Description             : An Onslaught map set in the "mini-me universe" of a giant sandbox in a park.  Onslaught's unique use of vehicles was just begging to have some hotwheels tracks and sand to drive on. :-)

GameType		: Onslaught
Reccomended Players	: 10-16 players.

Special Thanks to:

A big thanks to the folks at UnrealPlayground for answering the many questions I had during this project, and for giving me great feedback from the beta versions and cool suggestions for improvements.  Also a very big thanks to the gang at MURC for playtesting and feedback -- especially to SitFlyer who ran the betas on his server so that everyone could find the issues that were not obvious with just bots.

I originally wanted to make hot wheels tracks for the Scorpion, and ultimately came up with the idea to set everything in a giant sandbox.  I needed a way for players without a vehicle to quickly cross the map and to get to a nearby node so I added jump pads in the form of a giant slingshot. I also used this project to learn custom static mesh modeling (such as the tracks, sand tools, and slingshot), and added several custom textures as well.  All static meshes were made using Milkshake which is a quick and easy-to-use 3D modeler.  However, it seems to have a few limitations (or I just don't know enough about it), especially regarding texturing and converting over to UT friendly Lightwave Format.  Yeah, I need to learn Maya.  I'll use that for my next map.

For UT2003:

DM-Murc.		A tribute to the gamers at the Maxtrox Users Resource forum.

DM-Spelunker.		DM and TDM map set in a mining cavern with glimpses of the outside.  I'm especially satisfied with the lights flickering on the walls behind the torches. It took a long time getting that projector to work right.
