First off I'd like to say thank you to gtapoptart aka megadoug for building the original Planet Caravan. His 6 hours of labour (at least that's what he wrote) led to my 20 plus hours of modding. I saw this map and immediatly liked it. There however were numerous issues that needed attending. I hoped to convince gtapoptart to do a little cleanup but it never happened. I figured what the hell and started a basic map fix. Slowly this led to map cleanups that led to map modifications and additions. By the time I was done I was left feeling self satisfied and wished that gtapoptart would give it a whirl but to my knowledge he has yet to play this heavily modified map. Now on to Planet Caravan Arena. The story is as follows. On a tiny little planet there was a secret structure built for the entertainment of others. Men battled for glory and money, usually money, in front of these onlookers. As the High rollers gained interest they demanded premium seating to allow them to view the bloodshed first hand. To keep thier fans happy and thier pockets lined they refurbished the arena with new seating , deadlier weapons and some extra cover to make it last - a little - longer. There is an event at the three minute mark that opens up the combatent entrance area. If you're too busy killing to notice the sound then you should see the blinking red lights under the structure. This area will give you access to a couple new weapons, a single jet pack, some windows to look down on your prey and a stealthy passage across the map. If you had a play on the original Planet Caravan but it just didn't work for you I'd ask that you give this download a try. It's a nice looking map with some good gameplay to be had. As usual my gametype is Classic Slayer and the map is set up around that. Welcome to the newly refurbished Planet Caravan Arena. Here is an overview shot of the New PC Arena Here is the original Planet Caravan. How many changes can you spot? left - before, right - after. Premium seating replaces the original visual structure. The terrace has been sealed from behind and mostly covered on top. The ramp is realligned and and a pillar is added for improved gameplay. Ramps are adjusted for easier access to the lower area and a lower pillar for protection. Nobody likes to get stuck climbing a ramp. They also don't like getting shot walking across a large empty ledge. Rock cover from the opposite angle. A walkway that starts at nothing and ends at nothing, almost metaphoric. How about a Canopy? Same functions and is prettier. Quick overview shots. The new combatant entrance. Get the goods. Taunt your prey. Go get'em tiger. Sorry for the mad list of photo's . I crunched them down as best I could. Hope you like this conciderable mod.
