Yep, I just got my new modem too. I took the opertunity to download some giant file sized levels for MotS (Boam, ToaM 1&2). I suggest you do the same to pass time you spend on the PC. I just recently downloaded one called Rebel Agent and it was a remake of level 1 of DF. New areas were fine by me (the labs and sickbay were super!) but they hacked up the original areas so much, I got lost! Please don't do this to the mod...
I am not saying you would, but new areas have no place in the original areas. A door here or there to access them won't be bad, but a whole new hall connecting to it and crates laying in the hall... Colored lights in areas its not supposed to be... I know you're staying true to the original, so save the JO goodies for new areas.

we are staying fairly true to the original design.
most of the differences will be appearance only, architechtural changes and the such

i think it should be as close to the original as possible, i dont care much for extra rooms etc. easter eggs are cool though, just not another area.

from the Rebel Agent Readme:
Base : New levels from scratch, it took around two-three years to make, in between my other
levels and real life.
I just started playing the map and it is awesome! You can really see how much effort this guy spent on the map (I´m sure it´s very hard to map on the MotS engine)!
I will take a closer look at the architectual details and try to take some good ideas I´ll find to our secbase level.

ITis extremely hard to map for JK/MOTS. so many things can go wrong in JED, the editor
dont think this guy knew you can open DF map files in JED.
woulda saved him 2-3 years! lol

You're saying JED is harder than Radiant?!
I made a MP map of a bar. Of course it was just a square room with some furniture and textures, its farther than I ever got with Radiant. I need to spend more time fiddling around with that thing. Maybe I can make my own maps. I already have a story I wanted to use for MotS...

radiany is MUCH more user friendly.
an error in jed spells disaster. in radiant they are much easier to correct
