Trying to remember a "mountains of boxes" CTF map

Post by TankBeef » Wed Jul 28, 2021 1:12 am

Ok, first of all, apologies for the very vage description, don't remember a lot, but I'm pretty sure I played this map a while back. Let see if someone is kind enough to help me with this one. :D
So, i think it goes like this:
-It has to be an indoor map, but it is really big.
-Bases are diagonal from each other, flags are on top of mountains of boxes, and there are plenty of boxes, but there is sort of like a "valley", so you go down from your base, across the "valley" up to pick up the flag, down again, across, and then up to cap. Maybe there is even a "maze of boxes" in the "valley".
-Not very colorful. Green? Gray? Not sure if there is blue?
Any ideas? Maybe I even remade the map in my head. :lol2: It has been a while.

Thanks. The thing is, I don't remember "box" as part of the map name. I have a really fuzzy memory about it, I am just waiting for that screenshot to tell me how wrong I am about the details. :lol2:
I do know I played it on a server online. They probably used some flavor of instagib, which may had made it tougher to climb the boxes to cap. Don't remember much translocator, but maybe they could had been using grapple, to get across the "valley" faster. Yes, it may have been an instagib + grapple one.

Were they just plain boxes or was there any design on them? Numbers or letters maybe??

Don't remember any design, Grins, the map was very plain. If not boxes, maybe lots of walls, but they formed some "stairs", mostly to the flag, there may have been some in the " valley" too. I mean, the structures were not curved, all squares or cubes, of that I am pretty sure.

I want to let you all know that...yes!!! I found the map!!! :rock: I decided to check my old laptop, and there it was. Guess what Grins? It is a Hobi-Wan map. :lol2: CTF-Maximizer https://unrealarchive.org/maps/unreal-t ... 5ef40.html
Thanks Grins and Que for your efforts to help. :tu:
Now, checking my vague description...boy, does memory play tricks on you over time. It sure wasn't an indoors map, it is very outdoors. :facepalm: Also, not really boxes, but not very curvy either.
You do have to climb to the flag though:

And this is what I was referring to as "the valley" :lol2:

There is a lot of gray, sort of greenish, and may I thought of blue because of the sky.
And yes, the bases are diagonal from each other. The map is really fun BTW, I think I really need to play some more Hobi-Wan. The search was worth it, at least to me.

I'm actually currently editing that map.

Be advised, now that I know what you mean I think you still have the wrong map. Maximizer is a condensed version of HobiWansMaze, which is the same thing but MUCH LARGER.

Yes Grins, I downloaded it when you mentioned it in another thread. This is why I cannot believe I did not notice the similarities at that moment. :facepalm:
