A rascal cat is back with more sweet map!

"Good day community! Today you will witness ibemeubu's map, Castle Greenskull which I have been anxiously awaiting to present to you. Now not only is this map colossal, but the aesthetics are stunningly designed. Search hard enough and you might just find yourself face to face with the 'Greenskull' himself.

Set up for 12-16 players, Castle Greenskull works wonderfully with the max amount. Castle Greenskull was built in the 'Alaska' part of Forge World, and is set up for '1 Flag', '1 Bomb', and Team Slayer Variants. The map is fairly open, so you shouldn't have to worry about moving around freely.

Castle Greenskull features ranged combat and vehicular action. Bridges, rock formations, and hidden pathways litter the open center spaces to accommodate ground troop rushes along side vehicular charges. The map has two opposing bases. The red (defending) base consists of a large walkway with interconnecting staircases and braces, with a sniper tower on the right, and a hidden entrance on the left. Note: Castle Greenskull is a non-symmetric map.

Blue base has a terrifically structured initial spawn area for which there is one warthog, two mongooses, and an upper platform containing a Machine Gun Turret. As you take the short walk up out of the blue base you will find yet another sneaky pathway to your left, and crowd of rocks a few meters to your right.

In the middle of the map you will find a short bridge connected with a few more...well...short bridges. Bridges on either side are connected to different rock structures. Getting from one side to the other shouldn't be a problem though. The map is built in the 'Alaska' part of Forge World as I mentioned earlier, so you are able to freely roam the grassy areas.

Now that you have the basic layout of the map, here's a rendered film fly through, and some snazzy snap shots of the map.

Straight from HBO to your face!

That crash from jumping the broken bridge may have knocked your systems a little too hard, as now they're completely inoperable - so you must complete this mission HUDless! But don't worry. Normal difficulty is your biggest threat in this challenge - just be patient, and you'll get through this! We promise!
