Description: A FFA/CTF map inspired by the Heir To The Empire comic artwork.
Unzip the Karrdes_Lair_2008.pk3 in your gamedatabase directory. The map should now be available under the FFA, CTF & TFFA multiplayer menu.
Talon Karrde's Lair is modelled after the one depicted in the Heir To The Empire comic book... although much of the interior has been added by me.
The map features several distinct areas, such as the beach, main building, lookout, storage and landing zone.
Hidden around the map are several of the force resistant Ysalamiri - picking one up in FFA will net you 10 extra points.
Elevators are used by pressing the 'use' key - either while standing on one at the bottom of the shaft or while next to the elevator door/switch at the top.
The map supports FFA and CTF
This map has not been optimized, nor has it been playtested by me against other players.
I simply wanted to get the damn thing out the door, since half the time these things never get released.
It IS a fairly large map and while I've included FFA, TFFA & CTF game modes, it may be more suited to "roleplaying" or making vids.
It runs at very low FPS with 8 bots on my 6/7 year old P4 with 384Mb Ram & GeForce 4Ti card.
Your performance may vary.
While the bot route is OK... the bots do tend to get stuck in a couple of places.
Since I'd have loved to have done heaps more on this map but My computer can't seem to compile it,
I have included the MAP file as part of the zip... you can use this to improve performance, or change the map in any way you see fit,
eg: optimize fps, change the npc's, make changes to areas you don't like/don't need, add a cool portal sky, change the sky shader,
reposition the weapon/item/flag placement, add different music to the level...
It's up to you what you do with it BUT if you release it publically, you MUST CREDIT ME 'Monsoontide' with the original creation. Thanks.
Bot Support: yes (though it really needs considerably more work). Perhaps someone might be kind enough to release an updated botroute?
New Textures: yes
New Music: no - was going to use "Sarlacc Unleashed" from The FOrce Unleashed but couldn't get it to work.
Everyone at Hapslash's Void for their comments over the LONG development of this map.
