Yes, sorry for the disorientation, I thought I stated it clearly: SP-Inside is a little updated version of SP-Inside The Lab. To mark a difference I thought of renaming the map title. But instead of adding a [V1.1], which UT doesn't load then, I shortened the file name to make it more pregnant.

[spoiler]I liked all the small details in the lab, and the main room looked good in general (for a horde combat it was maybe slightly too dark though). Emphasising a rarely used weapon was a cool idea, and it was helpful here. It seemed like the Skaarj did most of the damage for you, although the fight would extremely hard if they didn't. There's not much that could be done about it but the framerate got a bit bad when the whole room is being covered in bio-sludge. A fun combat map.[/spoiler]

Mman's spoiler just about sums up my opinion. I beat it on Medium quite easily but on Hard I kind of lost it the first time, the second time I made it without too much hassle but without prior knowledge of the map allowing subsequent tactical decisions I would consider this difficult. I'll play on Unreal once I've finished all the other contest maps.

Fun map. :)

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad that I got so many replies! :)
Has anyone of you an idea why the AlarmPoints don't work properly in UT?

I have made a GesBioRifle subclass and included it in that map. Now the Skaarj Troopers will much better estimate how high they have to shoot to hit you.

I have also slightly increased the Skaarj Lords' movement and projectile speed, because the Skaarj Troopers are much more dangerous now.

Very unexpected, but thanks. :) When we do a compilation, your version will be taken. Did you also figure out why the Skaarj don't follw the AlarmPoints in UT?

I don't know, if this is possible. A rule said no mylevel content allowed. Perhaps this also states for the compilation.

If you made another version and want to include my zGesBioRifle, all you have to do is: Open my modified map and then open your map and then you should find the zGesBioRifle class in the actor browser.

I don't know about the Alarmpoints. Strange that it is only in ut99. I will have a look.

Somehow the troopers in the front row block the paths of the troopers in the rear rows. So they don't find the way to the alarm point and give up. I have tried a lot, but I didn't find an easy way to ensure all 6 troopers find their way. All I can say is make some alternative paths to the alarmpoint by adding a lot of path nodes (between the teleporters until there where they finally jump down). Probably you will need more than one try.

edit:Of course I meant path nodes, not path points

We can wait what sana says. I don't think that that would be a problem since in this compilation there are also the maps from last year's contest included, of which many of them had custom content.

Thanks for your explanation! In the next days I'll try to fix this.
