Those are a heck of a lot of ideas! But since I bought Retrovirus, I'm game for a bunch of them! I've been a decent fan for a good time. If I might ask, I would suggest maps that are special made for Coop play. That's one of my favorite ways to go. Also, thumbs up on the Descent style map! The only thing I thought it missed was secondary weapons from the descent series, but even without, this game's been awesome!

We need a mod where you're travelling through the human body killing bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and parasites. It's so obvious. That's what I'm going to get started on anyway. Once I get to grips with the editor.

I'd love to see (or someday make) a remake of the first level of Descent, or even the first few levels, but with Retrovirus' engine.
Is it possible to make an Automap mod?
