    General Info

    Title: CTF-SafeGuard


    Author: Bryan Sparksman

    EMail Address:

    Release Date: 2th Mar 08

    Version: 1.2


    The content of this level was taken all from the retail version of UT3, I did modify some materials, but a big thanks to EPIC for putting their content into well sort out groups, I would not have been able to do this if it was not for this level of organization.

    Thanks to "Larathiel eMail" who created this map for UT1, this map was great, and was simple enough to be the very first map I have made.



    Move all files into C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Published\CookedPC\CustomMaps

    If the directory does not exist, create it manually.

    Type "open CTF- SafeGuard" in the console, or select the level in a multiplayer/instant action game.

    If you find you are seeing low detail meshes when you play. This is not a problem with my map rather a problem with your game setup. I have managed to fix this for myself.
    What I suggest you do, is uninstall, reinstall, patch, and then create the custom maps folder. Next time you play the map, all should look good!

        do you realise that, those textures could not posibly be aligned any better? the one by the stinger is aligned to the grid on the rest of the ground floor and aligned so that the texture detail is below the weapon pick up! I got this idea as it was used the same way in coret and in omicron dawn. what are you on about??? thats not a well thought out comment.

        As for the second one, thats aligned to floor, but it looks that way simply because of the way the U engine renders the UV maps, it makes it seem elevated

        Ahh please remove your post, because that was just wrong and people will get the wrong Idea, what your sugesting by the stinger would require a total change in the texure used...


          Dunno what hes going on about, although id be a little nicer in your response to him.

          ANway, this level looks great. TOtally ****. GOOD JOB!


            pure awesomeness bazzwano! from a mappers point of view, i seriously don't think this could be improved at all. The gameplay rules, it looks bloody beautiful, bots don't seem to have any issues, weapons / armour / powerups are well balanced, and to top it all off the framerates are descent too .

            this is Make-Something-Unreal-winning quality stuff mate. be sure to enter it!


              It looks awesome, but can we play it the same way? I'll DL it


                Bazzwano, Thank you for the version 2 i love mappers like you that keep improving it just for the community. I truly enjoyed your version 1.2 and now im going to upgrade to this version and enjoy it even more. Thank you!!!

                            Many thanks for shearing this version

                            Your map is my preferred CTF map including retail one. The 1.2 version was <a-must-have> and this one is surely <a must-must-have>. I will love it without a doubt since it is a enhanced version of my favorite CTF map.

                            Thanks again

                            EDIT : LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT !
