homeworld.

Requires the Previous AI Plugin until I figure out how to embed MML.

Notes for version 1.0:

Happy New Year! Got back into mapping after a ~12 year hiatus and figured I should give this an update. Made a number of sweeping changes, including:

  • Reworked geometry. Refined or scrapped and replaced frustrating portions of specific levels (e.g., beginning of first level). Modified shield charger/pattern buffer placement to be challenging without being frustrating.
  • Reworked enemy placement. Drastically reduced number of teleport ambushes and mobs in tight spaces. Much more freedom to maneuver in firefights.
  • Differential shading. Along with tweaks to texturing, should make it much easier to "read" the geometry of the levels.
  • Updated terminals. Fixed a number of typos in terminal text, and made mission objectives clearer.
  • Revised level names/order. Changed names I thought sounded cool in 2008 to names I think sound cool in 2022. Also, switched around the order of later levels.

I'm always looking to hone my craft as a mapper -- reviews, suggestions, &c are greatly appreciated. Hearty thanks to $lave for providing thorough and thoughtful feedback on v0.1!

Amazing Work! Marathon C: Version 7

Synchronicity13 on Dec 2nd 2008, Version Number 7

There's some excellent mapmaking going on here... Good differential shading, clever secrets, and some ingenious use of 5D space. I especially liked the addition of small details that really complete the level, like being able to flood the starting area in "Harpooning." The story's intriguing... can't wait to see more!
