Phoenix Mission Pack 2: The Blue Mountains

EDIT, 11SEP2017: Released!Download

Hey, folks! So I actually finished this pack in February but I had a lot going on and was unable to add the finishing touches.

There are 12 maps total in this pack, two of which are cutscenes.

The pack is currently not compatible with coop play as it has cutscene maps. Will be releasing the coop-enabled version without cutscenes here in the next week.

-------------------
General Information
-------------------

Phoenix Mission Pack 2: The Blue Mountains
By: 'Unpunished'
Play Time: Roughly 45-60 minutes.
Ideal Player Load: 1-4

--------------
Brief Overview
--------------

-You are a member of Phoenix Security Group. Your organization has been contracted by a human survivor in the Blue Mountains region on Na Pali to assist in eradicating the mercenary presence near him.

-Your primary objectives are as follows: seal a Skaarj mine that the mercenaries have reopened, find out what happened to a team sent by the client to scout out a Nali fortress, and assault a mercenary research facility.

-The first map in the pack is 'NaShena'. From there, you will receive information on your mission.

------------
Screenshots
------------

Na Shena Village: Receive your mission.


Flooded Caverns: Nearing the Skaarj mine, you reach a series of caverns deep underground.


Krekkjal Mine: An old Skaarj mine that has been long abandoned, until the mercenaries reopened it. Seal it for good.


Nevod Mountain Pass: Reaching a narrow mountain pass, you must now proceed to the old Nali fortress to accomplish your second objective.


Serasac Passage: You must move through a passage in the mountains that takes you near a memorial to the Nali rebellion, and towards the mercenary base.


Mercenary Research Facility: Arriving at the mercenary base, you must now accomplish your third objective - eradicate any and all opposition!


------------
New Features
------------

-Experience fighting in the Blue Mountains region of Na Pali, with maps specifically built to resemble those of the original Unreal.
-See a little of what happened during and after the Nali rebellion by exploring such places as a rebel Nali fortress and a memorial to their victory.
-Take part in a 'Gears of War' style firefight where you must take cover from attacking baddies while returning fire.

-----
Notes
-----

-This mission pack features more streamlined gameplay than PHXMP1; it uses cutscenes and in-game messages instead of constantly returning to a hub for briefings.

-This is the spiritual successor to the very first map pack for Unreal that I ever made...probably about ten years ago. I had two objectives with this pack: capture the overall feel and atmosphere of Unreal, and use the environment and outdoorsy settings of the Blue Mountains that I created all those years ago.

-Some of these maps are extremely dark; this is not an error or oversight, they are intended to be dark to add to the atmosphere. You may need to adjust your brightness slightly if you have serious problems. However, myself and many of those who tested this pack with me have had no issues.

It's nice to still see new releases. I don't have much time to play Unreal anymore, but the view of the ship overlooking the village in the first map is pretty striking. Keep up the good work!

Played it and loved the atmosphere, I liked the extended lore with the Mercs taking over the role from the Skaarj as main oppressor after p849's departure. It was also nice to see what happened to the other stranded people, with this prisoner guy becoming the guardian of the village. I did get some vibes from Wanderer as well, which is nice Tongue

My primary complaint about the previous episode still stands though,  there is so little health! This results in me having to quicksave every encounter and quickload like 20 times before I make it through, this gets really ridiculous at the end where.... oldunreal needs a spoiler tag

So all in all a good addition to the napali-unreal universe. I can't wait for episode 3  Cool

These episodes are one of the best singleplayer experiences I've ever had in Unreal. NICELY DONE!

Very excited for the co-op compatible version of this pack! (Since these days all my play-throughs of Unreal maps and campaigns are done in co-op mode with one friend of mine...)

Any updates on the co-op version? 

Has anybody tried the current version in co-op mode?  (Do the cut scenes make it impossible to play in co-op?)

FWIW I just added this pack to my coop server. I haven't tested it so I don't know if it will all work, partially work, or just crash. I put all the maps at the top of the voting list so when you get on the server wait for the voting to load and then follow the prompt to bring it up. This way if there is a map that won't work you can skip over it and still go on.

Be warned that my server is heavily modified to be exploration. You have to try hard to die and you have access to tools and commands that let you go anywhere, do just about anything. If you want to actually 'play' this series then you totally should offline. If you just want to see the maps then by all means hop on the coop server.

Just look for my server in the coop tab.
  

I'm outta here. C ya!
