A Very Idiot Christmas Anywhere (v1.0)
Original Plugin by the Idiot Mapmaking Collective:
"A Very Idiot Christmas" (2000-12-19)
Redux and Anywhere Plugin by Baak (OoH)
Last Updated: 2007-12-02
Requires Myth II Patch 1.6 or greater to play
Since the "A Very Idiot Halloween - Anywhere" plugin proved quite popular and
we are fast approaching the seven year anniversary of the Idiot Mapmaking
Collective's "A Very Idiot Christmas" map, I decided to take a snowy Sunday
to bring you "A Very Idiot Christmas - Anywhere"
Designed with special care to preserve everything possible from the original
conversion, plus all the extra details and surprises you've come to expect
from the Anywhere series, AVIC-A lets you play the conversion on hundreds of
multiplayer maps, converting almost 500 units and removing "excess" units so
you have a nice small fighting force.
Just make it Active and start tossing those snowballs!!
* Snowmen are now a little more interesting with a Killer Snowman who can
attack, has a better hit point spread, uses extra Myth II 1.4+ settings,
and a fixed death sequence
* Netgame balls (other than Scavenger Hunt) are added (there were none on
the original map) and are a Snowman Head! Like the Snowman unit it is
tricky to tell who owns it!
* AVIC Netgame flags (the North Pole style) are used wherever possible
(Flag Rally uses regular Myth II flags)
* Penguins are tweaked and used most often for Stampede units. Remember
these guys can swim but are not so good on steep/sloped terrain
* Snowmen Assassin targets can sometimes fight back
(if they are Killer Snowmen)
* Ambient units, sounds (yep, the song!), and extra AVIC scenery are
* Play with the included Snowy Maps plugin to get snow on Myth II Standard
maps (you need to scroll down to see the *-prefixed map names in blue -
those will have snow!)
Because of the nature of converting so many varied units and removing "excess"
units, you may find one or two third-party maps that won't convert well. This
is mighty rare, but if you find one please let me know about it.
Thanks again to the **Idiot Mapmaking Collective** for creating the original
I hope this plugin will let you enjoy it that much more.
***Happy Holidays!! :D***
