This is looking mos tpromising, but I'm wondering, those aren't in-game screenshots, right?

Also, don't forget the new tech 2k7 will heavily rely on, the normalmap like rendering with lightmaps.

And to be a total nitpick:P, some trees in that map shot don't have leaves and branches at the top, it looks strange and out of place. The first paintball guns look very slick, especially the red one.

I assume different types of weapons have different specifics like range, power and accuracy? Also, I'd like to see some of the rifle types.

Thanks for the positive comments. Some shots of the levels were taken in game in UT2K4 which they were previously made for, some maps screenshots were taken in UnrealED. I agree with you on the trees and will suggest that to Axe.

As far as the weapons, All the weapons shoot the same velocity 300fps so the range is about the same on the markers, however rate of fire, accuracy, weight, reliability of each marker is different.

I would love to make a map for you guys. I'm currently working on a few UT2006 maps. Once 2k7 is released, if you guys are still around, I'll make sure to hit you up. With SpeedTree being used, some very awsome new maps will be available. I'm just wondering thou, is this mod popular? How many people play this? Are you expecting a large number of players?

You guys should really use a different theme set than antalus's one. Especialy the grass textures and trees. Just my oppinion.
Seems very open too, i wonder if you guys even planed Z axis based maps.

Thanks for the suggestions, and we look forward to seeing maps from our community, and non team members. Our community is pretty strong, obviously we could build it quite a bit but with the lack of updates and media as we are in the planning stage it can be boring. I will show my Head Mapper this thread so he can review your suggestions. Again we appreciate them and hope to see you in our community and forums when the time comes :-D.

I'm a longtime fan of MVPB and Id just like to say that I am very impressed of the quality and the realism of your models. I also am making a mod for ut2007 and I wish us both luck in success.

I'm looking forward to this mod. MVPB has a lot of potential as UT2007 mod because of some amount of complete content.

Sorry to bring an old mod back up but the MVPB team is hoping now that summer is near we can find dedicated team members to bring our mod to life. We have a few guys from our team who are taking additional classes in school and will be available to work harder in the summer. Things have been slow and we still need to complete our team to begin real production.
