    The Requiem Modding Team has announced its plans to develop the Xen modification for Unreal Tournament 3. They are currently looking for some help in the coding and level design departments. Some impressive examples of pre-production work:

    If you want more details about the way they work (planification system, team management, project details, scenario details...), they're available on IRC ( #xenproject@quakenet ). Check the end of the game design documentation for a contact address.

    Those guys look a bit like those in the Aliens tetralogy. :)
    (I know they called it "quadrilogy", but that's not a word.)

    I hate to be a party-crasher, but they will almost definitively be shut down by WB.

    That being said, I love their work and concept.

    Indeed ... replace Xen with Alien and you've got a 100% perfect copy of Aliens movies.
    Unless they've got permission to use this IP they're going to get foxed as they've been the most active when it comes to 'protecting' their copyright.

    then again ... this sounds like a team that's composed of lots of artists and almost no programmers as it reads like an extremely complicated project.
    (ie : 5% chance of ever seeing a tech-demo of the first level)

    I have been reading up on this over at the Epic forums... Its been in the works for a while now.

    From what I have seen here it would seem they are remaining serious about this Mod, and we will likely see quite a few beta releases.

    As they stand to not make a profit from this i would think that the WB would welcome the free fanfare / Advertisement to one of there movies.

    Nope they won't. WB has shut down several other free projects that used their IP.

    Yeah it's a common misconception that if you aren't making money off intellectual property it's OK.

    question:

    we all remember that mod for quake1, that was made in the begginings of the modding history,

    hell, it was for quake1!!!!, the first game engine that was very used by a solid community,
    and that mod, was destroyed by FOX lawyers, arguing that they didnt allow anyone to use the image of his creatures,


    how are they going to deal with the same problem?

    Warner Brothers?! It's FOX! Haven't you ever heard of the term "foxed" before? Jeez. This has been done so many times I lost count.
