    Since Sorrento v5 is more than 7 years old, it is in need of some fixes.
    I updated the Sorrento-Geometry to 2015 mapper level, fixed a lot of texture mistakes/nukes glitches and changed some technical things.
    Also the feared "Teamkiller Door"or the "Block Barrels" got fixed.

    ---->
    A full list of changes and a few screenshots are at the bottom

    --- THERE ARE NO BIG GAMEPLAY OR GRAPHICS CHANGES ---


    New Spring/well:


    Oldschool/Experienced Players opinion needed

    I readded that spring... Let me know if you like that change or not.
    It isn´t in the current v5 because of FPS problems, a lot players had, 7 years ago. That´s not a problem anymore.

    Left one is Gargantua´s version

    Updated "black Tunnel House"

    • Fixed water textures in Sorrento City --> Screenshots

    • Fixed console errors about chimneys
    • Fixed tons of texture mistakes
    • Fixed some nuke glitches
    • Secret boat math_counter removed
    • Remade the sea tower columns --> Screenshots
    • added a sun
    • added "v4 spring" --> Screenshots
    • readded Gargantua logo/spray
    • more barrels again, but static ones --> Screenshots

    Nice one, of course only until it's added as a plus map and not replace the original.

    This changes are fixes which don´t influence the gameplay directly. Most of the changes are pure technical nature...
    So it is planned as a replacement for current Sorrento V5.
    This updated v5 will be a bit more like real Oldschool Sorrento again. Just with more fixes and less annoying things.(block barrels)
    To re-add Gargantua´s spring was just a side idea. The community/admins should decide, if the spring should be re-added or not.

    Geeez.... I think you just crossed a line with it. I mean of course you are fixing maps which are broken, and that's awesome what you done with some maps. But this is ain't right. You made another sorrento, okay, people can still play the old version, everybody happy. But to replace it , man you want too much. I hope admins won't replace the original one, because it's really a working map. It's doing well since a really long time ago, then why change it ? Nonsense.

    Like he said, he didn't change much. As far as I can see this is still the exact same map, except for the added well at the start (that got removed by gargantua due to FPS issues).
    I don't see any issue with it since he didn't change that much, only some bugfixes etc. etc...

    That doesn't matter bird. Don't forget that i3d is the last , and only server which still use oldschool settings ( which is awesome ) Even the shitty other servers, where there are still a few old school maps, use the original ones and not these so called " fixed " ones................

    When Nymphali fixed nuke glitches on v5, everyone was also fine with it. If you like oldschool that much, you should be happy about that version. With readded barrels and probably the old spring, it´s more oldschool than before...(more like Sorrento v3, v4 again)
    The v5 currently on the server, got it´s barrels removed, Seadoor is not working, water nuke has glitches,water is bugged and bhop glitches are everywhere.
    Such things are not oldschool. They are just annoying and need to be fixed.

    Well they were fine with it, because there was no version change, it was a modified v5, so they didnt even notice ;)

    Anyway Muesli, you are doing great work, right now only one person is not happy with this modification (which is the same person who blammed you the first time you modified the map).

    I think you two did great work. Just ignore tabraz over here, nothing but rants, even after you clearly told him a million times that the changes are graphical.

    That's a good list of fixes on the map, and I know that because of experience from earlier that it's a lot of work. Will there be an opportunity to test out the map before being added to the server?

    And also, wouldn't it just be better to remove the "sea door" altogether? I think it would just make more sense if it wasn't there (considering people haven't been able to use the closing lever for the last three years).

    There was a first test session on #1 today. About 50 players were playing. They didn´t use the new spring. Will probably take some time :p I don´t know if we will test it again, before it will replace the old v5.

    The list isn´t even complete; forgot things like bhop glitch fixes , removed secret boat fences or fixing ugly shadows/light bugs.

    I tried a lot about the teamkiller door.

    - Logic functions to control the door
    - no dmg on closing the door and tp the players who get stuck in it.

    Nothing brought good results:(
    If you got some nice ideas about the door, let me know them.

    I personally think it looks stupid to remove the door completely. For my case, the door brings oldschool memories back.:)

    Door in v5 still work. But not on i3d cause they made it useless. Just keep it, and set the Damage to 0, so people can block it, dont get stuck and dont die.

    I think all the changes are for the good without altering any gameplay, which was my main concern with the remake.
