Dark Aether 1.0.0

Post by 002 » Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:42 pm

A long time ago, I released Dark Aether 0.9 as a beta, mainly, to see if there were any bugs when playing with real people. There were, and the ones that I caught were all fixed.

Without further ado, let the fireworks begin.

Version 0.9 -> 1.0.0 (current)
  • Fixed Quake III Rocket Launcher not working correctly on multiplayer servers.
  • Added invisible ladders.
  • Slightly balanced player spawns.
  • More secret teleporters!
  • Removed* old secret teleporters.
Version 0.0 -> 0.9 (initial)
  • New Map. BSP is from Assault on the Control Room.
  • Revamped BSP to be more lifelike (instead of a barren ice prison)
  • Swapped banshees for gun turrets.
  • Each team has 4 machine gun hogs, 4 rocket hogs, 4 gun turrets, 4 ghosts, and 1 scorpion.
  • Added/updated Quake III Rocket Launcher. Replaces fuel rod gun. Sorry, guys, but you'll have to fight over the rocket launcher if you want to be a noob.
  • New teleporters.
  • Every single Blood Gulch spawn has been removed.
  • Compatibility with all gametypes
Quake III Rocket Launcher (as of 1.0.0):

Quake III Rocket Launcher....Rocket Launcher
- No reloading..........................2 rocket clip
- 198 rockets max...................8 rockets max
- Medium rate of fire...............Slow rate of fire
- Potential 1-shot kill...............Almost certain 1-shot kill
- Made for stunts......................Made for noobs
- Custom firing sounds...........Normal firing sounds
- Simple textures (for now)....Normal textures
- Quake logo............................"Warning: This button does nothing" decal
- Hidden spawn location........Out in the open; feel free to pick it up

The Map (as of 1.0.0):

You may download this map from HaloMD, which is usually faster, since it's a patch and not the whole map. In the case, though, that MacGamingMods is down, then you won't be able to see this link in the first place, so you can't use the link below if the servers go down. Maybe you're afraid that Big Brother will be watching you if you download it from HaloMD. Hell, maybe nil put evil robots in the HaloMD download that will turn your computer into a mindless evil ninja robot zombie that shoots laserbeams. Whatever the case, you can also download the entire map from my Dropbox. Since HaloMD maps are pretty much the same format as Halo PC or Mac maps, I'll provide a link for you people who want to play it with your PC friends easily. Just use the Halo PC/Mac link and replace bloodgulch.map with the zipped map, and you should be good to go.

This is a very big map.

I try to not waste too much space. I've added scenery, weapons spawns, and other cool stuff. There are even some secret ladders that you can find. It seemed to be pretty popular on Colosseum, having several CTF games in a row at 8+ players.
