    I think you are right. The Cat's Eye Nebula sounds right to me.
    I have no plans on changing it. I always found it amazing.

    In an alternate universe where UT is truly open source you would have found at least 3 shady bootleg gratuitous android ports of it by now. A phones-only ctf-face server would be interesting

    I still have UT3 and UT2004 on my machine. Do I play them? Sometimes.
    I may play UT3 tonight.

    beast, did you ever play the stupid SP in UT3? It's terrible but kinda fun with four other players.

    We should play it and kill Shakaka the necris together.

    to be fair, I also still have UT2k4 with me on my desktop.

    I still enjoy a god damn good game of Onslaught with the right mutators.
    such a great pass time. and I still enjoy some of the old mods.

    DO YOU GUYS remember Defense Alliance? does anyone still play Death Ball? there were so many great mods for 2k4.
    and it doesn't really matter that the online communities have dried up. back in the day, most UT mods were designed with bots in mind since that was still a big feature in shooters at the time. obviously bots are still nothing like playing against humans... but something as simple as having a bunch of Godlike bots jumpin' around is pretty much the next best thing. there's usually pretty great pathfinding and the maps are so original and unique. they don't create multiplayer maps like they did back during that era. everything is so convoluted and multi-leveled with multiple planes and teleporters and elevator shafts and hiding places with secret power-ups and fantastic weapons that turn flesh into giblets.

    the over saturation of 'realistic' linear shooters is sad sometimes.

    I loved Deathball. Rocket League is kind of a close facsimile.

    And I miss Rocket Arena. So many good times.

    I loved Fraghouse Invasion's madness.
    And I was so excited for USkaarj. Too bad it never came out.

    I always liked Angelheart's maps. Very detailed maps. Favourite ones were meatdance, chiller and 2019.

    That one where she did the crazy nanomachine effects was really cool.

    You mean Angelmapper?

    1940sraf, Dasboot (another fav), Panzer and Realassault.

    Almost forgot about dm-citylights. Large map, was good for teamgames.
    And sunsetexpress. Very thight, and insanely fast with flak cannon only.

    I had a weird thing for beachhead style maps; like beach assault, Normandy, ever since the original AS-Overlord.
    fuckin' loved that map for some reason. such a nerd for World War 2 stuff.

    way back in the day one of the main things I would search for all the time was maps based on that scenario. and between 99 and 2k4, there were actually a lot to go around. AS and ONS and TDM maps where you had like one big base at one end, a massive no-mans-land field of death inbetween, and a playercount of 16 or more people. I could spend hours playing those, which probably led to my love for games/mods like Day of Defeat from Half Life.

    I think I barely played UT3. I do remember it but I was getting heavily into RPG by the time it arrived. Also map installation in UT3 was a pain in the arse.
