ST. Huldrych Causeway - File Description  

  NOTE: This file has become outdated and there's a newer / better version available.
  You can still get this file but we suggest you have a look at the NEW / UPDATED VERSION first!





Description:
This map features two long parallel bridges spanning two land areas, with a small island in between. At the island and at two other places on the bridge are places where you can switch from one bridge to the other--with some caveats..

The base areas are accessible only toward the rear of the land areas (excepting special abilities by teleporting, flying, and deep-strike units), requiring long travel between opposing bases. It means your base has an extra advantage on defense, but it also means you can really overextend yourself if you're not careful. Make use of control areas offered by relics, strategic points, and slag deposits to reinforce your lines quicker.





The dry wastes of Meribah caused some in the 907th to look longingly back at their last tour, on a world where water was in no short supply, and didn't need to be sucked out of rock.

Many of the vets well remember the battle fought on the St. Huldrych Causeway on Marinus, a long bridge joining two of the water world's smaller "land masses." A full Ork Waaaugh, stiffened by Traitor allies, managed to establish a beachhead on the northern Isle. The bridge gates held fast, thanks to the quick thinking of the local Civil Defense Authority. But it would only be a matter of time before they broke through.

The gates on the southern island were opened briefly to release two contingents of Guardsmen--the 907th Alyeskan, and their sister regiment, the 615th Knox, with a newly formed Space Marine chapter bringing up the rear. Then the gates were closed, turning the entire causeway into a gladiatorial arena, the winner determining the fate of the region...

Strange how the soggy uniforms from the ever-present rains would have been quite welcome now.

Readme File:
And here's another one! It's not as polished as I would like--had some problems with decal placement and some models, but I think the regulars will at least find the concept interesting. Playtesting the map has proven heavy fighting from first contact. Most battles will take place on the bridges and the center island, but an enemy making its way into your land does not mean the end is that near in sight.

***INTRO/FLUFF

The dry wastes of Meribah caused some in the 907th to look longingly back at their last tour, on a world where water was in no short supply, and didn't need to be sucked out of rock.

Many of the vets well remember the battle fought on the St. Huldrych Causeway on Marinus, a long bridge joining two of the water world's smaller "land masses." A full Ork Waaaugh, stiffened by Traitor allies, managed to establish a beachhead on the northern Isle. The bridge gates held fast, thanks to the quick thinking of the local Civil Defense Authority. But it would only be a matter of time before they broke through.

The gates on the southern island were opened briefly to release two contingents of Guardsmen--the 907th Alyeskan, and their sister regiment, the 615th Knox, with a newly formed Space Marine chapter bringing up the rear. Then the gates were closed, turning the entire causeway into a gladiatorial arena, the winner determining the fate of the region...

This map is for six players. Originally envisioned for 2 teams of 3, it is suitable for all game types, including Free For All.


***INSTALLATION
you do not unzip the file into your DoW directory, but your THQ directory. Hope this doesn't cause too much of a mess.

jth



***BUILD MISCELLANY
Took about 35 hours, using the Mission Editor and lots of use of GIMP 2.2 for the height map, load screen, and custom decals.

Speaking of which, the University of Tennessee logo and that of the Deutscher Fussballbund are the property of their respective owners. The author has no official connections with UT (other than being an alumnus) nor the DFB (other than being a big fan of the German Team during World Cup season).

Feel free to build upon this map, or use elements from it for your own. I only ask you give credit where it is due.

Further questions and comments can be directed to vol_907@yahoo.de


Enjoy, everyone (especially the shameless plugs for the University of Tennessee, the Deutsche Fussballbund, and the Steel Legion mod!)

Yeah, they don't really show much pertaining to the map, admittedly...they were shot mostly as raw material for the loading screen. So, I added the fifth to give everyone a fair look at the map. I know I wouldn't bother d/l'ing a map I couldn't at least get a glance at.

But at any rate, SM, you are certainly free to speak your mind. But an evaluation of the map (good or bad) would have been better.

I'll post a thread over at the relicnews forums with some better screenshots sometime this evening.

haruspex, if you're still having problems d/l'ing the map, send me an email. I'll send the map to you.

Had a guy over at the Relic boards tell me he was missing some decals. It seems two or three that I use for Causeway originally came from Gates of Ultramar. If you have that map (and it's a favorite), then you should have all the files you need and the map will look as good as I made it.

If not, go over to my thread at the Relic boards (Dawn of War Maproom) and visit my thread there. A download link to the corrected version is there.

I'll upload it here once I'm sure I've got all the bugs worked out of it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
