: Hmm, maybe some maps in the terms would help, like, not give too much away,
That's a good idea, the Watcher should mention the possible malfunctions before sending you there, and can show you a pic of the main door. In fact, it'd probably be a good idea to put a terminal outside that main door explaining that it's damaged due to flooding and you'll have to find another way in...
: I guesse it's like the sprite is missing. There isn't any hint of a
Hmm will definitely have to investigate that. Have you replayed those levels and seen the same thing again? Has anybody else seen this?
: The biggest problem is the number of headless. They can completly fill those
It sounds like the Wave Motion Cannon would be very handy for those situations... except that if any of the enemies gets too close to you, or you accidentally hit a nearby wall, you die instantly. Maybe I should make the Wave Motion Cannon and Gravitronic Blades do a different kind of damage, and make the player immune to that. It would make the Wave Motion Cannon kick much more ass, if you could use it in big crowds.
I've also been contemplating changing the look of the shot too; I'm thinking, invisible projectile, but have the impact look like Evil's nuke explosion (and since it's a persistent and virulent projectile, you get lots of impacts in big crowds). So it's like you're shooting an invisible wave which collides violently with everything in it's path.
: Well, the warning depends on how you want to inturprent the game. Does the
Marcus has been sent in with no specific instructions; he's improvising a way to blow up the ship. I imagine in-character he's thought "ah I've got to get up to the control deck, unlock the engineering core and block up the coolant drainage systems" or whatever, but as players you pretty much wing it. The ending is supposed to be an oh shit panic moment as the whole ship just starts exploding much more quickly than planned.
: I somehow missed reading any terminal in deep into the grotto. I read hathors
The only terminal is Hathor's message, and the Watcher's message on that same terminal. I noticed that force-field bug a few times but haven't figured out under what conditions you can pass through and under which you can't. There's actually six liquid forcefields, one of each of which is lowered when you deactivate a data core, so you shouldn't be able to get to the wires or terminal until they're all off... but somehow, sometimes, you can. I'm at a bit of a loss here as to why, though.
: I jumped out of both points and walked from the door, returning each time,
I think maybe I'll just put walls on the elevator. The level just feels really short and kind of weird when you can leap across a big section right into the middle of a combat zone and then just keep running. If you had to take the elevator down (due to it having walls), I think that would fit the mood much better: come into the combat head on, instead of just dropping out of the sky.
I'm also thinking of putting a lot more monsters in here, especially if I get the Wave Motion Cannon working better. This level is meant to be a big climactic battle to end all battles, with major carnage everywhere, two huge armies duking it out, and Marcus plowing through them all with Jjaro weaponry. But it just doesn't feel that way to me. What do you think? Take it up to 11, or too hard as it is?
Also, I'd like to add some monster (sparse) to Where Giants Have Fallen, since that seems a bit more realistic (the Pfhor should have been working their way up the mountain ahead of you, since they were backed up against there by the Enemy). But since that level's a bunch of delicate climbs and jumps, I'm not sure how good of an idea that is. Maybe just have them milling around the opening area? Put a Juggernaut or two in the sky, shooting at Nightmares? What if I make them ignore the player and just fight each other?
