PostPosted: Fri Jun 01, 2007 22:17    Post subject:  Would you like this new map?
Subject description: GoTg_Castle-Windsor_DM
 

Greetings,

My name is Jeremy (MiSheps in HL2DM).

I am the server owner of MiSheps Basement HL2DM servers (4 of them). Back in February I decided I wanted to give back to the HL2 community by building a custom DM map. After 4 months, and around 400 hours of work, I’m happy to say that I have no accomplished that!

Right about now, you are probably asking yourself, “So why is this guy posting this here?”

The answer is simple. I’ve put a lot of hard work into a new map, along with the help from a few very talented people. I would like to get my map out to the world for everyone to enjoy! I would love for my map to be enjoyed by as many people as possible and more importantly I want it to gets it’s start in the HL2 world on the best servers that are out there.

That is where you come on. I have heard very good things about your server from my clan members (Guardians of the Gates [GoTg]). As such, I would like to offer for you to be one of the first to have the opportunity to include my new map in your cycle.

The map is a replica of Castle Windsor (from the UK). It is beautifully done with almost 100% custom graphics, plenty of secrets, & great weapons layout. It is a very large map which could easily accommodate up to 25 to 30 players, but at the same time, easily fluid enough for 2 to 3 players to still enjoy. It is a big map, but very easy to move around. Bottom line is that if you have players who want a good fight, regardless of how many there are, they can enjoy this map!

There are secrets all over this map, but all of which are relatively easy to find / figure out. The weapons layout of the map is very well thought out and designed for hours of fun. When you die, you can find your favorite weapon quickly and easily but at the same time, the layout is designed so that it will keep people on the move and will limit campers from wanting to camp in any particular location.

I have only included 2 RPG’s in the whole map, both of which are located inside secret areas that are on the more difficult side of figuring out. There are NO slams in this map as I use a lot of holographic doors and slams would be an unfair slaughter in any map with holographic doorways.

Bottom line, the map is fun, fast, and furious. In a lot of areas of the map you will (hopefully) be impressed by things that you have never seen in any other map. There are jump pads which can send you flying, lifts what are designed for quick navigation, low gravity suits as well as normal gravity triggers spread all around. All the water in the map acts as health chargers – no need to “use” them… just stand in water and be recharged! There are 3 superchargers in the map, and plenty of weapons and ammo to keep things hopping! There are also 6 stationary rocket launchers that are set in place but can still be aimed freely. These make for a RPG lovers dream, while at the same time, give the snipers an easy target to pick off those RPG whores.

It is a fun map, and I would LOVE for you to include it in your map cycle. If I were to say anything negative about this map, it would be in reference to its file size. Because all custom graphics are used, as well as custom sounds, the file size of the map is large (70 MB). However, it is very much worth the download. Once your players have a chance to play on the map, I truly believe that they will be hooked.

If you would like, you can visit our forum thread to read more about it. The forum thread for the release of this map (released today, June 1, 2007) can be found at:

http://www.mishepsbasement.com/NewForum/showthread.php?t=1336

I have also created a set of pictures for you to view of the new map.














And if you would like, you can view a video of the new map at:
http://www.colvinhouse.com/deathdealer3/videos/HTMLz/CastleWindsorFull.html

You can download the BSP from:
http://www.mishepsbasement.com/downloads/GoTg_Castle-Windsor_DM.bsp

If you would like to join our server to see the map in action you can join our 24 hour Castle-Windsor + Spookface server. This server cycles only the two maps (Castle Windsor & Spookface) 24 hours a day, so if its on spookface at the time, just wait til map change and it will be Castle Windsor!

Our 24 hour Castle-Windsor + Spookface server can be connected to at:
8.9.17.184:27015

And our website is: http://www.MiShepsBasement.com

Thank you for considering running our new map on your server! And thank you for running one of the best servers in the HL2 world!

Sincerely,

Jeremy Colvin – Aka MiSheps (Server Owner of MiSheps Basement)

Just played it on his server - took me a half hour to download so folks might give up if on steam.

Have to say it is very impressive with so many ideas. Only spen 5 mins looking around so dont know what gameplay is like.

It's tasty. Very Happy

We have give it a try with Diet H2O_TSGK at TSGK Serv XIX.
We couldn't visit all the castle, but we had some good time especialy in the disco rooms, the bar on the rodeo ride, the loudge with the disco ball.
We found a bunch of secret passages, used the gravity suit, had a chess game, Diet H2O_TSGK was chess and mate after i trowed my queen on him, there is a lot to do on that map for sure.
Good laught blowing ourself with the rockets canon, but as Diet H2O_TSGK said, it take sometime to download the map but worth it.
Very nice job Jeremy and all of those who have been involved on the build of that map.
We will let it on rotation on XIX and see if we get more feedbacks.

It's a very nice map, congratulation. I love it. I just had a graphics bug, but it seems it was my graphic card.

Great map. Stroke of genieus. So many secrets (got a guided tour of Misheps Razz) to search for and find.

Great work and a great addition to XIX i think Very Happy

download link was down so I made a new one:

http://www.mediafire.com/?7ryt9me1slm


... alright so I just played a 1v1 on the map now and it was pretty fun. I found it was kind of hard to find the players if you always say in the castle though.. it's more fun to fight if you go inside and outside so you don't have to search for your enemy. I really like the rocket cannons on the top.. they are soo great! .. also I like the hidden secrets. my fav one was the one that leads up into the water fountain. also I like the one that opens the main draw bridge in the front.. soo cool. the chess board reseter is awesome too Like that a lot. I'm sure there is a lot more to see.. LOL it was fun though.

okay played another 1v1 this time with ghostdog.

We found the super secret in the map and I must say it really touched me! It was sad but at the same time a very nice gesture! I really enjoyed both playing on this map and the experience it gave me.
