Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to everyone, and so on
We decided to show a few more screenshots... most of the views can be seen in the latest video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXqiDUPY7eA
), but these particular ones deserve a little more special attention.
A ramified grid of underground tunnels interspersed with industrial structures. Here lies (probably) the first tarydium deposit located by the Skaarj. Initially, the intensivity of mineral extraction was growing fast as well as energy consumption of the mine, so a high capacity generator connected with a central powernode was set in place, and it appears to be still functional. unrealdoom
: I admit that what you see on this screenshot may look pretty similar to Rradjigar and other skaarj mines. But I must also point out the fact that another musical background and environmental atmosphere should work on player's mind just right and change the impressions drastically."
Moving forward... The underground complex, though not working as a tarydium source any more, was not completely abandoned by its owners. A sort of a "detention center" was built here, the screenshot is actually taken from the security room. At first, the idea was in creating an additional full level looking like an underground prison, from the player was meant to escape. Now it became just one of "Heavy Clouds" locations, but still it's a place of interest - and danger, indeed! It was designed to keep the prisoners from escaping, so it may prove to be much fun with the brutes on the upper levels and a sniper too...
Another pic to show the ex-importance of the complex - some mysterious abandoned industrial building with the reserve lights still on. Yes, the picture looks too dark may be, but there is an uncrossible pit hidden in this darkness, so we'll look on that building from the other side of it. Those strange platforms were built for the technical stops for cargo mine cars, which moved in numbers here, when complex was still operational.
These two pics are a visual reminder for us that we are now lost in the middle of the hostile territory, almost face to face with the enemy, near the Mothership. This bleak gloomy is very unfriendly itself, local mountains are holding the air defense turrets, the skies are being teared apart by roaring Skaarj Fighters and rampant thunderstorms.
The next pair of pics are from the second Outpost, which is presented in the 'Heavy Clouds'video, but now the outpost has been modificated - and the recent changes are shown below.
And finally - tha place where exit from the level is located. Yet another Tarydium plant, which reminds of the second AR level's ending. Fully built by one person, our mapper King89.
Here is the outside and inside views.
Thanks for your attention, as always, feedback is appreciated!
And happy holidays yet again!
