Galen decided to work on the success of his previous map, Crucible, and produce a somewhat similar map in terms of gameplay. Landing Pad has a huge middle arena, which also houses *shock and surprise* two landing pads, that serves as the main focus. You'll also find two of the most powerful weapons here (Photon and Welder) with plenty of ammo. However, this isn't all there is to the map. On opposite sides are sniping towers appropriately equipped with the IMod or the Rifle. There are also two corridors running along the other two sides (this is also the only area where you can possibly get some cover). The map isn't clipped at all, so you can get on the ledges, climb on the walls... you can even jump off the map into space if you want, except that you'd die so best to avoid that situation ;)
This map is definitely a pure free for all. It's a very simple layout yet there has been thought given to the elements within the map. I'd imagine with many players it can lead to some chaotic fun!

This is the first map I've released in almost a year! I've worked on about 5 or 6 maps, but just couldn't ever seem to finish one. This map, "Landing Pad," came about because so many people bug me... "Galen, make another map like Crucible with a big open space so we can just frag!" Apparently, despite what a crappy design Crucible was, most people love it because it's HUGE and open. Well, your wish is my command! Here is another big map and this time there's almost nowhere to hide! Mwahahahahaha! And, as always, there's a secret. Just try to find it. Here's a hint: It's NOT the goodies behind the towers :) Any questions, comments, problems, or whatever, feel free to e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org | | | H a p p y F r a g g i n g ! | | |
