=========

this project began in june 2011 with view to be released for the 10th of august 2011 as an entry into the china contest, sadly there was so much to do on this campaign it never made the deadline, but i finished it as quickly as was possible and here are the latest fixes

- nav mesh expansions covering all elevated areas
- optimisation measures
- added ammo and health point in map 2
- added tier 1 weapons to start of map 1
- replaced low res texture vehicles
- fixed the finale
- added more detail to level 1
- added warnings for the 1 sniper in map 2
- changed the auto shotgun soldier to use an ak47 instead (autoshotgun caused too much damage)
- added possible m60 on level3
- general tidying up

i will expand more on what ive done later, a big thank you to everyone who highlighted the maps flaws so i may fix them ,its made this week very long (2 updates in one week lol) but i think i managed to cover most if not all of the bugs mentioned but as always please let me know if you find any so i can add them to the list for the next update, hope you enjoy and thank you for playing!

======
map 1:
its set in china not new York, cant understand why some missed that fact as its pushed from start to finish :S.

map 2:
health and ammo are not plentiful atm this may be changed in an update, however there is plenty of pills and other weapons to pick up, but as always with left 4 dead there not handed to you on a plate you have to look for them.

Finale: in the finale the resuce music starts sooner than rescue arrives dont be fooled, rescue arrives 3 mins after the fuel is set running, dont forget the apc is from blood harvest, so you have to crouch to get inside.

hope you enjoy and any bug fixes please leave a comment rather than using a review as whacking stick, thanks for playing.

As a Chinese player , I'd like to ask the author if you have been to Beijing before . There won't be any slogans writing " No robbing " on the wall at all ! And another question , what is the reason for these CHINESE soldiers attacking the survivals ? R they crazy ? Or it is jut the image of Chinese soldier in your mind ? I am glad to see the maps about China because it means you have great interest in China , but please take more knowledge of China before making the map . To be honest , it made me confused when playing the map ---- it is not in Chinese in the least .

Well the answer to both questions is the same,martial law, bear in mind when theirs a national emergency in any country looting is not uncommon, when i decided to make this map i researched events of martial law in china, and found more than a few examples of soldiers being ordered to kill civilians due to looting etc hence the soldiers as enemies and signs warning citizens, i did my research on how the Chinese army is used to subdue civil unrest, perhaps you should do the same, if Google will allow you.

Pros:

- love the chinese atmosphere
- the witch wearing a cheongsam! GREAT!
- the use of L4D1 survivors is suitable
- free AKs from killing soldiers; hell yeah!
- nice idea of making molotovs by inserting cola bottles into car petrol engines

Cons:

- finale was kind of hard and long
- having soldiers that can shoot you? really?!

Conclusion:

Neat campaign. However, I think that the soldiers being able to shoot you is rather annoying. Also, the cola bottles idea isn't really such a good one but it's creative because car petrol engines spawn REALLY far from the cola bottles' position and a person would have to carry it all the way to the car. A player could just find their own molotovs instead of taking the risk of being defenseless carrying some cola bottles. Either way, still average.
