Originally Part of the CBPM3 Vol 2 Pack
Excavating one of the Necris’ infection tentacles must be pretty mundane work as the workers have taken it upon themselve to battle round one of the dig sites.
6 to10 is about right with 10 players being my prefered amount. The bots managed to navigate easily except on the red base. Theres a jumppad between the tentacle and the flag base. Bots tend to get stuck translocating to the jumppad then hitting the pad and jumping back, repeating the process untill something else distracts them. Didn’t effect the gameplay too much but it was pretty obvious. Bots gave a good fight and defended well
Although more than a conversion of VCTF-TheDig by the same athor, there are more additions to the map and changes to the layout in places. The bases are largly the same metal platforms but the areas surrounding them aren’t. Also the map is horse-shoe in shape with the same metal walkways running around the apex. There’s a new walkway leading off from that with the shield belt on it.
Performance (Hardware) 26/30
Pretty good. Around the 35-40 range. No issues and no alarming drops anywhere.
Eye Candy 22/25
I really like the setting sun and the blurred siloette of anything that crosses in front of it. The Necris tentacles look big and impressive. machinary and metal work dotted around the dusty, rocky ground help the atmosphere as does the smaller severed tetancles.

Final Score 89/100
A good alternartive to VCTF-The Dig. It’s more than just The Dig without the vehicles.
