Unreal Tournament 3 – Hive III Custom Deathmatch Map

Unreal Tournament 3 - Hive III Custom Deathmatch MapThis is the sequel to the popular Unreal Tournament 2004 map, Hive II. It’s built with the same game play style, using the geometric battlefield of bridges and platforms. This map delivers fast-paced 3D action, adding a few new game play mechanics to spice up the fight and to make the battles even more interesting. If you fall off a platform, you will no longer fall to your death, but into an inverted pyramid, where you can continue the gun battle while you spiral down into the teleporter at the bottom! The crowd will go wild as you are randomly teleported on top of one of the spawning chambers.

Here is a view of the Hive from the corner, where the spectators watch. Below is where the players spawn. The map is thick with gun smoke, limiting visibility.

hiveiii_geomviewThis is the center platform in the Hive. It holds the damage booster but will make you a target for every other warrior on the map!

hiveiii_centerThere are a couple sniper roosts on the map that offer a great view of your enemies and the tools needed to take them out. Unfortunately this position is also shown on the megatron in the center of the map so everyone will know you are there. It is best not to linger if you value your life.

hiveiii_sniperHere you can see the pods where new players spawn. This is a nice way to give players who are just entering the game a way to gain their bearings. On top of these pods are the portals where you will randomly appear should you fall off a platform and into the teleporter below!

Neverwinter Nights Persistent Server – Lochshire

Neverwinter Nights Persistent Server - LochshireThis is a persistent-world server for Neverwinter Nights. I ran this server and world for about two years with bi-weekly updates to the content within. Unlike Trouble in Ellishan, it is designed for many players. This is a much larger module with many more areas to explore and quests to accomplish. This module also includes much more in-depth scripting as well as containing many scripted events.

This is a large village set in a bay of Loch Shiverbite.

This is the town temple where many godly services can be found, from spells and potions to a purification from the well just outside the doors. If you are unlucky enough to fall in battle, the magic portal will teleport you back to your party leader.

Goblins, nasty little weak creatures, are often underestimated as they always attack in large groups.

The ancient temple seems to still have a bit of life left in it.
