We start from a community regular when it comes to knowing his shizit about level design. That would be INVIS over at Section 8 Studios. As we continues to work on a plethora of fronts, such as the next vehicle pack release, you can check out his latest handiwork, a parking meter and a neon lighted sign.
Another new level has hit the Urban Terror scene. The level is called ut_hacienda by Lexiboy and you can grab the file from, here. Check out screen shots, the map seems to have a bit of ambiance, but looks really dark, something gamers are not akin to. Lexiboy says, “I think it looks like nice but the fps are bad 🙁 … but for my first map its not bad 😉” You be the judge, as gamers are quickly turned off by low FPS maps. You can check out some screen shots in this thread.
A bit late on this last piece of news, but if you are into the mod, then chances are you have already seen it. Silicon Ice Development has released three new map packs for the community. When they say new, they do not mean new maps. That is, unless you are a new gamer to the community. The packs are broken into three different downloads:
- TS/TDM Pak: Pgrounds-nd, Bungalow, Cambridge, Cargo_lite, Office
- CTF Pak: Subway, Citygardens, Intermodal, Druglord2, Eagle
- Popular Pak: Laneway2, Golgotha, Demolition, Dville, Druglord
Many good levels are included in these three packs. So, if you are short a few levels, then I recommend downloading the individual levels or the map packs.
Some have inquired about the status of ut_streets, that I am rebuilding for Urban Terror. With all the poop that has been going on since last week, I have not had time to get back into Gtk to play around. But, this has given me some time to think about what I want to do with the level. Hopefully within the next few weeks I can dedicate a bit of time to it.
