Round-based mix of Assault, Domination and Weapon Team Arena. Each round one player is chosen to attack the enemy base within 1 minute. Equipped with the lightning gun he is up against 3 defenders with rocket launchers. He either kills all enemies or scores once the base becomes controllable. More details on the new website.

Mapping
The first map has been created by yours truly. I must say that mapping for Elite is different from the usual mirror type capture the flags maps or claustrophibic deathmatch dungeons. It is all about progression while still being able to make it without appearing too powerful.

This does sound like a daunting task to balance this but you can relax on the game mechanics, knowing that the players can not just sit idle. In short: as mapper you don't have to worry that much which on the other hand opens new possibilities that were a no-go otherwise.

However, i am only average when it comes to mapping. I hope one or two people in the community come and join me on this later on. I will explore this area myself, but only for so much. This bring us to...

Progress
I feel like i wrote this gametype about three times so far. I am constantly finding new flags and methods inside the base Unreal Tournament 2004 sourcecode that i can utilize for this mod that makes me throw away my custom code. But that's a good thing, as it only makes it well integrated into the original game which then results into better support of other third-party code that relies on the very same stuff. Codingwise you could say i am cleaning up the codebase, refactoring out anything that has the potential to cause bugs.

New Features

  • Shotdistance Announcer: If the attacker kills someone the distance in meters is shown on screen.
  • Gameobjective Announcer has been improved. Now also tells what to do next and initiates a timer.
  • Customizable Weapons: For fun and giggles. If you wanna play 'Link vs Goo' or 'Shock vs InstaGib', here you go.
  • Focus on Attacker: If you sit out you watch through the attackers view.
  • Lots of internal stuff and some early testing with UTcomp to make sure it still works with that.

And this sums it up.

One last thing: I will create a website for this mod, maybe pointing to this site or at least linking to it. This was done so you have another 'goto' place for all things "Elite", including documentation, downloads, repositiories and stuff.

I've created a map pack for you. Only 10 at the moment, but will be adding more. I should have about 50 by August, maybe sooner depending on you contacting me.

We have coders, but we hope our help will encourage you to finish the project.

Either way we would appreciate your input.

Thank you Beltamaxx
