not in the lack of strength,
not in the lack of knowledge,
but rather in the lack of will.

______________________________
We've hit a new record regarding number of map updates. This change list contains 14 map updates!
______________________________

New map: Albatross!

Image

Author: Ryan Brucks
Converted to Monster Assault by: DW>Ant

From the ancient days of the Tournament comes a classic 1on1 arena, renovated and redesigned to once again mediate in the fate of bloodshed. Do not be fooled by its ostensible simplicity, for those who command design will always dominate in this arena.

This map was originally built as a tutorial for the monster spawner. The tutorial became obsolete when the new monster spawner was built. This map was already converted to Monster Assault, might as well put this map on the server.



New map: Cirban!

Image

Author: Evan 'acc' Miller
Converted to Monster Assault by: Chris

Moreeee...
Get ready to increase your kill-count. Or your death-count.

This scenario recreates the Rising Rebellion of 2274, on the planet Lunaer IV.
Miners, brutally opressed by their ruling overlords, staged a coup d'etat on the city of Cirban under the banner of the Rising Class (RC).
By quickly disabling Cirban's power and communications center, city officials were never able to send off distress signals.
Without aid from the sister planets, Lunaer I-V, Cirban fell swiftly and surely into the hands of the RC forces.



New map: Mythology!

Image

Author: Frase
Converted to Monster Assault by: Chris

I do not believe in myths. DO you?

In the days of Atlantis, a mythical creature was solidified and buried deep within the mountains.
Many centuries later, a force tunneled into the rock, building defensive tunnels along the way.
Disguised by the ancient surface, attackers were fortunate to find the location just in time to launch an attack on the project in hope of preventing the forces intentions of awakening the creature.



New map: Outpost!

Image

Author: ZedeX
Converted to Monster Assault by: Chris

One last mission. One last takeover. Location: Planet Z. Life-expectancy: Low.

The invaders reached your Outpost on Planet Z and stopped the communication between the Outpost and the Headquarters.
Now we can't get any information about the enemy.
Your mission is to re-establish the communication.



New map: Tarydium Mine!

Image

Author: SithNight
Converted to Monster Assault by: Chris

It shall not fall in the wrong hands. At all costs.

During the war against the Skaarj Tarydium Mines were high priorities, the Tarydium crystals were a main source for weapons and power. After the war most of the mines were destroyed to prevent any further mining of Tarydium as well as to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands. Since some of the mines were privately owned a few of the owners refused to shut them down because of the high profit they got off them. They were warned, however, that there is a possibility they may be found by another race, be killed, and have their Tarydium stolen. Such a scenario was never a concern to the owners but to their surprise it became a reality. The Hellions have invaded a mine on the rocky shores of Silex Island. Your goal is to infiltrate the Tarydium mine and destroy the main power generator to prevent any further mining of Tarydium.



Castle is back!
The map roster cycled through 6467 maps since Castle was last played.

Image

Author: Andreas 'LuckyStrike' Koehler
Converted to Monster Assault by: Chris

Castle returns!!! And this time the monsters are expecting you.

Can you infiltrate the castle tower and stop the monsters data transmission?



Heated Escort is back!
The map roster cycled through 58308 maps since Heated Escort was last played.

Image

Author: DW>Ant

Forced away from your hometown, your squad crosses through this desert to unite your team with the Alliance several miles to the North. During your journey, you found the Red Valley Passage. A tribe of barbarians uses this passage for hunting. Going around will delay you for too long. With few options, your squad agreed to cut through the Red Valley.

good consideration making it related to damage.(who got this idea??? :slipssealed: )
from testing, its impossible to estimate when EnhancedArmor breaks.
you should consider making a HUD for it.
ps: 4k dmg absorbed/lvl is low.

[quote="DW_Ant"]

good!

[quote="DW_Ant"]
Medkits' threat value is reduced by 50%.[/quote]
good enough.
a better improvement would be to relate it:

Converted to Monster Assault by: DW>Ant

Upon returning to the grand canyon, you found hostile forces settling in the canyon once more. This time, you sense a darker energy amidst. The plan is to put an end to this curse, and flood the city once more.

for those having trouble connecting to the server, since there is a problem with the re-direct server (which is expected to be restored shortly), you can get the required files from here:

[mod=DW_KarmaKat]I've removed the link. Redirect is now working properly. Do follow Christmas' advice about removing any files you might have installed manually. There will be conflicts with any future updates to Monster Evo and you won't be able to connect until you remove the files involved. Thanks for temporarily hosting that stuff Christmas![/mod]

these are all the files of the latest update 14-jun-2015 (which cant be found at the re-direct)

Installation:
Just place files as is into the respective folders.

note: Once re-direct is fixed, it would be smart to remove these files (you got from here),
and automatically re-download these files from the re-direct.
These files here are safe to be used until next server update takes place.
Once next server update takes place, these files will cause you not to be able to connect to the server.

  • Skeletal Mage health and damage increased by 50% (this applies for champions, too).
  • Summoned Champions now have client-side hit sounds.
  • Every 30 seconds, the summoned champions will automatically be notified how much damage they need to do to be resurrected.
  • Mechanic's class perk will not retaliate against friendly fire.

but rather in the lack of will.
