Urban Radio Returns! Again!

…or the first time since December 31, 2005 Urban Radio will return to the air on Inside the Game on Friday. For infrequent readers of T6F, this is an online radio show I created about 4 years ago in support of the Quake III mod, Urban Terror. I have been fortunate to host some 100+ episodes of the show and tomorrow is a special day as we get back in the saddle and provide oodles of information for the gaming community.

Over the course of the past 12-18 months, there has not been much information the development team had to pass along. The show was once a weekly part of the community, but due to personal reasons and life priorities the show was not able to be maintained and I had to stop producing it. But with all the information we have had coming out of the development team, it seems Urban Radio could provide another spark to an already excited community, with the new version of Urban Terror near release.

We are in the middle of ‘The 27 Days of Terror’ on the urbanterror.net site, but there has been no new information for two days, after we introduced a game feature called ‘powersliding.’ I figured such an exciting feature needed a little “extra time” to be absorbed by the community. That and the fact I was busy working on the radio show, which should prove to be the missing part of the 27 Days equation.

Hopefully all the musings in the community, on the forums and IRC will equate to a great radio show! It is my intentions to hopefully start up the show on a regular basis every Friday in order to bring the community up to date on the latest in the community and from the development team. I can already guarantee we will a release day version of Urban Radio. Stay tuned for more details.

Sitting on the dock of the bay

Ah, what the hell, I am a bit behind schedule today, in part due to the time I have been spending redesigning the screen shots section over on urbanterror.net. Almost completed, with a bit more work to go on the models. I think you will agree it is much improved, compared to what we were previously showing. Check the screenies out!

I have just finished a review of Docks by BattleCow. While this map is not new the Urban Terror community, it is one that is played on many servers. So give it a read and see if you don’t agree with me. I know you will! The next map up on the agenda, possibly tonight will be mbase by Gerbil! Yeah, remember Gerbil! who doesn’t the name is synonymous with the highly successful Urban Trilogy [and one bad map] for Action Quake 2. Look for it!

Ever hit the urinal with a few buddies and all is silent as you relieve yourself? What’s the acceptable conversation? What’s the proper way to respond in a meeting when someone farts?
