Say Hey to the Stuffed Cats Inc. Sasquatch Brothers...
So, this version of the map is my answer to the problem. I have added two Titans...from the original game of Unreal...They're in a shiny new set of snow-coated skins I made for them. For those of you that never played Unreal, the Titans were the number two Boss Creature, second only to the Skaarj Queen. I have disabled the Ranged Attack mode on these Titans, so they will not be throwing pieces of the map at you. They do have their full Melee capabilities, however, and if you land on the platform, you are most likely going to be toast! I've also limited the range of their Stomp effect. You'll figure out what that is when you try to run around on the lower platforms in the pipe. On the upper decks, it has little or no effect.
Everything else in the map is identical to the original and both Xmas maps will remain in play throughout the holiday season. The zip file only contains the .UNR file. If you want the .UMX...music...file on your machine, you will need to download both Xmas maps.

No more HOM errors in these mountain tops...
The Blue Base "Backdoor" error has been closed...
Aside from that, Noork's has also always been one of the most fun maps we've ever played on the Dead Cat server. The most serious rub has been the wildly unbalanced nature of the critter. For those that are not familiar with it, it was so badly balanced that for matches we would play it twice and change colors to ensure some fairness. When Chronos tried to fix it, his approach was to open up the Blue Base. I went the opposite way and closed down the Red Base.
There are far too many changes to list them all, but along with the alterations to the Red Base, I fixed the cheat in the Blue Base's entry-way, balanced all the weapons and ammo, and also added Miniguns for all you Minigun-Ho's out there. I tweaked the Bot A.I. on both sides, so the play is far more even than before. I also added a few Bot Sniper Points...Just in case there are not enough Human Snipers running around in your game...:-)
I noticed that several people on the server were having a rough time figuring out exactly what I had done to the Red Base. The composite image below shows the 4 major changes in the structure. The Roof Hatch takes exactly 1 second to open or close, and stays open for 4 seconds.

Now, just how badly do you want that Shield Belt?
These Skaarj Blades and gibs show they can be killed...
