…Mostly old yet relevant info here…
This is a general purpose build/space war/rp… whatever map, it’s my first map for Gmod. Within are two ‘very’ large space stations, one red, one blue… there are 2 platforms and 2 mini bases in space for general mucking about.
This map started when I loaded up a copy of SB_Abyss and thought to myself how much fun it would be if there were platforms out there to play on. These stations(as large and complex as they are now) started as roughly pentagon shaped platforms in the midst of an empty void.
Each station is defined as a very large planet, thus atmosphere and gravity will extend a fair bit into space. If you want happy fun CDS death just fly a little farther out.
Things I am already aware of,
There is a lighting/texture problem on the floor of lvl 1(blue base only), it’s become part of the station for now, I don’t really care anymore(I can’t fix this easily)
The sky-box could use a sprucing up(That will be the final release, who knows when…when I get around to it. This is the ‘unofficial’ final release
Lifts can be stopped between levels(easy to fix, just try sending it either up or down until it starts moving again)
Things you should be aware of,
All lift switches have a built in 2 second delay(so you can get on or off the lift before it moves)
The space doors are incredibly fun and quite dangerous.
Turning lights on and off like you’re in a disco can make people crazy
Common responses to this map from people who have joined my server.
-This is Epic
-This is the best spacebuild map ever.
-I have seen a lot of amazing things in my life, but this takes the cake.
I will be running this on my server “Wolf’s SB2” or “Wolf’s Buildit” when I feel like it.
Anyone that wants to take this map and run it on their server is welcome to, and I suggest using this version as there will not be any remarkable updates in the near future, I am taking a break!
