Facility is one of the most popular levels from Goldeneye 007. This re-envisioned Facility is true to the original, with a few gameplay changes. Subtle variations in texture and lighting, as well as numerous small details, give depth to this map, while the omnipresence of metal and concrete tie it together.
Facility was originally being made by a previous GE:S Dev member that went by the alias Baddog. After having some troubles with the level, he gave it up, and fourtecks took the reins and started from scratch. Right from the start, Facility was envisioned as the run-down Russian chemical facility in the movie, instead of the clean tiled wall version in the original game. The texturing of this level has changed a lot in favor of better quality as fourtecks's texture creation improved. After some consideration some game texture elements from the N64 version made its way back into parts of the level, but with an upgraded twist to them. This change of heart is considered to bring back a bit of nostalgia, something that is very welcomed.
Originally all wall corners in the level were going to be rounded off in some sort of fashion. The effect was considered not to be the right look for the map and the walls have been squared out again, except for a slight few.
The Beta 1 version of Facility featured an underground passage that connected various sections of the map.
In the original game Facility was the second mission in the story. After bungee jumping off the Byelomorye Dam, Bond infiltrates the chemical weapons facility via the ventilation ducts above the bathrooms. He must make his way through the facility to the bottling room at the far end where his main objective is to rendezvous with 006 and destroy the bottling tanks.
In this front portion of the facility, no designated objectives were required to be completed, although on Secret Agent and 00 Agent difficulties Dr. Doak could be found in either of the large rooms with gas tanks to get the door decoder.
In the film Facility is a Soviet chemical weapons plant located at the foot of a dam in the remote mountains of Arkangel. After bungee jumping off the dam and cutting open an access panel, Bond infiltrates the facility through the ventilation ducts above the bathrooms. He incapacitates a guard in the toilet below and proceeds out of the bathrooms, down the stairs, and into the adjacent storage room where he meets 006. They then lift an access grate out of the floor through which they proceed to the Backzone where their mission is to destroy the entire chemical weapon facility by placing explosives on the chemical bottling tanks.
