Hey this is our second Map we finished togheter.
The Map is inspired by Z-machine and his great map surf_machine.
We know there are a lot of Machine maps out there and most of them are more bad then anything else.
We tryed to make it better. Make the best looking Machine Map with also a good gameplay.
We think we did a great job but at the end it´s up to you to decide if the mission is accomplished.
Well here are some informations about the map.
Random Weapon Spawner
Unique Pre, and secret rooms
Of course a lot of deteils
Some changes to the basic layout most machine maps have.
Sorry for the bad Screenshots, they are taken without antialaising and with middel Picture Quality, so they don´t show the real look of the map.
a small video that shows all secrets of our new map surf_megamachine, not nice but rarely xD
Thank you :D
Thank you again :D
Yes a totally new machine Map would be awesome but i have to admit, we never thought of that :P We wanted to do a machine map with original layout. But your absolutly right and again thank you.
Our main Problem was, that we wanted to keep all the rooms and places of Machine in our Map. They may now look different and have a few more or less features but they are all in our map. Now the Problem is that even more rooms like now make the Map less fun for a crowed of only 3 or 4 ppl playing on a server (what happens often) because it takes forever to find you. Maybe in the next machine Map. ;P
Yeah thats the point i mostly agree with you. I wanted a spacemachine of a destroyed Battel Spaceship and the hangar is spawn, the rail is a broken piece of the shiphull with melted holes in it and so on. But very fast you see that you need someone who makes all the models for you so it looks really good. Short end i found noone :P
Yeah that was because we are stupid Xd
Thanks for your critic
Balance: The map is well setup like the original so it makes both sides fun to play. The map feels balanced and your not always needing to follow the same path.
Design: It's the machine design? Of course it's going to be great ;p. Also, I like how you guys sorta made it your own personal creation unlike others who just retexture and slap their name on it somewhere.
Detail: The detail is pretty good, as much as a surf map can be. I know how hard it is to properly detail a surf map, believe me.
Fun: The map is pretty fun...but it still feels like the original, no matter how I look at the map. I know it's a "remake" and it should resemble the original, however I'm my opinion, all the top notch remakes make you feel like your playing an entirely new map with a taste of the old.
Gameplay: It plays pretty well, just like the old machine, however I was hoping for a little more of an "Update" to the old map. I know you've added secrets and their fine, but a little bit of a pain in the ass to figure out / get to.
Looks: The map looks pretty good, better than the original for sure but still not an entirely new look. It would have probably been cool to try and re-do the theme entirely, great more realistic settings, and give it your own sort of look. However, it doesn't look bad.
Teamplay: I'm not 100% sure why you included this in the rating because most surfers could care less about team play, and I know for the original, people would rather kill you in jail than release you.
