This is an extensively modified version of the Monolith built Multiplayer map, A Lesser Fate - which ships with Aliens vs Predator 2 - redeveloped to bring it up to Single Player Skirmish mode. As the original map is made for Multiplayer purposes only, playing it on your own in Single Player is a pretty unexciting affair.
This map changes all of that...
A Loner's Fate Version 1.0 -------------------------- A raw uncompiled sample file of A Lesser Fate is included as part of the Official AvP2 Tools. For the purpose of this exercise, A Loners Fate, the map sample was completely gutted, leaving only the basic brush layout as a base to work from. Extensive retexturing then took place; modifications to some of the architecture to give it better connectivity and new lighting to create a darker, moodier and more dramatic atmosphere are some of the altered features of A Loner's Fate. Finally, spawn points and volumes for Alien AI have been added to give a fast Single Player Skirmish experience. This time, Buddy Boy, you're on your own..!
