If you love Realism, This map will get you to sit-up and beg for more!

Hatched in the evil brain of Judas Sinn comes this tribute to the mapper Angelheart.

Well, something like that it says in the readme...



So what is all the hub-bub bud?, This map basically covers a city block and has a
working Underground, to us state side fraggers that would be a Subway. I didn't see any bums
sleeping about, but was pleased to encounter BOTs even on a light player load down there.
As far as the "city" part of the map, it's fairly complex without serious slowdowns.
Something that is difficult to do with the Unreal engine and is just the kind of maps most authors avoid. Dogtown is very well realized, with great custom graphics and a keen eye for structural detail without going overboard with the polys. The pic doesn't do it justice, once you enter the map you will be struck by its scale. Player proportions are adhered to in the architecture and so is the lighting applied with equal precision. A new UMX file accompanies the map titled "quickbro".
Well if you've taken typing , this would be short for the imfamous phrase, if not, it sounds cool anyway, the music too, well more of a soundtrack when you get down to it.



So with all this good stuff, what makes this dog bad?


BOTs do get stuck every once in a while making for easy marks, and they haven't the finesse to sit-n-snipe. I found by scoping from the roof tops and keeping a fresh T/L beacon by the Redeemer it was easy to smoke the compitition. The wide open areas made it a chore to minigun war with any success, and when tracking down frags, it was tipically better to wait for something to come along. Weapon layout and Item placement felt good, except one ally with armor and a minigun. The distances also rendered most weapons ineffective unless you could pin your target into a corner. BOTs overcame this by closing on their victims, so don't "stand and fight", run away and double back when you can absorb the heat. I couldn't find any invisibility, in a map like this against humans, this would be a serious advantage. The map lends itself to Team Deathmatch rather nicely so if given the choice go for this option. Free-for-all fraggin can get tedious and more of luck game coming upon your opponents from behind if you venture forth. With higher player loads, luck tends to be on the BOTs side for winning the match.


In conclusion, Dogtown is my kind of town. What can I say, I like to snipe. If you Team play this map, you'll find a few "sweet" spots that help take a bite out of enemy's shorts while they sniff about for something bigger than an Enforcer. Somebody mentioned a "realism" mod would go good with this map, like Infiltration or Counter Strike, I would agree but can't recommend any first hand.

I agree with the review, but have one problem. If this is inspired by Angelheart's DMDowntown, where is the porn shop???

Pretty friggin awesome, especially with other wepaons mods....lag gets bad though :-/

this is a good map with a keen eye for detail.if it is a tribute to angelheart then he did a great job though after playing the downtown map it somehow feels incomplete without the access to shops or tunnels.

Definitly an awsome map! The detail is some of the best I've ever seen, not to mention that sloppy note to Pagan Pete. The ONLY problem I have with it is that the subway drags you along instead of killing you on impact, which would have been way more realistic.

Great map! The only problems are the lag / poor visuals? Running on a system with dual PII450's, 512MB Ram, and a Geforce2 GTS card, the map at times gave me a slight head ache due to the poor visuals.

8 in original UT but if you play it in Infiltration yo have a kickass map. If you like realistic maps,grab this one.

Very good map, I always like Judas Sinn's sense of atmosphere, and the ability to realize a place.

Terrible framerates, good looks for the most part, and good gameplay.

A keeper that will stay on my hard drive...the subway is an excellent touch, but where's the sound fx? add that, and reduce the weapon availability and it would get a 10!

Wonderful layout, and the canal makes for some fun ambushes.

I love this map!! only one problem --- when you get hit by the train, it pushes you along the track and kills you when you reach the end of the tunnel rather than just kill you on impact. I give this map a 9.

Angelheart's Downtown was unplayable, so I donwloaded this one. My god, this is the best urban themed map I've played for months !!!! I like to shot a bot and make it all in front of the train n then see how is smashed!

Not one of my favorite maps, doesnt seem that realistic. Myself I like open maps, and this one was a bit bunched together and i didn't like it. Thats just my oppinion.

I hate the flow of the map. The thing with Urban map IMO is that they are unrealistic, because there are no ppl in the streets or cars.... Makes them boring

But you can have some fun times on this map

OMG this map 0wnz j00!

I really like everything, well laid out, lots of snipe points, huge map, runs well even on low end machines.

The only things which keep it from a higher score are the train pushing instead of killing you, the inability to get on the train, and the fact that most buildings cant be entered. But all in all a freakin wicked awesome map. Lots of ambush potential and deep shadows really set the mood, along with the grafitti.

OMG THIS OWNZ J00!!!

f0rkin sp4kin excellent work
i givin u the ol thumbs up

only one thing..the train goes one way, then comes back the opposite direction..on the same track...but..shouldnt it be going the same way each time? :P theres a way to do it, just cant think how right now, also..to add to the realism, how bout having the train damage the player say..95 damage? :P or kill the player when he gets hit by it, and have the central electric rail which gives the player electric shocks..lol

Another fave sniper map, but I'm a little surprised at how much people liked the eyecandy here - I thoguth it was one of the weaker elements of what is otherwise a really enjoyable map to play.
It really does need to be played on-line though as even with bots on godlike it's not tricky to dominate.
Not as big as some other city maps, being a bit smaller than the ever classic dark city, and can be a bit more frantic and nervy than other sniping based maps.

Nice textures and a cool industrial-y music track. The train is quality!
