The Oscillator

“There is Sly the player, and BEER the mapmaker. Sly consulted BEER on his maps and therefor BEER gave him credit. But AFAIK Sly has never made a map.” -Target

Another amazing WTF map:  That Egyptian themed map where the quad spawns in the cage… no one could find the lever / switch to pull up the cage.  We were all surprised by the sound of natives chanting Indiana Jones-style and the cage raises up and back down. I got trapped in the cage.

The other thing is that my favorite part of The Oscillator map beyond the more obvious floating / flying movement (regular gravity) and unique graphic look was that map’s sound.  I was way beyond “regular stoned” by the end of the night (The Cleaner asked, “Did you eat it or smoke it?” and the correct answer was C all of the above), but I have seriously never heard sounds in a Q2 map like that.  These vibrating tones deepen as you get to the basement where quad is.

After last night I am left with 2 important questions:

Have you ever played The Oscillator?  Have you ever played The Oscillator ON WEED?!?!
