This is a single player map that is very detailed. The map has a lot of AI to fight against and even stats out with a cinimatic show right at the start. The story is based in a weapons testing facility in a desert where you have lost communications with command. The only thing that is know is that there was some heave weapon firing going on.

Programs used : WorldEdit
Base : Basically this is my first attempt at a single player map
for F.E.A.R., The story is simple........Masada Base has lost communications with
command, Heavy Weapons Fire was the last thing reported.
The base is a Weapons Testing Facility out in the middle of a desert in a canyon ;)
your objective is to enter the base....kill the bad guys and save anyone left alive including yourself lol.
Construction Time : 4 1/2 weeks? .
Machine Used to build and test:
2.8Ghz P4HT 800FSB
ASUS P4800E MB
XFX 7800GS Vid
1 Gb PC3200 (400) DDR
Installation for Single Player
For this to work i had to do it this way ;)
Goto C:\Program Files\Sierra\FEAR Folder
There you will find a file called Default.archcfg
I opened my Default.archcfg and edited it to add the Masada.ARCH00.
use note pad or the like to open it...you will have to change the Attributes
to the Default.archcfg to save it.
To do this select the file Default.archcfg right click for properties...
go down to attributes and uncheck Read-only.
Next I placed My Masada.ARCH00 in the
C:\Program Files\Sierra\FEAR Folder
with the original retail ARCH's.
So now when you select Single Player this map takes the place of Intro Map.
Basically it allows you to play the map....and when you complete the map,
it picks up on the next Retail map.
If you don't want it to do this after your done with it, simply edit the
Default.archcfg and remove the masada entry.
Installation for Multi Player
Place the MasadaMP.Arch00 Archive file in "Main FEAR folder/Shortcut to User directory/Custom/AdditionalContent"
thanks for downloading this map.....Enjoy !
My Thanks Goes to These People:
The_One, Big K (my girlfriend for putting up with all this damn map making crap lol).

|This is awesome, for the first single player level uploaded here ever, this is great. I like it how you get 2 fight some of the tougher enemies early, like the assassin. |
I did notice there was a slight walking problem at da start but it was fine after that, and the cutscenes were well staged.
My only complaint is that the level is too short, and not enough enemies.
Might i suggest 4 da sequel, that u mix up the enemies a lot more (like having asssassins wif regular soldiers, something the original game did not have), and make the battles much more frequent with little cutscenes.
Eagerly awaiting da sequel, and also hoping there be more singleplayer levels! (especially for Extraction Point, with all the new enemies!)

|Dude, I badly want to play this map but I don´t understand this, how the hell I should open Defaultarch.cfg, and what I´m supposed to do with it? |

|I did everything like the readme described, copied the ARCH00 file into my FEAR directory, edited the archcfg file and ran FEAR. I started a new game, and it just started with the normal first FEAR map. Is there somewhere specific within the Default.archcfg file I should place Masada.ARCH00? I can't work out why it wouldn't work |

|nevermind, magically started to work. Great map, but either needs at least one checkpoint or a warning at the start saying "You WILL end up being cornered in a tight space AT LEAST once by an R.E.V so quicksave." |

|Here are some details for those who might have a problem understanding the installation: |
1) Copy Masada.arch00 to the FEAR folder
2) In My Computer find Default.archcfg, right click the file name, click Properties, and uncheck Read Only
3) Run notepad, select File - Open and change the file type from Text Documents to All Files.
4) Locate Default.archcfg and open the file. Add Masada.arch00 to the end of the list of files (position is important, must be at the end). Click File - Save, then exit notepad.
5) Run FEAR. Select Single Player, New Game and the Masada map will start after the intro.
6) When done playing the map, edit Default.archcfg again and delete the last line that you had previously added.
Hope this helps.

|After you get whacked on the head and the explosion (core?) you make your way back to the Thermal Intake door (now open) and then to Maintenance Access B-1 where there is a ladder up. At the top of the ladder is a short hallway with a closed door at the end, that doesn't open. This seems to be a dead end with nowhere else to go. Is this the end of the map or did I miss another route somewhere? |
