So it is time for one more. I've made this map in collaboration with the simply fantastic Da_Guru [nmaps.net]. We both hope you enjoy the map, as we feel we've done our job in providing a suitable setting for a ninja spy to fully employ his subtlety and put his cat-like reflexes to the test.

-------------------------------

LOG#23: MISSION OBJECTIVES

The deviantly nefarious Dr. DOOMA is plotting to overthrow the NUMA counsel of ninjas, and has stocked his corridors to the brim with dangerous robotic technology capable of eradicating every last ninja in the world. These malicious creations include of course the ordinary robotic drone and its loyal companion, mr. Mine; the "Falling Horror" drone; and the newest addition to the weapon's arsenal: Sinister Steve's Ninja Obliteration Thingamabobâ„¢, or S.S.N.O.T, which is a machine powered by an energy-efficient clock that activates and deactivates the laser for neat power-saving. This is the nasty kind of laser that is in the weapon's arsenal of every evil villain with but an ounce of self-respect and the aspirations of world domination.

And this is where you come in. You have to avoid Dr. DOOMA cleverly constructed contraptions, collect his treasure of Spanish dinero, and press the self-destruct button. As self-destruct buttons are usually red, Dr. DOOMA has tried to camouflage the button by painting it with a thick layer of slow-drying, blue paint. After this, you must try to make it to the exit, where you will be able to escape his insidious lair.

Good luck!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! DARE YOU ENTER DR.DOOMA'S INSIDIOUS LAIR?! I ASSURE YOU, YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE DISGUISED LOCATION OF MY SELF-DESTRUCT BUTTON! EVEN IF YOU DO FIND IT, MY LAIR IS INVINCIBLE. MY PURPLE PLASMA PHOTON LASERS WILL CUT YOU TO RIBBONS! MY ROBOTIC GUARDS, SENSOR ACTIVATED SLAMMERS, AND SPIKY HAZARDS WILL MAKE YOU WISH YOU WERE NEVER BORN! WORST OF ALL, YOU CAN PLAY THIS NREALITY MAP WITH VIRTUALLY NO NOTICEABLE DROP IN FRAMERATE!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! DO NOT TRY TO STOP ME. I WILL SUCCEED IN OVERTHROWING THE NUMA NINJA COUNCIL!

The combination of
  • simple but super-effective timed-lasers
    (I'm sure it works with an area trigger.)
  • thorough artworks

  • makes DOOMA a well-rounded nreality map.
    I wanna compliment that no nreality maps around here were as competent as this one.

    Saying that...

    after playing the map a few times, I'm not 100% keen on the FG. That area with the thwump/FG/and drone feels a bit cramped.
    modding n without nreality and modding using nreality take the same kind of effort, one of is not easier than the other. All Nreality does is give us more tools to work with, it's a /good/ thing.

    A choice, too, you can use the new tools or ignore them.

    This

    is actually amazing. Great design, great image, excellent atmosphere and play.

    Nreality is one of the best things that's happened to N. I only wish users were inventive enough to make use of it more.

    Thanks for featuring this, I missed it the first time.

    answer my comment on the virus please...

    awesome review.

    it was about time for you to get featured again! :D
    for featuring this! I'm so glad so many of you liked it - I will use this opportunity to pay homage to the ever-fantastic Da_guru [nmaps.net]. He's kind of the one who made sure I didn't overdo it. :P

    fyi

    i meant it to be all in caps lock. Dr.Dooma is an evil mad scientist. His talking would only be accurately represented in caps lock.

    THANKS ARTISTOLIPTO, NOW IT'S EASIER

    This is awesome!

    It's so well done yet still so clean. The big things are kept simple and the details, while plentiful, don't get in the way. A lot of elements are coming together here yet they all have room to breathe. Nice work, gentlemen!

    Awesome

    I can't praise this map highly enough. The timing is just amazing and the atmosphere you get from the art and the bad-ass lasers makes it immensely fun. Glad you didn't make it any harder. Both the AGD and speedrun routes are really smooth. For a near-perfect map, here's a near-perfect speedrun ;)


    P.S. I didn't actually notice the one-ways playing the level, I just saw them now so maybe there's more room for improvement than I though.

    I have qualms with your assumption that NReality makes things easy.

    It doesn't.

    It gives you the tools, but using them is more diffucult.

    I have about 1 hour right now so I guess it is fine, we can finsih it anyway if it won't be ready.. so yeah.

    but where, how? D:

    Well, why not..

    But it would be my first collab so it would be a new experience for me.

    +Obviously we would have to contact somehow.

    +Omg I just came up with a original idea.. : D

    yeah

    the nreality wiki says you need to add

    ^^^custompath,6,0,speed

    with 3x ^ at the end, but sometimes it is less because '^s' are already used before for some configrations.. I guess that could cause trouble here.

    Oh, I see.

    That is WAY more handy. And only takes up 2 spaces. Thanks a lot for improving my concept by the tenfold. Lol! :D

    note:

    that mine is as a last object is there just in case the paste bin fucks up something.. ._.
    Lolz you guys used 3 drones to make that..

    why not just make it moving?

    http://pastebin.com/Aif7niSK

    and adjust the speed. xD

    !6^396,396,2,1,1,1^270,0,,1^^UD,6,0,1

    moves up and down at speed of 1.
    with these things, and that is why people come to discuss on MY maps and not all the other nreality imagemaps in the past. I really just ask for you to play, criticise and rate my map - and hopefully enjoy it. NReality seems to me as a very subjective matter, but that's great, because I feel that I can more easily express what I have in mind with nReality, especially because of the images. :) I take passion in creating these levels, so I can only hope people absorb that passion and enjoy it in return.
    to be said. :) No reason to discuss this further now.

    That's fine.

    I do not try to make you like nReality and its ways. I like to toy around with the program, and if you don't like the outcome, just don't look at it and don't play it. That's entirely up to you, as it is entirely up to me why and how I make my levels. :)

    blackson

    Very bad example.

    well, launchpads are the most you can edit in normal N, makin gteleports. also, you can make a drone stand still or use limtied NaN glitches.

    however the map you post could not be done in Nreality any better... there is no way to collect switches or gold with other objects and that is the limit of Nreality I guess. It would be epic though.
    but a completely different /game/. Nreality removes the limitations that N has. Despite these limitations, some fantastic concepts can come out of N itself. Check out this map: http://www.nmaps.net/37144 It could be easily created in Nreality with some mod but Sweep had the creativity to figure out how to do it in N with no mod aiding him. There are many other examples of wacky concepts that work well and they lose their worth when Nreality makes everything way too easy.

    blackson

    I'm forced to disagree.
    Although this is a long ways from N, that is what makes this map so spectacular -- that someone can (using NReality) take a map and transform onto a completely different level. I feel almost like it is n-art: N wasn't designed as an art canvas, but because of the innovative ability of Numa's mapmakers, they have expanded N outside of its original purpose. I believe that this is the kind of stuff that Mare and Raigan love to see.
