    Artic Outpost

    Short Intro
    A new outpost has been created in the artic. Before the outpost could be finished, a strange disease began to spread throughout the area. The disease is now widespread, and an assault is being prepared on your position. The outpost may not be completely supplied, but you must work with what you have.

    Basic Game Info
    Game Variant- Infection (Download Outpost)
    Great for medium to big parties.
    Works fine with small parties too.
    Biast FREE!

    Looks kind of sloppy and like it could be way more strategic. And it's Arctic, not Artic.

    Armories in any game of infection always turn to the human's favor. Sorry, I'll pass on this DL.

    It looks cool, but it looks a little messy. Was it possible to make it a little more even and straight?

    Artic as in Arythemic.
    Not arctic...



    Thanks! :)

    I made most of the map where it was fine, my two helpers quickly put things together, the great wall none the less :p But some spots are meant to be 'messy' to make the situation a little more difficult to overcome. Don't forget, the story states the outpost wasn't complete yet, meaning building was not complete ^_^.

    If you read, this game is biast free. It is not unlimited ammo, you can not spawn kill, and the armory is limited. If anything, the people in the armory are the quickest to die. I made sure not to make it biast or too unfair. Try it out before you just judge off the pics, I'm tellin you, you'll like it. Every party I've hosted with many recent players and some friends, most love the map ^_^.

    LOL, thanks? :p Avalanche can be hard to forge on due to all the different terain heights, but to follow the sotryline we decided to make it a little 'messy'. There were a few merges, but for the basic idea we don't think it was completely necessary. The outpost itself is near perfect, much of the rest of the map is very strategically put together. Don't forget, the pics are going to show a main difference between the actual map and an outside view. Once in the game, it is a whole different story. I haven't receievd a single bad reviwe from any parties, even when it is played and i'm not leader, which I am proud to say. :D

    So DL it and check it out, and you will see what I mean. ^^

    Armories in any game of zombies give the humans an unfair advantage, the map is a little messy, but it looks cool

    LOL, everyone keeps ranting about the armory :p I'm gonna list the weapons available in the armory, and with the gameplay settings you can download, you can not camp in the armory and win. Most kills seen in the armory before death has been 2, the average is only 1. (Out of about 40 games that I have played).
    And incase you are judging off the teleport by the turret, that leads you OUTSIDE the armory. The way you get in the armory throws you in random locations. It has been set up so it is very difficult to camp in the armory.
    Thanks. DL it and see the game for yourself, it is guarenteed that you will enjoy it. :)

    Only 10% of the weapons on the map are located in the armory. (There are only about 5 weapons in the armory, with very low ammo supplies and long respawn times. The other weapons are located on the great wall, emergency post, sniper post, mini post, and a few other locations. I am 100% against biast maps. Several maps look really good, until you see that one part where it is camp and continuous zombie kill. This map is biast free, including a feature not allowing spawn killing!!! :)

    The floating towers look cool, but armories always turn out to be human suicide or a zombies hell. I would also make a v2 without the tank. With a turretman it would bet ugly, especially backed into the armory.

    Read the other posts i made!! :p THIS MAP IS BIAST FREE!
    lol

    Also, the tank is mostly the first to go, and one of the easiest to kill. It is probably one of the funnest vehicles in the map to goof off with :p

    Give it a DL and you'll see that it is not biast, and that the armory is a very weak location. Note the zombies can raid, while others wait for the humans to exit. Since it is a small armory with VERY limited supplies, it is nearly impossible to camp in the armory and survive.

    This looks like it would be easily possible for the humans to camp. There are multiple long bridges far above the ground with only one way in, and it seems that, if you add this to the armory, the humans could camp with snipers and such on those bridges for a long, long time.
