I just wanted to let you know that [b]Lobber[/b] is the author of the level [u]Clash 500[/u] as listed on the [url=http://descent2.de/spotlight1.html]spotlight pages[/url].

Currently it says "(unknown author)".

You can verify this by opening the .zip file named [url=http://descent2.de/missions/spotlight/clash500.zip]Clash500.zip[/url].
In that file it states that [b]Eric Myres AKA Lobber[/b] created the level.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.

Here is the full text included with that zip:

Clash! A name that engenders battle, and Titans, the great
and powerful beings that where nearly undefeatable by mankind. Now
you have the chance to become "Nigh-Invulnerable!" But watch out!
your Nigh-Invulnerableness isn't unlimited! Enough mega missiles
stuffed down your throat will give you indigestion soon enough!
In this level, all starting points are behind one way walls,
that have negative value shield depletion triggers, negative 900 to
be specific... meaning you start out with FIVE HUNDRED SHIELDS!!!
That is where the mega missiles come in handy!
To make the battles run faster, I kept this level SMALL.
Unfortunetaly, the cool colonnade effect took up alot of cubage...
so some computers will lag abit, sorry. This has been my fastest
level created so far, only 8 hours of work, in about two days.
I hope you enjoy this different kind of level... i did, making it!

This revision reduced the original 1000 shield boost to 500.

However, I have noticed that occasionally you get twice the boost that
was intended... well, consider it the luck of the draw... 3 out of 4
times the triggers work properly.
Also, I removed 2 of the 3 cloaks, to be replaced by three more
mega missiles. I tried to use doors in the starting points, but the
problem of the triggers not working every time you flew thru them
convinced me otherwise.

    Sorry about all the BBCode. I was trying to make it more readable.

    Fixed.

    Just telling me "hey, the spotlight entry says 'unknown author' - I built the level" would have been good enough. If you tell me you built it, I believe it. ;) "Fails to Credit Lobber" when you are talking about yourself sounds a bit ... awkward. :P
