27th Apr 2010, 06:43 PM
Alright so this is the outstanding result of 200 hours of work and my 11th map. Let me know what you all think. A true mapper thrives on feedback.

This sentence is totally 100% un-needed, but the download link is below along with the oh so appealing screenshots.
Here. I'll even Show you where...

Download Link To FileFront:

unzip to find these files...
dm-arachi-final.ut2 (goes into your Maps folder)
massacre.usx (goes into your Static Meshes folder)
...And you're set to kill.

The oh so appealing screenshots of DM-Arachi-Final:

screenshots look good and I'll try and check this map out soon. I see you posted at Unrealplayground and that's a good thing because as you can see not many things going on at this Insite forum. You may try posting at the Epic forums also.:)

Forgot one thing: even though the .ut2 kinda tipped me off that the map was for UT2004, any place else you post a thread about this map that doesn't have a specific section for UT2004 (like here) you might want to indicate it is for UT2004 somewhere (I would do it in the title of the thread). If I don't review the map this weekend, then definitely sometime next week.:)

okay so i spent about 12 hours making realistic lighting for it. (along with more detail.) haha. here's the link to DM-Arachi-Final-Relit.


And here are some screenshots.
I did the best i could with these screenshots. Some areas when i would screenshot them wouldnt show how it is ingame... so i had to be very selective. But here are a few.

I thought I'd post the link to the final pro version here also:

Seriously, I do intend to review this and other UT2004 maps soon....really.:)
(then I'll go back and finish the UT3 ones)

Just in case you check back here, I have 8 UT2004 maps to check out and your maps are number 6 and 8.:)

First, seriously though, make sure you put the link to the latest map version in the initial thread post. Second, WTF, a lot of stuff going on in this map one play through does not allow me to figure everything out. This one looks good and I like the pools in the middle of ramps (don't see this very often), as well as the translucent ledge and wall. On top I liked the slow fires, lights and spiked spires as well as the ceiling textures. On the bottom I liked the the various pool floor designs and dripping water. Good gameplay with the bots kicking my a$$ on default settings especially when they have Vrykolalas, Garrett and SkaarjQueen in the same match. The weapon placement looks good, but I didn't like trying to get the rocket launcher with it just out of reach but I eventually figured that one out. This might be one of those maps that people either love or hate; I love it so far.:)
