    Dead Cat Invasion Map Pack - Final Release



    These maps are the final release versions and are designed expressly for the UT2K3 Invasion game mode.

    All of these levels are copyrighted by Epic games and Toonces T. Cat (aka Steve Copold)

    They may not be used for any purpose other than game-play without the express consent of the copyright holders.

    Get them here: http://www.unrealplayground.com/download.php?mapid=2598

    To use these maps do the following:

    1.) The file "DM-(~DCI)Dead-Cat-Invasion-Pack.ut2" is a placeholder...ignore it

    2.) Place all 8 of the .ut2 files in your ut2003\maps directory

    3.) Unzip WildWestv101.zip and place the files in the following ut2003 directories:

    wildwest_v101.u and wildwest_v101.int - ut2003\system

    wildwest_sounds.uax - ut2003\sounds

    wildwestpak_animations.ukx - ut2003\animations

    wildwest_staticmeshes.usx - ut2003\staticmeshes

    WildwestSkins.utx - ut2003\textures

    4.) Install the Fyrian Cannon in the same manner as the WildWest mutator...Check the Fyrian ReadMe if needed.

    The Wild West Colt Peacemaker mutator may be used separately in the "Arena" or "Replacement" modes...IT MUST BE INSTALLED FOR THE DEAD CATS INVASION MAPS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. Many thanks to Gusher at PreFabLab and Mr. Evil for the outstanding work. The weapon is a total anachronism inside of UT2003...and that is what makes it so much fun! Not to mention that it also kicks some serious monster booty...:-)

    The Fyrian Cannon mutator may be used separately in the "Arena" or "Replacement" modes...IT MUST BE INSTALLED FOR THE DEAD CATS INVASION MAPS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. Many thanks to Gusher and NeroTBF at PreFabLab for the skin and the model and to Mr. Evil for the outstanding weapon work. This is a very powerful weapon, but it does use ammo like grease through a goose and it will overheat...especially in secondary mode...if you're not careful with it. As with the WildWest mute, see the ReadMe for more details on its proper use in combat.

    Also huge thanks go out to Ghandi and Raven for their great MP5 and Benneli Shotgun.

    There have been numerous changes in the maps, especially Shotgun Gulch which is now about half its original size.

    ****IMPORTANT NOTE #1 - All of these maps contain an Enhanced Shock Rifle. With the exception of Silly Liver and Little Liver, they are very difficult to obtain without killing yourself. In two of the maps they are in secret areas protected by deadly mazes. Make sure that your "World Detail" setting is set to at least "HIGH" or you will not be able to see the things that can kill you.***

    ****IMPORTANT NOTE #2 - You MUST replace the file "wildwestpak_animations.ukx" with the one included in the WildWestv101.zip or YOU WILL GET A VERSION CONFLICT ON THE DEAD KITTY'S UT2003 SERVER...Put simply, if you are prompted to over-write a file for the Wild West mutator, click on "Okay"***

    ****IMPORTANT NOTE #3 - DM-(DCI)-Little Liver is a scaled down version of Silly Liver designed to permit much improved frame rates in the higher waves of monsters. Although they look very much the same, the game-play is entirely different and as result of that, I've chosen to leave both maps in the pack. There are a few added little treats in the smaller version for all of the Dead Cats that helped me beta test these puppies over the last few weeks.

    If you want to play the maps competetively on-line, visit the Dead Cat's UT2003 server at: 129.113.170.13 after 5:00pm CST and 24 hours on the weekends and holidays. We run both the CTF and Invasion game-types.

        Sweet can't wait to try them out
        Hopefully, I can get a better fps than on CTF-AcidPipeXmas-DCSE][, even though I couldn't seem to break 30 fps on it, its a fun map(especially with Excessive, deemer makes it real easy to get back up top)

          Speaking of Deemers, I miss the mutator called "Strangelove". It totally rocked!!

                  I have only 1 complaint:
                  when grabbing the extra weapons on acid pipe(colt, fyrian, mp5, shotgun) they kinda overtake some of my weapon pipes Ex: I have the shock and LG piped to the I key and after getting the colt(along with a second and the SSR) the pipe responds like this -> shock - colt - ssr - double colt

                  Kinda annoying, but I deal with it

                      I loved this map-pak. Nice work, especially the Car-Park map*. WIll there be more DCI maps in the future?

                      *) I am still jumping onto the cars expecting them to be a simple mover that starts off when you are standing upon it and then ride through a narrow tunnel smashing all the monsters in the way while playing the song 'Highway to Hell' from the car radio.

                        Weapon Key Binds...

                        Kel,

                        There may well be some clever code-monkey key bind around this, but I don't know what it is. The Dual Colts are fairly hard to get, so it hasn't been a problem for me so far. What I do about the ESR, is that once I get it, I then throw the standard Shock Rifle and the key just switches between the Colt and the ESR. It's the same with the MP5 and Flak, Fyrian and Mini, and the RL and the Shotgun...Two guns per key works well for me now that I've adjusted to it.

                          I found an interesting bug in Ancient Evil
                          Made a demo since its easier to see the bug than explain it
                          PM if you want a copy

                            A few of my clan mates had this problem. After researching it they discovered it's a side effect of Norton Security. If you are running a Norton Personal Firewall, disable it, download the file and then turn your firewall back on.

                            That should let you download from Unreal Playground.

                              I've been playing them on-line quite a bit, having a lot of fun. One thing though: I think it's a bit much having the MP5, the Fyrian and the Minigun since they are sort of similar.
