Very creative and carefully made maps, great for exploration and somewhat relaxed atmospheric playing. Enjoyed this, will come for part 2 if I don't forget about it.

What problems did you experience? There isn't much that can go wrong if you are able to connect to the ZDaemon's master server so it's unusual to hear you had problems joining.

Alright, a few more things about the cookies system (and hopefully the lasts).
10 seconds after joining a map during normal and pain rotation, a message like this will appear:



1. A set amount of cookies (50 for now) will be given every map, no matter the number of monsters, rotation, etc. We think it's a better balanced way for players to get their hands on some cookies, the script will also inform of total HP monsters have in the current map (in that case 9550; so 9550 / 50 cookies = 191 dmg to get a cookie in that map in particular).

2. Of course the damage in some maps could be so low that a high level of spam could be logged, so the cookies will only be written when a player dies or disconnects. (This also eases my task when recovering the counts from the logs =P)

3. There is some kind of bug related to the cookies being lost at some point (the dummy item we use to keep track of them simply gets deleted), we are trying to track this. Patience!

4. If we do some maths the number of total cookies in a session would be: 50 cookies x 16 maps x 2 rotations = 1600 cookies to share between all players. This does not consider maps failed/restarts but at least is a number for me to get an item list and their prices.

I'll try to add more juicy stuff when I give a serious thinking session about it:

+ A BFG -> 300 Cookies.
+ Invulnerability sphere -> 400 Cookies.
+ Half damage received (only effective for a map) -> 400 Cookies.
+ Instant weapon switching (only effective for a map) -> 500 Cookies.
+ Move at twice speed (only effective for a map, and god may aid you) -> 250 Cookies.
