First off, I love the server. I'm a total noob on your server, but I played on RPG invasion servers all the time way back in the day. I've always been a YUGE fan of the RPG invasion servers.

I make maps. Maps I make from scratch are decent, and usually take me a week or so to "perfect" to my standards. That aside, I love porting good old school maps from UT99. With those it usually takes me a day or two to perfect to invasion standards.


So far I have one finished if you guys would like to take a peek at it. I'm currently working on another that I used to have on my invasion server back in 2004. The struggle comes from trying to optimize it to the current RPG invasion satore monster pack blah blah blah mutators these days.

Finished product is DM-(CC)-SkaarjCrypt. I optimized an old CTF map from UT99 formerly known as CTF-2Chickens. It also comes with its own texture pack that you will also need to download. I have provided both links below.

Questions/Comments/Criticisms are appreciated.

Edit: making this thread made me curious where I could find my other previous maps. Was able to only find a few of them :(

Heya GKCC! Thanks for the good words about Monster Mash! I'm always jazzed to check out new maps! My usual crew of testers is a bit scattered at the moment, but we will have a look at your map as soon as we can. THANKS!!

Not a problem. Making invasion maps isn't as easy as it is making a CTF or even regular/IG DM map because of all the optimizing it takes, but there are a TON of UT99 maps that are great invasion maps.

I like creating maps from scratch, but I love porting old UT99 maps and updating them. The creativity with the UT2003/2004 maps just doesn't seem to scale as well to invasion as the '99 maps did. Plus I'm a sucker for nostalgiac textures. If you look at the few mapraider maps I linked (I don't expect any of them to be added, don't worry. None of them would be good Invasion maps.) My CTF Cathedral map had some old Quake textures I snagged, and I'm legit disappointed I can't remember how I found them, because the faces in that tex pack I found were badass.
