Mudpit/Carnage Combo

This plugin contains two maps ported from Myth: The Fallen Lords (MTFL), Mudpit Massacre and For Carnage Apply Within. A lot of effort has gone into making an accurate port of the maps. I believe this has been achieved as much as is possible, given the differences between the two engines of MTFL and MII_SB. With this release, I have also included 4 new meshes, for two-team play:

  • Mudpit Massacre (2-Team)
  • Mudpit Massacre (2-Team Dark)
  • For Carnage Apply Within (2-Team)
  • For Carnage Apply Within (2-Team Dark)

The flag placement has been adjusted on the two maps to be sure the focus isn't solely on the middle hill, and to maximize the fun!

  1. Faithful color, displacement, passibility for both maps. Imported all of these from M_TFL, including a high-resolution displacement map.
  2. Accurate scenery, and ambient sounds. 100% accurate scenery placement. Scenery scaled and tweaked for MIISB engine. Imported a few sounds from MTFL that were missing in the available sounds from MII_SB.
  3. Made tags to properly simulate MTFL weather conditions, including importing rain from MTFL.
  4. 100% accurate port of two units, the fir'Bolg and the Myrmidons.
  5. Properly scaled MII units to the size appropriate for M_TFL maps...including all their projectiles and body parts.
  6. Tweaked MII units to behave and fight like M_TFL units. Every aspect of each unit was considered.
  7. Added M_TFL character flavors, and Journeyman vocals to be complete as possible.
  8. Adjusted certain projectiles like Dwarf bottles, and pus packets to act more like M_TFL projectiles. In other words, you can again carpet bomb your foes on Carnage (Dark), and bottles go flying in multi-bottle explosions.

I took some liberty with the following:

  1. Included a Dorf Riot mesh for Mudpit, and a Slugfest mesh for Carnage. The Dorf Riot mesh is as close to the original one (by Havok-ise-zumi/Ripp), though I've included sacrificial pigs. The Slugfest mesh is just as you remember it, but now nobody can ruin a game of Slugfest, by choosing the wrong units.
  2. Included the Chimera fir'Bolg collection to offer smoother unit animations for the fir'Bolg.

These hopefully add to the experience, without taking any of the fun out of it.
