These rules are in no way meant to curtail the fun we've all grown accustom to. Comments and remarks made in obvious jest are allowed.
The development team asks you not to modify Urban Terror or its resources files in any way. Please respect their choice. Do not create threads about this.
If you wish to modify a map, you must contact the original mapper for permission as they hold a copyright on their created works.
