B - playing the map, known issues and bugs

>>> To play the map on a server
1.) put the theriver2redux.pk3 into your etmain folder
2.) put the theriver2redux_etpro.pk3 into your ETPRO folder
3.) run ET
4.) join the server
5.) have FUN!

>>> To play the map alone
1.) put the pk3 into your etmain folder
2.) run ET
3.) go to HOST GAME
4.) set it to STOPWATCH
5.) choose "TheRiver II Redux" from the list of the maps
6.) start and have a look around
In case you can't see the map you might be having too many .pk3-files 
in your etmain-folder and need to delete some.

>>> Known Bugs & issues
- fog: new nvidia cards with certain drivers and fastsky 0 seem to make the fog very transparent 
and the map looks cut off then; fastsky 1 fixes it
- lift won't move when a body is sinking through its platform
- tram: occasionally a player might get crushed, but its very rare
- FPS: Players with old gfx-cards (ge2 MX and g3 MX) will have real low FPS in the central area
Bugs: there shouldn't be too many left.

C - recommended settings

>>> gametypes available
Stopwatch, Campaign, Objective (no LMS)

>>> playerloads
This map is well playable for 8 and more players and is best playable with medium 
Its is also a challenging map for 6on6.
The River II (the predecessor) has been running on servers with 54 players and
was still playable.

>>> spawntime
Standard settings are: 
Allies 15 secs, Axis 20 secs which is slightly favouring Allies.
This is a fast map (where u can die fast too). Short spawntimes 
keep the game tight and ongoing.
For matches these spawntimes require good timing on offense but are well playable. 
Very long spawntimes enable the defending team to set up defense/crossfire too easily.

>>> map playtime
This is a very fast map. 15 Minutes is the original playtime of the RtCW map and 
is still the right time.
A good team (or a lucky one) can win the map in less than 3 Minutes.

>>> restrictions on weapons
Just the usual maximum on panzerfausts and riflenades will do well.

F - Story and map features (text for advertising the map)

Spring 1945: Allied Intelligence reports that the Axis is using Castle Silbereck 
and its old silver mines as a bunker complex to hoard treasure looted from 
occupied Europe... 
The Allies launch a daring raid to steal the treasure list and escape to a 
waiting truck. 
Axis forces located in a guard house and the bunker complex defend the 
Tram Station and the Castle bunker.
this turns Castle Silbereck into a place of furious battle...

Map Features:
Fast and adrenalin-packed 2-stage map with a long document-run.

Challenging fighting in various environments:
Close quarter combat in tunnels, caves, stairs and a castle/bunker setting 
as well as mid- and long-range fighting in open terrain.

Several access routes to the primary objectives offer tactical variation.
Game-layout is offense bias and offers both fast wins in less than 3 mins and 
successful defense.

First stage: 
Allies have to get a forward spawn by repairing a broken Engine Control Panel.

Second stage:
Allies capture the Bunker Flag to get a spawn close to the documents. 
Then they need to steal the documents and take them to the waiting
Escape Truck.

List of Objectives for Allies:
1st Primary: Repair the Engine Panel which gives the forward spawn in the Tram Station.
2nd Primary: Steal the Treasure List and take it to the Escape Truck.
Secondary: Destroy the Tunnel Barrier for a 2nd route to the Tram Station.
Secondary: Capture the Bunker Flag for a forward spawn.
Secondary: Destroy the Bridge Controls to lower the Bridge.
Secondary: Blow up the Front Wall for easy access/ escape to and from the yard.
Secondary: Build the Command Post.

List of Objectives for Axis:
1st Primary: Defend the Tram Station, don't let Allies repair the Engine Panel.
2nd Primary: Defend the Treasure List.
Secondary: Defend or repair the Tunnel Barrier.
Secondary: Defend the Bunker Flag or recapture it.
Secondary: Defend the Bridge Controls.
Secondary: Defend the Front Wall.
Secondary: Build the Command Post.
