Marine's Orbital Level Adapted For The Alien

Hey everyone, I just got AVP's interface engine (Inteng) to work, which means I can start editing and making levels. I made a quick adaptation of the marine's fourth mission, Orbital, for the alien, simply so I can get a feeling for how to work with Inteng. I like to think that this takes place between the Ferarco level and Gateway level, where the alien makes a pit-stop to the Odobenus dropshop, which is well-defended but under siege by predators. The changes to the original marine level consisted mostly of just adding bots, moving the starting location and mission end, as well as removing some triggers. So I'd like to ask you all to try out the level and let me know what you think.

Here's how to add the level to your game. Locate your AVP folder (default location is YourDrive:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Aliens vs. Predator Classic). Once there, open up your avp_rifs folder. Locate the file called Temple.rif and rename it to TempleORIGINAL.rif or something to that effect. Then download my zip (link below); in it is a file called Temple.rif. Copy and paste this into your avp_rifs folder. Now when you select the first Alien mission in-game, you should be playing the new version of Orbital. To return to normal, just rename or delete the new file and retitle your old Temple level back to Temple.rif.

Let me know what you think of this adaptation and if you encounter any bugs/glitches. I should warn you to not load any saved game you have on Temple as the game will probably crash.

The only problem I know of already is that the alien can get stuck trying to get out of the very opening escape pod. To get out, you need to crawl on the walls just enough to trigger the doors to open, and then leap out. If you try to just wall-crawl it, you'll probably get stuck. This is a problem with the original map itself. All I altered were the contents of the map in Inteng; fixing that issue would require editing the map's structure in 3DS Max. Thanks!

And finally, my favorite image of this set.

It exists but it's not public property. I wouldn't upload it without his express permission, and its upload on ModDB is safe. I have a thread on it in the Tutorials section.
