Retribution of the ConeScript - Short SP fantasy based map pack for Quake.
Retribution of the ConeScript is a Quake 1 Mission Pack. It offers an rpg style, but it is not a rpg game.The Main story is - that you are a warrior, who has been killed in the battle, your soul is held in the purgatory.You have to accomplish a few quests. These are the rune quests. You have to get 4 runes. Each rune has it`s own map and each map is different from another. It means, that you must complete it, each of them on it`s different way. You`ll start in the Trader`s Town, here you can buy an armor and a weapons from the proper shop.You can also listen to the words that are told by every character in the town (some of them helps you accomplish the quests).
RotCS is a fully playable prototype of the project I never finished.
There are 16 new maps, but really there are only 11. Some of them are just repeating themselves and the one is only a short intro..In order of appearance:* Prelude * TTownS * Forest1 * RoD * Forest2 * RoL1 * RoL2 * RoL3 * Forest3 ** TTown1 * RoT1 * RoT2 * RoT3 * TTown2 * RoM * Puzzle *Those maps were made on normal skill, there aren`t less or more monsters on other skills!

Mission Pack tooks me about a month of work, and in final I am disappointed. It should be a great Map Pack, but it isn`t.A lot of ideas were not used properly. At the start I had a lot of sounds, textures, skins and other things, that were not used.It is because of my laziness and because of a smal building problems I had.And so I had to set "visdist 1250" on TTownS,1,2 - beacuse of it`s bad framerate, there are also some bugs with disappearanceand penetration of the objects.When I could I built maps with fullvis (Prelude, Forest1,2,3, RoD, RoL1,2,3, RoT3, Puzzle).I tried to take out as many bugs in maps as I can. But I know that some of them are a really nasty bugs, I mean:* Triggering music to play - If you die - music will be no longer playing *There are more of them, but I can`t remember them.Last words:Did I scared you?Please do not think it is horribly bugged game, because it`s not.I have played it and it is full playable Mission Pack.One thing: I played my maps on normal skill, and I strongly recommend you to play on nightmare skill (if you are experienced player).Playing it on normal will be like a walk in the park, on nightmare you're gonna drop your health faster.

Last info, please do not forget about Nehahra Mod, RotCS will not run without it - Icculus.org and DarkPlaces, the great Quake Engine, but works slowly on older machines - Icculus.org
