This was your first map? I see a lot of long hours went into this. Not for just the map, but the custom content. I'd like to see how you setup those powercores to move like that. This map shows that your are comfortable with the editor as a whole: materials, kismet, editing tools, trigger systems, etc...

The battle for the core now wages across fields of molten lava.

2 Link Setups - Default & AxonVsNecris

Known Issues/Bugs:
*Some Pathing issues such as bots not using the ramps or parking their vehicles on top of each other. Bots also can't find their way out of lava if knocked in nor can they attack the cores from the lava side.
*Cicada Rockets blocked by upper Force Direction Volume regardless of "block all but weapons" property set. Standard blocking volume used as a temporary solution.
*Many planned shadow effects that displayed in the editor would not render after building no matter what lighting channels & settings were used.
*Generic Minimap texture.

This is my first map from scratch & my first UT3 map period.
I've worked on this map for much longer than I originally intended to.  I had to pull alot of things back out of the map that I had created such as custom music (the dynamic music system would not change the loops properly),
custom lava splash particles for performance, and stripped back the falling ash from the entire map (because it became annoying when constant) but kept it on the sides only as it does look good in moderation.
I also went overboard on the lighting the first time around and had to scale it back.

If your a server admin & run WAR-Moltencore-Beta1 on your server, pm me over at the epic forums and let me know so that I can add your server to the list of servers running the map (so that people can find it easier to try it online).

Granted I cannot legally charge for my map, but I'm not above accepting donations.
If you like the map, want to pay homage, or just want to motivate me somehow, tossing me a buck or two would be very much appreciated.
