Domain is a tactical, team based FPS, set in the year 2049 in a totalitarian world of a dominant global government, underground rebellion and sinister corporations.
Featuring 4 unique teams:
The USE: The security forces of the global government, USE forces are well equipped, brutal forces of the state, quick to suppress any potential threat to the state.
Rebels: An underground resistance movement, operating in small cells the rebel movement hide beneath the cities and in the wilderness, swift guerrilla attack is their main form of attack.
Corporations: The corporations of the new age have their own law, corporate agents are a lethal force that strike fear into the hearts of those who see them.
Gangs: In the sprawling mass of the city the gangs control their stomping grounds through violent reprisal against all who stand against them, their only threat is rival gangs, fighting for control of the drug supply networks.
In the released public alpha there is only one gameplay mode example:
Objective match: 2 teams fight to achieve a chain of objectives to win the match.
We have more gameplay modes planned:
Resource control: Up to 4 teams must collect and return to their homebase a set value of resources which have to be collected from a central location, this mode is best described as capture the flag with a twist.
Hostage rescue/VIP escort: As seen in other tactical team games
We are also working on developing other gamemodes, with maps for 2-4 teams according to the scenario/gametype.

Installation: The game is distributed in one of two formats: umod format: A simple, self installing archive designed specifically for distributing unreal engine content Zip format: The raw files for installation in a single, manual installation archive Umod installation: Double click on the domain umod and follow the instructions, being careful to ensure that you enter the correct path to your installation of unreal tournament 2004. For Umod help, please visit this site: http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/UMOD/Problems Zip installation: Extract the zip file into your ut2004 directory. The game runs with it's own .exe under windows Domain2049.exe which is found in your ut2004/domain directory. The game can also be run from the commandline using the line: ut2004.exe -mod=domain To run the game on other OS' (Linux, OSX or Unix based OS') use the same switches as above with your usual commandline for starting UT2004. Running servers: Included in the archive is a batchfile to launch your own server: RunDomainServer.bat Servers can also be launched with the commandline: ucc server DMN-AldwychStation-beta?game=domain.dmngameteam?minplayers=0?timelimit=20 -mod=Domain Gameplay: Domain's gameplay focusses around assaulting and defending key objectives in the map. When you first join a map you will be asked to select your team and choose the weapons loadout for your player, having done so you will be presented with an objective overview screen, which describes and illustrates your team's mission on that map The objective screen can be recalled at any time by pressing the 'O' key by default The loadout and team change screen can be recalled at any time by pressing the 'B' key by default To activate an objective, the player must either press the use key or just stand directly in front of the objective. But beware, you're opponents are told what you are up to, so hope your team mates can protect you while you work. Maps typically have a chain of objectives to complete in order, which will be described and pictured on the objective overview screen. Teams spawn in waves in Domain, so that when you die you dont automatically respawn, but instead wait until the wave timer has counted down to zero (top right of screen) and then any waiting dead team mates will respawn with you, enabling a more teamplay-based game. When a team has completed all objectives they score a point and the game is reset..each map has it's own goal score which is shown on the objective overview screen (some maps might be small and fast and require more rounds, whereas larger, more stealthy maps may only have a single objective victory to win the map). The first team to achieve the map's goal score is the winner, if neither team reaches the goal score before the time runs out (20 minutes by default) the team with the most points is declared the winner. Mapping for Domain: We would love for people to make custom domain levels, and as such we give access to our mapping document, available at: http://www.spindles.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/DMNmapping.htm The game comes with a wealth of custom content in the form of meshes, textures and sounds for creating your own levels, however we would like to specify that this content is ONLY for use in domain levels, not for any other game, mod or ut2004 gametype, we worked long and hard to make it and we ask that people respect it as our property in return. Feedback: We love feedback! Even "bleh! this games sucks" is good, its better to know we're doing something wrong if we do :) however what we really like is when people tell us EXACTLY what they do or dont like, and even better if they tell us why, or what they feel might help improve things. You can contact us through our forums which you can find by visiting our website at: http://www.domain2049.com We hope you enjoy playing DoMaiN
