MountainIsthmus is a new random map script which creates new playing styles and strategies. This map is derived from my previous Isthmus map, in which there is a central isthmus which connects all teams and divides the sea. This new map includes mountains and jungle on the isthmus, which makes for a little more defensive possibilities than the original. There are minor cosmetic changes, and a bit more total forest on this new map. There is random variation of terrain types on this map.
Compared with maps with a single sea, the seas are harder for one team or player to dominate since they are divided. The isthmus can be the scene for battles as the only land connection between the players. The map is also especially great for KOTH as the monument appears on the isthmus with equal access by all teams and naval support for attacks on the isthmus is possible.
This script has been revised as of December 19, 2000 to correct a problem with PINE_FOREST and WATER placemant, and to thin slightly the jungle terrain of the isthmus.
Also, the rare double connection to one team has, I believe, been eliminated.
