Hey im John from South Australia . I have a passion for level design and modding for games most notably the Cod series,I aim to produce as many high quality maps and missions as possible to keep the great cod modding community alive and active and just to show activision that in order for your games to survive the community must be involved with making the content.

To everyone that has played any of my maps I would like to thank you for being apart of the amazing experience that is PC modding and Call of Duty Single player. I hope that I can entertain you in the future especially with 'Triumph of the Will'

Sorry guys I set the date for November 1 but the download hadn't been archived for a few days now and by accident I clicked the 'Archive' button by accident completely hiding my mod from the public.

Anyway now I have to wait for both the download and the mod to get archived to view the page again so ive uploaded the map to mega-upload for the time being so people can play it.Hopefully is doesn't expire. If so ill re-upload. I also have the mod uploaded on filefront and waiting authorization.


Enjoy and don't forget to read the readme!!

Report abuse Why level design is the most important thing in a mission.

0 comments by taintxs on May 10th, 2011

After conquering hundreds of games SP levels ranging from Medal of Honor to Portal 2 I have realized what creates a fun experience.

The design and layout of the levels, not the scripted events which are by today's standards what makes a "blockbuster" game.

The levels witnessed from great games such as Call of Duty 1 really stood out because they were varied from vertical elements to seamless transitions from huge battlefields to ambient back alley skirmishes something that is lacking by today's standards, just look at the later CoD series namely mw2 and blackops where many of the missions involved just a simple route from A to B being flanked and attacked by enemies every bit of the way and predictable scripted events that wouldn't be remembered occurring at the most meaningless of times.

Industry developers of today seem to have forgot this and increasingly try to create games that act as interactive movies rather than the games we used to play and even tho they may be 5,10 or 15 years old still play.

Thankfully the communities modders and mappers continue to release their work free of charge and to a quality where the level design of the past is actually present in 2011.
