It was a nice little map full of atmosphere and with an excellent layout. It was one of my all time favorites. After learning a few scripting tricks when I fixed DM-Timeless for our clan server, I decided it was time I did something about Meldrak so this jewel would not be lost to the Unreal community. I tried to keep as much as the original's atmosphere intact as possible. For instance, there are NO $%?*&? pickup bases anywhere, all weapons and items are actual objects placed around the map as they were in Unreal and UT99. There's an actual shield belt and an armor suit borrowed from UT99. Health is in the form of nalifruit bushes, and I even added single bullet and single flak shell pickups like in the original. Weapon stay does not work with these new weapons, but I set them to respawn after just 5 seconds, so you never have to wait very long, if at all, for the weapons to be available. The textures are the higher resolution ones of UT2004 of course, and I did a little trimming work to improve the look, but I kept that to a minimum so it would not depart too much from the original. Music and sound effects have also been transfered from Unreal and there are a few other changes and improvements here and there. The one major change I made to the map is giving access to the roof. Meldrak is relatively small, and I was afraid that the much greater mobility of players in UT2004 would make it feel cramped, so I decided to add some space to it. The roof was the logical place to do this. Meldrak's roof is not just a flat featureless space but it has a structure of its own dictated by the underlying architecture, and specific challenges for the players. It also has many places that allow players to shoot down into the main part of the map and ambush the players running around down there. The only aspect of Meldrak I could not preserve in this version was adding a razorjack, or it's UT99 cousin, the ripper. Although I did find a few UT2004 ripper mods, none of them could be used because they could not be transfered to the MyLevel package, an absolute must for all custom items in my maps. I had to do without and I distributed the other weapons as best as possible to compensate the loss. ============================================================================================ * Know bugs * ============================================================================================ None ============================================================================================ Installation ============================================================================================ Put DM-Meldrak2004.ut2 in your UT2004 'Maps' directory.
