Hey cool a LOTR Map - For anybody who doesn't know, thats Lord of the Rings. Now for the film perfectionists, this map isn't for you, and people who download this map just because its from a film may be a little disappointed as it isnt picture-perfect with the films. However if you brush that aside you still have a very nice deathmatch map with some cool LOTR features, like the Sauron eye floating in the sky (Looks just a little to glassy though.). Sure mount Doom wasn't in view from the Shire in the films, and yes, the sky wasnt quite as red and fiery, but you get the LOTR impression overall.
The teleporters seemed ever so slightly tacky to me, floating squares aren't exactly the peak of digital effects, but at least the ringwraith sounds which go with it sound amazing :) I was wondering why this wasn't made into a CTF map, with a few alterations this map would be very well suited to CTF. The waterfall again isn't too stunning, but the little pools and hills do this map proud. There are also 2 little hobbit houses, Bag-End and a Bag-End lookalike (Supposed to be Sam's house from the films) Again, they look nice but not quie film precise, and the same can be said for the insides. However, I guess when its for UT2003 you kind of need all the floating powerups in there ;) OH, speaking of '2003. Make this for 2004! Seems to work well enough, but the weapons aren't quite right :)
So overall a nice map, if you want a spot-on replica this isn't the map you're looking for, but it's still a darn good place to kill each other in :)

And I send a 2nd "Thank You" for allowing me to post this new version. When I first played the original version I got instantly hooked on it. Then I began messing with a few things (in the UED) that I wanted to have different. About 35 hours later.... it was almost like a new map. Any questions, comments ? Email me > email@example.com be sure to list the subject as "UT Maps" or something similar or your Email may be deleted as I thought it was spam mail.... To anyone who downloaded this version, I Thank You also... Enjoy!!! Stormblade
