"The Hall Of Giants is now open to the Tournament again after being closed for some time for renovation. Only a few relatively minor modifications have been made to the structure, which has been widely acclaimed due to its uniqueness over other CTF maps. Features of the Hall include its extreme height, its complete low-gravity environment, its intense lighting, its peculiar speed tubes, and its huge variety of tactical approaches to victory.

CTF-Hall Of Giants 2004 By Will "ZedMaestro" Zeal ZedMaestro's 1st Map for UT2003/UT2004 Programs used by me: UnrealEd3 Programs used by map assisters: 3DSMax, Photoshop 7 Map SummaryInfo: "The Hall Of Giants is now open to the Tournament again after being closed for some time for renovation.

Edition CD2. Static Meshes: Ramps and ledges, although these are actually properly converted BSP brushes in 3DSMax by Bonehed316. New Sounds: Two, again imported from Unreal Tournament. New Scripts: Two brand new actors, a BotUTJumpPad. Works exactly like a normal UTJumpPad but only affects bots. Written by me though instructed by Blitz. These replaced the other new actor a BotKicker, a kicker that only kicked bots, which was coded by AngelMapper. New Music: The original music from Unreal Tournament's CTF-HallOfGiants, Nether, converted to .ogg format by someone. Map Credits: Unreal Tournament CTF-Hall of Giants creator: Juan Pancho "XceptOne" Eekels A huge thanks goes to the following who have helped me out hugely since this map began, a very long time ago: Bonehed316 Teddie BesigedB AngelMapper Blitz Tarquin Hourences Spiffness Lenbo RevBillyG SexMachine XceptOne. Authors Notes: Thanks for getting CTF-Hall of Giants 2004. Firstly, to be honest, almost the whole map is a direct port from UEd2 to UEd3. I only added the extra narrow ramps. Secondly, in a way I didnt built the geometry of the map, really Bonehed316 did since he very kindly helped by converting most of the BSP geometry into Static Meshes and Blocking Volumes. The map has taken far too long to make actually, well over 6 months now. This is partly because it is my first every map so I was learning all the time, it is partly due to all the school coursework and exams I've been doing (I'm only 17), and also it is because it has been a very difficult map to get right. The bot pathing was made difficult by the speed tubes and because of the option of switching from one ramp to another. Overall since the start the map has been completely retextured 4 times, has been completely relit 3 times, and completely repathed 4 times. However, its done now I think. If there are any bugs you find, please post about them on the Atari Forums in the CTF-Hall of Giants 2004 thread that I will make. Known Bugs: 1. For no apparent reason bots do sometimes when they are respawning after a translocation. They will constantly translocate on the same spot until some kind of "intervention" is made by someone or something. 2. Also for no apparent reason the sounds that play when you enter and exit the speed tubes do not always play. No one I've asked can explain this. When they do play they are clearly audiable. 3. Yet again, for no apparent reason, when you exit the speed tubes, there is a very tiny possibility that you may be thrown higher up above the map than normal. However, this did sometimes happen in the original, but either way I still dont know why. Once again, thank you for getting CTF-Hall Of Giants 2004. ZedMaestro PS.
