Map Making Notes
Courtney's idea to give the aliens more time to construct Mt. Vesuvius' inner workings ended up being a blessing in disguise (as much as I feared any *more* time spent map making - which means much more time spent testing - possibly delaying Tempus Irae's release. I was Hellbent trying to actually release the scenario *before* the posted release date). My favorite part about this level doesn't involve polygons or textures - but the chapter screen "Hostile". To further delay the action, James and I once again joined forces to create the image. The sounds associated with image are most unusual: bubbling water, a dry cleaners press, and fried eggs.
(Level name taken from the television show Emergency Squad 51 - I recall them calling this out after getting the call for the big 3 alarm blaze)
