This topic is for discussion of map #1251: A Tragedy Forgotten Part 2


Author: Ebon Heart and PeterPower

Desc:
The second installment of my series. Sorry it took so long guys, the third one should be coming shortly. Warning: the map laggs a bit at the end, but it's well worth it. And make sure you read the text, it's a cool story, and there are a lot of helpful hints there. The map will be easier if you don't have to feel your way around in the dark. (it's a joke, you'll see why)

After a few minor setbacks, the time has arrived. The second map in the, "A Tragedy Forgotten" series. If you haven't played it already, try Part 1 before playing this map. This map is a bit more difficult than the first, so just tread lightly. Don't let the vines intimidate you at the start, build lots of shields, save frequently, you'll do fine. Make sure to read, there's some helpful tips that can keep the map from biting you in the butt. Knowledge is power, and know that at 10 minutes, things get crazy. Save before then, if you figure out what's coming and figure out how to prepare it, it's pretty easy. Remember to use your anti creeper. For full enjoyment, mute the game and play this suggested soundtrack.

PeterPower did the tile design, and designed the temple up top. He also made the epic dragon at the bottom. I did the field work and everything else. PeterPower kind of left halfway through this map, and I don't know where he is right now.  :'( But at least he's done a lot of stuff on the other maps. He did most of the design for Part 3 already, and Part 4 is layed out already, as is part 5. (with some epic creeper art already) :D So I think I can still make this work. The next map should not take quite so long. have fun everyone!

If you guys have questions about this map, ask away! I can almos guarantee you are not the only one with that question, and if I know what advice to give, it can help everyone. The map is difficult, I'll give you that. And more two times as many thumbs down as scores makes me uneasy. :P would anyone be willing to do a video of this map? I'd like to, but I don't do videos. I fail at them.

The surprise Creeper from nowhere is always a little disheartening.
I have good 'saves' I can go back to and build all the additional Shields, but will have to decide if I want to.

It was a very fun game up until that point. Clever start and fun working through the 'riddle' of the impossible by-pass.

I'm not doing one of your "rage quits" (love that phrase), but will take a break.

Ahh, I made sure to not do any teleporting creeper, but at 10 minutes stuff starts flying around. That's why I kept stressing, build shields everywhere! And beware the plant, but I figured people would be able to get that part easily enough. :P the only teleporting creeper appears when you should already be in the boss pit and prepared. I wonder if I stressed that enough. Lol. Everything up top is supposed to be destroyed, you have to build a system that can support you in the arena at the bottom before grabbing the beacon tech.

Perfect, you have no idea how badly I need someone to bounce ideas off of for ATF3. I've been Inc at random people on chat. :P and you realize launchers help a lot with that boss battle, right? (PS. Terrania will likely be the third most difficult battle in this series)
