    CTF-Stratus Released [PC][V1.2]

    Hello Everyone

    Welcome to my thread where I have released my 3rd UT3 level called CTF-Stratus.


    Download (PC) (V1.2 FINAL)
    Mirror Download
    BU FIREWORKS

    The level is a combination of many things which I find fun in a CTF Level. I feel that I have met that Goal.
    See this Thread for an overview of what I set out to create and also follow the making of this map from the beginning.

    I know many of you have been waiting some time for this, I was initially working casually on this one unlike my other two levels, this plus allot of layout testing I did added to the time. I hope the wait was worth it.

    Thanks Everyone. Details Below:

    Name:
    Stratus = The lowest clouds, generally found below 3000 metres altitude and often appearing as an overcast deck. Can also be found as scattered patches. Individual cloud elements have very ill-defined edges.

    Stratus is comes from the Latin word for "layer."
    Stratus was also derived from the word stratosphere as the level takes place high above the planet (not as high as you may think though )

    Description:
    Welcome to planet Stratus a once uninhabitable hot rock. This facility and many other have been reducing the hostile atmosphere of the planet, generating seas and breathable air. However not all stations are functional causing a dramatic increase in the planets temperatures. This processing station is now used in the tournament as it has not been fully operating for years, with flooding on the lower levels of this stratus facility, once you reach the top, there is only one way down.

    Features/Design:
    The map was designed with the hope of creating a visually “new” theme with the existing epic made meshes from the LT and HU Package this was a very difficult combination to work with.
    The level has almost 3 vertical levels which add some unique Z axis fun in comparison to current CTF levels.
    This map has powerups that are on a timer which spawns when the team’s flag has been in the base stand 60 seconds. This adds a new dynamic to the way the map is played and opens up new ways the player would normally play the map.
    The player can now time the capture, choosing weather or not to risk taking these powerups at the cost of possibly making the flag run harder for the flag carrier.

    Elevators also indicate the floor level.

    Credits:
    Me for the original design, There are some new Monitor textures(alpha's) and edited Materials.
    Epic for their meshes and Materials.
    Thanks to Firefly and Sjosz for pickup placement advice, Firefly again for finding a collision bug. Stevelois for helping me stay positive and for his suggestions and lengthy feedback, and everyone else who gave me some support thought the levels development, I hope you enjoyed your beta.
    I still have to say a big thanks to DG Unreal for what you taught me while working on Dreary.

    Code:

    Author's Notes
    -----------------------------------------------------
     
    I designed this level with the aim of producing a unique look consistent with the look and feel of retail UT3 levels using retail meshes. 
    I also wanted to create a CTF level with a Unique Z axis feel. I wanted to bring the level alive with allot of moving parts and sounds.
     
    This map, as with my previous levels had each room created in a separate UT3 file and was all pieced together once final. The map has over 18300 assets.
     
    Map Features:
    This map has powerups that are on a timer which spawns when the teams flag has been in the base for a fixed length of time, rewording the team who defends well, each base is equal. 
    This adds a new dynamic to the way the player would normally play the map. The player can now time the capture, choosing weather or not to risk taking these powerups at the cost of possibly making the flag run harder for the flag carrier.

    Elevators in the map indicate the floor level.
    Custom Sun Flare with Refractions.
     
     
    Changes In version 1.1:
    -Reduced Underwater PPU DOF
    -Increased Fog Distance
     
    Changes In version 1.2:
    -Fixed Missaligned Light Cones
