The surface of this uncharted planet is a hostile waste land but delve beneath the ground and you will find a network of stunning crystal caves.

Overview

When starting this map there were 2 things I wanted to change about the way I forge, the first being I should just go with the flow. Too often I try and force something on to my map that ends up falling short. The second thing being that I needed a theme that was refreshing and unique to the community. I hope that forgers believe that I accomplished that goal with this map addition.

Layout

As I mentioned this is an asymmetrical map, only my second to date. The site lines are long but with ample cover, nooks and crannies throughout. The cover flows naturally on the map but I'll get into that more later. There are 2 "towers" on the map that serve as power position but there are other nice high traffic hallways and elbows that you can pitch a tent in and go on some good sprees. There's 3 "floors" to the map with long ramps great for ground pounding the unsuspecting. Those who love sneaky clambers and basic parkour will be at home on Gypsum because that is the funnest (but not the only) way to traverse the map. Watch your step in some areas!

Aesthetics

Like I said I wanted to do something that I've never seen before so I went for the theme of a vast crystal cave. Everything on this map is 100% natural, so for once my cover objects don't seem clumsy and forced :) I have heard it compared to some superman-esk concepts and even some skyrim caves from those who helped me test it, but actually my main inspiration came from a picture of a real life Gypsum cave in Mexico that I had seen on the Internet.

Weapons

Did a lot of tinkering with this element and of course still subject to change but I think the current version supports these weapons well. The weapons are as follows:

Rocket launcher (standard)
Overshield
DMR
Sentinel beam
Hydra
Shotgun
Suppressor
SMG (Silencer)
Boltshot
2 BRS
4 frags
3 splinter nades
2 plasma nades

I'm eager to hear any feedback and I hope you enjoy. Special thanks to iForge for creative ideas and play testing and also duke of murl and ascend hyperion lobbies for helping play testing also
