A Map A Day Campaign. - Irritant - 04-27-2017

Starting Monday, I will begin what is going to be called "A Map A Day". Each day, I will start a thread for each map in the official map list that will serve as a sounding board for the community to talk about what they like or don't like about the map. The goal is that the next day those suggestions will be taken under consideration as a spend a day on each map polishing up and finalizing all issues with it. There are some rules:

1. Known issues will be posted in the initial thread - please do not post about known issues in this list, unless it is a suggestion on how it should be resolved(in other words, don't re-report a known issue).

2. Keep suggestions to more specific items that cause problems. We won't be doing any major re-designs here - the time for that has long passed.

3. The thread will be locked at the end of the following day when the map updates are completed and reviewed.

4. Focus on game play, but if there are aesthetic bugs, please report them. The main objective is to make the maps as fluid and un-obtrusive as possible, while still retaining a degree of detail. Also, remember some detail also provides opportunities for trickjumping, ambushes, and strategic maneuvers.

As always, thank you for any input, suggestions, and bug reports. The goal is to make Alien Arena THE most polished, fun, and furious Arena FPS game in existence. As I've mentioned to the developers, it's also a very good idea to look at the games we will be currently competing with on Steam, such as of course, the game that is in position to lead a revival of the Genre - Quake Champions.

I like the idea Smile
It would be great to have a server that runs with plain DM and only this map in the maplist. Because it makes a huge difference between playing multiplayer on it or just walking around.

I'm looking forward ginving some input

I want to thank everyone who contributed to the Level A Day campaign, especially one person in particular - Freaky. Yours(and everyone's) contributions were greatly appreciated and I could not have accomplished half of what I did without this kind of feeback and input. It won't be forgotten.

As for Freaky, given your keen eye, and dedication, I will be PM'ing you some information about further testing un-public content, if you so desire.
