Re: React to the Profile Pic Above You!

I think this a picture of a goon of a 2nd rate comic book villain.

Looks like Kaku from One Piece after he ate the Ushi-Ushi no Mi.

Ah yes, he deleted all brushes so indepth checking is not possible. It should be a second sheet with translucent and mirror; check the FLOOR in the water. :)

Re: Discussion about consideration as "best maps made by community"

Either way it's not relevant to the "best maps by the community" theme of this thread.

Re: Discussion about consideration as "best maps made by community"

There's actually not too much in there. Place to start, yes, but probably better to get through your personal collection again. Would have a hard time narrowing it down to just 10 maps or so, even per gametype, since there's thousands of maps for UT. It's community has been huge and *very* active ov...

Re: Discussion about consideration as "best maps made by community"

My thoughts on this are: Best maps made by community What does that mean? Of course it will be different to everyone. There are some maps that are just fun to play. I remember a map called 2 boxes full of lava, it was 2 boxes with lava. But online people loved it and I must admit that it was a lot ...

Re: MAPS - the best maps made by community

No it doesn't use any special features. But the files would be different (change date, sizes) because of the changes made to fix the map (like, even adding a path node), so there'd be a mismatch for online games. People with v436 would have a different file than v469 users.

Re: MAPS - the best maps made by community

Could be saved as a separate file, so people would still have the .436 version and the fixed on top. Not the best solution but a solution nonetheless. In any event, it doesn't really belong into the best community maps. ;)

Re: MAPS - the best maps made by community

Might better work for the community patch as it can be included in a fix there.

Re: MAPS - the best maps made by community

That is, of course, if you mess with the original author's work. But that should only be for personal collection and fixing and not for redistribution UNLESS the author has personally given the okay. For the purposes of this thread I feel like sticking to the original works is the most respectful wa...

Re: MAPS - the best maps made by community

I've always considered the term community as the UT99 community as a whole. Wouldn't be right to not include all those really great maps by mappers just because they don't happen to be on this forum. Since Alexxxander isn't really active anymore however, it might be a good idea to reset this thread ...

Re: Unreal Tournament 469

Yes, merging textures can be an answer, but also it depends on internal names used for texture blocks. They used similar names for different texture and then... won't match some walls or causing borks - happened in MyLevels due to these similar names but different content of textures. These are a s...

Re: Some of my curiosity

Short answer: No. There is no reason you'd want to alter texture properties on something that is rendered invisible.

Re: Soundz Thread ^_^ = post your favourite tunes

YT algorythms are a weird yet sometimes beautiful thing.

It's a pretty mellow rock / stoner mix, perfect for kicking back with a brew.
