=========

DTA - Changelog

Map 1 - Modified ambient script to be less punishing.
Added a few weapon spawns before/inside the first house
Fixed water graphical issues, should give proper reflections and should go seamlessly into the skybox now.

Map 2 - Modified ambient script to be less punishing.
Fixed medkits all spawning in first half of map.
Ammo in the police car is now perminant.
Added trigger around the police car, when the entire survivor team is around the police car the director switches to 'quiet mode' for 15 seconds or until the gauntlet event is triggered.
Brought back the more makeshift looking barricades to map 2 as models (thanks Inigo), performance in the area should be better.
Map 2 Gauntlet should be more consistant and harder.

Map 3 - Weapon spawn locations should be slightly more varied.
Fixed blocked infected ladder through hole in apartment roof.
Changed long sewer entrance ladder into two shorter ones, to (hopefully) solve some bot navigation issues.
Added rescue closet at the end of the sewers, before the ladder back up to the street.

Map 4 - Common infected should mostly come from behind during the bridge event.
Bridge event should end sooner (shortly after passing the open box car).
Survivors will no longer hang on the unreachable ledge under the bridge.
Some additional optimization, especially in the bridge area.
(unresolved issue)
Grabbing the actual deck of the bridge where you can be rescued isn't very consistant, beware the jocky.
Fixed a few sticky spots/nav mesh problems.

Map 5 - Gauntlet finale.
(issues) Error with skybox, reported so far exclusivly by nvidia card users.
Infinate spawning tanks during the run back from the fuel truck isn't intentional, looking into a fix via scripting.


Future plans:

More survivor dialog.
Versus/Scavenge/Survival modes.
Custom audio for pilot during finale.

Pros:

1. enough supplies to keep you alive on advanced difficulty
2. good design
3. enjoyable

Cons:

1. hordes come every few minutes
2. impossible on expert difficulty with bots
3. sometimes tanks in the beggining of the map

Conclusion:

nice map, although very difficult, the stupid bots can !@#$ your gameplay and make you repeat the map countless of times

@ The_Lone_Wolf
You're obviously having a glitch at your end because while this campaign is set at night, it's nowhere near as dark as to render the flashlight useless. It's not any darker than L4D 1 was.

Pros:

the concept is nice
takes place during the night
House blows up

Cons:

Way.......too dark. It's so dark it renders the flashlight useless.
Sewers are near impossible to navigate, they have so many dead ends it's ridiculous, and the overall darkness making the flashlight non-existent makes it harder yet.

Conclusion:

It's a good design, but some form of direction or hints need to be added to the sewer section, and it should be made to where the flashlight is actually usable.
