School's out for the tree of Life, and Death

Close on the heals of another amazing high poly map comes CTF-ProjectX2. PX2 however stands very well on its own with dramatic eye-candy and a multi-route asymmetrical layout. A summary of the readme goes something like this... Barren world, ooh look a tree, sap is a cure all, people die. Whatever the reason for the landscape and man-made structures for becoming a Flag-bagging playground, a higher end computer will be the only requirement to truly enjoy this frag filled recess.

Because of the number of screenshots required to cover this map, A small animated giff will accompany the following narrative:

1: Starting inside the Red Base, ramps lead to the flag and sniper roosts cover the side exits and lower tunnel entrance. The ramps here make stealing away with a capture easier than the Blue Base, and a noticable omission of one sniper roost over the left entrance as seen approaching the Base.

2: The view from the right side of the Red Base reveals a grid like facade that poorly mimics the one way glass observation deck found on the interior. This side is covered by the two sniper roosts available and is the best route for your get-away.

3: Looking back at the Red Base, in the lower left is a prefab creating extra cover from above. Like the Blue side, four paths can be chosen. Attacking the Red Base from the undefended Left while using the advantage of the upper bridge approach and handy Rocket Launcher is best. However, the under-bridge route is most traveled by Bots and if you are Red, exiting camp and clearing out oncoming Blue Bots will nearly insures a cap doesn't happen in your absence.

4: Looking from the Red Base, you can see the bridge on the right and under-cave. What isn't clear is the leaft two routes, one by an extended piece of architecture of the Red Base, and to the extreme left, the upper canyon escape route.

5: Here we find the center section with the Tree-o-life. Green waterfalls and more crates decorate the way around and thru the tree. Deep in its bowels can be found the Redeemer shrouded in a mist of green sap.

6: The less seen side of the center section. Cool signs mark the different tunnels and if you are slick, you can snag the Shield Belt, Damage Amp and Armor. The Armor respawns more frequently so is always a good idea to take a dip for. I found the Amp and Shield Belt too close together for good placement.

7: Coming from pic 6, here we have a most excellent view of the Blue Base and a natural bridge. This is the worst way to approach the Blue Base as cover is slim and three sniper posts survey the valley. The better way in is from the right where jutting rocks block rifle fire.

8: Closing in on the Blue Base, three entrances, similar to the Red Base, can be seen. Two on either side, and a lower cave route. Again like the Red Base, the lower route also holds spawn points, Plasma Gun, Ripper and the Thigh Pads so should be avoided if you're of the wrong color.

9: Last, we have the inside of the Blue Base. The taller z-axis and symmetrical interior make this the better base to own. Just like the Red Base, one way windows don't echo their architecture equally outside. The Sniper Rifle, Shock Rifle and Flak Cannon are found in both Bases and are put to good use by the bots.

After playing this map over the last few days I still find it fun and refreshing. The ambient soundFX and high degree of detail creates an immersive environment. This comes at a price of a big zip file and low frame rates. Luckily I have a better computer than I did last year. People with minimum requirement boxes will find their rigs choking on the eye-candy and those with modem connections balking at the imposing download. No matter the case, what you do get is a finely rendered map with a pristeen custom textures. The asymmetry isn't all that bad and equality between sides is almost achieved. Winning from either team will be a challenge. Connectivity is above class level with the interconnected multiple routes, and all the environmental aspects rate high on the Schema scale. The only point of digression that I can't dismiss, would be the earth textures feel muted and coupled with the outdoor lighting absorb contrast and therefor lack definition. Perhaps a skybox of a complimentary color would allow for refective highlights. In any case, I would say the Author has already graduated from mapper school and is only hanging around to compete in team sports. Lucky for us it's Capture the Flag.

_UE_Hunter Rating: 7.5 
Worth a download. The base interiors are accomplished much better than the outside portions in my opinion. Much more contrast and detail. The red base's interior much to my delight was well thought-out and executed with no glaring errors. Outside the map gets a tad sloppy. The 'tree' in the middle was begging for another texture, and the tunnels inside the tree looked like random polys drawn around. The skybox could have contrasted with the landscape a tad more, but this is just a minor rant. Waterfalls on the other hand totally stood out as ugly. Do something; give it some steam or a modulated ripple texture. Anything but [b]square stretched water texture panning[/b] thank you very much :)

Absolutely Unbelievable. This is the messiah of the mapping scene. It looks amazing, it plays as good as any map I've ever played. It revolutionizes the genre, and it gets the first 10 I've ever rewarded a map on the NC player comments. Get the picture? ;)

HypErioN Rating: 7 
The size is impressive, the atmosphere is cool (could be better though) but the Build quality suxx0rs. Messy brushwork/layout, and boring gameplay really... And IMO there is no point in trying to make nice terrain until we get ahold of the next engine... It just ends up pointy, slow and with crappy lighting. I'ts worth playing, though.

