Map DescriptionTorlanights is an atmospheric nighttime battle under a blanket of stars - an in-the-dark Onslaught against foes passing in and out of floodlights, amongst crickets and bushes, hiding and ambushing from what once was the familiar daytime Torlan. Even for those watching on the moons above, it's a dark night...

I get a CRC error when i try to unpack the package (What can I do to play this level?) but screen looks fantastic.. it may be a level of someone else but if you make a good other day time of it... could be nice ;)

I think it is a great re make :D but can't rate it yet..

I don't want to rate this. Half of me is telling me its a no good port, the other half is telling me you've done something really nice to this.

I'm hoping you arent gonna get flamed, theres some seriously nice ambience in this map and I appreciate what you've done. It makes a nice change :)

Great work! The ambient sounds is a nice touch albeit a bit too excessive.

Well I haven't played it yet, but I have already ganked the skybox textures.... lol Will sit down for a proper time with it a bit later tonight and rate it then. Can I use those? I'll give you a credit of course. Not like I copy/pasted your skybox, just borrowed the textures.... Well I'm gonna hop on the bandwagon here and say great job in this "remake." It's a great map to begin with and the most important thing is, you didn't F anything up. In fact it is a great job with a really impressive skybox. I like the bio-luminescence that the pitcher plants give off, and that you didn't go around trying to change too many things on a map that IMHO is one of the best for ONS. In fact, it's like the "old" days of playing the demo online where I would sit for four hours straight playing from day to night only now the map can change with me. I think it brings just the shot in the arm this map needed. After being beaten to death during the demo server period, when the retail version of the game was released, people started groaning when this map came on, and many servers took the original out of rotation for a while. Which I can understand, but not really agree with. Good job Dario, and thx for letting me use the skybox textures. :D I can't give a nine or a ten for a remake though... :p but for those of you who love Torlan, you shouldn't be disappointed with this.

conversation? lol ,-)

anyways,, there's no way I can rate this map with a number... that because it's a really nice conversion, but it ain't your map... so uhm... yeah...

This thing is dark...really freakin' dark. Like "is that a player or a bush?"-dark. The lighting is really the only thing you'll notice changed here. The yellow/orange lights at the bases appear to be left alone which isn't very easy on the eyes. The map's changed sky suggests subtlty so the lighting should follow as such so I would consider tuning down all the lighting.
As for the sounds, there was supposed to be alot changed here but I didn't notice anything more than that annoying looped grasshopper chirp and the chitter by the tower. Nothing groundbreaking.
Another hinderance is that the fog doesn't blend well with the selected skybox.
Note that I'm grading this only on the changes.

This is a beautiful map. Game play is only slightly different from ONS-Torlan, due to reduced visibility. A little harder to see raptors, a little harder to see what's below when you're in a raptor. Where it stands out is in the lighting and "atmosphere". Reminds me of a summer night, out for a stroll. A very violent stroll.

some nice touches around, tho skybox was rather boring, when you leave the base it really feels like your running away from your save haven in to the dark yet warm summernight :)
really weird to see the map like this tho
whats been done in this map might one day be considered normal and happen in real time, in every map, imagine the possibilties :)

Absolutely nothing changed in terms of the layout of the map, so I'm not going to bother applying a rating. The visual change is absolutely gorgeous, and certainly earns a place on my maplist. The only other comment I can think of is that Raptors are now practically invisible, between the fog and the dark sky. Whether that's good or bad I don't particularly care to judge.

I liked it a lot.
it may be just a port, but its a very well done one, and I would not groan if it turned up in a playlist on a server. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery.

It's a nice idea but nothing special.

Perfect, I always wanted to change the ugly orange sky to a cool looking dark one. nicely done and i love the creepy alien/satelite communication voices on the tower, reminds me of the movie contact =D

I find this map is too dark. I like dark maps, but this is too dark. You can't see the raptors which I don't like. The skybox is awsome and the sound(cricket) is repetative. Noo fog makes this map better then the original, I like that you can see far. I think that Pheonix Paridise is a better conversion. Most people flamed the guy who did it but it gets played an aweful lot on the servers. i still dont know why this "auther" didn't get flamed. Didn't he do the exact same thing as the PP guy? Oh well, a 6 for the effort required to make a 2meg map into a 13meg one.

Given that it's a conversion I wasn't expacting too much from this. That said I like dark(er) maps but not necessarily dark ones. This map however I like and I like a lot :) Also Hourences comments about future realtime day and night maps has me drooling :D

I started to like Torlan after this 'conversion':), the map itself isn't really edited, only the atmosphere, that's good, cuz not many people like added junk in a existing map, the sounds are good, the moon, totally rulez, Torlan was always a map that got me go hurry up and get nodes, now it's so peaceful and quite, that made me like THIS Torlan, 7.0 cuz it's not really your map but it is in a other way (confusing myself :P), good job ;)

I love any Torlan maps and this is a good one. I also do not understand Why everyone said that Torlan Phoenixpar was a 0?! it's a good map but it's just a bit too unbannded with the ion tanks and levs.if I could Comment on Phoenix par I would give it a 8 or at less 7 or 6.
