File Description

I noticed the rediculous shortage of good Domination maps for UT2k3 (although there are some good ones starting to filter through now) so I decided that my first map for UT2k3 would be a DOM one.

Since Domination is best suited to outdoors (I think anyway) that is what I decided on for this map. In an ideal world, I would have made the indoor area slightly larger, and the outdoor area slightly smaller, but in the end I think the map plays pretty well as it is.

There are a variety of strategies to use on this map. The indoor point is pretty easy to defend, although you'll notice a lack of health, and a need to venture outside in order to collect better weapons than the biorifle (argh, blasphemy, the goo gun rocks!)

For the outdoor point, you'll find it a lot harder to defend due to snipers and open play, but there's also more health, nice weapons, plenty of ammo and a shield to compensate. There are plenty of routes to get to the points, and there are a few surprises along the way. Have fun finding the Udamage and Keg...

Hope you enjoy this map as much as I enjoyed making it...for the first 100 hours of editing anyway, lol.

Ps - Even if you have a slower PC, I recommend running the map in high detail just ONCE to enjoy all the high detail splendour :)

Description             : Brand new DOM map for ut2003. Dom points are split between outdoor and indoor,

New Sounds              : No
New Static Meshes	: Yes - only collision for the trees though, nothing exciting.
New Graphics            : Yes - a couple of things. Most notably the water cubemap/shader and the tree 
			  shadows (projectors) are done with my own textures.
New Music:		: No - The file size is big enough as it is, and I'm no musician either :p
Known bugs              : - Although bots will quite happily go up to the sniping area to pick up the Lightning gun, they are very reluctant to snipe.
			  - There are no other bugs that I am aware of.

Base                    : Started from scratch.

Authors may NOT use this level as a base to build additional levels, I can't see why you'd want to anyway.
If you want to use my custom projectors or collision altered static meshes then just gimme an email, but i'd have to advise that 
you do them yourself, it's very easy :)

If you wish to commercially exploit this level, ie sticking it on a CD ROM and then selling it then you must get my permisson
beforehand... and offer me a nice cut should you make any money off of it... j/k.

Level editing history:
---------------------- 

Not a lot to speak of. I made 2 maps for UT, and only one I released, the other never got finished due to massive problems and lack
of time. Still, I have a little experience with the editor and it didn't take me long to get used to UnrealED 3.
This is my first map for UT2003, and IMO it's not too shabby :)
