|0008484||[DCSS] Upload: Maps and Vaults||minor||have not tried||2014-05-02 02:07||2014-05-22 19:24|
|Status||resolved||Product Branch||0.15 ancient branch|
|Summary||0008484: 5 New Sewers|
A handful of new sewer layouts. Loot and weights may all need tweaking.
Pipe Town: It's a lot like Minmay Treatment, only built around a cracked pipe and with less rats.
Door Sewer: A big baddie style map where the player might be able to find some of the loot before opening the door with Purgy behind it.
Eel Sewer: Another big baddie map, this time with an electric eel. I tried to set up the level so that the player is never more than one or two turns from having a wall between them and the eel, so characters that aren't strong enough for this fight have the best possible chance to run away.
Slime Sewer: There's three jellies in this layout, and a Jiyva alter at the beginning. If the player wants the loot but doesn't want all their stuff corroded they can switch gods for it.
Boggart Sewer: It's a big room with boggarts in it. The random monster list is extremely non-threatening and you fight the boggarts one at a time so even low-level characters should have no problems with this.

I would change
KMONS: . = plant w:20 / fungus w:20 / nothing w:1600
to the significantly more readable
KMONS: . = plant w:1 / fungus w:1 / nothing w:80
I'm not comfortable making any other comments.
I landed _pipe_town and _door_sewer. My opinion of the other maps:
* eel_sewer: The map's configured such that you either wake up the eel and die immediately to a double-zap or that you wake up the eel, get it to submerge, and get free loot. No matter how I configured the walls, it didn't seem possible to preserve the original intent of never being a turn or two from cover while preventing instant death.
* slime_sewer: early Jiyva altars are officially Frowned Upon(tm) these days, and three jellies is more threat than any other sewer vault (and probably any other vault that can place in D at sewer depths). This might be salvageable, but it would require a lot of effort.
* boggart_sewer: an HD 6 almost-certainly-going-to-be-invisible foe is far, far too lethal this early, never mind two of them.
It's a shame about eel sewer, thanks for trying to make it work though.
I don't think slime is worth saving, it really was nothing but the jiyva altar gimmick.
Boggart was a victim of sitting on the vault waaay to long before submitting and not giving everything a final test run, I thought they were still the 2HD, 1shottable wimps they were in 0.13.
