    They need to change UT3 Completely in order to achieve something like ut99...and not another ut2004 with servers only in canada and pings of 300+.

    I doubt they go the route of making new players buy UT3 and also the expansion separately. Most likely they'll package the original game with the expansion update into a new retail box and label it UT3: Brizz Cheese Edition or something.

    They did this with the Editor's Choice Edition of UT2004. It was the original UT2004 with the ECE bonus pack in one box and people who already owned UT2004 could just download the ECE bonus pack.

    The only difference this time is that they need to include a lot more than a few vehicles and silly skateboarding maps if they want anyone to actually play it.

    Also, don't be shocked if the expansion pack focuses on lol vehakels because people still playing UT3 only play Warfare and VCTF for some reason these days even though DM and CTF is where UT3 shines.

    If Assault was brought back, would it increase the number of on-line gamers in UT3? The UI in UT3 is terrible, but granted gamespy servers and everything else is working, we only spend about 5% of the time on the UI... so I wonder if an overhaul would attract people to play on-line... honestly, the reason why I play more COD than Unreal (and I'm a huge Unreal fan since Unreal itself) is because of the ease of getting into a server, cancelling a connection if the server is not working and generally spending less time on the UI and more time playing

    if its doesnt require the origanal to play.. expect to pay full price for the origanal also..
    most game expantions require the origanal to play.. the expantions are often cheaper.. but if it inclused the origanal.. then you will be paying for that as well.

    This reminds me, Crysis runs like a dream on my system but UT3 is nowhere close. GoW runs better than Crysis, but probably only because GoW has more enclosed environments.

    I think it's already too late. I don't know if you've noticed but UT3 and GoW look like 1st cousins.

    I still think if they just took the characters designs from UT2k4, adjusted their size & proportions, greatly increased the polycount, took it easy with the normal mapping, and retained _some_ of the color the game would have looked better and looked like a real sequel.
    ( I also like some environment & character designs in Tribes:Vengeance and in Unreal 2)
    ( Ok, I partially take that back after looking at some screenshots but there's something about the look of UT3 that offends/disgusts me that I don't get from looking at old screenshots of those 2 other games)

    Is it possible to replace UT3s taunts with a combination of taunts from UT2k4 and UT99?

    wasn't the plan for the warefare features to allow the community to build assault-like maps if they wanted to?

    You already can. That's something you could use Kismet for.
