Nagus has provided two tech demo maps to get you started with the 1.3 Patch. See all the new features in action, and see how to add them to your own maps.
Update Mod Tech Demo Maps by Grand Nagus Quickie Install: - Make sure you have the Update Mod properly installed! These demo maps won't work in regular Holomatch. - Extract this zip file into your 'Star Trek Voyager Elite Force\um13' folder (the Update Mod folder). - Start up Elite Force, load the Update Mod, and you'll see two new maps you can play called 'Update Mod Demo 1' and 'Update Mod Demo 2' Actually, 'tech demo' is too lenient, they should be called 'open them up in Radiant and see how I did it' maps. Neither map is complete, but they both show some of the cool new features available to mappers that they can easily put into their own maps! All of the new effects are done by entities, not scripts, so the mapper can easily drop an effect into their map and then quickly move on to the next feature. To see the maps in action, just put the file 'um13_demo01.pk3' into your Update Mod folder (usually called 'Star Trek Voyager Elite Force\um13'). Start up Holomatch, load the Update Mod from within the 'Mods' menu, start a game and look for the maps 'Update Mod Demo 1' and 'Update Mod Demo 2'. They start looking VERY similar, but once you get into the base you'll see they're quite different! These maps only demonstrate a handful of what the Update Mod is capable of doing, because I wanted you mappers to have fun experimenting with what you DON'T see in these demo maps! PS: Feel free to open the file 'um13_demo01.pk3' and extract the 'map' files. Check them out in Radiant, and you'll see how easy it is to put these cool effects into your own maps. Have fun!
