No More Room in Hell Level Design

No More Room in Hell mod has been released to the public as a beta and is still be updating as read this post. It is a zombie horror modification using the Source Hammer Engine 2007 that is available in the link for free. I’ve tried out the mod and I must say I am quite impressed with the possibilities of level layouts, stories, themes, moods, and objectives just from this FPS zombie shooter genre. I went through the maps and examined the multi-branch objective system and discovered interesting game-play mechanics as well as fresh replay-ability. Currently I’ll be developing custom maps for this mod and post high quality custom maps for players to marvel and enjoy. Wish me luck and hope to see what kind of custom levels can come out of this mod.

Assault Coop v3.0 Update

Assault Coop is nearing its completion with more bug-fixes and additions each coming moment. Campaign coop will be featured in the first release of Assault Coop v3.0. Also, there is a new implemented random spawn system that turns each experience to a new one.

Campaign Coop will change the original far cry single campaign to work for coop. In Assault Coop the campaign maps have random number, position, and behavior of the AI so that each play through won’t always be the same. Players can expect a much more difficult campaign with stealthy snipers, greater number of AI, fierce gunfire, and even hidden item spawns.

Here is recent game play footage of a original map and convert to coop.

The updated random spawn system allows easier and faster map setup. Mappers can complete AI setup much quicker, allow players to have a different experience, and give more re-playability to the maps.

Here is another video of gameplay with ZOMBIES :D The setup time for the zombie waves was around 5 minutes and you can achieve some fun results.

More updates include additional pre-textured models and improved blood particle effects. They are added to give much more variety to the enemies. No more seeing the same 10 models like in the previous versions. With the updated spawn generators, mappers can choose a much wider variety of mercenaries to face the players. Also, who doesn’t want more blood when killing the bad guys?

More Pre-Textured Mercs! Improved Blood Particle Effect

Custom maps by me(Flameknight7) will be in the release and shall include the .cry files so coop mappers will able to use them as reference. In case if you missed it, here are several shots of custom maps.

The release of Assault Coop v3.0 will include:
– Campaign Coop (yes all 20 original maps for coop)
– FFA/TDM maps – wave game mode (waves of enemies spawn)
– ASSAULT maps – coop game mode (clear out the bases)
– ASSAULT PX maps – defense game mode (defend the flag from enemy capture)
– custom maps
– custom model packs
– Flameknight7’s Assault Coop mappers guide
– a whole bunch of other features and bug-fixes that can’t fit here
