Long ago, the galaxy had known peace. Paradise was ruled with the hand of science, and the hand was that of the galactic governing body known as the Core. Ironically, it was the Core's ultimate victory, the victory over death itself, that brought about the downfall of its paradise and started the war that would decimate a million worlds. The immortality process, known as "patterning," involved the electronic duplication of brain matrices, allowing the transfer of consciousness into durable machines. Effectively it meant immortality, and the Core decreed the process mandatory for all citizens in order to ensure their safety. However, there were many citizens unwilling to toss aside their bodies so casually, many indeed who regarded patterning as an atrocity. They fled to the outer edges of the galaxy, forming a resistance movement that became known as the Arm. War began, though it was never officially declared by either side.
Author: Tangaroa/Greybeard. Size 19 X 19, File Size 13.6mb, Minimum Ram 128Mb, Max Players 10. A map using Wotan's Zhon tileset conversion. The map was taken to the stage of being complete except for feature placement by Tangaroa, and then offered for completion to the TA Community. Hopefully Tangaroa is not too perturbed by what happened to his map. :-) The map is well laid out, with land bridges between the south and northern land masses, and water separation for east-west. Tangaroa created a 3rd level of heights which don't exist in part 1 of the Zhon tileset release, and used them on this map. The AI is set to default, and can use included default.txt by Switeck (Mostly Harmless v14) for OTA/Bugfix or default.txt from THE PACK's custom ai. Other options include using a hover or air ai of your choice and renaming to default, etc. Map requires tamec2004, tak2004beta, and the included zhonmetal.ufo for features... see readme in download for further details and credit.
