Moonbase Assault

Hi everyone,

a lot of you may remember Laser Squad. I used to play it a lot against my cousin. So I was very happy when I discovered Frozen Synapse (my cousin and I actually worked on a very similar game in the past).

Since I was feeling nostalgic I decided to do a remake of Moonbase Assault, my favourite level from Laser Squad.

This is my first homemade level, so it's pretty basic and only set up for extermination with 8 units per side. no zones and stuff yet for single player/other modes. If anyone wants to help playtest it that would be appreciated. post any comments or other ideas below.

to start a multiplayergame:
- unpack
MA.zip
zip containing encounterfile
(2.87 KiB) Downloaded 472 times
- place MA.enc in C:\FrozenSynapse\psychoff\data\userlevels
- create a multiplayergame
- go to advanced setup
- select load level, enter 'MA.enc'
- submit
- choose an opponent, adjust the turnlimit (I put it at 100)
- submit and have fun!!!

grtz

@icebrain: can't PM you, probably cause I've not been active enough on the forums.

okay to post this level on your new FS site, as long as you give me some credits. And please make sure I get some feedback so I can optimize it.

the image only shows team 1 because I took the screenshot while playtesting. Team 2 starts in the centre of the map.

Hi martyrAD,

been a while since I visited the forums. I'll start a match with you. I'm not sure if you need to install the map yourself or if the game automatically downloads it.

I added the latest version (
MA2.zip
(2.52 KiB) Downloaded 448 times
) to this message. If it doesn't automatically downloads, unpack this to C:\FrozenSynapse\psychoff\data\userlevels\

I'm mostly online once a day to make my moves. Reply to this topic to contact me if necessary, cause I can't use PM in these forums (yet).

do you see the map after you load the challenge? or is it completely blank?

maps there, as are all the units, but no icons, and no user interface at the bottom.

okay, maybe this was because I had not yet submitted my first turn? I just did, so please try again and let me know.

hmm, that sux...

the map is the absolute maximum size, but that shouldn't be a problem. Let's try the other way around, you start a game with this map and invite me. Let me know on which server you start it. Instructions are in the first post of this thread.

make sure you use MA2.enc, it has some improvements over ma.enc.

hope this works. I've already played this map against another player, so I know it should work.
