As some of you already know, I started working on a second build of ns2_trash, specifically for 6 vs 6 competitive play named ns2_unearthed.

I'll update here with changelogs as they come, for the full thread see here - https://forums.unknownworlds.com/discussion/153023/ns2-unearthed

Changelog based off of a scrim/mix last night -

- Removed Transfer to West Route vent
- Added Transfer to Mining Tunnel vent
- Removed some of the Overlook vents
- Rebuilt the Elevator ceiling to reduce complexity
- Altered some aspects of Routing to make routes more clear
- Added collision geometry to the Transfer staircase

Please give feedback on the changes and any further changes that may need to be made.

I'd especially appreciate feedback/ideas/comments on the Overlook vent that is remaining, is it still too strong? is there a better way for the vent to exist? should it not exist at all? etc etc.

Changelog: -

- Rebuilt Lookout from scratch (now named Hallway)
- Rebuilt Elevator from scratch (now named Overlook)
- Rebuilt Junction from scratch
- Rebuilt Power Supply from scratch (now named Crevice)

The above rooms now show the theme that will be slowly brought mapwide.

- changed layout of Routing to make flow feel more natural
- Opened the connection from Furnace to Lava Pit to reduce visual cluttering in the area
- altered the northern part of Testing, reducing the overall size of the room and swapping the RT and TP locations.
- Altered the West route RT platform to allow marines to see underneath
- added props and grating to Support to make Line of Sight on the RT more difficult
- Increased Transfer to mining tunnel Vent height to allow marines to bunnyhop through
- altered Expansion cover around the RT
- Changed vent textures to make them a little more interesting

EXPERIMENTAL -

After discussing changes and ideas with Herakles, he mentioned adding a vent from Lava Pit to the newly built Power Supply (Now called Crevice)
Due to the power of this vent we decided it should come with a risk and we settled on it being a "lava-vent" that will cause damage over time while you're in it.
Marines WILL need medpacks to make it through, you cannot survive.
Skulks "can" make it through, but you need to be fast and even then, expect to be very low on health.
Lifeforms can all make it through (not including the onos) but you may want to think twice if you're low on HP and trying to escape.

Due to the experimental nature of the vent, I would appreciate feedback on it, good and bad.

The fault is not with the map, but with the way steam is handling mods at the moment, the devs are trying to fix it for build 320, but its possible for ANY mod to crash a server at the moment.

Changelog (finally!):

- Rebuilt Drainage, now called Filtration.
- Rebuilt Newall.
- Rebuilt Support.
- Rebuilt Furnace, now combined with the southern part of lava pit and renamed Drill Site.
- Rebuilt Ready Room.
- Fixed some occlusion bugs and stuck spots throughout the map.

Additional note, I have made Testing an alien spawn as a trial, if it works i'll keep it, if not it will be back to Reactor only.

After some feedback I've also done the following -

- Renamed Hallway to Passage for more clear call-outs
- Added some crates for cover in testing
- Lowered the rails in support
- Adjusted commander invisibility to make the minimap more clear
- Applied a force-field texture to the invisible wall blocking the under-passage from crevice to reactor (this is temporary while I decide how to detail the area more appropriately
