Woah, that's pretty neat. I didn't know custom HQs were a thing already.

let me guess: you used prpl to replace the HQ block for block and spawned it in afterwards?
PS: where can you find the PRPL code used in a mission?

For PRPL extraction, see this guide.

Not having played yet, but it may be that the standard HQ is unrelated to the one in the screenshot, if a theory I have on the map construction  is correct.

A narrative is a lightly-marked path to another reality.

No PRPL used in this map :)

However, you can now extract my ship and use it as a template for yours :) (Also, it's not officially the HQ, since you'll see it at the bottom right of the ship boxes)

Wow, I see this was a pretty early map. I thought it was a pretty decent challenge - nothing too drastic, but a more-difficult-than average map, and the bonus in the middle was super helpful =)

Dunno if anyone is even reading these Sorrontis map posts, but I think this map was pretty cool.  ;D

You disagree with this sentence, don't you?

I sure am, when I'm around :) You (almost) always make me laugh. I like your metaphors.

Thx m8!

I figure with all the work you & others put into these maps, the very LEAST that I can do is write something about how these maps have helped me get nominated for several Oscar Awards and enable me to do handstands while riding a wild horse. Or maybe that's my Old Spice deodorant. Either way, I don't know where I'd be without these maps.
Probably in the White House.

Or maybe I actually AM in the White House and this I'm using these maps to test new political strategies! oooOOoooo ya never know! #Potus45
