Ifaf, Tehlag, Seraphim, sorry but I dont think Ifaf remembered that I told him that he could finish the last bit of tweaking on the weapons and that he could be the one to release Maridia, since it's been about 2 years since I sent him the finalized map.

Anyway, I contacted Seraphim a few years ago about porting Maridia over to xbox. In the end I ended up cleaning up Samus's model, making lod's for it, optimizing the fp models, optimizing textures, redoing the hud a bit, making the hud able to be toggled on/off with the flashlight(for those of you who think it gets in the way), optimizing, unwrapping, texturing, and portalling the level itself(I also added nice little sandfalls as a nod to the sandy parts of Maridia and some light bgm), making the super missile a grenade, and replacing all the scenery around the map.

There are still some little bugs here and there, but I dont have time to fix them. Here's the ones I know of:

Missile indicator is in the wrong spot on some resolutions
Water splashing sfx/vfx appear when walking on rock
Bullet decals appear on the water holes in the top center of the map

Here's a link to a folder containing renders and ingame pics of the level. The folder titled "Original Maridia" is for comparison to how it was before I worked on it.

And here's a link to the map file itself.

Credit for everything I didn't mention goes to Seraphim, Tehlag, Ifafudafi, and whoever else was in the Metroid Online team. Here's the original Halomaps download location with more credit information.

If you guys want the tags then just rip them. I'm not uploading them. Have fun

EDIT:Yeah, apparently I need to proofread my thread titles before I hit post.....

I hear from some little birdies that something more significant relating to Metroid Online is coming this year. Unrelated to Moses' stuff, yet Something forked from the same source after Seraphim dropped the project a few years back.

A complete revamp one might say...

Have an old shader test from a 9 months or so ago - RIGHT CLICK>VIEW IMAGE for best quality

Amazing! Thank you! I thought the whole Metroid Online scene was completely dead! :)
