UPDATED:

- Added custom mapping support and resources!!!
- Fixed the use of cheats for player equips, anyone can play now!
- Technology Desk panel has names show through the locked icons so you can plan your research better
- Fixed Magnum Equip not working
- Updated custom materials so they are full bright, easier to see
- Renamed Uzi to SMG
- Renamed Desert Eagle to Magnum
- Minor tweaks

========================

Highly experimental map.

The survivors must build forts, construct barricades, and research weaponry to survive. Finish building the rocket and climb aboard to escape the endless horde of zombies!

Also: This is my first source release, its also my first l4d2 map, so twice the stuff that could be criticized upon! but seriously i already know its sucky.

Lol that's funny. :o A bit buggy, but fun.

It took me 1 hour and 19 minutes to complete the map in singleplayer mode.
I've noticed that the equip Desert Eagle function doesn't seem to work and that the game does'nt keep stats.

Oh, and that rocket... yeah...well... meh. If propper works for L4D2, i'd totally make my space shuttle available to you for use in this map instead of that... makeshift rocket. Imagine having a space shuttle as the escape vehicle...

You should continue developing this into a new gamemode type. This is damn fun!

Do you plan on releasing the .vmf?
This map kicked ass. Just amazing. I can't believe this is your first source map let alone L4 D2 map. I hate mapping for this game, its a bitch.

This is a really great idea for l4d2 maps, and I agree with Atom that you should make this into a gamemode. It's very frustrating playing alone, but this map is quite popular and my server eventually fills up with players. The only thing that bothered me was that the rocket was way too simple. Excellent job bringing creativity into this game. I love seeing games taken beyond their original intent.

My favourite L4D2 custom map. My second favourite is Helms Deep.
