A survival map in an abandoned cargobay - Combine Skill and teamplay to survive

This Holdout map comes with 13 challenging Waves, each with different aliens.

It takes skill and teamplay to survive each wave.
It is also solo playable on easy.

Note: This map will NOT work properly with onslought mode enabled, death during resupply periods will result in dual spawn which crashes the server!
- A follow up on the ticket i send to steam support:
I got reply, where the dude said i should post the bug on the forums but i dont think anything will happen, so i am going to workaround this bug somehow to prevent it from happening.

This is addon version 0.7 Release Candidate 1 - This addon is not finished, there may be a few bugs in the map, but it is playable.

Air units are not yet supported in this addon

I am currently working on version 0.7 there is a lot of stuff i need to do before i can release it, so hang in there - It'll rock when the time comes ;D

I'll post updates on the release here as the work goes on.
Upcoming changes in 0.7:
Lights will be fixed and more added
AI movement will be redone
empty spaces of the map will be used for exciting new stuff.
4th room will have a purpose
wave 11 and beyond will be looked at, as they are now, they are way too hard.
The AI director will be smarter.
Buzzer spawns will be added
alien spawns from floors, Walls, roofs, rails and airducts will be added.
the button in 3rd room that currently only starts a red rotating light will do something cool
more props will be added (maby even customs)
Map will be more FPS Friendly for older PC's
Campaign/Mission pictures and names will be updated to the final ones.

Since i get a lot of request from people who want to play this online, but there are never someone to play with, i have decided to set a dedicated server up for a while to see if people use it.
The server will run the latest version of the map IP will be in the description text when it's done.
The more people who play on that server the more it encourage me to keep updating my map. thanks for all the positive feedback i've gotten so far. - you are the greatest :D

If you want to join the discussion on this map please go to search for "holdout cargobay" i will reply there as soon as i can. ofcourse you can also send me a mail. Address is in the readme file.

I am currently working on version 0.7 RC 2
