    Good GOD, Sledge!! You should put warnings in the briefing that say "Warning: Playing this mission may cause sudden heart attack syndrome in the player!!

    I nearly knocked my chair over and spilled my coffee when I got to that scene in the first screenshot in your post above. I haven't been so rattled since Bonehoard.

    I hope the rest of it's this great, as I'm only 9 minutes into the game. I can't comment on the gameplay and such right now, but the architecture I've seen is outstanding and the atmosphere gets 17 thumbs up!!

    Jeeeeezus, man, give us a warning or something next time.

    Now where'd I put my heart medicine......?

    Oh baybee! Now that's hype right there.
    I can see this thread coming up right after the "digital sound! Stadium seating! The future of entertainment!" ads at the cinema. Ofortuna is playing and James Earl Jones is reading out the number of new textures and things as they flash on the screen in big letters.

    hehehe
    (I'm sure it's marvellous. I just have to go chuckle some more at the advertising)

    I was lucky enough to play a beta version of it and IT SCARED MY PANTS OFF.

    Ladies and gentletaffers, I highly recommend wearing a skirt or kilt or something so this doesn't happen to you.

    Creepy as hell, lots of great detail and thought put into it. I think you should go into business doing this, Sledge.

    Unfortunately I found out that I won't be able to play it. My computer (Pentium 450) simply cant handle the size, so I get about 3 frames per second =\

    That's odd... I've had people of all ranges of hardware play it and haven't reported any general fps problems. What kind of graphics card do you have? It's big, but not as big as Ambush or Life of the Party. It should run the same as any T2 OM... and probably a bit faster than parts of Soulforge and Trail of Blood.

    The framerate is really bad for me too....I have a Celeron 400 with a Viper II (TNT) and the only map that slows down of the OMs for me is Shipping when there's a big open space (but it's tolerable). Man, I really wanted to play this too...

    The file is not apparently at the tripod page - when you click on the link it says "page not found". Just fyi....

    Hmm... there's a problem with the link from tripod so I switched over to The Underground (hope that's cool Despot!). The link to download should now work.

    About the fps: I've never had a problem or had one reported before now. I've gone in game with show_stats and fps is comparable to any of the OMs. The only thing that I could think of would be the huge overall cell count the mission has (about 26,000 pre-optimize) due to the largest size and irregular brush structure. But that's about the same overall cell count as Calendra's Cistern. I'll see what I can come up with.

    Ah... yeah, there is no fps problem with any of the individual areas, but I think the overall size and amount of S&R in there is driving general fps down just a bit when the entire level is optimized. I've been deliberating over this... so tell ya what: For now I'll say the mission is recommended for upper end computers.

    There is a definite "halfway point," so what I could do is divide the mission in 2. That would definitely solve the fps problems for any lower-end computer users. I'll get to work on that asap.

    Ok, little early report (since everyone else is doing it)
    I have a P2 450, 256 Mb of RAM, a tnt1 16 meg AGP
    First I say; looks good! (so far)
    second; it is slow, and I agree, looking the general amount of stuff on screen I'd say its not the poly count (or whatever) How slow? Well its just got a hint of weight to it, if you know what I mean. At a guess I'd say hovering around and below the 20fps mark. Not a problem so far, but I don't do a lot of running or fighting if I can help it.
    Lastly; that sword is annoying. If I pull it out and put it away the light goes out alright, but if I cycle from the sword to another weapon a patch of light is left behind where I was standing. I cycle all the time, so that's rrreally painful.

    Other than that I have nothing to share of any consequence.
    Cheers.

    -edit- Well, good news. The framerate thing stopped after a while. Seems pretty much normal now (except where there's trees, but that's typical too). Must have been a caching thing.

    Wow, man looks awesome sir....but, unfortunately for me it won't run on my system either. I'll have to check it out when I upgrade next month I guess. It might be all the AI's and all the spinning stuff that causes us on the low end not to be able to play it. Although, Soulforge (which I think is the toughest level on ram and cpu IMO..) actually runs a lil smoother than this, but when I loaded it up in Dromed and saw it was like 22 megs - I said "whoa, this is a big mother!"

    For those above the low end (I'm at 233 mmx2 w/128 sdram and ATI video card w/8 megs and a Voodoo2 w/12 megs) this looks like an incredible mission and by what I saw in Dromed - this is some great level building!

    Congrats on the level and I look forward to hearing everyone's comments on the level.....
