Titled Dry Dock, this new map is focused around a M-Class starfreighter birthed in dry-dock facility that has become the site of an Alien infestation.

    Good ol' 'Planet Avp'...  Them's woz the days.  Them's days is long gone.  *sigh* 

    No matter.  'AvP2' will never die! 

    What's the count on this map now.  How many times has it been downloaded?   If it's hit triple figures, I'll be happy with that!   ;D

    Not at the moment, no. 

    Mind you, I am toying with the idea of transforming Dry Dock into a single player map.  Not only does re-purposing an already extant map to this end cut down development time, but the map itself is large enough to accommodate a proper SP experience. 

    Right now, however, I have other Projects on my plate that need attention.  Maybe later.  Mind you, there are other Authors currently engaged in making their own SP 'AvP2' Projects.  There's definitely still more to look forward to.

    Thanks for posting this as News.  Greatly appreciated  ;)

    One of my motives for making this map for a game that is 15 years old, is to express my disdain at the lack of modability in 'our' games during the past years. 'AvP 2010', 'A:CM' and 'ALIEN: Isolation' all would have been ideal candidates for modern full blown modding.  But no.  SEGA decided we would be locked out of generating any custom made fan content for those titles.   Especially 'A:CM' as it used Unreal Engine 3, a game design environment thousands of people are familar with. 

    So, for fans like myself - and other creative individuals within this Community, we have to resort either to working on unlicenced content or be satisfied with modding a game that is almost old enough to drink alcohol legally. 

    Of course there are wider implications here, too.  If there are people still around who are interested in modding such an old game as 'AvP2', then it's simply never too late for SEGA to release mod tools/SDK for any of their more recent titles. 

    If at any point SEGA were to release mod tools for either of their recently released games, you know they will be pounced upon with enthusiasm.  There will be mods released within a week.  You know those mods will continue to be delivered by enthusiasts like myself and others for a good decade.   They'll increase in quality and number. 

    'AvP2' has proven that modders want to embrace such tools.  The fans want to see such content.  Is it not in the interest for publishers to provide what their market desires?  Why is the math so hard?  Fear of assets leaking may be one reason.  More than likely, though, not understanding their market is the cause.

    I started modding this game when it was released in 2001.  It is now 2016.  I've released dozens of items of content, especially prior to  2010.  Will I continue to make mods for this game in the future?

    Well, if the next 'ALIEN' game lacks modding support, presumably so.  So will others.  This map is intended as a celebration of this Community's love for the game and to the modders who've kept it alive.  It's also intended as a plea for SEGA or other publishers taking on the licence to give the creative element of this Community some consideration in their next title.  There's no stopping the creativity this Community is capable of.  It just makes sense for the publisher to embrace it.

    Thank you for reading.  Thank you for downloading.  Thank you for being such an amazing Community!  ;D

    We are long over due a new Avp for the Ps4. It would be so sick and badass to get a New AVP Game for the Ps4 that is scary and has online! Online multiplayer maps... 1) The Predators Preserve Planet 2) The Pyramid from Avp 1 but actually done movie accurate this time being much darker for Infestation! 3) Alien 3 Map! 4) New Jungle Map from Pred 1. The possibilities are endless and the replayable factor will always be there! There are still people playing Avp 2010 including me! We just need a new game already. These games take along time to make and to think that a new game would of already been out by now. A new Avp game with Occulus Rift/ VR set would be sick!!!!!!!! If not a New Avp, I would love to see Predator Concrete Jungle 2!!! The ending was left open for a sequel. one or the other would love to have.
