Greeting, all you scurvy dogs!

I hope everyone's enjoying their Saturday so far.

I want to start out by mentioning that PVKII has won Fileplanet.com's Best mod of 2008!

As promised last week, today I'm excited to show you some pictures of pvk_forgotten for Beta 2.3.
Today's article includes:

    New Chest Spawns
    Pirates' Base
    Vikings' Base
    Knights' Base
    Sneak Peek of pvk_temple


New Chest Spawns

In the current version of pvk_forgotten, each team starts out with 2 chests. In 2.3, 1 chest will spawn at each base and 3 chests will spawn between the bases. This makes things a bit more interesting at the start of the match and helps to keep players on their toes! It's quite entertaining as players meet up to battle it out over who gets a head start.

Pirates' Base

Overall the Pirates' base has remained in tact as far as the layout is concerned. However, two new entrances have been added to allow the other teams variety of escape!

Here we have a shot of the entrances on the Vikings' side. They can go either below the bridge and come up into the base, or take their normal route, but jump up on the crates and drop into the base.

Finally, we have the added entrance on the Knights' side. Players may take either one, making it harder for the Pirates to know which way they've gone.

Vikings' Base

The Vikings' base has undergone a few changes including the new entrances. There has been some added cover for escapees, as well as some added detail. The spawn zones have also been pushed back a little for balance and some variety has been added to them.

First, some shots of the new entrances from the Knights' side:

Knights' Base

The Knights' base, like the other two, has also been given some new escape routes. One of the routes is through the water fall. There have also been some details added, along with a bit of cover from ranged attacks and kegs!

Altogether, pvk_forgotten has gotten some great new additions for 2.3 that add to the balance and aesthetics of the map as a whole. The new chest spawns also make the map more interesting at the start of the round and makes for some great first encounters. There's plenty more that hasn't been posted in this article, but you'll have to check out for yourself when 2.3 comes out!
