House Of The Rising Sun (2)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 06.01.2014 Introduction: Thank you for downloading my stuff :) This is the second map I completed. Actually I just released this one because it's done =) What I had in mind as I started off, was a sacred structure, somewhere in a rocky, volcanic landscape with hazardous atmosphere. Maybe near a crater, where ancient peoples payed tribute to their gods by tossing prisoners of war down the blistering lava pit. In reward the gods blessed them with supernatural strength and fatal power. Maybe near tihs crater would stand some sort of monastery. And maybe evil things would lurk behind the rocky hills, things you wouldn't dare to face without the blessing of the ancient gods... Since I'm still learning how to build QIIImaps, this is kinda show of learning progress. I wanted to create a consistent skybox-terrain-scenery with interesting and ambitious geometry. Mainly the last part was the hitch. I put most effort in effective hint brushes, but the open layout with all that stuff going on (func_sucks) makes the FPS go somewhat low in places (especially the rocketlauncher area) with r_speeds peaks in the mid 120k's, so don't expect too much. I hope it runs at least fast enough to not annoy somebody. The botsupport was kinda difficult this time. The too-many-faces-error occurred, so I had to build a bot-only-map and merge the files. I'm yet pretty content with the outcome. At least I managed to get them navigate the whole map and pick up every item. Alas there are few spots where the bots tend to get stuck though, so 1vs1 against a bot may become hide and seek. I wasn't able to fix this issue, sorry for that. Hope you enjoy playing this map anyway! Feedback is most welcome! Best regards MBT PS: I'm not quite sure bout the trees... ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ How to install: extract the "mbt_dm2.pk3"-file to your "Quake III Arena/baseq3/"-folder Author: Thomas Wiese aka "Malzbiertrinker" aka "MBT" Mail your feedback to: **email removed** Other maps by author: mbt_dm1 - Sacrificial Rite lvlworld.com/review/id:2187 Map-name: mbt_dm2.bsp Longname: House Of The Rising Sun Map-genre: gothic-ish Map-size: medium Suggested player-spawn: 3-6 Supported game-types: ffa team tourney Bots: biker bones gorre hunter Items: 5 Health 14 25 Health 4 50 Health 1 Armor Shard 9 Haste 1 Heavy Armor 1 Mega Health 1 Personal Teleporter 1 Quad Damage 1 Weapons: BFG 10K 1 Grenade Launcher 1 Lightning Gun 1 Plasma Gun 1 Railgun 1 Rocket Launcher 1 shotgun 1 Ammo: Bullets 2 Cells 1 Grenades 1 Lightning 1 Rockets 1 Shells 1 Slugs 1 Secrets: guess what xP (...there is a BFG with 100 ammo but don't let it go any further...)
