Remember Halo Catastrophe? This is the final version of the map. The story behind this map was that Halo was hit by a tactical nuke and so the radiation has altered bloodgulch. The map is still very green, but has been improved a lot since the beta in my opinion. The beta version can be found here.
For a list of the modifications see the readme. Also, a little something to note is that this map may exception when it exits. This is not a common occurrence, but may happen if you have a patched bitmaps.map. Just a little warning. Gameplay is fine and unaffected, but there is a small chance of the exception when you exit.
"Halo Catastrophe" / ) /--------|======================== / / <| |======================== ( / \--------|======================== ^(Halo) ^(HAVOK Tactical Nuke) I apologize for the time it took to release this final version, but we have recently started work on an entire capmpaign rebuild, and that's a big, high-priority, time-consuming piece of work. So unfortunately it means the "Good O'l Gulch" and "Halo Catastrophe" Map Packs are gonna be put on hold. Anyways... Mods: Rocket Launcher: High ROF Plasma Chaingun Plasma Cannon/Fuel Rod Gun: Plasma Drill (Work it out for yourself) Sniper Rifle: No contrail, so snipers have it a bit easier Sky Bases: Large docking platforms above each base, with Banshees, for all the "Shee noobs" out there Plasma Grenades: Now a "concentrated explosive device", as one of our modders named it, it only does damage if it sticks, and looks like its on fire, instead of a blue trail. Frag Grenades: Hand Held Nuclear Device (no you don't get to nuke the poor Gulch again, it's a mini-nuke) Bitmaps/Skins: Several skins have been changed. Might be some other stuff, can't remember everything from the beta. Legal: If you're going to alter this in any way, you must contact me first. I don't mind if you put it on CD or e-mail it, but you must send this readme as well! Installation: Back up your original bloodgulch.map file. Then extract this file, and place it in C:/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Halo/MAPS. NOTE: This is the 'usual' location. C: is your hard drive. Credit goes to: Everyone at CartoMod.
