Hard (especially - fast particles!), but very nice game! Too many particles (lag in game), but enjoyable!
Hope, gameplay and design will be good present for V!  :)
From me 10/10 and thanks!

Yeah, i lost a lot of ships in the middle section because of the fast particles.
On my laptop i tested the map with emitters and no mire spawners. After that i tested with mire spawners and no emitters.
With me the mire caused the most lag but yeah all systems react differently.
And thanks for the comment much appreciated from a excellent map maker yourself :)

10/10, my favourite map of yours to date and a fitting tribute. I loved that there was a huge amount going on and lots of options for attack plus lots of sneaky ways to send omnis off on little missions:
(click to show/hide)

The only thing to confuse me a little was all of the ship icons around the map, they are selectable so I spent a while trying to nulifiy/connect them to power. They are actually just ornamental!

Didn't distract though, great map.

Yes. I also spend a lot of times to try activate something interesting in this ornament...  ;)

I know, it's a great map. When he came to me with ideas, I was a little skeptical, but he really pulled it off magnificently. At first, I thought the ships wouldn't be well balanced enough, or too much of glass cannons or unworkable for players. It's one of my favorites too.

With a little more PRPL, he could have made some of those cores do interesting things. Maybe next map, huh, Foxx?

As an idea: some of elements of beautiful ornaments will works as partial totem. By other words one or several elements after activation will work as totem, but not for all enemies (just destroy one or several enemies or enemies of certain types).

One more idea: after activation of some element (elements) will be  created new "ship pickup", "omni pickup", "blue emitter"  or something else (maybe not in the same place, but in any other place).

Third idea (if possible): more bigger size map, and if You activate some element of ornaments will appear (disclosure) new segment/part of map (possibly with land, enemies or emitters)!  :)  With this idea possible to create "flexible map" with different difficulty level upon demand of Player.

If you're interested, I can help with scripts for these.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to use scripts yet...  :-[

Yes the first setup was very bad. the letters were way to big. Glad it turned out to be like this.
You know the story Sorrontis. The inspiration came back  :)

And working on the next project with some great people  ;)

Good ideas, going to think about it

Hmm, we can do a version 2 of this map maybe?
Maybe implement some of Yum's ideas

Really great game will be possible to create if can be realized 3-rd idea:
500x500 size map, and if You activate some element of ornaments will appear (disclosure) new segment/part of map (small mini-map possibly with land, enemies or emitters)! With this idea possible to create "flexible map" with different difficulty level upon demand of Player.

P.S. Interesting to get opinion of other participants of our Forum.  ;)

Yum, while the concept is interesting, the 500x500 is not. Better, perhaps, to build more, smaller maps. This idea would turn into something like planetfall's "Fourth Time's The Charm" from CW3.

FOXX, maybe, but it might be more fun to try an entirely new map. (I feel some evil ideas coming - sacrifice of tech/ship plans for other bonuses, maybe?)
