    VCTF-CorruptionAE



    VCTF-CorruptionAE

    This is dedicated to those +five hour matches that lasted late into the night when the community was still young. To those neverending matches where scores of 200, 300, 400+ were possible. To all the *****ing about about how overpowered the Nemesis is, and how its was near impossible to get out of a base with a flag on a populated server. To the countless bugs in this map, and the people that found them out, and subsequently exploited them :-P. I started this project because I wanted to revive Corruption to its former glory, and bring it into the UT3 2.0 era with new, better, gameplay and zero exploits.

    Technical Changes:

    + Optimized the map a bit, should run a little smoother.
    + Fixed bug near axon base where a force directional volume was blocking hitscan weapons.
    + Fixed several areas that allowed you to exit a vehicle and quickly scale a blocking volume by pressing jump. Whoever does that now will be greeted with death. Also, in general, players will not be able to get past a certain elevation.
    + Fixed bug where if you hit a rock moving on hoverboard and jumped, you would be flung several hundred feet in air.
    + Adjusted several rock static meshes that had exposed edges, so you could see underneath the rock. This has been fixed.
    + Fixed bug where if you jumped to a certain point towards the top of a base with a scavenger, you would be stuck and unable to exit the vehicle. The only way out would be to /command prompt suicide. This has been fixed.
    + Fixed out-of-map bug on axon side kneepads. It has been changed so if you drop down to that area, you will die.
    + Fixed bug near axon base where you were able to jump outside the game area via walldodge+hammer jump.

    Gameplay Changes:

    + Kneepads have been replaced with Chest Armor.
    + The Chest Armor has been replaced with a Shield Belt.
    + New Player Starts have been added down near the dragon-platform area (with nearby weapon rack) to help counter spawn-killing in the spawn rooms, and to help balance flag runs so a flag runner is not always directly greeted by people he has just killed. Also in each base one Player Start has been added completely outside, near the stinger.
    + All jump pads have been given air control.
    + Each base now has one avril ammo piece, under the lion fountain.
    + One Deployable EMP has been added in the middle of the map, deep in the water under the water mill.
    + The blocking volumes covering the sniper areas in both bases have been removed, so it is now possible to get up/around those nooks and crannies with manta/scavenger/etc.
    + Jump Boots have been added, and are placed in the middle of the small bridge in the center of the map.
    + Previously, players could access an area behind the oriental wall in the middle of the map (near redeemer, facing the skyline.) the axon side would be able to get up easily via double jump, while the necris side had to either hammer jump or perform a difficult board-jump. This has been fixed by giving the necris side a small stepping stone.
    + To help counter excessive necris camping of the axon longbow avril area with the nemesis and darkwalker, a rock similar to the one the nemesis is able to hide behind at the blue base has been added to the red base.
    + The necris stinger area has been adjusted, so it mirrors axon proportions and is the same distance from the spawn rooms as the axon stinger is.

    New Content:

    + In front of each base (lower part, near goliath or walker) There is an entrance to a tunnel that leads to the back of the base to the dragon-platform area. The axon tunnel has an earthy feel to it while the necris tunnel has a more dank feel. I put the tunnels in to give flag runners an extra option when either "infiltrating" the enemy base or leaving with the flag. I feel that the tunnels, + the jump boots, give skilled runners the tools they need cap flags.

    The map looks best with some post processing. Like all Epic maps, its quite large (61mb). I tried to cut it down to allow for quicker downloads, but only could end up shaving off a few MBs without compromising the theme/style of the map. It is unlikely I will be updating this map - but its not out of the realm of possibility. Built/published with patch 5 (2.1)

    Special thanks go to BGE. Especially Oldskool, Brett, and the god, MapMonkey. Also Hojunhu is the best in the entire world. Props to Remus for the skydome texture. Thanks to the original Epic creator, he did all the real work. Hope the map is played and enjoyed, here is the download!

            Morgy, are you familiar with the glitch in the bases where if you take a Manta, Viper, or Scavenger to the edge of the back of the base, it instantly explodes and kills you and the kill is awarded to the last person who killed you or one of your teammates who is next to you? It's almost like there's a kill volume there that's right on the edge of the railing, and it's really annoying.

            Otherwise, fantastic changes, and thanks for fixing the most broken Epic Games map of all time

              Its really nice to see this done, great work. There are so many of the Epic maps that could be fantastic with just a little tweaking. There are a bunch of tweaked DM maps that the competitive community have put out (Heatray-CE etc..), so its really nice to see a Vehicle map getting the same treatment

                I know what you are talking about and that should no longer be an issue. All the force directional and kill volumes that were previously in the back of the base have been tweaked. No more instant death if you decide to run around a bit with a vehicle back there.

                  Is there already a fix for VCTF-SuspenseNecris? Blue should have 2 scavengers instead of one Nemesis and Red needs their Hellbender back, or something similar to balance teams.

                            secretly wishing that an unnamed server co. could handle their 5hite, while also secretly hoping OUR GUYS!!! can find a fix! so i might play in public! (also secretly missing 3 hour corruption standoffs).
