DM-December 24th



Whilst I can't access the e-mail server due to the recent changes, I decided to go scouting through the net for maps which weren't on this site, and I found this little beauty. I don't believe we've never had it here before! It's for UT2003, but works perfectly well with 2004, and it's all in the christmas feel!

The important thing to note about this map is that it's one of those 'oversized' ones where the player is exceedingly small. Now most of the time I don't enjoy these maps because they involve too much jumping and sniping (I suck at sniping) but this one was quite fun because the surroundings were very varied and it really did feel like the perfect christmas tree room. Sure the blood splatterings spoil the scenery a bit, but thats what Unreal is all about right? :D Anyways, on my PC UT2003 isn't installed so I tend to test the rare 2003 mod on 2004 to see if it works anyway - and I can safely say this should be no problem if you want to run it on 2004.

I was looking forward to exploring the outside areas and the piano room but unfortunately they're just there for show, which is a pity as outside looks very snowy and nice :) The bot routing here is very well done as well. There are 2 redeemers in the map and quite a few snipers. The music with the map is pretty nice too, I feel there were probably better pieces out there but it definitely isn't bad. It's kind of like a jazzy brass band remix of some popular christmas tunes like Sleigh Ride.
