I want this discussion to be dedicated on your thoughts about the maps so far, Acid Sea, and Space, as well as finding info about other maps, and discussing that as well.
Acid Sea (Small- Moon)
Space (Small- Space Station)
Dust (Large- Planet)
Echo (Unknown and Unreleased -Moon)
-Video is Presumed to be Echo. NOT CONFIRMED!
Space and Acid Sea (Large 32 Player Variants Maybe?)
(Video from Single-Player Component - NOT CONFIRMED)
And that's it. Post your info, thoughts, ideas etc.

Good compilation! I hadn't seen anything about the potential Echo map until here so thanks for that.
Looks great so far, especially liking the little patches of dry vegetation. I think it'll be a great map to showcase the fun to be had in the jumpability of the Sidewinders much like Vaporfield Glacier was for the APC's (I always tried to get people to call em thunderbusses, never quite caught on).
Awesome size for 16 player games. Nice touch that you can walk inside the little toll booths on the end of each bridge.
One complaint I have is that while you can land on the shroomy brains out in the sea, they're glitchy and the outer layer phases through you as it sways back and forth. Looks cheap, at least put an invisible platform on top so I don't disappear inside.
Couple small complaints. There's at least one building antenna that you can't shoot through even though there are pretty big transparent gaps.
And, why the heck didn't they make the asteroids all so you could get out and build on them?! Or at least some There are even some right now that have flat spots that you still can't build on. Also getting out of your hawk on one is often glitchy. Little asteroid bases/beam turret jackupperies woulda been awesome. I prefer Acid Sea so far. Looks better and Space seems to more often encourage noobwall collections around the flag.

I agree with you Zebra. And one other things that people may not know, is that if you time it perfectly right, you can actually build a beam turret on the brains in Acid Sea! It may also work with some other building, sniper tower etc, didn't try it out, but its sooo cooll!

Hehe yeah I've seen that! You can plop a shield generator next to the turret on some of them too. Good strategy if the other team has a lot of active pilots.
There's also a couple rock formations out there that you can fit an outpost + a vulture dispenser on. Doesn't really work unless you're playing on a server with a lot of headsets though because people just spawn into the acid.
Sniper tower would be cool, I don't think I've tried setting those down in weird spots yet.
