Map description[]

Shane's Nali temple map is explored further in this multileveled arena. There are four recognizable areas in this map and several side areas.

First, there is the Outer area, located at the very top of the map. As its name implies, it takes place outside of the temple, at the entrance of the map. This area contains a lake holding a very powerful weapon.

The North area of the temple can be divided into three floors: North Upper, North Center, and North Lower. North Center is connected to the Outer, North Lower, and Central areas of the map, by use of a cornered passage, a door, and a vertical hole respectively. It is composed of several ledges and wooden bars overlooking the North Lower area, from which players can shoot their enemies. Also, players can fall from the North Upper area via a T-shaped hole.

The North Lower area can be accessed from the Outer area via a hole in the lake, the Center area via the aforementioned West vertical hole, and two ramps from the Central area. It is composed of a small pool and some ammo.

The North Upper area can be accessed from the South area via a teleporter (whose area also ends in a waterfall to the lake of the Outer area) and from the Center area via some stairs (the entrances are located at the lowest point of the spiral staircases to the upper bridge). This area also has a small window overlooking the Outer area, right above the Temple Entrance. The lower end of the T-shaped area ends in a ledge overlooking the Central area.

The Center area is the area with the most connectivity, as it is connected to both the South and North areas in their entirety. The area itself is a large room with a wooden bridge crossing over it. Aside from the aforementioned North connections, a series of stairs connect the area with the South Upper area, while the Nali mouth-shaped entrance connects this area to the South Lower level. Players can also access the upper bridge from the spiral staircases. The connections among levels and areas in this part of the map can be a bit complex at first to less familiar players.

Finally, the South level is connected to the Center area via a few entrances, and to the North Upper area via a teleporter. The area itself consists of a series of ramps and a large water pool holding the aforementioned teleporter at its lowest point, right below a platform.

Walkthrough[]

PC (Retail/GOTY)[]

"The Nali, an ancient race of four armed aliens, constructed this hidden temple to worship their Gods in secrecy when they were oppressed by the vicious Skaarj aliens. Unfortunately for the Nali, the Skaarj eventually located the temple and systematically slaughtered every inhabitant."

Tips and tricks[]

  • Catch players who are going for the Shield Belt with a well-placed shock combo.
  • Players in the outer area are vulnerable to sniping from either the upper window or the mountains.
  • Pushing players into the water pool will allow you to finish them off quickly with either the Pulse Gun or the Sniper Rifle present there.
  • The Flak Cannon and Bio Rifle can be used on the spiral staircases for quick spam attacks.

Secret areas[]

  • In order to reach the two Sniper Ammo boxes hidden in the Outer area, a weapon jump must be performed, preferably with an Impact Hammer, from the top of the waterfall. These boxes, logically, cannot be reached by bots.

Trivia[]

  • The backstory of the map (being placed on Na Pali) is closely tied with how it appears in the GOTY ladder, since, besides the player, the map only contains Skaarj Hybrids.
  • The map was considered for both Unreal and Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali as part of their campaigns.

Location bugs[]

  • There is only one area with zone properties (the outside area), and it isn't named. This was fixed for OldUnreal's v469 version, however, in previous versions, these unnamed areas can be given names. To do this, create a text file called DM-ArcaneTemple.int in the System folder with the following content:
[WaterZone0]
ZoneName="Top of the cascade"

[WaterZone1]
ZoneName="Cascade current"

[WaterZone2]
ZoneName="Redeemer Lake"

[WaterZone3]
ZoneName="Ramps area (swimming)"

[ZoneInfo0]
ZoneName="Outside"
