Extract the archive into :

DM-Aly-NE_v11.ini
DM-Aly-NE_v11.txt
DM-Aly-NE_v11.ut3
DM-Aly-NE_v11_LOC_int.upk

DM-Aly-NE-FPS.ini
DM-Aly-NE-FPS.txt

What as been done for the FPS version based on the 'NE':

Final 1.0:

. Remove all dynamic lights and replace them with static lights. Dynamic lights are responsable for the low FPS you may encounter in the regular 'NE'. I also enhance the lighting in general
. Remove some fire emitters
. Remove some fire sounds
. Remove all smoke emitters
. Remove all physicsvolume used to inflict damage associated to the removed fire emitters
. Replace the moon SM by a less complex SM & enhance the material
. Reduce sky material complexity
. Remove some plants
. Switch all pickups around except Bezerk to obtain a new gameplay
. Tweak the Bezerk water volume
. Redone preview screen

Final 'NE' 1.1

. Adjust all postprocessing effects outside the play area once again. It's more black & white than blueish
. Adjust culling & collisions values on big rocks outside the play area
. Add more blocking volume from the RL weapon base location to the helmet location
. Tweak the torch material

Comments:

I change / replace things from the day edition to create a completely new gameplay & a different atmosphere.

Take note that the Night Edition is visuals oriented. It include lot's of emitters (fire, smoke, night flies) & also use a huge amount of dynamic lights. I did what I can to optimize the map but still you must have a powerful GPU to truly appreciate the atmosphere & visuals. Now that your advise, don't complaint if your experimenting low FPS on your PC. Instead, if your experimenting to low FPS (like 30 or less), grab the 'NE FPS' which is gameplay oriented.

The regular ‘NE’ is very hardware demanding mostly due to the huge amount of dynamic lighting. The goal of the FPS edition is to roughly obtain the same amount of FPS as the day edition & also use the night theme. The gameplay between all editions isn’t the same because all pickups (weapons, ammo, medium health, vials & armors) as been switched all around. I didn’t want to only just replace the dynamic lighting with static lighting & leave the map like that but rather make some drastic change to enjoy another gameplay

I must admit that I have tested the DM-Aly only some minutes ago. I am too busy with some own work all the last weeks... Looks great and and I had fun playing it. aww
DM-Aly is marked for upload on my server next time. biggrin

The pictures of the Night version look also very interesting, I like this atmosphere. smile

At the moment I am downloading NE-FPS... Although I am quite sure that I won't have big performance issues with my GTX 285, I am not sure which one would be better for use on my server. Which one would you prefer to have uploaded, NE or NE-FPS?

PS: Next upload event will be within one of the next weeks, I want to finish my own map first...wink

Well, all versions will run pretty good with a GTX285. I like all 3 of them because the gameplay isn't the same. It's your choice buddy, put the one you like the most on your server. You can also put them all since it's only 30 MB but it's your call smile

For the day version, make sure you grab the SE & not the old one wink I leave the old one here since it's the only PS3 version available for Aly.

I didn't know you where making a map. It's cool biggrin
