    What does it mean when you think that and then actually go and build one?

    I built a map of our office at work so we could play it after saying "man, I'd love to fly a redeemer around these cubicles" for weeks on end. :)

    Even the boss was amazed. lol

    you showed the boss? haha

    i've never actually built a level ripped from real life, tho i've been influenced. I think the house is the ultimate obsession. I'll wait until u2 and make one for my house :)
    I've got to learn some 1337 3dsmax skillz or something and put lots of meshes in my house :)

    messy it be :D

    Well, *I* didn't actually show the boss. Some dufus who was amazed by my 1337 mapping/texture skillz did (it wasn't all that good - dufus was just easily impressed).

    Hmmm... that might explain why the VP cracked down on all the LANnage we had going on ;) One non-productive kid in the bunch and that's all it took.

    Anyway, it's the only map I've completed to a point that was seriously playable. Can't tell you how cool it was to stand in your own office and launch gernades over the wall to the cubicle next to you. :D I thought about releasing it, but then you know how those kinda things go over <lol>

    Hm I had this weird ut dream a couple of days ago..

    A big landscape, snowy mountains, night time...
    Red and blue "base". Each team over 200 players or more (big army)
    So we're sitting at the edge of the mountain, looking at the other side, listening...
    All of the sudden the blue attackers are there.. a real invasion.. and one of them is carryin the blue flag :)

    Why did they have to carry their flag to our base anyway? Weird dream :p :D

    I can definitely relate to a lot of those. I'm guilty of 1. and 7. from the first list. Read most from the second long list and they were hilarious!

    Yo Chrysaor - Read This

    Hey dude, sorry so slow in response. I wasn't ignoring you :) Your post was in regard to the office map that I was working on.

    I can't give the map to you (sorry), but I did post a thread in the showcase with pictures if you're interested:

    when you jump out of a 2 story window asuming you will lose 20 health.
    when someone walks into your house with out knocking you yell "MY HOUSE"
    When you try to turn your boss's AI to godlike
    when you get fired for trying
    when you play paint ball and you hit someone in the head you yell HEADSHOT.
    when you shoot multiple people you yell ULTRA KILL
    when you put a belt on a simulate the "Blarsh" sound of the belt powering up.
    you wish you were a 4 armed nali.

    You know you've been playing UT too much when...

    ...someone refers to actually using a default key binding in UT and you think to yourself "Rookie".

    ...you calibrate your mouse sensitivity (on another system/for another game) by using a ruler to standardize how the mouse moves to perform a 360.

    ...your mouse sensitivity setting goes to the tenth or even the hundredth.

    ...if you can't use direct input, you take note of your windows mouse speed, so you can get your exact UT mouse sensitivity back if the windows sensitivity is changed.

    ...you find yourself glueing a mouse back together for a friend to get a few more UT games out of it.

    ...you bring (to a LAN party) or have (at home) an extra mouse, just in case. (or was this one already listed?)

    ...you get in a debate with your friend over the which keys to bind to which weapons. (proof that your friend plays to much UT also)

    ...you get in a debate with your friend over how the weapons should be ranked. (proof that your friend plays to much UT also)

    ...you make assumptions on a person's Shock Rifle combo skills based on how high it's ranked in his/her weapons preferences.

    ...you map/remap your other FPS games' key bindings to your UT bindings, with the non-UT equivalent functions (such as "Use") mapped in place of such keys as "Best Weapon"--as other FPS games don't use such useful functions, which may frustrate you.

    ...you host a game, and have settings at an absolute minimum on a 1.4Ghz machine, just to keep the LAN game running that much smoother.

    ...you haven't replaced that ageing voodoo 3 card, because it still runs UT quite well.

    ...in addition to thinking UT was smart to have a Windows-similar GUI, you think Windows would be smart to have a more UT-similar advanced settings GUI.

    ...you wonder if there'll be a mod/mutator to run UT in U2/UT2, in case you like the UT weapons better.

    ...you can actually post additions to a "You know you've been playing UT too much when..." list that is already way too long.
