Viridian is one of the most underestimated maps of the Unreal Tournament bonus packs. It provides a small level, well suited for 1 on 1 action. The origional was a bit unbalanced due to the pulse/minigun ammo placement. This remake fixes that and a few other imperfections, and hopefully updates it to the current engine, without overally changing the architecture. The atmosphere has been extended from what the origional was TO ME. If you disagree, make your own. Note that the atmosphere depends on a large number of emitters (the smoke and fog effects). If your performance suffers, as it will on lower end machines (below 1ghz cpu) then it would behoove you (look it up) to turn your world detail down to normal. This will remove the emitters, and drastically help performance.
The level is optimized as much as my ability allows, but unfortunately, I can't sacrifice a beautiful environtment for the lower end machines; you will appreciate it when you upgrade.
If you like what you see, drop me a line, or hunt me down at the ATARI forums. I have an under-developed super ego that could use some random compliments and excesive fan mail. I have attenion-!@#$%d this map as much as humanly possible, but more compliments are always welcome.
