    Bazzwano has released CTF-Stratus for Unreal Tournament 3. Stuffed with 18300 assets, this one appears to look every bit as visually appealing as his two outstanding remakes for UT3, CTF-Dreary3 and CTF-Safeguard3. A bit about the level in the author's own words:

    Complaining about the assets...

    How about "Thanks for the map. Looks cool, but I'm tired of that theme"?

    I hate the internet.

    yo dude the map sux b/c its industrial not egyptian for the 100000th time :crysmile:

    Sometimes I just dream about the Internets to have an anti-idiot system, that'd be nice. Bazzwano spent months to make this wonder, so get some balls and try it out.

    Sure it's a lot of stock content there but I give props to Bazzwano for assembling it the way he did.

    UT 3 is like a box of legos the pieces are the same every time you open the box, how you put them together is what counts.

    Some people are really talented and have time to make all new content but a lot of people are talented in their own right to morph the shipped content into to new and interesting designs.

    Is it just me, or does Buzzwano seem like the Plutonic of UT3? This is looking pretty sweet.

    Can't someone ban them? No big lost, especially GreatEmertard. Many thanks.

    Or Unreal 2. :lol:

    I don't hate the Internet, I hate dumb people.

    Bazzwano: Don't listen the trolls. You've done a very nice retail job at this, and you're more likely going to get the money for all the hours and hours spend into it.

    Good luck. :)

    I'm not going to lie, this looks nice. The layout looks smooth, and apparently these guys don't understand how much work went into it. Good job bazz.

    Egyptian themes never really appealed to me in the Unreal universe either.

    Sci-fi for the win!

    I'm not being a troll or bashing his work. I'm just stating the fact that I figured since this game has been out for 2+ years, people would take the time to be more original by now and put more thought into their content. I appreciate things that stand out. Things that gives a user an idea of the artist's creativity and personality from their work. Not something I've seen over and over again. Maybe I overreacted a little or maybe someone can explain to me why this map was front page news when there are tons of other maps that deserve that spot a lot more.

    My $0.02 :rolleyes:

    Ban me if you want, doesn't bother me if you feel butt hurt.

    I like the way you build up the map. Alway near and with direct feedback from the community. :2thumb: You showed your progress of work from the very first beginning. Maybe you can post these steps in a little tutorial in form of a diary?
    Of course this theme has been seen 1000 times before but I really like your version. Everythink fits perfect together. It looks like an Epic map or even better. I am looking forward for some more (different themed) maps from you. Maybe WAR or VCTF? Good work!

    This is a a little bit rude, isn't it? If you dont like the map you can post that but with some more respect of his work. Any criticism should be start with some positive aspects and I am sure you will find some. Come on guys, please... :)
