Main:
I. Overview

HillDale is my first attempt at mapmaking. I've been meaning
to get into it for years, but just never quite had the time. Finally,
in September of 2002, I sat down and studied a few of the tutorials
(see IV. Credits & Thanks) and finally created my first map. It may
seem basic to those of you who have done this for years, but I've spent
quite a bit of time on it, and I'm happy with the end result. All I can
say is, try it, and I hope you'll enjoy it.

II. Plugin Contents

The Hilldale .zip file will contain the plugins Hilldale, Hilldale
Freakout, and this Readme. The Hilldale plugin will contain the Hilldale
(Light), Neutral, Dark, Big Brawl, and Slugfest variants. Hilldale Freakout
contains just that. A separate file had to be made for Freakout since I
used a different colormap. Then, of course, is this Readme. Forgive any
straying of form (if there is any), as this is also my first.

III. Variants

All variants, with the excpetion of Big Brawl, have eight (8) starting
locations. Big Brawl contains two (2). All variants are playable on all of the
standard game-play types: Body Count, Steal the Bacon, Last Man on the Hill,

IV. Credits and Thanks

The Hilldale colormap was based off of Magellan's "Quick and Dirty Guide
to Myth II Mapmaking." A Great 'quick' way to dive into mapmaking for Myth II.

Most of the rest of my 'learnin' came from Cydonians Map Making Tutorials.
Quite comprensive and written in layman's terms for those just starting out.

For the rest, a big THANKS to those who answered questions in the mapmaking
forums at The Mill.

A huge thanks to my order-mates (Geezers from Hell) and friends (FOG) who
helped to test this map!

And lastly, to anyone who actually downloads this map and decides to play
it more than once.
