This map is a rather tight Duel map. I don't recommend playing it with more than 3 players, since the layout is pretty small.
This map is the remake of my Unreal Tournament GotY map DM-LP-Aelon, included in the Low Poly Map Pack 2. The layout has been altered a bit, and of course the difference in the visuals is abysimal.
Most of the map has been built with custom meshes, made with Blender. I tried to make a good looking map, while still keeping a good gameplay, visibility and performance.
I also tried to get an old Unreal feeling in this map. Aside from the evergreen tarydium crystals, I tried to make a pretty colorful map and to use many volumetrics to create a pretty nice "oldskool" atmosphere.
If you get some slowdowns (you shouldn't get any, though. The map is pretty light) or if you just want a cleaner looking map turn the detail level to Low to get rid of the grass, the particle effects and some other details.
Thanks to Hourences for the gravel texture I used in the map, taken from the
HourKraden texture pack.
Thanks to Bantis, Cr4zyB4st4rd, Ignotium, Minifloppy, RennyManJr, Slainchild and Vybz for feedback and help during map development.
