Another new Battlefront I map here from Ty294. This one's story ties together his previous maps; Tatooine: Desert Alliance, and the Europa maps.
The map is based in a system of Hoth caves which are apparently somewhere below an old CIS base on Europa. To be honest, it's kind of bland. All of the tunnels look the same, there's nothing to distinguish one from another. It'd be nice to have some crates or landmarks of some sort to help the player find their way around and to add to visual appeal.
The sides have been given a bit of an overhaul. There's a full list of changes in the readme. I noticed that most of the weapon changes were on the Imperial side, and also that they tended to be overpowering. Faster rifles, better grenades, etc. The Empire seemed to be able to dominate the Rebels with ease. This could be the intention, seeing as the map focuses on the story of an elite legion, but it's not a good idea for gameplay.
Other than the one-sided-ness of the map and the blandness of the tunnels, there's one other thing I'd like to make a note on, and that's the skin for the Rebel soldier. His entire body has been paintbucketed yellow with the exception of his face. My question to the author is this; what on earth were you thinking?
Anyways, you can give this a download if you like. It's a fairly decent map, not counting the problems mentioned earlier.
Unzip and place in addon folder. Story GCW: After destoying the Desert Alliance the Galactic Empire felt the need for an elite strike force, the IGF or Imperial Gamma Force was assembled. It was equipped with a number of weapons based of plans stolen from the Desert Alliance. The first deployment for the IGF was during the bloody Europa Campain in the sublevel caves below the old CIS base located there. The map is entirely indoors. I have made a number of new weapons for this map, here's the list: Advanced Grenade- Sticks to people as well as vehicles. Advanced Grenade launcher- Launches Advanced Grenades. IGF Scatter Gun- A reapeter with an extremely fast rate of fire. Advanced Missile launcher- Improved damage per missile. IGF Cuncussion Rifle- See for yourself! Other weapons: Grapplinghook Commando Pistol Wrist Rocket Post any suggestions on improvements.
