Howdy All, Just wondering if anyone has any additional assualt maps that are worth downloading? You just gotta love assault but winning the same maps over again can be a little repetative. I've got the one from the CBP2 but I need more - more I tell you! :feedback:
Hey whats up. I can provide some good Assault map links for you, but first I would like to get an idea of what type of assault you like to play. In my opinion, there are 2 categories of Assault maps: Traditional and Novelty. Traditional Assault maps are like the stock maps that came with the game. There is a linear style map with several objectives to be completed against another team through a combination of holding choke points, standing on switches, blowing up tanks, etc. This is how people envision assault Novelty maps are all over the place and usually come in Assault gametype form, but nevertheless are a lot of fun in the right situation. Most often novelty AS maps are like Hellbender races/Scorpion races or the infamous AS - TempleOfTrials, where you go into different rooms and attempt to pull of movement techniques to gauge your proficiency at UT. Just tell me what kind of AS maps you want me to post, and I'll give you the links. First off though, here is a link to a huge map called AS-Confexia. This map was made by the same group of mappers that made ONS-Torlan. I don't get very good performance on this map, so I've only been able to stomach playing through it once (the average game on this map lasts 35-40 minutes, so you have to make sure and edit the round time limit in your settings before playing), but it was still a lot of fun. Just remember though, Vehicles are key. http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=392482&highlight=asconfexia
And there's me thinking Assault was just Assault! I have to say that I am a sucker for the 'traditional' type games - Choke points are a laugh as it encourages sheer carnage. Convoy and Robot factory are the classic ones that we enjoy - but I'm definately willing to try the 'novelty' type just for a bit of comedy action. The map you suggested looks good (will have to try and the weekend and get back to you) but I only have 300mb broadband and running a large map for half a dozen or less mates could proove a problem. Currently we experience slow loading times on Assault and Onslought where large maps are loading if there is more than 2 players on the dedicated server. But I'll try anything to play more assault :) . You say that you don't get very good performances on the AS-Confexia map, whats the config of your pc? I've got a 2.8 athalon, 1gb ram and a 128mb geforce 4 graphics card (I know needs updating). Cheers for the reply - I await many more assault maps! :smokin:
Alright sweet, I can focus my links better: AS - Germania - This map is based on the opening fight scene from the movie "Gladiator" where Russel Crowe is on the horse...you know what I am talking about. It is made by one of my favorite mappers, who seems to specialize in making stunningly immersive maps based on different environments from memorable movies. This one looks good, you should check it out: http://www.mapraider.com/maps/?fileid=1867 AS - Frigate2004 - Played UT99? Loved Assault in UT99? Here is a remake of the original AS-Frigate from UT99...You know, the one where you have to enter the boat and destroy the generator to the side and then escape with the boat after making it to the control room? If you like choke points (which your post implies) then this map is for you http://unrealtournament2004.filefront.com/file/ASFrigate_2004;25976 You should check out this link: http://ut2004maps.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=3&min=0&orderby=titleA&show=10#cat It's got some good ones that I couldn't find anywhere else like AS - Cirban and AS - Thief (Fixed version, on page two of those maps in the link I just gave you) Now for the fun part: AS - HellbenderRace - Very fun novelty map. You race the hellbenders to the end of the map. One team kills the hellbenders, the other team drives them. Don't run into the explosive barrels! http://www.fasterfiles.com/pafiledb.php?action=file&id=992 AS - Temple of Trials: This is a non-combative map where all players join one team and try and get to the end [color=red]of[/color] the map before the time runs out. In their path are 3 Tombs, Easy, Medium and Hard difficulty, each new tomb opens up when the previous is complete. This map is fun because you have to use movement skills, dodging techniques, and other UT skills to pass through it. You don't kill people here, it is more a challenge of skill. Fun fun Fun: http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=390063&highlight=temple+of+trials Also, I don't know if you are registered at www.unrealplayground.com, (which is free and easy, and more often than not saves my ass because it has fast downloads), but if you are or are willing to sign up to get access to the maps, you should check out AS - A-Maze-ing. Just a giant labyrinth you must complete in order to accomplish the objective. You can look at it here on this link (its the second map in the list): http://www.unrealplayground.com/maps.php?game=ut2k4&type=as I think that's all I got for right now. When I find some more dependable good maps, I'll post some more. But I'll leave you with this: Someone is working on a really cool AS map right now and its almost at the public beta stage...It looks cool. here's a link to the thread discussing it, but I'll post again with a link to the file when it becomes available :D http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=398654&highlight=assault+maps
OK Map overload! I got a chance to look at Confexia last night and what a monster. Didn't have any problems playing a single player game at all - very smooth. Top map with loads of vehicles - its a must for all assault/onslought lovers.
Its gonna take me a while to try all the maps and links but ta muchly for ut2004maps.com. Its my new found friend!
Well me ol' china. Work calls (and so does me boss) so once again 'Thanks for the help' - many a square eyed time to be had in the future again :)
BluJayName: Jumpship Version: 1.0 Compatibility: UT2k4 Description: During the height of the Corporation Wars, Liandri scientists created a prototype warship capable of making its own jumps without the need for a jumpgate. Shortly before going into operation, Izanagi spies learned of this prototype jumpship and launched an operation to steal the warship giving the Izanagi Corporation a significant advantage during the Wars. This scenario recreates the historic battle in which Izanagi forces infiltrated the prototype Liandri jumpship, activated its engines and made a successful jump to Izanagi space. Comments: Final version of jumpship. I'm pretty happy with it. Enjoy! Screenshot: Credits: Me, guys at Epic and DE for a bunch of assets, Some people at people for space pictures. Beta testers who got back to me: acc, Nuclear hazard, Shakuurn, Digital Bacon, Acid Reflux, SabbathCat, King Mango Probably some other people I'm forgetting Homepage: http://www.iit.edu/~pendrya/ Download: http://www.unrealplayground.com/maps.php?mapid=6889
AS-Outback The ONLY level with Kangaroos :D While you're at it check out more maps by Lord Simeon and King Mango... those two are among the elite mappers http://www.unrealplayground.com/download.php?mapid=6812
Hey, i know of this good site for Unreal T1 has got heeps of entrys. .utmr.dk Bazz
This site has alot of Assault Maps:
And unless you like to be frustrated, have a lot of time, or are very good (especially at jumping and stuff), avoid trial maps! They are ok, but they are frustrating.
