AWE Custom maps

ok, we'll try this once again.

The CoD2 community has released 4 custom maps (converted from the SP game) as a map pack.

Silo Town
Beltot
Rhine
Train Yard

These maps are currently running on our AWE server 70.85.50.68

DO NOT AUTO-DOWNLOAD THIS MAP PACK FROM THE SERVER!

CoD2 caps auto-downloads at 15kb... if you auto-download it will take you hours to get this maps pack! Instead use the download link below, which is uncapped and can run 400+ kb.... it will download FASTER!

SORRY FOLKS, NO MORE DOWNLOAD!!!!

Until Activision/IW releases the mapping tools they promised, single player map conversions are the only option for custom maps. Members of the community took it upon themselves to do the difficult work of converting these maps so we have some fresh battlefields to play on. So all the thanks go out to them for brilliantly playing the cards they were dealt.

And of course, CoD2 lacks support for download redirection... so we request that you please, download the map pack from the link above instead of auto-downloading in game, which would most likely be a slower download for you any way.

*INSTRUCTIONS: Download the zip file and extract the file "zzz_map_pack1.iwd" to your main directory within your CoD2 installation

Re: AWE Custom maps

CoD2 has a locked download rate of 15kb, and The map pack is getting popular and the wait lines over at File Front are getting longer. So, I decided to host the file here so people can have a fast download with no wait in line. Link above is updated to point to the new faster download.

Re: AWE Custom maps

told ya it would be faster! lol

It's just pathetic how Activision/IW have crippled this game. Our server has the bandwidth to host these mod files, but the game it's self makes it impossible to do. And then they have the nerve to say it's the modding community that isn't supporting the game.

Well, only a month and a half left in Q1, let's hope they come thru with the patch they have promised.

Re: AWE Custom maps

Well, our download bandwidth usage has increased 4200% since the map pack was posted here... so I would say this map pack is a popular download on somebody else’s website. So I think we’re gonna have to nip the hotlinking in the bud. I’m more than glad to host files for players to download… but I would kind of like those players to have at least been to a [tv] server.

The file is still available for download for the time being, but only to people coming in thru this site. And if anybody has seen a link to the file here posted on someone else’s website, I would love to hear about it.
