** Game Rules **
Objective: Enter the enemy Base and make your way to where their Flag resides in the flag room. Grab it and bring it back to your Battlements. Place it on the raised square to Capture it.
Scoring: 10 points per Capture.
Other Notes: Flag carriers drop the Flag when they die. Dropped flags return to their Base after 60 seconds.
** Additional information **
Stowaway2 is my attempt to capture everything that was good in stowaway and enhance it, and try and tackle all the negative aspects of the origial map. The result is a similar sized map with the same basic layout, although some of the rooms have been shuffled about a bit. It retains the same basic connectivity of the original map, thus there are still two entrances to the flag room, and two entrances to the base plus a water entrace (without a boat this time). The lift area has received the most dramatic overhaul, with the whole area being widened to allow escaping flag carriers to avoid the air flow of the lift if it is on. I have also included a ladder to the side of the lift, which allows attackers to enter more silently from the lift area. The stairs entrance is no longer next to the respawn, and the grenade bag in the upper respawn has a much longer respawn delay, similar to the grenade bag found in 2fort. The flag room is larger than the orginal, and the flag is placed differently, with a raised platform under the base emblem for building sgs. Most of the other rooms have generally been redesigned and given a facelift. In short it it's not a cut & paste job, it is a completely new map built from scratch, but it retains the same feel and layout as the original map, thus it has been named Stowaway2.
Hope you have fun playing,
