Urban Terror 5: The April Update

in UrT Resurgence - posted Tuesday, 28 April 2020 by FrozenSand
Hello everyone, we hope you are all doing fine during this time of social distancing and maybe come together by enjoying a few rounds of Urban Terror with your friends from home! 😊

We have certainly kept ourselves busy and used some of that extra free time to bring Urban Terror 5 one step closer with the introduction of a new game mode, but also through the addition of the next batch of alpha testers, who have joined us over the course of last week.



So, what is that new game mode?


At the core of Urban Terror, we strongly believe in the gameplay that everyone has grown to love, moving quickly around the map by circle jumping, walljumps and powerslides. Over the past few months, we have seen an increase of older players coming back, and something that has been mentioned more than anything is just that: the movement.
To us, it is important to transport that feeling you know and love to the new Urban Terror 5, and to help us with fine-tuning, we now have the Jump mode in the game (thank you Barbie)!
To those who are already familiar with the current Jump mode in Urban Terror 4 this will sound familiar: being able to save and load positions as well as a timer to show off your best times to complete a map, among other features to make it a core game mode in Urban Terror 5.

Speaking of maps, to complement the new mode, we have introduced a short jump map that is now available to all our QA testers.





News from QA


As mentioned earlier, we expanded our team of QA testers. This time around we invited quite a few mappers to the mix to help us test our workflow for creating custom maps. It will be very interesting to see what they are able to come up with, but also see map conversions from Urban Terror 4 to the new engine and help our devs to have more information to work with.

From what we have been told by our longer standing QA team, in the beginning it could feel a little overwhelming, trying to get adjusted to the workflow, but there was a lot of positive feedback. Everyone is really finding their own footing in the project and welcomed all the new people to the team with a testing session only a few hours after they had joined us. Participation is great and we cannot wait to see what is going to happen next, especially with all the ideas for maps!



Let us know your thoughts – Question and Answers!


We realize that there might be some questions that still have gone unanswered. Maybe there is a suggestion you have for us? What would YOU like to see in the future?
We will be trying something new in the upcoming days!

During the next week we will be posting to our Reddit (don’t worry, we will remind you!) and that is your chance to have all of these answered. We will pick some of the questions and take the feedback into consideration and answer them in a separate post.
Take the opportunity, make your voice heard and support what you feel passionate about!


And finally..


We want to use this opportunity to give a big thank you to OhJay for all the work he has done for us.
You helped everyone where you could, and your updates were always engaging. We will miss your drive to push everyone and wish you all the best for your next chapter in life!

As an added bonus there will be prize money for the winners and potentially the runners up too!**

A message from FrozenSand

in Urban Terror - posted Sunday, 05 April 2020 by FrozenSand
Just a quick message to everyone in our community and beyond.

We sincerely hope all of you are keeping safe and healthy as possible during this period of uncertainty and crisis that we are facing.

Now more than ever we need to be more conscious of those around us that are struggling and in need of our support or a kind word. Quite often just showing a little bit of compassion can make all the difference.

"Are you OK?"

It doesn't cost you anything to say these three little words but it could mean the world to someone that thinks no one cares.

There is so much loss and loneliness and despair in the world right now if ever there was a time to set aside our differences and work together to help and support each other in any way we can, it is now.

Many people are now stuck at home by themselves without an income - and the future full of worry. During this time many will turn to games like Urban Terror to help lighten their day and relieve their loneliness as much as they can.

As they say, 'a burden shared is a burden halved'. By being amongst like-minded people who are all in the same situation together and supporting each can make a huge difference to someone's outlook on life in general.

So please take this time to be extra nice and respectful to new people (and old of course), and if possible put that socialite hat on and get to know people a little - make sure they are doing ok. This will bring the community closer together and help keep the environment fun and welcoming for all.

If we do this, maybe, just maybe, during games played or conversations held, we might be able to help people forget the situation they are in. Even just for a second or two.

Stay tuned for some cool events coming up.

Stay safe and close to those you care about. Tell the people you love that you love them as much as possible because one day they won't be there anymore.

A once in a hundred-year event they say...whatever it is we'll get through it together.

Nations Cup XXIII at Urban Zone

in Leagues - posted Tuesday, 03 March 2020 by FrozenSand
Ladies and gentlemen,

It’s been a fairly intense start of the year with the imminent start of the alpha testing for Urban Terror 5 and one of the most highly skilled Urban Zone cup in years!

It’s been only a few months since the last NationsCup took place. It seems as though it was just yesterday that France managed to defeat Argentina on Cambridge by six rounds.

Elevating to the outstanding number of 7 NationsCup gold cups, France is now again ahead of Portugal in the ALL-TIME RANKINGS.

We will be going through the captain designation process in the UZ forums in the next weeks. Note that players are still in time and free to apply to become the captain of their country, but competition experience is, of course, expected (find more info on the UZ). The NC staff is also looking for people ready to help them in the organization (GTV cameraman, streamers, newswriter, demo reviewing, etc). So please step up if you want to help!

Urban Terror's most awaited competition will be running after the following schedule:

•March 04 - Captain applications launched
•March 11 - Start of the captain's vote stage
•March 18 - End of voting stage, Captains announcement
•March 22 - Groups published
•March 30 - Start of the first match week

Isopropanol joins FS!

in Misc - posted Wednesday, 29 January 2020 by FrozenSand
A new addition to the team!


Many hands make light work as they say and with such a huge project we are always on the lookout for talented individuals that would complement our team and help us move forward just a little bit quicker.

Today must be our lucky day!

We have found one of these talented individuals that wouldn't mind coming aboard and donating some of his time - and he was the only person to have ever completed the gruelling 6 week long FS boot-camp that is mandatory for all new members - so we kinda have to recruit him now. Anyway, without further ado please welcome the newest member of FrozenSand, Isopropanol!

Iso's work will primarily be in the area of coding, which tells the computer what to do for the game to be played. He has the important task of working with HappyDay, Barbatos, and Arasseo making the game run as it should and fixing the bugs the alpha testers report.

On a personal level, this useful gentleman has been part of our community since 2013 and is both an avid player and server admin. His main professional focus has been developing for business for the past two decades - in his spare time dabbling in a few Android games here and there. This is his first foray into PC game development, but that won't stop him moving forward with full force!

A regular in the support channel on our official discord, Iso is often one of the first people to come to the rescue when things go wrong - as they tend to do when we mess about with our computers, right?

If you see him around be sure to say hello and wish him well with his journey into Urban Terror 5.

Stay tuned for our next new news!

Honourable mention to Krasus who is here too but never got his own welcome post.
