Major Game Overhaul Patch

Post by Artouris » 01 Apr 2017, 02:24

In the interest of appealing to a newer audience and branch out the game...

We're converting the LV-624 map and Sulaco to a new level. Inspired heavily by the movie Waterworld, we've decided to take the sea by the horn of the narwhal. We've greatly expanded upon the gameplay in this iteration of CM. By taking to the seas, we've decided to take the field where no one has gone before. Especially not to mention to ward off the various servers attempting to take our space ship as a main base.

LV-624 is now a floating ocean colony, full of the best mapping choices ever done.

The Sulaco has been replaced with a wooden recreation of the USS Iowa, it is a formidable opponent.

However one must now remember that the sea is a harsh mistress... (also no one knows how to swim).

I completely forgot April fools existed. Crap. Gotta go totally not make my friends' lives miserable.

PS: Art forgot to mention that the Marines get tiny wooden paddleboats, and the Xenos get military resin warships.

I really like the map, especially the M56D emplacement. I would really like it if the M56D was added to LV and Ice aswell as that would allow marines to stand a better chance at defending the FOB and allow for some interesting FOB builds.

this map is really good, wouldn't mind it played every once in a while. Not in normal rotation cuz it's a bit memey, but just every now and then like HG

Lots of gimmicks I don't like (those fucking teleporters...) and lots of things I like (those fucking laptops)
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

I honestly love the maps, I really hope that these maps will be kept and slowly worked on so they're not buggy and placed into an occasional rotation like HG and WO. I love it.

New bridge looks absolutely fantastic, though. Great for last stands, too.
