Sol Map Pack (R1)



1. OVERVIEW


The Sol Map Pack adds maps set on various planets and moons throughout our Solar System to Instant Action. Both stock eras include new sides with enhanced visuals and sounds, as well as new hero units. Also supports the Mass Effect era if installed.

1.1. This map pack currently features:

  • 5 new maps set on Earth, Luna, Mars, Titan, and Venus.
  • support for the Clone Wars, Galactic Civil War, and Mass Effect era on all maps.
  • new Battlefront: Evolved-esque sides, meaning gameplay and layouts stay the same, but models/textures/sound FX have been changed/upgraded to fit the map pack's theme.
  • an eerie ambient soundscape that supplements each map's music (except Earth: Pioneer Trails), unique to each map.
  • several new hero units, including but not limited to Rahm Kota and Asajj Ventress.
  • game mode support for Conquest, 1-Flag CTF, 2-Flag CTF, and Hero Assault. (Note: Game mode availability varies from map to map)
  • a new Hero Assault soundtrack, set to selections from Holst's The Planets, Op. 32.

1.2. What to expect in future updates:

  • New maps, including but not limited to Jupiter, Io, and Pluto.
  • Bug fixes.
  • Extended era support for future Mass Effect: Unification releases.

As most of you probably aren't aware, I have a channel on Twitch that I occasionally stream game development stuff on. Sometimes it'll be UE4 stuff or other projects, but more often than not, it'll be MEU stuff!

I don't have a set streaming schedule or anything, but I tend not to stream on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Otherwise, you can typically catch me any other day from around 3:00 PM to 2:00 AM (PST).

So yeah, feel free to catch me live by clicking on the image right down below!


Pro Tip: To receive push messages from Twitch's mobile app and/or e-mail messages whenever I start broadcasting, follow my channel and set "Notify me when the broadcaster goes live" button to "ON" as shown in this image (which for some reason I wasn't able to embed, haha).

Note: You won't need a Twitch account to watch my streams, but you will need an account to follow me and interact with me via the chat. Click here to sign up for a free Twitch account.

Hey, just wanted to say, these are really well done. I would call the whole pack some of the best mod maps I've ever played anyway, but the fact that Holst plays in the background absolutely makes it for me. Keep up the great work.

Thanks a lot! :)

"The Planets" is undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite classical suites of music, sitting up near the top with various works by Rachmaninoff and Whitacre, haha

Did you ban some parts of the world because I haven't been able to go there for a long long time?

Ah, yeah, certain countries were banned due to server attacks and the like. If you access it through Tor or a proxy of some sort, you can PM guru and request that he unblock your IP.
