Revisions to Defense have been made and is now ready for review (attached below).

That's more than 10 times less and it still sounds the same ! The song is also 2 mins 45 seconds long.

My music takes up around 700kb total. I can definitely make it smaller, but I'd rather not because it would just sound awful and destroy its purpose on the map. I'm gonna check it out and see if it would reduce the size without sacrificing quality. Thanks for the link!

Another thing I should mention: The amount of ammo created from the supply drop is affected by the amount of NPC marines still alive. Marines have priority over ammo, so you'll get less of it if you don't keep those marines alive.


It took me longer than expected, but I finally finished the pre-release version of Defense. A lot of people were suggesting that I change the layout of the base, so I did just that.

As well, I found a suitable model for the dropship. This change will be reflected in all S3MC maps. Clear and sufficient credit has been given in the F9 menu.

Considering summer is here, I'll probably be doing something other than work on maps for a bit. Check it out whenever you get a chance. I'll be taking a look at this thread for updates from time to time. Have fun!
