Another award-winning UT2004 mod has left beta and joined the ranks of 'official release.' Air Buccaneers 1.0 is now available for download! If you haven't played AirBucs yet, you are missing out on one of the more unique UT2004 mod experiences available. There's a huge changelist, including:



- New scoring system, all maps use the same booty-based system

- Custom pirate-themed voice actors with over a hundred phrases (male and female VO sets)
- 4 unique characters with lots of custom animations and detailed skins
- Improved models and textures for most weapons
- Gameplay tweaks and balancing
- All maps polished and optimized
- More punishment for the TK'ers (in-game jail system)
- Base cannons added
- HUD completely redone
- Glider added, helps to get to the own battleship quickly
- Awards reworked completely



...and much, much more. Stop by the official site for the whole poop!

IMHO it needs quite a lot of players... 8 would be the bare minimum... but thats just my opinion... not liked im a seasoned veteran at this game though.

Well, most of our testplay is done with 8-10 players; the game can be fairly intensive even with that few people if all the players are focused to playing, and don't loiter around much. I would recommend the smaller maps, and the Treasure Hunt gametype: Harbour is the ideal map for small group of players, in my opinion. The small TDM's would also work quite well (Old forest, for example). Definitely drop Ruins from rotation, it's too big for such amount of players.


Cheers,

pekkok

This mod is quite awesome. It can be a pretty intense multiplayer experience.
8 players are a bit few, but I think it would be fine for a lan, especially if everyone is within yelling distance. You have to talk smack (but not on pubs).
