Remember the really old maps?

Heyo NS mates.

I just got back to NS again a few days ago and I always remember, that version 3.2 has totally different versions from ns_eclipse for example. There are several other maps and I still compare them to their 1.0 and 2.0 versions. Hell, I even like ns_eclipse from NS 1.0 way more than the 3.0 version. I like the 3.0 version for sure, same with the 2.0 version, but somehow playing on the 1.0 version still gives me the biggest nostalgic feeling.

I always asked myself, if it would be interesting for any NS Gamer out there to play the really old maps again and if it would be good to have a special classic server running for this.

Greetings,

Maxunit

    they're not balanced or hard to play in most cases. (example: double hive siege spot on ns_hera)
    they show up from time to time on the bigger pub servers but they don't get much airtime.

    Hmm I see...

    that's sad to hear :/ Then I will think about it again launching a Server with the real classic maps.

    I miss the old pitfall in ns_nothing's generator room. :( I felt so cheated when that got removed. :p

    I'm working on a server right now, which includes all maps from NS 1.x and 2.x and runs the 1.04 Balance Plugins as well (and some more).

    You realise maps pre-NS2.0 have different hulls (or something similar) which cause playing problems with the current version of NS, right?

    Off the top of my head I thought that problem was limited to the 1.0 version of ns_nancy. And it's only an issue when you go Onos (you can get stuck in the floor while gestating).

    I actually noticed no problems while play testing and while using the AMX X Plugins, which fix some issues on the old maps. (like getting stucked etc)

    If you actually did this, I would gladly play.

    I loved the old ns_bast, it was the win

    The other day I actually walked around the old ns_agora again, definitely brought back some extremely old v2.1 playtesting memories. I guess it was removed due to a lost source or just imbalance? Right along the lines of ns_delta then too eh...

    Agora brought tears of boredom to my eyes.. in short it was imbalanced.

    I have to add that the "old" bast is definately my favorite ns map of all time. The ambience and the fights were amazing. So many epic back and forth battles back then.

    oh no, mineshaft was my favorite map. i miss it alot. it brings back the most memories of good times in ns for me as it was the first ns map i ever played, i remember walking around not know quite what to do and i got myself a bit lost and alone then a skulk jumped me and i ###### my pants... almost :D


    any news if the ns 1 maps server is up and running?

    I actually really enjoyed mineshaft, it was pretty annoying on aliens but as marines you could definitely rack up a nice amount of kills :) Alien side it was all about the ambushing and working together. And yeah old eclipse made me sad! :(

    funny, i always figured it was the otherway around, that it was the marines who had it really tough on mineshaft. as i remember it marines seldome won on that map. the times that i played marine that was, i always seem to end up on the loosing team. i mean its like 75% for me to end up on the loosing team. it is so persistent that sometimes i think im the cause :D
