    Right, so you may remember this video I made to let you know jailbreak was in the works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmI5rC9gjJo

    Well, more or less, the mod is playable. And although there are outstanding issues, the largest reason you aren't playing it now is maps. Besides the test map shown in the video above, We have perhaps one reasonably complete original map. I'm toying with a conversion or two, but we could really use some non-stock work. So if anyone likes mapping for team based gametypes (both CTF and WAR designs can potentially be used) and would like to see their work included with jailbreak, come down to the Jailbreak Forums and give us a holler, and make your mark on a great gametype. :)

    We're still in need of mappers. We've had a few guys who have said they'd help out but most of them have gone missing in the journey between here and the Jailbreak subforum....

    If anyone is interested - even if it is to just work on bits of maps, such as a layout, jail ideas, arenas, adding polish to a map. Anything would be a help! :)

    Come say Hi over on our irc channel, #utjb on enterthegame. Or head over to the jailbreak forums.

    I think you should pimp it even more, post stuff from the UT and UT2004 release to proof you're not just another random mod, and I would contact people who have made good CTF maps yourself, and ask them to convert their level.

    I worked with the jailbreak team twice, converting one of my levels for them, in 2001 or something for UT1 and in 2004 for UT2004. The UT2004 one won a first place Best Gametype prize in the UT2004 MakeSomethingUnreal. It is cool stuff and this is one of the oldest, or the oldest mod around in this community!

    I've been considering remaking CTF Vogel from HOLP2 to give it the standard UT3 look. With a few adjustments to the layout and greatly improved deco, I think it could make for a decent JB map.

    I'd be interested in helping out here, but I've never played Jailbreak tbh. I didn't see it in ut99, and didnt play the 2k* versions of UT. I'll check your videos.

    The problem is this: I've only ever completed one map (or at least what I would call completed), see my sig for a link. That being the case, I have probably a LOT to learn here, but if you can use me thats great. Its your call. I do have some time I can devote, but my limited time (family/job) + my noobish ued skills may not be what your looking for.

    I do have one layout I am working on, a redesign of a map I've been working with on and off since last June. It is a symmetrical map, so in theory it could work with ctf, and possibly Jailbreak, but I wont make a call until I've at least looked at how Jailbreak works.

    That's great. We welcome mappers of all skills and would certainly like to see your ideas.

    We have a very friendly core of people that are always happy to help out with stuff you might not have learned yet.

    Come to the Jailbreak forum and introduce yourself :)

    Ask for a frontpage on BU to get some real presence, most people hardly notice this section of the forums.

    Anyways, I'd jump in, but working atm I'm working with Renegade, HOLP3 and 2 personal maps. But only time will tell

    if conversions of any of my existing maps can help, count me in :)
