Borderlands is an original First Person Role Playing Shooter that combines the intuitive reward systems of action role playing games and the frantic-paced shooting combat of first person shooters. The game features a groundbreaking content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in weapons and item drops. Borderlands allows for four players to share the same game experience simultaneously online in co-op gameplay. Players can freely join or leave each other's games at anytime, or choose to play in the full single-player mode. These features, along with a rich and deep fiction that touches upon the mysteries buried beneath the surface of a danger-filled planet, combine to form a breakthrough experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters.
Oasis is the custom map hub created by Shawn "AmranX" Davison and is required to run all custom maps for Borderlands. To install extract the contents of the rar to your desktop and run the self-extractor...if you are running the Steam version of Borderlands you will need to browse the installer to your Steam Borderlands directory. Once the hub is installed you will need to add Oasis to the list of visited locations in your character's save file. This can be done using the version of WillowTree provided in the rar. Start WillowTree and click the icon at the top-left corner of the program to load a save file (Documents/My Games/Borderlands/SaveData) then once the save has loaded click on the 'general info' tab and look for 'visited locations' on the right. Click 'New' and scroll down the list to 'Oasis' and click on it. Save the changes using the icon at the top-left corner of the program and Oasis should now be in your fast-travel locations for that character.
