Installation Instructions
You must have Battlezone 1.5.2.15 or later, however it is highly recommended you have 1.5.2.19 or later.
1. Exit Battlezone if it is running.
2. Extract "destiny.zip" to your Battlezone\addon folder, then double-check by finding the folder labeled "Destiny Map Pack" in that folder.
3. Open "readme.txt" or "netadd.txt" in the new "Destiny Map Pack" folder from the previous step. Copy the lines of text into "netmis.txt" located in the main (root) Battlezone directory.
There you go! You are now ready to play on the maps. If you are having trouble playing the maps, refer to the readme for more information and troubleshooting tips.

Thanks guys for the responses!

BlackDragon: I don't know... These maps were designed for stock 1.5, not a BZ2 mod. Can't you just use the maps directly from BZ2?

From both sites, there is currently a total of 70 downloads so far. Comparing to most other BZ1 works, this is a huge success! :D

I am considering making a "sequel" pack, most likely converting maps from G66, FE, VSR, etc. What do you guys think? :)

DESTINY MAP PACK: MOD EDITION
By blue banana

Due to the massive success of the original Destiny Map Pack, I have decided to create a second map pack in it's honor. This time, the maps will not be from stock/patched BZ2, but rather a collection of most-played maps from Forgotten Enemies, VSR, G66, Fleshstorm, and more! This map pack is intended to be significantly bigger than the last, hopefully doubling in size!

Since I am also working on another project, there is no set release date. Expect this to come sometime next year.

Thank you random citizen, Ching IIU, I completely forgot to update the link on my site. I was doing some cleanup and moved that file outside of the original location.

Yep, the AI race is CRA within the .bzn and .aip. Although you could spend a few hours on changing the race. :)

I forgot to update the topic about future plans...
I am tentatively planning a complete patch for the maps that will add BZ2 textures and extensive Lua maintenance. This isn't happening anytime soon though, but I'm open for suggestions. :D
