Treacherous Intentions by Ubernator on August 8, 2004

Capture and Hold Capture the Flag Volcanic Clear Night

Shi Draconis Alpha has been freed from the Horde invasion, but a splinter group of the Pact threatens the Diamond Sword's hold on the planet. Only a showdown over the periphery tower can determine who will control Shi Draconis Alpha after the war.

I have put a lot of time and effort into Treacherous Intentions, in every aspect I can think of in a server-side map. For some time, I had the idea of creating an epic battle on the 5th training mission terrain and creating a very playable "lava" type map.

This map features the famous periphery tower as a capturable objective. I rebuilt the tower from scratch (I cleared out all the objects from the map anyway) and changed it quite a bit. I added my own FF block, creating enemy-pass bridges. This important objective could lead to some very interesting gameplay tactics...

The two floating main bases sit across the lava lake from one another. I made them quite accessible from the ground (not too high). The flags sit on floating platforms just above the ground in front of each base. Vpads are attached to the lower level of each base.

Finally, I took time to check item placement and add/tweak the eye/ear candy. There is even a surprise on this map! It's pretty easy to find and you will know it when you see it.

When I made this map, I had HV in mind, but I think anybody can do their role effectively. Hope you enjoy!
