Looks like Santa has heard my cries and has given me a nice G-Force 3. So, looks like EEPROM is back making Tribes2 maps again, oh boy!
I would like to start off by thanking Tokrz for creating the incredible skybox artwork in this map. Tokrz is a true artist with incredible talent and this sky really made the finishing touches for this map. Thanks Tokrz, this bong load is on me!
Now, here is the low-down on this Race map. Basically this is a teaser map for a bunch of other maps to follow. It’s simply a huge single mountain with a road cut into its side that winds around it all the way to the top. This would be more like an off-road rally style race map, which means there are no banked turns and the road is kind of rough in spots. Never the less, quite fun racing a Grav-Bike up it or any other ground vehicle for that manner. The trick is to race up it and then back down as fast as you can while trying to stay on the road. I have added road flares to help guide you up the mountain. Tunnels, trees, rocks, huge ledges, snow, fog, huge rock arches and nasty turrets are some of the things you will encounter on your way up the mountain. It’s fun to race it by yourself but even funner with a bunch of friends, and harder too. I especially enjoy running my friends off the steep cliffs, LOL! Once you get to the top you make a roundabout and head back down the same road with a rocket chasing you. I have also given full vehicle support so you can race anything you wish. Currently there is no supporting mod or official rules for these maps (that I know of) so feel free to make up your own rules. One rule I have is if you fly off the road and slide down the mountain you must return to the starting line and go from there. Same goes if your bike is destroyed or if you die.
Keep an eye open for a Siege map and a CTF map soon to come out using this same mountain road idea.
Back in the saddle again!!!!!!!
