TELMAH SPEAR - Release Notes (Thank you for reading!) Submitted for the Landmarks Award (ModDB). -This project is the result of 220+ hours of precision work spanning the course of 63 days. -The map is, structurally, an exact exterior replica of one of the largest free standing news/broadcast buildings (The Calgary Herald) in my city, owned by the city's largest media organization - Canwest Global Communications Corp. -Initial scaling, for major site features, was calculated using Google Earth. (see included overviews) -Over 70 onsite photographs were taken for this project. (see included photos) -The playable area and site property have been, from the start, streamlined for fast pasted multiplayer action, suitable for 8-12 players (8 player DM / 4v4, 5v5, 6v6 TDM or CoD). - Thank you for giving us this great opportunity to express ourselves! Avecess.
Map Detail Notes
-- Scenario Synapses:
The APR have taken control of the lower West side of the building's exterior. Their fortification of the site has been stalled by the UFLL's infiltration team, which has arrived on the Eastern flank. The UFLL has taken control of the smaller parkade and is now attempting to drive the APR offsite. In response to the attack, the APR has mounted a retaliation outward from the West. Securing the main parking lot to the south is imperative.
-- The Purpose of vehicles:
Each faction has access to one team assigned vehicle. Use them as mobile cover or take them to the enemy. In addition to those vehicles, there is a third, neutral, assult truck in the map, that can grant either side a powerful advantage if utilized properly.
-- Tactical Recon (gameplay tips and info):
**Learn the map, take strategic cover. Don't get caught in choke points or out in the open!
**Cover your team mates! Have their backs when they run out and go on the offensive.
**Make note of ammo locations, use them as bait.
**Explosives are strategically placed. Use them to your advantage.
**Just because you can see your objective doesn't mean it's safe to make a run for it!
**This is a fast paced, intense map. Consequences are a reality for bad decisions!
