Coffee Break (dm14) is pretty much universally panned as the worst of Red Faction's default DM maps. I agree - Coffee Break is awful. That said, call me crazy, but for some reason I've always liked it.

Barista's Redemption is an overhaul of Coffee Break which fixes the specific issues I had with the map while retaining the "look and feel" of the original. I won't promise this is the best map out there - it's definitely not. I will however promise that it'll play better than the original. I know I'm not doing the best job of selling the map, but hey - you'll form your own conclusions when you play it anyway.

Hope you enjoy!

Here's a full listing of the notable changes between Coffee Break and Barista's Redemption:
- Added two additional upper sections with corresponding spiral hallways
- Added 4 doorways in/out of main area
- Added secret upper area (for rail)
- Threw out old item and respawn point layout and remade from scratch, adding many more spawn points and plenty of weapons, ammo, health, and armour
- Totally revamped approach to geo. Everything is destructible aside from the floor on the bottom level and in the spiral hallways
- Fixed numerous issues where you could sit behind one-way detail geometry and mow down enemies
- Fixed ugly overbright lighting
- Fixed numerous texture warping issues
- Fixed numerous portaling issues
- Fixed minor texture alignment issues
- Reduced level hardness to 50
- Fixed music (you can mute it in audio settings if you don't want it)
- Added custom high poly posh admin light meshes
- Removed some cutscene cameras
- Applied lighting trick

I actually really enjoy the changes that were made to this, I think they can have a positive impact on the gameplay. Adding the doorways and the extra sniper's nests opens the map up so much more. The changes in the lighting, the decals and the music adds a much needed ambiance to the map. As for the changes with the geo, while it's a pity that I can't burrow under the floor and troll people with rail anymore, I do still like the changes. It feels like geo is placed where it's necessary.

Very small changes overall, but a much more cohesive map now.:)

This edit *recaffeinates* a map that was otherwise a bit like the coffee you would get from the coffee machine in the staff room of a cheap funeral home. A bitter cup of sadness and disappointment.

This more like gas station coffee that is surprisingly alright, and even enjoyable, on a cold winter's night.

Makes dm14 playable, but it's still dm14.
