(Download v1.5 ~ 4/2/11) (It is also on the official map testing server)

So, I was (pleasantly) surprised that stuff actually happened with maps. Go figure.

Here is a playable map that I've been working on over the past few days (Edit:... and then improving over a couple of weeks). It is neither hills nor asteroids. Sorry.

XX2 helped me work out with (Edit: lots and lots of) flaws.

Inspired by this.

Visual overview + layout (Current version v1.5 4/2/2011):





- 4000x1700
- para_false BG = mid gray (RGB 128/128/128)
- the trees and rock formations are collidable. Foreground grass and the dangling roots are not collidable.
- 3x powerups, all Missile/Shield/Wall/Health on 15 secs
- Team bombs
- Some foreground fog effects spread around the map.
- Most recent edit: All background images compressed into one image on one parralax. This significantly reduced the filesize of the map and seems to have resolved performance issues.


-------

This map is available by voting for it on the "official map test server."

...

That is all.

I do not think any copyrights exist for silhouette-style drawings, the word 'sanctum', or trees -- so I hope not.

afaik, the only copyright Meridian4 has is to the name 'Obulis', and I don't see this map as infringing upon that in some way.

I did not directly copy-paste artwork from their game, but took it as a visual cue, though tbh similar kinds of artwork can be seen in many games (like here)

All the images I made myself.

those front turrets right in front of the base seem rather silly

the map looks great and the layout otherwise fine though, glad to see you're getting back into making maps.
