    Doom 3's version is pretty sharp, I'll agree. Hammer is certainly workeable too. But some other versions of Radiant are in the stone ages.

    Yeah it was Doom 3's Level Editor I used (Radiant) and to be perfectly honest with you. Hammer isn't all that great of a map editor. It crashes 24/7 and it isn't supported by the valve support team.. I lost intrest in it quickly. UT3's editor is best by far. :D

    Save your money, Don't buy UT3.

    Rule 1 : Don't upgrade your PC just solely for UT3

    Rule 2 : Laugh at UT3

    Rule 3 : Quote and bash this post for its truth

    See what happens when you wait for a 6 map download at Flag Junkies CTF server, then once it's finally finished you get a screen that pops up saying " Weapon Pack missing A_Biorifle " preventing you from joining the game, followed by 17 minutes of troubleshooting and google reading for a fix that I tried to cure 3 months ago. Then due to no cure, deleting the maps out of the Cache all together and realizing all the time wasted and bull**** that just occurred in a UT game where this shouldn't be a problem :2thumb:

    When I see the download screen come up, I write down the name of the map and download / install it manually, then rejoin the server later.

    What Epic says and what Epic does are two completly separate things. If UT is in their blood why do they always try and reinvent the game rather than improve upon it, why do they break and split the community to the degree they have shown to do on several Unreal titles when they really should make the community stay coherent and focused?

    Uh single player the one where you simply play dm/tdm/ctf with some bots a tacky attempt at a storyline and some card game. The entire experience feels sloppy from begining to end. Epic tries experiments with something new each Unreal release and thats the PROBLEM and always have been it only splits the community.

    Epic should set the bar high enough that the game can stand on its own, relying on the community to make the game acceptable is the worst kind of naive thinking not to mention self destructive in the long run and thats why UT3 is so poorly recived by those that matters those who actually play the game or rather those that dont play the game.

    Epic themself set the bar pretty dam high and then kept watering it down, conquest being a good example, instead of improving what they have they try and reinvent it instead.

    For UT3 to survive Epic has to pull of something on the scale of Onslaught for UT3 to revive intrest in the game for the average joe gamer.

    If you've been a gamer for very long, then you know that this happens with every game sequel and the developer/publisher have absolutely no control over it.

    In order for this to not happen, each sequel would have to play and feel exactly the same as the previous game.

    We gamers are like babies that have had their fav rattle taken from them when a new version of our fav title is released.

    No, war is just onslaught with tweaks, it hardly compares in scale to what onslaught was to 2k. There was no WAR map in the demo, and I believed them when they said WAR was a new gametype, and it was like assault+onslaught, etc. etc.

    I was expecting something NEW on a big scale, like Bishop describes, and it turned out just to be an onslaught mod.

    Either of you hock up a GOOD argument suggesting that I'm wrong, and I'll hock up a screenshot invalidating that argument.

    I don't want to bother installing UT3 on my tower again (since it's never powered up anymore), but if you two want to play internet tough guys, I'll raise you both an E-Spine. :eek:

    I recall some DOS game of yore saying "upgrade your pc" when you scrolled the view size down to minimum.. DooM? Rise of the Triad??

    Playing UT3 can feel the same way when on an fx5900. :eek:

    It was Rise of the Triad. Reduce the screen to minimum size to get the message "Get a 486 :)" IIRC.
