"Deep in the heart of the Ocean of Dunes, a small oasis of civilization welcomes the weary traveler. Any who step through the gates of the Temple of Aswan are welcome, though none may leave without taking part in the trials. The Anubans have used the trials as a means to test their prospective competitors for hundreds of years. Success means fame and glory, failure means the scavengers pick the meat from your bones. Are you really that thirsty?"

Tips and tricks Edit

  • Using the Low Gravity mutator when playing this map will allow you to jump from one domination point to another by either using the central platform as a stop or by dodgejumping. It will also allow you to jump to the point from below by using the platform again, or by jumping on the wall near the place you appear after teleporting from the spawn place. Although it looks easy to take the points in bot matches then, but bots with Translocators can counter the low gravity setting easily.

Trivia Edit

Author's notes Edit

"DOM-Aswan was inspired by a two week trip to Egypt, I couldn't help myself, I had to use all the visual goodness and apply it in a level. It was fun to go through my photo's all the time for inspiration. The end result is a mix of many temples and tombs combined, but primarily inspired by the temple of Edfu. This temple lays between the city's Aswan and Luxor.

For the gametype Double Domination you need to hold two points for 10 seconds without the enemy touching them. Usually the points were more then 10 seconds away from the spawn points, which made it hard to come back if you died and the count down started. I created the map with trick jumps in mind so you can make it to the point in about 8 seconds if you do 3 jumps just right and have no distractions on the way. Most of the powerful weapons were further out of the way, so if you truly wanted to build up a defense you had to take the longer routes.

Double dom is unfortunately not a very popular gametype, so I didn't have much feedback on this map.

I was responsible for most of the layout / meshing / lighting and bug fixing."
