    Then why is it so hard to find populated non-vehicle CTF servers? There's far more activity for this game type in UT99, which is a sad indictment of UT3.

    I personally don't play CTF but usually there is always a full server per gametype.

    Also when 4 guys join an empty bta server after 1 hr it will be full.

    Your sig picture doesn't do your map justice. It is much nicer in the screen shots you linked to.

    I really think you should get back to work on your project.
    As far as CTF being dead I think that is a fallacy. I think the people that play CTF are dedicated and people usually choose a game type and stick to it. I still play CTF every weekend (practically). I think that the player count is down. It is really hard to keep numbers like UT99 had with all the new games and platforms that are out. I do think UT will always have it followers/die hard fans (especially since you can add user content). I think UT has a huge cult following.

    It's been a long while, but you can add this to your list.

    I look forward to Zeto personally :)

    Thanks for saying so.

    Is the cult following that large? If you add up the number of people who play UT99, UT 2004, and UT3 regularly, online, combined, we would have what, perhaps 3000 people distributed over three games? It's kind of sad, but I really don't think the number of people playing UT--any of the UTs--is all that great. In the UT99 PUG CTF pug community, for example, a number of people have disappeared in the past year.

    This is Bret Hart's version. I may be wrong, but I think Ionium is him? I dunno, he changed his name a lot. Fun map, don't try to break it and you won't have problems.

    This is Sanchez's version. Personally, I prefer this one although it breaks from the arctic theme. I can't say I've played it recently, but he may have fixed the core advantage in the SE version.

    This map isn't as polished as I wanted it to be, but I realized the community was shrinking to the point that I no longer cared to put the time into it. Some pathing bugs and whatnot, but it works pretty well.

    WAR-BeerBattle
    http://forums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=678338

    I made this map as a joke and to play with kismet/matinee. It will never be finished as the community is dead (enough that I don't care to work on maps). Nonetheless, it's good for a laugh if you played the original.

    I realize this thread isn't about Warfare, but some people might be interested so why not?

    Sure the more the better, i'll implement & include a warfare section as well. ;)

    P.S. Bret Hart (AKA TheHitMan) has mad mapping skillz have you played CTF-Armadus? Crazy sick battles on LAN! most adrenaline since UT99 IG ladder matches.

    For every 1 Player you see online, there are 10 people that are unregistered players. They D/l maps but do not reply. In my lan play group alone There are only 2 players out of 10 that post online but most do not play online.
    If you track map d/ls you will see there are a lot of d/ls but few votes (on other forums) or thanks.

    Have to look out for maps for which the download links are no longer working. Perhaps PM the authors if possible...

    We'll get that sorted out soon. For now most AFAIK the majority of them work, but if there is anything specifically your looking for feel free to post it - the members here are good about helping to find a working mirror, also my buddy Skillz is always adding things to his mirrors, eventually i'll ask him to mirror everything in the list. - Hope that helps.

    Yup you're right. When i have more time i intend to ad;

    • Beta sections of each gametype
    • War section
    • Custom (Top-Rated) maps section
    • Update and verify links

    I'll be working on this in the coming weeks. - I anticipate that once i get this fixed up from time to time some links will expire (i'll post something about that in the first post asking people to report non-working links in this thread)

    Thank you for the heads-up Darkdrium [​IMG]
