    Spacepost - Defend against the robot invasion on Red's crucial spacepost

    Gray Mann has launched attacks on all of Red's bases and failed, all except for one. In an attempt to catch the Mercs off guard he launches an attack on their space operation. It's your job to stop the incoming invasion and keep the spacepost safe

    Apparently the last time we uploaded this I didn't even have the first advanced popfile. Ooops.
    In that case, a major changelog to advanced wouldn't accomplish much but the notable things are:
    • Switched around waves 2 and 3. Wave 2 was a major pain in the arse with the amount of money given in wave 1. So now hopefully it'll be less oppressive on defenders.
    • Reduced spam, increased tank HP across all waves. These were the major changes that just needed to happen. I don't like the rigid "spawn, rest" style that Two Cities has, but sometimes my waves get a little too loose to the point medic shield might be required. Hopefully now it'll still be advanced without being a total pushover
    • A final boss wave has been added. Who gives a crap about gravity?

    Saying "it's an artpass" doesn't begin to describe the work that was done by Flipy and Beto on this.
    Have some screenshots.

    • Adjusted outdoor stairs
    • Half-clipped spiral stairs (the slope is too steep to fully clip them and you'd just get stuck)
    • Lowered volume of some sounds
    • Robots now beep and boop
    • Fixed getting stuck on a displacement
    • Aligned some textures better
    • Adjusted displacement alphas
    • Adjusted some misc details
    • Adjusted some clipping
    • Disabled fog
    • Changed one red ammo overlay to be white
    • Fixed a nodraw
    • A bit more optimization
    • Fixed Robot entity spam (probably)
    Robot class icons are now provided in their own folder instead of being packed along with the map, be sure to install them to play the map properly!

    Informed Beto about this back in the day but now that I think of it, I'm letting you off too easy with keeping you oblivious about this little thing:
    [​IMG]
    This spot here doesn't seem like much but you can toss the bomb up here and Giants won't be able to get the bomb, leading to some easy waves if there's no small Robots left to fit here (this also means that Sentries built here are 100% safe from Sentry Busters)
