- Slug's headline
Well its here... Its probably the biggest map ever for SOF2. Based on Genoa the home town of massimagnus, who also created The Prisoner - Portmerrion. This map took over 700 hours to make, you will see why when you start to explore it. Over 200 custom textures are used, Supports dm, tdm, ctf, inf, dem, elim In team games you can monitor movements on the map from above and an audio-visual feedback is produced when the enemy pass through several checkpoints wisely located in the map. Huge map - needs lost of players - access to rooftops and take a ride in a hot air balloon. Good FPS on ground. AWESOME MAP - TRY


This is one huge awesome map, another map from massimagnus.
It's a map about the heart of the city I was born 43 years ago.. GENOA, ITALY, as I remember it, not an actual simulation.
I think this will enjoy both street action and snipers addicted. It's really large but detailed too.

Detailed, he's not joking. This map has flawless detail, in fact probably too much? The detail on the roof tops is awesome. The map is huge and you will get lost very easily (i did)  The custom textures and sounds are fantastic, you really feel like your there. The map supports dm, tdm, ctf, inf, dem, elim game types and will host 32 players, and boy you will need this map full to enjoy it.

Read the read-me for full details of the features added to much to add here. This map is well worth a download, and hopefully you will get it on those custom servers.

Note: This map is huge and you will need a good number of players to enjoy it.

This map is idiotic, waay to big for sof2 to handle.
But it is definately one of the greatest achievements ever for sof2. I don't even want to know how long it took for you to make this. This is a truely amazing map. 10/10

truely amazing

Yes the map is big but if you played his other map you would realise that he likes to recreate the place exactly as he knows it. Its more a personnel enjoyment, if you look at real pictures of portmerion you will see how perfect it is, Genoa will be no different. This guy should be working for a games company

Best map ever!

 #11 - Posted by: LeTHaL_BaNaNa (Member) on 05-07-2006 at 15:19 
Yes, sof2 has limits you know. This map is gigantic, 200+ textures, 30+ sounds, bsp filesize:40mb. Definately too big. My PC handles it fine, and the author did a great job on making it run smooth

this is not a fragging map, THIS is A PIECE OF ART! I was working through it like on a italy holiday. All the sounds, the beautiful details. i could not close my mouth, i was amazed. Love thoose birds that fly up sometimes (even though i dont have a clue how u made those). 9/10, because its a bit to big for nice playing. BUT AWSOME ANYWAY!!!! 

 #16 - Posted by: Mike_Hawk (Member) on 05-09-2006 at 07:16 all I can say.
... This has got to be the finest SOF2 map ever made 10/10
