    Hi everyone,

    Since I started playing a bit of Trouble in Terrorist Town again, I remembered that I had been working on a map for a few months prior to 2018. I stopped working on it late December because I had no motivation to work on it, and my passion for TTT had died. The reason I started in the first place was twofold. Number one, I needed something to distract me because I got dumped, and number two, I absolutely HATE lunar base. I think it's the shittiest map in TTT existence. There is literally nothing which can surpass the level of doggshittery which I experience every time I have to load that godforsaken map. Props to the mapper though, he gave me some good ideas.

    Because I don't want this work to go to waste, I decided to finally get around to posting some screenshots of the map, to see if anyone is interested in seeing this map completed.

    Details about the map:

    My current name for this is "moonarbase". There is no real backstory to the map at the moment, other than the fact that it is a lunar colony which you can live in. I was inspired by some of the maps from Half-Life and Half-Life 2, and a combination of other designs which I like. This is a work in progress, so I haven't fully integrated easter eggs, secret knives (vomit), traitor traps, but the tester is fully working. You can only use it four times. I wanted to avoid having a single floor, and I don't like how in Lunar base you can't go out into the moon's atmosphere, so in this map, you can actually walk on the lunar surface. I wanted it to really feel like a colony, so the map is naturally big. There are warehouses, storage, power generators, laboratories, tunnels, communication centers, a canteen, garage, wind turbines (SOLAR TURBINES!!), elevators, and map easter eggs. There is probably more stuff but I've forgotten. Anyway, I hope these screenshots generate some interest and validate my efforts!

    Feedback is highly appreciated and VALUED. If you'd like me to complete this map, scream at me either in this thread, the shoutbox, in-game or via steam message / comments.

    It looks very nice. Nice concept and design. Would be a great replacement for lunarbase +Tahi.
    Keep working on it and hopefully it can get added

    Because of the degree of support expressed, I'll be happy to work on the map for an hour or two each day for the next four weeks.

    I will update the thread week-by-week, and I will release the .bsp file for testing purposes in two weeks.

    Thanks for your support everyone.

    Update 3/05/2018

    - Added a buttfuck load of spawns.
    - Updated some more lighting.
    - Added weapons EVERYWHERE.
    - Updated a little less lighting.
    - Fixed an issue with the Skybox (I don't know how I stuffed it up, but...)
    - Added some more aesthetic things.
    - Prepared Map for final compile.

    turkey has offered to let me test the map on a dedicated server, so if anyone wants to join...that would be a good time. Let me know what it needs more of, what it needs less of, and other shit like that. I know people just LOVE their T traps, so any ideas on that front would be appreciated. And feedback is appreciated in general!
