The three most ferocious species in the universe in a bloodthirsty battle for the ultimate prize: survival. Take your pick: be a Colonial Marine, a Predator or an Alien. Fight through suspense-filled environments: from starships and space stations to colonial bases and eerie planetscapes. One wrong move turns you from hunter to prey.
This is the standalone release of Deck 16, a conversion of the Unreal map to AvP Classic 2000. This map is also in the Universal Map Pack.
I'm proud to release this brand new port of the deathmatch map Deck 16 to Aliens versus Predator, ported from Unreal Tournament. It was a collaboration between SacredAnarchy, Cracco, and myself to make this a reality. Deck 16 is one of our favorite maps and one of the most iconic and famous deathmatch maps of all time. This version received our personal care and consideration to best translate to AvP, refining it for fast and frenetic yet smooth and optimized multiplayer matches, allowing for strategies for all species, and also being welcoming to new players yet maintaining a high skill ceiling for competitive players. The map's texturing is heavily borrowed from the original map (while also being improved in certain areas) while lighting and sounds were rebuilt. The lighting was created with the game's default gamma setting in mind (roughly one-third of the full gamma bar), but was also optimized to look reasonably good on the highest gamma setting, for those who are so inclined to play that way. In spite of its size, it works for small, medium, and large sized groups. Destroying the lights in a certain hallway may yield an advantage to alien players, but the main hangar will remain lit up.
If you notice any glitches with the map or if you have any questions, feel free to ask here or on our Discord server.
Step 1: To install, first locate your Aliens versus Predator Classic folder. The following are the usual places it can be found:
Steam directory: C:\User\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Aliens versus Predator Classic
GOG directory: GOG Games\AvP Classic or GOG Galaxy\Games\AvP Classic
Step 2: Once located, unzip all of the contents to your folder. Merge the avp_rifs folder. Deck 16.rif must be in a folder called custom or else it won't appear.
If you already have the graphics and sound folders in your directory, simply merge folders when asked.
If you do not already have the graphics or sound folders, then simply place the folders in this pack. See images if you have difficulty.
Step 3: To play the map, search for it under the map list in Multiplayer.