One of the rare UT CTF maps that I still play from time to time... Great one, but in my opinion it could be a bit improved by adding some playerstarts in the middle of the map; this way the sheer length of the paths between the two flags gets shortened, not to mention you can form some sort of "strongholds," which add some tactical challenge.

oh my atheist ideology

It took me 3 steps to completely worship that map :

1) look at the review shot - damn now there's a cool map !
2) run the map and visit it in spectator mode - best atmospheric map since ONP and Xidia... truly impressive , magestic landscapes putting Antalus to shame. Tech structures and nature are well blend , it's like the workers here would have left minutes ago. This place looks alive.
3) Play it. The bots utterly owned me... defending or attacking couldn't prevent them for scoring , they caught me with ease after I got the flag and always managed to escort their flag carrier whatever their losses were. Not even the matrix moves could stop them...
I can't wait to play it online. Despite its size it's not an all - sniper map really , most weapons are equally usefull (minigun is still overpowered as in every outside map)
The map itself has a dream layout. It might have been boring , without its brilliant Z-axis flow elements (get your xloc out everyone !)

The map should be awarded a 10 , because no one really could have done better imho. Cool custom textures , amazing build , total immersion , flawless gameplay , ubersmart bots. However , the nasty looking roots of that giant tree won't suit anyone's taste , and the framerate might drop if you don't have the needed rendering power (didn't have any serious issue on my poor athlon 800 though)

well, shag a mapper!!! i must be missing summit here?
this map is not that good. Distance between flags is way to long, the flow (what flow) is terrible, 50 diff ways to bases WHY? and the textures, it must be said aren't that great, infact in places damn right nasty! outside more so. to much has gone into trying to make it look good and gameplay forgotten about. sorry i just dont like it, it dont light my coals.The 3 is for the effort:P thats my view anyways.

I just played this one for the first time last night, and I was very impressed. This is a very nice map, both from a visual and gameplay perspective. I like the way the variety of paths flow together well; it's easy to find your way around, even if you've never played it before. Very solid map overall. Too bad there aren't more like it.

Amazing map!!!Why are you reading these comments? You have to play it to understand how good it is.
Don't look at the screenshots, dont read these reviews, JUST PLAY THE MAP. It's amazing!!! There's a few minor messed things like the waterfalls and the fact that I couldn't find the tree o' life (needs some different textures to make it stand out, if kind of looks like the rest of the map) but that don't really matter when you have a map this amazing! I d/led over 50 new CTF maps in one night and I just basically forgot about all of them when I got to this map... this chews up all my time now!!! I can't think of enough things to say about this GET IT.....GET IT NOW....STICK IT TO THE MAN

When this map first came out it was PERFECT FOR ITS TIME. Some of u think the map isn't polished enough,i agree it could have been polished a little bit more, however, it had to be released when it was ready and ready it sure was. This review is based on my experience with this map back in the days when there was only one Unreal Tournament.

Another classic UT99 CTF experience. The icing on the cake is the construction of the terrain...

This is one of those maps that makes you fly around for a half hour before playing it.

This map is a study in UT classic terrain design. I have not seen any other terrain maps come even remotely close to this one. Can be a bit hard to score sometimes as are all maps where you have to make a mad dash across a fairly open area, then up some steps to the flag. If you don't have enough health left to hammer. Bots are pretty damn good, and I am very impressed with the custom textures and little custom bits like the vehicles strewn about. I maight have liked more opportunity to get from bottom to top, but all in all, one of the best UT CTF maps ever made.

I like this map a lot. It has good graphics and good gameplay. IT IS SOOOOOO FUN TO PLAY WITH FIGHTER JETS. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE BOOM!

It would be cool if there was a monster like in the previous ones but thats okay. It is very fun to explore the various ways and use them. I LOVE ASYMETRICAL BASES, THEY MAKE IT MUCH BETTER!!!!!!!!
This map is truly amazing!


P.S. The bots are really good at sniping, you have been warned. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
