This topic is for discussion of map #28: The Super Collider

Desc:
Shut down a super collider that has tapped into another dimension... the dimension of the loki. The fields are amazing here, if I do say so myself. This is the real version of the map, I uploaded the wrong version last time. My bad!

While this is by no means the only way to do it, what I consider the best (and probably unintended) way to go about the beginning:

After the beginning I find it really boring, it's just a matter of slogging it out and the capsules won't be threatened for an extremely long time.

Yay, this is finally live! This is my first map, so it has some cosmetic errors and balancing issues, but it's a start. I made a few changes to my other maps last night.... So I need to get scores for them and get them up. This one just has cool fields and the like. :D

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The smart left a long time ago.

I got to the point where you get the cube that tells you to save, glad I did. I dropped a couple  F bombs after that.

Kithros - not sure how you managed to do that. I keep getting these checkerboard do-hickey's that explode and spread creeper all over the place.

Not sure how to even get started on this thing.

I will give some information to the newbies who try this map. This is because some people might find it frustrating to win.
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Hope this helped.

Ebon, one complaint, TOO MUCH CREEPER!!!
I liked those fields a lot though...


DON'T FORGET TO SAVE!!!!!

PS: Ebon, hope you aren't going to dislike this post, I just wanted to help some players. To make it up to you, you can go ahead and post all the secrets of my map if I ever make one.

All - thanks for the comments and tips. I'll keep working on it.

For the record, Ebon is a black-hearted ramafratzer!
LOL.

Can't even make it through the top part of the screen.
I played through all of the pre-canned games when CW2 came out, but there seems to be a lot of modifiers added since then.

Good thing CW is still around to have fun with.

Thanks Mare, I thought about doing something like that but decided I'm too lazy. And seriously... Don't attack those X's until after you get dark beam tech. Also, please note, this map is rather poorly balanced, first map, gimme a break. Lol. And you should seen what the editor was like back then!
EDIT: I'm working on a version 2 of this map atm... lots of changes, should be a bit easier, and less of a slog. The bottom will be harder though, even if it won't take as long. I just need to beat it and get it up now.
SECOND EDIT: Version 2 is below if you want a sneak peak, not tested yet, but I need a way to transfer it from my computer to my laptop... I figured I might as well accomplish 2 things at once. :D

I just completed it. My only regret is not recording that attempt.

Wish you had.... I get a google alert whenever you post a youtube video for creeper world.  I usually head over and give them a watch when they are posted.
