    The Eon team has released a very early version of their mod, simply for bug-hunting and testing. The mod will obviously contain bugs and gameplay issues, however these will be resolved before the mainstream release. If you've been dying to play this mod, now is your chance.
    You can grab the mod from this page.

    This is apparently an art release,I couldn't add bots to play against.So I'll just comment on the looks.
    Anyway it's very nice!.One of the most polished maps I've seen.
    Although the map could gain a lot of atmosphere with a better lighting (where are the shadows?)
    Also I'm not sure the stamina thing is good idea for FPS, most of the time it's more of an annoyance.
    Also what type of gameplay will it be? deathmatch?
    I think you guys need a good coder/idea man to inject good gameplay to your awesome graphics

    I think they didn't add shadows so people with low spec (such as myself) computers could have a chance to run the mod

    No NeoNight, they don't give a **** about people like you ;) Otherwise they would have kept the polycount lower.

    I believe the lightmaps for the static meshes aren't done, They are in the texture packages, but not enough to cover all the level, so I believe its a work in progress.

    There's no such thing as a "pre alpha". Anything that leaves the coder's computer is at least "alpha".

    its really neat how you can see your own body when you look down, and the level looks purdy.

    im amazed that you didnt realise those weapons wouldnt fit through the fortress doors :)

    its pre-alpha because it works less then an alpha should, from what I've gotten, this release is pretty much purely art test and seeing if people can run it, examples like not being able to get past the menus or invisible terrain are exactly what the point is. Though, you'd think with their vast talent, they could setup a beta tester team, instead of releasing such a broken game. Just remember that its not suppost to work yet.

    it says MSUC-RC4 or something like that for the map name. Did you enter this into the mod contest?
