AMC TC released! Merry X-mas!
« on: December 24, 2011, 10:00:34 PM »

The AMC TC is released!

http://msdn.duke4.net/AMC_THE_TC_V1.zip

This mammoth 8-character TC is finally ready for release, after several years of hard work. Featuring a huge range of features and effects (far too many to list here) The TC can be considered it's own game in it's right, taking story ideas from Duke Nukem as well as carrying on the storylines set in Imagination World (By myself), Oblivion (By Zaxtor) and Brave New World (By Mikko Sandt).

Featuring an episode of high-quality maps, built by myself, Rusty, Geoffrey, Highwire, Mikko and Sang. All the con coding, excluding a few parts by other coders such as DeeperThought, was by myself as well.

The AMC Squad is a paramilitary group formed by a man whose identity is unknown to all but a select few in the EDF and EAF. Using funds from both of those agencies as well as his own, he hired an old friend to track down 7 of the best and most skilled fighters on Earth. This squad was formed to tackle the most severe threats to Earth's safety, including fighting off the notorious Cycloid race of aliens. However, events soon unfold that dramatically increase the scale of conflict, and the AMC squad must soon deal with a new paranormal world that is new to even the most supernatural members of the team.

Can you fight as the AMC Squad, and take care of this threat? Will you scour the battlefield, find and aquire research and equipment and tackle the threat strategically, or just run in guns blazing? Will you choose to play as Sangluss, A warlock with great power who overcame a dark past? Or as Merlijn, the knight from Holland who wields ancient weaponry to deadly effect? Mikko, the Cybernetic leader of MS Corp industries, brings a range of deadly and hi-tech weaponry to the battlefield whereas Highwire relies only on good old fashioned guns (Preferably russian made!)

To those of you who played Imagination World and beat episode 4, if you copy the iw_complete.amctc file into the data directory in your AMC TC folder you'll unlock the 1911 and Jackhammer from IW for use when you play as James in the AMC TC :)

Please note that for the best experience, play this in Classic mode, Polymost does have support with widescreen functionality but Classic is what the vast majority of the team designed it in. Polymer is not supported.

Maybe someone wants to map for it and the included Mapster32 is guaranteed to work.

Wrote a review this morning before the rest of the family woke up. The time crunch and James' detailed description didn't make my job very easy.

In any event, the review doesn't do this TC justice because it's that damn good

The best TC ever.Sure more than Starsheep troopers.

I've not finished it yet but the realisation is fuckin' good.Never seen that.
I'm just a pretty sick than it's included to mod section.You cannot compare this to WGspace or something else.

And the place of this topic is not right.

Sometimes i can't pick up the evidences and this game suffers from huge maps.
But it's ok.

You only pick up evidence the first time round - if you picked it up, then died or something than it's already been 'stored' so you won't take it the next time :)

I never get used to how good the maps are. They're huge, they're detailed, they each use their own individual textures so they're unique and give the TC huge variety. And the atmosphere and ambiance is truely amazing. Each level absolutely nailed the atmosphere it was going for, plus extra.

Occasionally I get the urge to make a map for this, but even before I can open mapster, I remember how good the original maps are and get scared off.

Don't let that stop you! I'd love to see even just one usermap for the TC, it'd make even more of the work worth it :)
