I want to know what people think about this map; was it too easy? I'm having a hard time deciding what difficulty to make this series. :)

Fisherck - for me it was just right. Fun, I had to make some decisions, and it kept me actively involved for the entire time.

I don't like the quickie games that you can fly through, and I can't stand the 'slog' games. IMO, this was an excellent balance.

Thanks for putting it together.

YAY

Next one is out. Thanks :D

Relatively straight forward mission. I think that the higher creep area ought to have had a bit more creep in it, possibly compressed via an artificial gravity field (to avoid it spilling)
Ah well, I fully expect some evil field usage eventually.

I still feel that the repulsor, microright, and repulsor tech ought not be available (microrift maybe, since it is human tech, otherwise standard protocall would not exist :P)

Thank you for the comments! As for the techs, I forgot to remove the microrift and phantom coil tech...  :) The repulser has been  there since the beginning, but the other two are not suposed to be there. Oh well, I'll probably just ignore this mistake in the storyline...

Even better to realize I said repulsor twice, instead of phantom coil, and how both of us failed to notice. :p

This was a fun map.  Easier than the others in this series, but a nice break.  Are you going to created more in this story series?  I'm looking forward to more if you are.

Thanks! I'm working on the game mechanics of the next map right now. I will probably finish it next weekend. School is keeping me pretty tied up right now :)
