Tell me what you want and I'll use my artistic license.

I want to know the story too so my levels will make sense.

I'll send you a PM with as much of the story as you need (I don't want to spoil any endings ;D)

Also, here's some textures you can start on, textures for the Futuristic War Vessel.  I forgot my home computer is down for the moment, so I can't get the level editor for you quite yet

Walls:

* Base Metal wall w/ wires
* Metal wall w/ window
* Wall with humongeous computer screen
* Metal Door
* Base Wall w/ pipes
* Wall with alarm light
* Two "Filler walls" (Walls to accompany and decorate the base wall): One for the wall with pipes, and one for the wall with wires

Objects:

* Table
* Table w/ Hologram Computer Screen (Meaning a computer screen you could pass your hand through)
* Futuristic Barrel(s)
* Futuristic Boxes
* Pole with Warning Light
* Pick one more ;)

I put these sample levels up for Ben_G and boot to get a general idea of how levels in Elimination look.  Sorry about the black lines through some of the walls

Can't I just make them in paint? The editor is so confusing. I'll include a legend!
I'm not worried about SOPA creating censorship, that will not stand for long. I'm worried that they'll succeed in stopping piracy!

What's confusing?  Is it how to use it, or is it incorrect names of everything?

If it's confusing because of all the incorrect wall/object names, remember that I still need to make you a custom level editor :)  If it's confusing because it's difficult to use, you're welcome to use paint.  Just please include enemies/objects as well

Ben_G and Boot2490, I forgot to tell you that I'm incorporating timed switches into the game, meaning that you can choose to have a switch on for a few seconds before it turns itself off.  This means a player has to race for something.

If you want a timed switch, please round the time you want your switch on to the nearest second, and the maximum time is 12 seconds.

Ben_G and boot2490, you may now add rockets to your levels :D  (Ben_G, in your level editors, use the blue "DO NOT USE" button above the shells, cells and bullets to put rockets in the level.)  Rockets will do 20 damage with a splash radius slightly larger than the shotgun.  A box of rockets will give the player 5 rockets.

Glad to hear that :)  But the levels aren't ready for testing, because I have some bugs to fix and features to add

I think it looks great!  Keep up the good work!  As you probably know, I might have to make some adjustments when we test it for difficulty.

In the future, please don't post screenshots of the level editor.  The .lev and .inc files are all that are needed :)

Ben_G and boot2490, the small health pack now gives 10 health, and the big one gives 25 health.  Ben_G, I will adjust the arboretum level you gave me so that you don't have to correct it yourself.
