It's about to go down!

We're proud to release this brand new port of the deathmatch map Deck 16 to Aliens versus Predator, ported from Unreal Tournament. It was a collaboration between SacredAnarchy, Cracco, and Olde to make this a reality. Deck 16 is one of our favorite maps and one of the most iconic and famous deathmatch maps. This version received our personal touch and care to best transfer to AvP, refining it particularly for fast and frenetic yet smooth and optimized multiplayer matches, allowing for strategies for all species, and also being welcoming to new players yet maintaining a high skill ceiling for competitive players. The map's texturing is heavily borrowed from the original map (while also being improved in certain areas) while lighting and sounds were rebuilt. The lighting was created with the game's default gamma setting in mind (roughly one-third of the full gamma bar), but was also optimized to look reasonably good on the highest gamma setting, for those who are so inclined to play that way. In spite of its size, it works for small, medium, and large sized groups. Destroying the lights in a certain hallway may yield an advantage to alien players, but the main hangar will remain lit up. Feel free to download the map from either link below. If you need help with installation, please reach out to Cracco, Sacredanarchy, or Olde on the official AvPC discord. Thanks and see you on the battlefield!

Good news, everyone. Olde and I are proud to release a brand new, substantially revised version of our UT conversion map, Deck 16. We've updated this map with a functioning teleporter (the first of its kind in any AvP map), deadly pits of toxic acid, a releasable grated floor, new platform lifts, rebalanced item placements, new and improved lighting, texturing, sounds, bug fixes, greater optimization and stability, and many, many more improvements to the finer details.

When we first ported the map, we had ambitions that we weren't yet able to realize, but now that we have much more experience with mapping and the AvP editing tools, we were able to make things like the teleporter and acid pits a reality. We hope you have fun and enjoy fragging on this map.
