    A small official update to the Desert storm mappack has just been released on the TBuildT website. The fixed maps are: DS-Arabbay-sl, DS-Baghdad-sl, DS-Baghdad-xl, DS-BlackSand and DS-Dunes. All major bugs should be gone now. The maps have a new name [added FIX suffix] to avoid version mismatches. I encourage server admins to use these fixed maps instead of the old versions. Major props go to Rostam for his help with testing the maps.

    The only download place for now is FilePlanet, but I hope that Infiltration community sites will provide some mirrors soon.

    Will there be any more in the future ? (as the problem already reported in the other thread with DS-Venture)

    Sorry, but there won't be more fixes. The Venture bug is minor and trying to change that map isn't a very good idea [due to the BSP].

    Another mirror

    It won't stay up forever so I don't suggest putting the link on official webpages but if you do it check if it works from time to time. ;)

    BTW Reaper, just so you know, there is a "catapult door" in Hotzone :p. If you try to open it from defender's side, you can get catapulted to a fairly long distance (see screenshot in 2.9 screenies thread). Not a very important bug, but a funny one. Well, I guess that is a bug, isn't it? :)

    /me hugs and kisses Reaper.

    Mid that bug is caused because of something in 2.9 I think. When you open doors the door will either stop when it hits you or push you away. When the doors open in a certain way it means too much energy comes in you meaning you fly away.

    Thank you very much. I wasn't very fond of DS maps in major part because of these bugs. This will definately raise my opinion of those maps.

    I'll look forward to play those new version online.

    What about fixing Arid? There is a BSP hole in one of the walls on the edge of the map. Also, one of the giant oil tanks is floating in the air about 3 ft off the ground.

    Sorry, it's too late now. The thread asking for bug reports was there for nearly a month.

    I see nforcers server uses maps I don't have... Are these maps from the mappack? And if so, where do I download the pack itself?

    Which maps? The DS mappack itself can be downloaded on basically every community site, just check Sentry's download page. The DS fixed mappack can be downloaded from the links stated above and CombatMaps.

    INForcers Euroserver is using maps from the Desert Storm mappack.... not the fixed versions yet though.
    Sad that so many people seem to miss the complete DS mappack.... :-/

    Thanks (belatedly) for fixing these.

    I'm still impressed by the ambition of the DS project, and the size and beauty of the maps which it produced. It's just a shame they came out on the same day as the 2.9 official maps, or they'd get more play time on servers (once fixed :p)...

    Ii dont know where you guys play but on the euro servers where i play there are alot of ds maps. it's mostly due to a small number of maps in rotation that we dont get to see all of them.. YET.
    They will change maps every so often anyway. I'm happy to have all these maps for 2.9.
