Yer it does seem easy, you've massively buffed up the defenses, I didn't have to do anything for the first couple missions as the zombies hadn't even breached the perimeter at that point.

I think it would be a tad insulting to call it the next version X but I do feel you did lean that way with a lot of the changes. Such as all the holes in the wall so people don't have to walk the long way to heal, and the buffed defenses.
However, I did very much like how you fixed the annoying heal position and how you would accidently walk on things trying to go to the armoury, I've copied those fixes to my version.

My version is basically the original Panzer version with the tiniest of modifications. I've kept it very minimalistic I have basically tried to just fix glitches and added quests (I can't remember if I actually added quests or just fixed broken ones). Then I added basically a second ending, a good and bad ending. Bad is you fly away and leave Raccoon City to the nuclear blast, good is you defuse the bomb.

I wish you didn't protect it, I'm having a tough time reading the side quests you added without any comments.
It looks like your side quests were getting civilians out of the sewers and a crashed helicopter evac, which is cool.

I checked the triggers of mine, here is what I had:
Quote
RPD OFFICER
Cover me while I open this gate!
I've opened the gate to the sewers!
Quote
<04>RPD Commando:
<07>Thank you for rescuing me, but I
<07>fear that your too late, these wounds
<07>are fatal. Here, take these, they're
<07>the last Magnum Sniper rounds I have.
This is the sewer mission which unlocks the AWS inside the armoury. You need to get the SCV from the Garbage Truck mission to be able to open the sewer gate. The commando's dialogue and AWS unlock was Panzer's, but I did the sewer gate dialogue. As far as I could tell there was no way to enter the sewers.

Quote
<04>RPD Captain:
<07>My men at the Communications Network
<07>say that there's a large Warehouse up near
<07>Bob's Guns. Assemble a team and see if
<07>anything can be salavaged. Good luck.

Quote
<03>MISSION OBJECTIVES:
<07>-Assemble a team to the Warehouse.
<07>-Bring any supplies back to the RPD.
<07>-Get there within five minutes.

Quote
<04>RPD Officer:
<07>Excellent! This warehouse obviously belonged
<07>to Bob's Guns, there's food, ammunition, and
<07>fuel. Ok get everything onto this APC now!
Quote
<04>RPD Captain:
<07>Excellent work men! We finally have enough fuel
<07>to get some Squad Cars and Motorcycles running.
<07>These ammunition and food supplies don't hurt either.


<06>MISSION FAILED:
<07>The APC is torn apart by zombies and
<07>the fuel tanks explode, the flames could
<07>be seen from the RPD.
This happens late in the game, it unlocks the final supply depot and allows you to build vehicles. I'm fairly sure this was done by Panzer, but it was just bugged and unable to be started - I just restored functionality.

Quote
<04>RPD Captain:
<07>My men at the Communication Network report
<07>that several U.B.C.S. members have volunteered
<07>to supply us with several advanced rifles, get over
<07>there and assess the situation. Be careful.

<03>MISSION OBJECTIVES:
<07>-Take a squad to the Comm Network.
<07>-Assign the volunteers to a squad.
<07>-Eliminate all monsters encountered.

Quote
<04>U.B.C.S. Member
<07>Greetings officers, I have stored some
<07>rifles north-west of here. Follow me and
<07>I'll lead you to them.


<04>U.B.C.S. Member
<07>Allow me to open the door. There, take
<07>what you need. Don't worry about me, I'll
<07>wait here for my squad. Good luck officers.
This unlocked the M-21, but not in the armoury - you had to walk over to this spot at the Communication's Centre and your unit would 'equip' the M-21, similar to how it worked in Bob's Guns with the marine reward there for saving him.
I triggered and dialogued this quest from scratch, I believe. It was a reward for keeping the Communication's Centre alive, it happens very late game. A heli crash rescue quest sounds much cooler though!


Quote
<04>RPD Captain:
<07>Shit! The UBCS is going to destroy the
<07>city! Everyone into the helicopter, now!


<04>RPD Sergeant:
<07>Sir we need to get down there
<07>and defuse that bomb, the fate
<07>of Raccoon City depends on it!


<04>RPD Sergeant:
<07>Sir, what are your orders?

Quote
<07>The helicopter flies off into the horizon as
<07>Raccoon City goes up in flames, the zombies
<07>are dead, but at what price?


<03><13>Made by Panzer_Kavalier
Quote
<07>The bomb has been defused, and
<07>the city remains intact, congratulations
<07>for successfully defending Raccoon City!


<03><13>Made by Panzer_Kavalier
This was the bonus ending I added in after the countdown timer expired. Basically the players had two choices, take the helicopter at the RPD and fly away (the easy ending, but also the 'bad' ending), or fight their way west, kill zombies and UBCS soldiers and defuse the bomb (much harder, especially if you are already barely clinging on at this point, but the 'good' ending.)

Hmm well that was a neat trip down memory lane. Can't wait to play this tomorrow at the LAN though.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. A group of my friends have been getting together lately and hammering out all the old LAN party classics, so I've taken the time to compile a list of our favorites and present them to you. Some amazing times have been had, let me tell you.

If you can think of some glaringly obvious omission, please, let me know so I can add it to my list. Note that most of my friends are casual Starcraft players (read: very complicated maps are more trouble than they're worth), so know I've tried to keep that in mind.

Hmm..

JamaL,

When do you plan on having this event? I am in the works of creating a Golem style map with specials and a few other things. I could possibly finish it this weekend if I had the motivation to do so.

Also,

If you are interested in Bounds I could provide you with my Flash Bound 2 map I created awhile back. Both maps are 4 player games, the bound is a 2v2 race where the golem map is 1v1v1v1 or allied if you chose to do so.

Let me know!

If they like casual UMS, I would suggest Mario Kart. Definitely play a couple rounds of Blood Pressure Marathon, my friends seemed to love that map.



Win by luck, lose by skill.

Yeah, love Mario Kart! Never played BPM, though, I'll give it a try.

Messaged you. Maybe we should get a map night going, eh?

If they liked Infinite Shift, my Jog maps are casual games of the same genre. Also, 6-Way Sunken Defense is a staple. Hide and Seek maps may also be worth at least a half hour of fun.

We'll be playing again in a couple of days -- I'll let you know how your Jog maps go over.

I have no idea what to put here... So I guess I'll just put this here.

You can always try my new map. Just got new quests and everything into it.
Plus, I need people to test the multiplayer out on it... It sucks when you don't have internet to do stuff.
It is a zombie map. It has a lot of features. Every game will be different... Since 95% of everything is randomized. (Excluding terrain and weapons)
