Steep rc2

Mann vs. Machine vs. Mining vs. Mountain

  1. rc2

    Players and bots should no longer be able to escape the map, and engineer bots should build things on the ground instead of the air.

    I have updated the existing pop/nav downloads post to include new files for rc2. You can also "get" the new files by just renaming your existing files, because that's all I did.

  7. a8

    Idolon
    map changes:
    -added cave flank
    -resized hatch area to fit in a staircase so standing on the hatch isn't a dead-end
    -moved hill deathpit to center so its more difficult to use
    -resized both deathpits to 256 untis wide instead of 384 to make them more difficult to use
    -changed lighting near cave deathpit to make it read more like one
    -nudged the stairs in the hill building around some
    -added nobuild to small roof sections on hill building
    -moved full health from main hill building to mid...
  8. a7

    Idolon
    map changes:
    -redid hill route pretty much completely. building is totally redone to better support its use in fighting robots and the reset route has been replaced with a deathpit (fence is now directly by train tracks and a small section of it is missing)
    -cave route got a makeover so each of the pre-existing platforms overlooking the bomb path is more easily accessible and usable. the reset route is gone and there is now a deathpit. pickups got all moved around as per usual
    -increased map...
  9. a6

    Idolon
    map changes:
    -moved convergence into the hillside by 256 units. this should make the two bomb paths more similar in length
    -rescaled several things near the convergence: both paths in are now 320 wide instead of 256/384, red building on hill is now 384 wide instead of 512
    -removed hopper dropzone in cave because it was hard to use and conflicted with other geometry after resizing things
    -nudged rock pile at entry area up 16 units to make certain jumps easier
    -simplified geometry at lower bot...
