I need a map project for UT2004 to keep me occupied this year. I'm aiming at a Bombing Run map with a frozen theme, something like BR-Adrift from UC1 or BR-IceFields/BR-Bifrost from UT2.

Problem is I don't have any central theme to go with this. Anyone here has a great idea?
What I need is a cool main idea. A 2-lines description that sounds awesome. Like BR-ElecField: it's giant rusted spears collecting lighting above a suspended mechanical city.

Fun fact: The reason why the Mercenaries seem so bullet-spongy is because several of them are actually the Elite variant (the blue one you see at the start of Noork's Elbow), but using the regular skin. I don't know why Epic did that, but they did.

>> No.3789870


Er, I made a mistake: several of the Mercs in Terraniux and Terraniux Underground have been modified to have higher health, be fatter, and can shoot with their barrier on, which makes them closer to elites than regular ones.

BR is easy, it requires a bit of managing your armor and health to stay alive.

Is that the train one? I've just started playing UT99 for the first time recently. On Skilled difficulty and I've completed CTF and Deathmatch no big problems, but Assault just feels janky and shit. Teammates are useless and the game is mostly walking back to stuff from spawn and the only way to win is to kill the whole enemy team twice without dying more or less single-handedly.

According to epic, players didn't understand it was a melee weapon and were trying to shoot with it.

If you're playing through campaign then your teammates will be on a lower skill level than the one you selected and will enver get better, while the enemy team's skill level will improve the further you get into a ladder.

Assault is much better when played in a regular botmatch and the teams have the same AI level, though there are some bottlenecks like AS-Overlord where you'll have to serve as the speadhead to break up an enemy chokepoint, or else your team will never win..

That's surprising to hear about the AI. In some of the later CTF maps my bots were able to pull off some captures on hard levels. But then I suppose luck and me holding off nearly the entire enemy team would have factored into those.

>> No.3816896

Why is the Sunspire so good? It's a huge area that's basically a maze; by all rights it should suck dick, but it's a really fun area to go through. Dat feeling when you finally get outside again after crawling through the first few levels and see how high up you already are, even though you're not at the top is enjoyable. It's amazing they managed to pack such a huge area into one map without any loading time inbetween sections.

Sunspire is also quite tense. One wrong move and you'll lose a lot of you HP to a Gasbag, Tentacle, or Skaarj Trooper. The area is crawling with Eightball-equipped Troopers without lots of room for you to move as well, so you gotta play cat and mouse with some of them without eating a ton of damage.

Also, the Biorifle is really gud. Been using it more than the Eightball recently.
