    Tower Assault

    Unseen in any recent UTs they are though
    the greatest form of survival deathmatches.
    The maps must be set up like some babylonian
    tower where the players can advance to the top.
    Therefore all must spawn on the grounds before the
    actual tower and then climb it to reach the best
    pickups at the very top. Also team matches were
    more than suitable and all this in the most simple way.
    This kind of maps combine survival and deathmatch
    in a absolutely best playability implementation.
    Im already planning some map for UT99 where
    one huger tower be surrounded by many smaller
    and ruined ones in Fallout style. The basement
    shall somehow be flooded and i must make some
    protos for the smaller towers in order - difficult.

    latest (insane) ideas:
    (btw. - i could make my <100buckish ebay pieces quad-
    core finally run by just renewing the graphiccards silver paste) and
    the above tower could be turned into some scraper skeleton situated
    on some desert planets desert oasis (of insanity) completely with the cages of insanity
    which once house too hungry beast raptors and twice have the ultimate weapons of choice
    plus below a megabunker (of insanity) and all this only required some kind of todo
    and simplification plus game elements optimisation plan kind of


    or comparably it could be the skeleton of a (insane) islamamo
    tower mosque in mexican desert to enable even more weirdness

    NEW IDEAS!!!
    How about a future Urban Scenario where all action
    places around towers and their flying-cars garages?!
    Like when different game developer triads fight it out the
    harder/or maybe easier way intruding their headquarters
    to steal and sabotage and maybe even to kill some bosses!
    Something like rocket snipers versus flight tanks high
    above the inpassable megacity hives.
    These inspirations mostly came from the Marvel2099
    graphic novels from back in the nineties by the way.
    Also i find it quite approprite when a true cyber gladiator
    champion also sorta feels like some marvelous super guy.
    Not to mention the potential of the entire environment
    design - rich and innovative more than only a true source
    for future warfare simulation!

    Abit Halo - abit Tribes and a whole lotta Unreal - the
    entire thang should somewhat look like this (though
    the fortification needs improvement later)!

    P.S.: The actual lift liquid
    zones in the tower shall have
    ascending healing effects!

    I got a super idea - i could try making both at once!
    Maybe this way even they could not need to be updated.

    After a long meditation about the towers environment
    im still unsure what is better - a sand planet where crystals
    grow and with lava bassins or more the prehistoric jungle scenery.
    Btw - the entire thing shall also receive a moat filled either with
    water or lava. Opinions are appreciated!

    Btw. - how about adding the above tower to this sort of great fortress at all?
    (Good level design definitively gonna take a loot planning time!)

    Now - months after the imagination of the tower im remembering a once planned map of the Afghanistan warzone came back in my mind!
    The plans were to create a giantic playground which reflects any aspects of the actual country with things like - ruins - volcanic crater
    fields - mountains with caves and of course many military stuffs like trenches bunkers ect. Now after abit dreaming of this map i found it
    could advance to a extraterrestric planetary scenery and i could add in the tower from above - the planet Afghanis idea is born!
    When im also adding elements from my once planned map mountain fort monsterhunt and many great action stuffs like airstrikes - mines
    - vehicles - animals - destryable ruins and many more in a perfectionized way in terms of design but also gameplay the map could become
    UT crossing a legendary work which servers as ideal for maps in coming actual games!

    Its so weird (chickle) but posting always brings improvement ideas!
    So i now found a great way to once segment the long fluid way
    and also to make the rooms more interesting and arena-like (liandri)!
    Simply that way that the players must leave the fluid under a ramp in
    order to get on it to enter the next - lots of bridges and stuffs going there.
    The perfect opportunity to make the design even more defense oriented for
    the higher positioned.

    After long "meditations" now the interior drawed as sidecut.
    Next i can begin to bring the top levels on raster papers!

    P.S.: The waved lines shall show some sort of liquid
    zone (like e.g. in dm-healpod) where players can swim
    up or down - a substitute for elevator.

    P.S.2: Ideas and critiques are welcome - especially
    for the second top room which should be better
    defendable - maybe also there elevators instead of fluid?!
    I think the problem ther is the symmetry only with the four ways.

    The first rough silhouette shaped with
    loads of rubbing/erasing old lines.

    Here already some older concepts from back when
    the map was originally planned as MonsterHunt map.
    Im still keeping this in mind but imo. more important
    is the deathmatch/teamdeathmatch setup.
    Pay attention to the cool ramp shape at bottom
    level where attacker from outside be hindered to
    use the towers dead ankle to hide from above fire!
    Although this is (not) only authenticy design since
    im planning to not add closing doors as seen in all
    original UT DM maps.

    P.S.: One of the coolest things of this map be how
    players who die need to again run the long and
    dangerous ways to the action - similar like in Mh.
    Who didnt read the posts above - all players and
    bots spawn at the map borders from where all run
    to the tower positioned in the center!
