Yes I like OMG 2 a lot. If you play this map you will see that. This map is kind of like it, but more orientated to my likings.

This was meant to be a piss-about type map, but I ended up adding various puzzles/challenges to unlock more secrets and bonuses. You have to do the puzzles in order. Feel free to just piss about and die a lot if you like.

There is no ending, you just have to keep DYING until the time runs out. You will know when you've reached the awesome people only room though.

This map was started out of complete boredom and a desire to practise my mapping skills.

Starting hint: look the other side of the pond from where you start for a special item, then check out the two places that the item lets you get to.

Additional info

A discussion of this map is also available on the Sven Co-op forums here.

Server administrators

You can teleport or no-clip to co-ordinates "0 0 -2048" to reach some controls can only be reached by using such a plug-in or cheat to do so. You can find it easily by no-clipping down directly from the fail cave.

If you do decide to use no-clipping mode you must also use non-solid mode, as there is an invisible trigger around the room that takes you back to the duckroll cage.

Known issues

This map requires Sven Co-op 4.6 or later to run because it uses some new entity features from it.

You may experience low/choppy FPS while standing on the ice tower while looking back at the mountain. This never happened on Sven Co-op 3 with default graphics settings, I'm convinced it's a high-quality graphics settings/models shipped with Sven Co-op 4 causing this. Please let me know if you find out what it is.
