Thinking about it, it should be trivial to accomplish through editing the USER.CON file (though there wouldn't be any in-game explanation for the change of setting)

Of course the maps in IM were edited so they can be linked together.

I'm still confused by the plans, how will "Crisis in Columbia" appear in the final game? Some said it's levels will be separated and will be added to new zones or whatever. IMHO it looks a good, compact mission on its own.

Oh neat, I was under the impression that Crisis in Columbia was made specifically for the preview campaign, but that's cool we'll get to play through them again in a way in the final game. Dope!

TBH I also had the impression that the Preview Campaign features completely unique content, probably based on what TerminX said:

The demo is more like Half-Life: Uplink, but yeah, the content is more or less unique from the full version. At the very least it's assembled completely differently.

Although looking at this now, it makes sense as referring to edited levels from the full game reassembled in a different order.

However on a related note, I vaguely remember someone from the team mentioning plans for a demo that would be different from the preview campaign, or am I making things up here?

Its been confusing yeah. Probably still is, even internally. But all I know is that I'm using my own portions of the preview for my full game parts, definitely. There's a high chance others will do so too.

We're not planning any kind of demo beyond what full game purchasers have received as the Preview Campaign. In the age of Steam's instant purchases, downloads, and refunds, the Shareware Model is fully obsolete.

That's somewhat of a pity, but come to think of it, I guess my initial hopes of a unique episode in the vein of ROTT or HL: Uplink were highly unrealistic in the first place, considering the amount of effort put into every location — my only excuse is that I wasn't fully aware of the scope of the levels when asking that question back then :)

On a related note though, can you tell how much Ion Maiden's levels change during their development? I mean, once a level is in a more or less finished state, do major changes occur, or is it mostly tweaking? In other words, has it happened that a level started as one thing but then evolved into something else altogether? (Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm completely unfamiliar with how level design goes for FPS games.)

And on an unrelated note, I keep forgetting to ask who that officer (?) in spectacles is whose portrait can be found in the GDF HQ?

I bet there’ll be some interest in some kind of “the making of Ion Maiden” documentary.

If it ever comes to that, we have a lot of material dating back to 2015. :)

Very nice. I'm looking forward to playing through some large outdoor city areas.

I have a feeling the arena at the end of the preview is part of a bigger playable level. If you clip outside the playable area, there's an end-of-level trigger near the tunnel thing.

That's the bad guy in Bombshell, Heskell or something. Several elements of the game are a pretty blatant rip off of the Duke Universe, such as the GDF instead of EDF etc, owing to the game literally starting off as a Duke game before the law suit. The Doctor Proton vibe is certainly intentional.

Will there be a Lame Maiden released at the anniversary of the game's final release? :P

Will there be a dedicated multiplayer server, it will it be only through steam?


Also a request to create a branch of this forum dedicated specifically to Ion Maiden (with someone generously posting direct downloads for the maps in the steam workshop that those of us who purchased through 3DRealm can't access).

We haven't decided on anything about multiplayer yet.

Maybe. Btw, the production title of the game was Project Washington.

I love a strong female protagonist, big Buffy fan, but just really that sentence reminded me of one of the best Manowar songs. Woman... be my slave! "Pleasure Slave" by Manowar, some Conan style stuff, had Orson Welles on a couple tracks so you know they're classy. Not the intent of the post, but, Manowar and Iron Maiden have probably been on the same metal fest somewhere, so it's all connected.



(Don't click on this at work etc, has moaning at the beginning. It's a powerful piece. The definitive sex slave song quite frankly.)

As someone who has not played Ion Maiden and has only seen video footage of it, the game does look like it's lacking in humor, though I'm sure that'll be fixed later on.

Reevaluate your judgment when you play the game.

I forgot to add that it was a preliminary judgment, so it definitely won't be my final judgment of Ion Maiden. Speaking of humor, are there going to be spoofs/references of the other build engine games in Ion Maiden?

Manowar is one of the greatest metal bands ever, but Pleasure Slave is just pathetic. Both musically and lyrically.

Policemen are porcine. Or vice versa. :rolleyes:

I will, when it's fully done!

Question: When IM's development is done and it's released in its entirety, will Eduke32 support soon follow?
