…and I am not talking about Jesus. As I look over the site I notice another wide gap between updates. When real life gets in the way, something is bound to loose its priority, thus, no updates on The 6th Floor. I am sure to some degree the site is still useful, as it hold some good information and files on it. But recently with all these shit between the US v Iraq, the possibility of loosing my job with an airline that has filed for bankruptcy, the last thing you want to do is update a web site. I am sure you all understand.
In fact I have not been very active at all. Sure there are the occasional FMFS or Clanbase shoutcast, while trying to get the Medal of Honor shoutcasting going again at TsN. As for Urban Radio, it is not dead, but I am not really in a hurry to bring it back, due to lack of support. Sure there are regulars who tune in, but for the most part the support for the show was waining. So, I decided to pull it off until a later date.
New maps, there are plenty of them. One of them I will touch on, because I still have some dev shots when I tried to do it were of the Scott Base in the Antarctic. Fortunately a better level designer than I took to the challenge. Servinal has created ut_scottbase designed around this concept. Some nice detail in the level, but have not had time to play it yet.
Another level designer who never ceases to amaze is INVIS. His work is just amazing. Call me a homer, but INVIS has been able to combine all the aspects that go into a solid map. Now I am sure I will get some disagreement on this, but my web site, my opinion. I have tested a few of his upcoming levels, like the remade ut_streets. Yeah, remember that one I rebuilt? Well INVIS has truly taken it to the next level. I also checked out a new level is he working on. Since I have not spoke to INVIS about, I won’t mention details or even a level name. But it will surely be another tight level.
You cannot leave Dick Dastardly out of any level design conversation. I have played his new level that is currently being tested as well. Bottom line, “WOW!” Highly impressive, with a solid layout and top quality texturing, along with some unique features not previously see in any Urban Terror level.
For those who might not venture to the Urban Terror Forums, SpaceMarine has created a nice little program that will help you Just downloaded it review it. Props to SpaceMarine for the work. What this program does is take an inventory of what maps you have and what you are missing. I highly recommend this for those who cannot live with ALL the Urban Terror maps. Download it from FilePlanet.
