I've noticed the new improved maps, and the bots are harder too grrr
Good work guys
yes the vehicles now face the right way
I have uploaded 4 new maps. Perhaps you would try.
I have a suggestion :
- Is it possible to change the name of the map FaceClassic (with normal weapons) to benefit from the improvements that I made ? (FlakCannon, bots using vehicles...)
(I think my suggestion of the parachute was not retained)
Ill check them out when I get a minute! Thanks Gorge.
About new maps
I want to clarify one thing for grumpy people:
the changes I've made the maps don't change anything when the all players are real people.
On the other hand, bots are now real vctf players because they use the vehicles, and are no longer only stupid pedestrians. The game is more interesting because we really feel to play against "real" players.
When bots don't use the vehicles, it is because the author of the map has not done its work : he lacks the skills, or he can't. Indeed, it is hard work to do.
The only map where I made a change in the way the game is Gritwind: because I saw that many players did not like the presence of the tank.
The server admin, instead of using the two versions of the map (one with and one without tanks) preferred to place only those without. It is his right, and even his duty, to choose among the thousands of maps, those that look best.
I presented these maps because I thought the real players would have more fun to play when bots are there. Apparently, there are always people who see the improvements as bad.
We have implemented all the maps you have changed in the past, they have been a most welcome improvement.
We have been very busy at Digiex this last week and just havnt had chance to look at your new maps yet. The server will be updated ASAP, please bear with us.
Thanks for the hard work on improving the maps so they can be more enjoyable with bots.
Look our for them later today!
I’ve spent this morning giving the UT 2004 server a much needed sort out, it had got a bit neglected! Sorry about that we have been busy lately, I hope you will all understand that.
The default map is now Gorge’s improved VCTF-FaceClassic-SE-V2A although the old map was no longer in the map cycle it was the default map that loaded when the server was started causing people to have slow downtimes as it was no longer on the redirect.
The redirect is fixed, I wasn’t aware it had actually broken but hopefully no one should have problems downloading any maps / missing files.
Any duplicate maps have been removed, any versions improved by Gorge have been kept and the originals removed.
3 new maps and an improved RedRooms by Gorge were added: VCTF-Amethyst.ut2, VCTF-AQUADUSK.ut2, VCTF--H2-Coagulation.ut2, VCTF-Redrooms-LD.ut2
The UTNA mod was removed as the UTAN servers were taken offline on June 16th.
The Digiex Map Pack has now been updated with all the new maps added to the server since January of this year – this can be downloaded here.
Im playing about with the “Chute” mod at the moment, if the other server admins agree this mod will be added to the server.
I think that’s about it, please do feel free to suggest any more VCTF Maps for the server, were always on the lookout for quality new maps.
I hope the server doesn't use this server for redirection :
"Gameservers.net discontinues their redirect service on the 1st of July, 2009"
(Gameservers.net discontinues their redirect service on the 1st of July, 2009 - The Unreal Admins Page - Forums)
This is going to pose many problems to many servers.
A lot of website seem to be discontinuing support for UT 2004 lately, don’t worry this won’t affect us as we host our own redirect.
A New Map
I found a map. It's a UT3 remake : vctf suspense.
Scorpions & Hellbenders are... hmm... different from other.
I made two screenshots. The map is now in FTP.
Very nice map Gorge, it’s been added to the server.
Do you know of any more map conversions from Unreal 3 to UT 2004?
Unreal Tournament 3 conversion maps sound like they could be quite interesting.
This is the only time I've heard of a game that's had a map made to play on an older version (UT3 ---> UT2004) LOL. I can't think of any UT3 maps I'd like to see made for UT2004 apart from that portal one, if that's at all possible.
Looking for ut3 maps adapted for ut2k4, I found this mutator: UT3Style4UT2004
I don't know if it's interesting.
This mutator modifies vehicles to make them similar to those from UT3.
For example :
- The scorpion primary fire is an energy ball.
- With the space bar, we can boost.
- The hellbender driver can fire while driving.
I had no time to test for the other vehicles changes.
Thanks for that Gorge, it’s a shame no other maps were converted although I think that’s probably one of the best maps from Unreal 3 anyway.
Ill have a look at the mutator.
Need an exorcist ?
There's strange things on the server VCTF.
I attach screenshots of strange conversations with Primebot.pt
What is funny is the story of names
I think the server is haunted
My farewell gift.
The servers IP is now: 188.8.131.52
Hopefully it is all working perfectly now, we have had a lot of problems with the company hosting the server, we have now moved to a new host so hopefully everything should be ok once again.
Any problems do let us know, we hope to see some of the regulars playing again
Thanks, i used to play in the server. I will start to again.
