|Two New Maps You've Already Played for Two Days|

The Erida Facility is a massive and elegant construct
Diamond Samurai...big, violent, and made for low gravity
CTF-Diamond Samurai is a cross between CTF-Lucius' Pit and CTF-La Puta...Big, violent, fast and built for a low gravity environment! The outside areas allow you to make some fantastic jump moves when you have the flag and cannot use the teleporter. The Cat Bots play both maps at reasonable levels. I was able to consistently score against them...So the better players among y'all should have no serious problems with them.
If anyone finds bugs or problems with either of these maps, please let me know about them.
The zip files for both maps can be found on the "Filez" page.

|A New Map Tonight - CTF-Cadenza|
|Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Wednesday, October 10th, 5:00 PM CDT|
A plan view of the three outside zones in CTF-Cadenza
This map has areas, especially inside, that are definitely well suited for the gunfighters among you. It is not, however, another CTF-Lucius Pit][ with it's frantic action. Based on my tests with the bots, it has a pace to it that is way beyond a CTF-Templar but does not equal the smaller, tighter maps. If you don't like it, just visit another server while it's up as I think it will be around for a while.
The author of this gem is Gareth 'Ulukai' Spring and he has provided a brief back-story for the map:
Thousands of years ago, two feuding mages decided to construct two opposing magical forts as a setting in which to fight and decide once and for all who was the master of the universe. Using their magical powers, they looked into the future and realised that this accolade was destined for one called "He-Man" and his merry chums.
A little bit miffed at this, they decided instead that the fight would be over the impressive blackrock fashioned fortresses themselves, the winner securing a 9999 year lease on both forts in which to reap profits from leasing to the tourist trade, and the occasional wizened hermit. In the blue corner, was Megrim of Moonwych, skilled in the manipulation of the mind. In the red corner, was Zothan Runecaster, skilled in all that was fire.
Unfortunately, right at the beginning of the fight, Megrim attemped an old Jedi mind trick on Zothan, just as he was uttering the incatantion for a particularly cunning "Underpants of Fire" spell. Megrim's untimely interruption of the spell caused both of their heads to explode, leaving only their faithful cats in tenancy for the next 9999 years.
After enjoying an extended period in the luxourious kitty palaces, the decendents of the magical cats sold to the Liandri Corporation for a tidy sum. The smell from the long period of feline residency prohibited the Liandri Corporation from converting the buildings into a hotel, so instead they were converted for use in the Unreal Tournament.
We may have to make Ulukai an honorary Dead Cat for spinning that little yarn...:-)
