This is part of what I am liking about this forum. Lots of great advice and tips from "The Swanky!!!" :lol2:
Ok, lots of info, will have to read carefully, meanwhile I will start with this:

First of all, most of all UT maps were made back in the late 90's and early 2000's meaning they were very 90's influenced.
Yes, I think this is part of what keeps me coming back to this game. The 90s are my decade. Well, the 80s too, but I grew up and still listen to a lot of grunge bands. These "modern" games have this weird "millennial" feel, don't know exactly how to describe it, but they feel odd. Also happens with the music, and the movies in some way, although there have been a few good movies recently.

@ Any mod, do we have a list of resources post pinned somewhere?
You mean like our new subs
Mapping-Resources
and
Mapping-Tutorials
By request we collected them in those sub-forums for better readability of the Mapping section.

They are selectable when you go into the Mapping section on top of it.

You don't need mapping advice, I seen a cool real life picture, of a small castle. Like a good shot, it was all white, walls, round tower and two angle peaks on top of housing-windows, small security area room you see as you enter from the brick road., top 45 degree like if you were at the corner node of a brush looking down.

I could see it possible for UT like a great EASY one.

But then reality creeps in and the editor (still can be done idea), so it's your chore to produce a killer map. :tu: :)

Looking good, the map is still in very early stages but I can already picture how entertaining it's going to be when it's completed. :tu:
