    Nebulous - The robots have breached the outer defenses! Time to hold the center!

    Nebulous is a map that takes place in the inner confines of a nuclear reactor, the robots have made it into the very core itself! And the line must be held here.

    Nebulous is an experimental map in that after I saw this one mvm map from potato's demo files (mvm_codelco_a7) that I wanted to try the idea of a gatebot map where the gate is a shortcut through the map VS a forward spawn. This map features alot of unique elements like tanks with branching paths and alot of logic triggers currently.

    I would often joke around calling this map "decoy 2.0" with how small it is and how little time it would take robots to reach the hatch without opening the shortcut.

    For the time being it comes with a mission (by yours truly) that shows off all the features this map currently has to offer, the mission is intermediate for the sake me feeling the default mission needs to be alot easier in a map like this.

    Anyways have fun and leave feedback <3

    Icons belong to their respective creators, the Christian brutal Sniper Icon is only temporary as i wanted something to stand out for the Meltdown health bar unless I'm allowed to use it fully.

    I keep my change logs inside the featured mission pop file, they go as follows:


    //Changelog A2

    //--map changes
    //fixed a glitch/naming oversight that would make burning gatebots ignore gate B after gate A is capped
    //fixed chaos mode bugs with gatebots
    //capping gate A opens the small side doors for small bots to go through, but giants must still take the long way
    //altered tank paths, they no longer go through a gate that can't be opened lol
    //Expanded and reworked the front, moved the tanks closer to the gates
    //Made the map overall asemmetrical


    //removed the gate, and replaced it with a stuck version that only players can jump through

    //--Mission changes


    //Overloading heavies are now called heavies rather than soldiers
    //swapped wave 3 and wave 2
    //swapped wave 4 and wave 5
    //The Gatebot KGB's still have soldier gatebot hats after capping A, I left this in because I felt it was funny, deal with it :p

    //Wave 2-escape plan soldiers are no longer part of a subwave and spawn slower, reduced their count. Reduced Mannmelter pyros counts, reduced KGB support heavies by 1 bot, and greatly reduced the scout mission supports
    //wave 4-added another subwave (this wave was really short and likely too easy)
    //Wave 5-added support burning heavies that start spawning on the 2nd subwave, increased max gatebot backups to 15
    //Wave 6-added gatebot backups to the 2nd subwave
    //Wave 7-made this wave "harder", added fallout jokes

    //Changelog A3

    //Removed left over files from vicious vices in the zip file, whoops! Also removed the nav file as it's not needed.
    //Removed Chaos mode, after removing the gates it got a bit irrievent to keep and no one wants this anyways.
    //Removed gate A and changed areas where they used to be, made gate B into gate A.

    //Added crates to the rightside that the tank can run through and make a shortcut
    //added a backarea for the leftside that robots must take until the crates are broken
    //removed the jammed door, and made a new shortcut from the hatch to gate A that's out of the way of the bots, raised the ground below the drop down hatch, made the hatch doors open much faster, added a 1-way door from the hatch to this dropdown area
    //seperated the left and right side of gate A with fences, to offer more cover but not block sight lines

    //--Mission changes

    //reworked all waves to accomidate for the fact that gatebots now cap A; all tanks have has less HP

    //wave 1-has no gate bots and now uses pyros over scouts, that's pretty much it.
    //wave 2-uses gatebot bat scouts as a tutorial bot to introduce the gates.
    //wave 7-increased robot delay on the final subwave and cut down some bots
