Mappers, I am very excited to introduce my new map, "The Temple". This map is an experimental arena map, unlike anything I have made before. The map is fully enclosed and indoor. The map takes place inside a temple, and it was created almost entirely from objects with very little terrain forming. The map also takes place at night, and was my first try at using the lighting tools. With the item limit and the navmesh limitations, this was a challenging project.

The story is that Pagan Min's men uncovered an underground temple deep within the mountains of Kyrat, and they intend to pillage the temple for all its treasures. But the Golden Path has sent you to stop the army from gutting the rich history of the country (or maybe the Golden Path just wants the treasure for themselves). Stop these intruders.

Stay moving! The map plays very arcade-y and is a lot of fun. Video and screenshots below. Enjoy!

Man, not only a cool video, but a really cool looking map! Now I wish I could play this on Xbox One! The concept, detail and use of the lighting was really well done. Great looking map! :D

I have some screenshots of the zombie variation of the map below, "The Temple - Zombies". This was meant to be a fun map for the less serious players. Basically, it takes the same core foundation of the map, but makes a few changes. The layout was ever so slightly tweaked to make the section around the gold statue more accessible. Also, all crates, lights, and other military paraphernalia were removed and replaced with candles, sacrifices, and other scary stuff. I tweaked the ambient light to seem more otherworldly. I gave the player infinite ammo, but hide much of the player's HUD. Finally, I placed the ever-so-important double barrel shotgun and revolver at the tree. Don't miss these items!

Hey Manlius10A!

Absolutely fantastic looking maps, your use of lighting is exceptional and the two variations look superb.

Really well done!

Already I played this map yesterday. I also took 3 attempts to overcome it. :D
And I played on the same difficulty that I do in my maps, hard. I guess all we are easier our own maps. :)

That said. I love how your maps are gaining in realism and detail, things like that ground has shifted part of the temple walls, the location of the initial enemies and their role.

It baffles me a bit when on a map, enemies appear in areas already seen and apparently closed. I know, it's not easy to find an alternative to this in certain types of maps.

I liked the size and concept of the temple, which at times has evoked me to classics like Doom, and even the first Tomb Raider.

Keep it up. Excellent map. I have pending play version with Zombies

There is actually a limit to the amount of lights you can add, and of course, I maxed it out. It was a paltry limit, I couldn't even add candles once I reached it (and I still had some budget left).
