Asteroid H5 is the 5th map in the HGC Hangout series. Past maps have taught me lessons and I've capitalized on those lessons when making this new map. I decided to go with an asteroid in an asteroid field this time around because I felt it gave the map some class. Past maps were just random fun and games. This time it's more serious. I had some inspiration from the asteroid Lumiya occupied in space in the Legacy of the Force book series. This map includes many features like secret areas, the mission, and more. It gives you something to do if no one is playing the map with you. I hope everyone enjoys the map and if anyone has questions or need hints/help you may contact me by the email address below.
-There will be a server running this map for quite some time after map release. Go to the website above to find the server tracker.
-Please ask for permission before using any custom made content.
There are several secrets in this map. The well of doom the most obvious and difficult of them. There are also some traps. The mission leads you to most of the secrets but not all.
WARNING: Do not go past the artificial environment emitters without being in a tie-fighter, or you will be exposed to space!
Bugs: Since map allows you to go everywhere, not everything is perfect. I feel the minor problems are acceptable though and feel it's ready to share.
Your TIE-fighter comes out of hyperspace and approaches the asteroid field. The engines moan as they cease operation.
You have been formally invited and given the exact location of the asteroid to complete your mission, but you remain cautious, for the asteroid feels surrounded in the dark side of the force...
You read all available data before landing and reporting to the council area.
Asteroid H5 is located in the Thoridian sector near the Thordor asteroid field. Exact location of the asteroid changes constantly and is unknown at this time. HGC operatives have occupied the region for centuries and H5 is their likely base of operations. It is recommended to stay clear unless formally invited. Asteroid H5 has great abundances of water and several different kinds of rock. Continuous simulated atmospheric conditions have melted the water deposits and formed a landscape of great wonder with creatures attracted to its power and hospitable enclaves.
Infiltrate the asteroid, and do the following:
Find the Sith which taint the asteroid and defeat their leader Desann.
Find the Twin Eye artifacts that will give you powers only one could dream of.
Find RoboMan and sign out a shuttle to transport the artifacts back to Coruscant.
All these must be done or your mission will be incomplete!
Once complete, mission accomplished!
Find all six of them! Then declare yourself awesome!
