This topic is for discussion of map: SPIFFENs Bird 2


Author: SPIFFEN

Desc:
This is called Bird because of the ending ,
but its more like an bridge map .
So see if you can find the best way to make the bridge safe ,
so you can fly to connect the Totems .

I'm stumped.  Getting across wasn't bad.  I even managed to get the upgrades.  Nothing I try gets me across the wall.  Hint? Help? Video walk-through?

Thanks,

Charlie

Build collectors on the other side of the pink wall and float a weapon over it back and forth untill everything is powered up. Try not to lose the connection.

Float the tower/weapon over the wall UP AND DOWN , then it stays connected for an longer time .
Use the land/space where the upgrades is to do it .

roccologic has an Avatar (GIF) that shows how the tower/weapon should be moved :

but how do you get the first collector on the right?  when I go up and down the middle, no connections are made, or are even attempted to be made?

I think you mean Totem , so :
You need to build an collector on the other side of the wall first .

in the animated GIF, there is a collector that is "active" on the right?  I can't get anything active on the right.   when I move my Blaster up and down the pink line, none of the collectors try to connect to it.  i also have it disarmed like in the GIF.

Disarming is not necessary (although you might want to save the energy used for ammo). One of the collectors needs to be 'active' (that is: connected to Odin City through the network). If you don't see a white network connection line the collectors are too far away, or your blaster is not exactly above the crazonium wall.

Try to do something like this :

Use pause to change the way it fly , so you dont lose connection to 1 of the collectors .

Dont pay to much attation to the gif , i only used it to illustrate that the tower should move up and down along the red wall .

thanks for the help, but it is just not working.  I am doing exactly what you said (and it makes perfect sense to me) and just like in the screen shot, but it will not connect.

thanks again.   oh well

To be honest I think a map that requires bridging should always be rated 'Expert Only'. This will avoid these kind of questions. I know it's mentioned in the description and I also know about your policy of rating all your maps 'Trivial', but in this case you should have made an exception. You're lucky that I didn't review this map, as I would have changed the rating.... ;)

He he =) I have seen an post about bridging should be rated as experts only ,
but if i had done that in this map , i think the comments had been nags about that the map isnt for experts only =P

And the bridging as it is in this map , isnt for experts anymore .
Just very hard for new players that havent learnd this yet .

Maybe an try of this map might help :
