Beach bum guys Weathertop coop.
a map based on whethertop in the lord of the rings.
Some screenshots, i was to lazy t upload 10 screenshots so i made a collage.
To try to keep things more fair then usual i decided it would be best to play this on a setup with no custom mods running , The way the author probably intended it to be played. full ammo all normal weapon at the start.the server was set to the difficulty ‘unreal’. so i began , walked into the map having never watched lotr ever.
The Bsp terrain was pretty impressive , since there is so much terrain , it is hard to believe it is as stable as it is. Its a good quality map, maybe not as detailed as i would like ( Repeated terrain textures , lack of tress etc.) and as typical , some areas in the map seemed over powered . It’s a typical type of setup where you run along the map taking out soldiers and bosses and pressing a number of button to unlock a gate that leads to a main ending area in the middle on the map. Its not a adventure map , its more a monsterhunt type map.
Initially i was reminded of skaaratower , with its seemingly endless Terrain . but if you look from the maps top its actully a rather small map that mostly just wraps around it self to look bigger.
I played it tho and it took me about a hour , i died 29 times. The checkpoint is in a good spot and I am happy with it there. but at first thought it was to far from the start to the first checkpoint. I cant be a great judge as i never saw lotR’s By I can say it another awesome map created by a good mapper.
There wasn’t really a explanation of what had to be accomplished at the start, other then the level enter text. I made my way into the house and found mostly snipers waiting to kill me as I walked in. died twice before i got inside to find little of value inside , But i did spot 2 walls that were misaligned near the windows in the darkness.
I proceeded to make my way across the field toward the towers i could see ,I sort of like field in maps, so that is a plus. after clearing the snipers i had to deal with the 2 titans ( that i will talk about later)… then more snipers and a giant squid , and breskers , and more snipers , and some brutes. Did i mention snipers? ,I got sniped as soon as i spawned by snipers on top of stones i couldnt even see till i was dead…
After pressing all the buttons i got a completed message. but whats completed? i have no idea. finally locating the gate i located the finalie of the map , The ending of the map was fairly impressive, but only had 2 or 3 titans , I already killed 2 titans in the map at the begining , This is a epic fight scene , If you used titans here , you cant use titans else were in the map. Otherwise it seems less epic.
All and all it was a fun map after you deal with the 100 snipers.
It 225 compatible.
I only tested on jcoopz1. cant be bothered checking on other versions.
on a standertd server the map ran fine ,
On my ah monsters server , the server tended to get stability issues
I didnt check to see if it was pathnoded , im gonna say no without checking. I am very busy lately. There isnt enought hours in the days to sleep play eat and work, and post on a semi daily basis, this post should have been posted last thursday sorry if it is late bbg. I dont think anyone here realizes how behind i am on posting stuff…
