Preview - Suburbs Updated

in Maps & mapping - posted Thursday, 01 July 2010 by FrozenSand
The upcoming update to Suburbs provides quite a few improvements to the gameplay and overall look of the level, with Team Survivor and Bomb mode seeing substantial changes to overall playability.

Major changes to gameplay for Team Survivor. Roof access is more controlled to make the level as a whole less roof heavy, though there still is quite a bit of vertical play.
Updates to CTF consist of route adjustments and changes to spawn room cover.
Bomb mode has new bomb and spawn locations, and also has more controlled roof access. Fixed Bomb spawn bug.
Spawn points and flag locations have been changed for Capture and Hold. There are now three flags in Capture and Hold.
Targeted ambient lighting added to give shadowy areas simulated depth.
Updated all func_walls to match the architecture of the rest of the level.
Updated the skybox and added additional environmental areas.
Changed the internal configuration of the enterable buildings for faster egress.
Added more cover to gameplay areas.
Compiled with FS_q3map_Radbump_4!

New compiler modifications by Twentyseven provide radiosity bumpmapping and specular lighting goodness which stays crunchy, even in milk!

Smachine is a 22 year old Latvian student and a skilled modeler and texture artist. He is mostly interested in doing textures for level and model designers, and so we have asked him to make new textures for future releases of Urban Terror.

Return of the Apoxol

in Urban Terror - posted Thursday, 22 April 2010 by FrozenSand
It has been almost nine years, and many many updates later, but we are very happy to have Apoxol back to the Frozen Sand dev team! Apoxol formally quit development for UrT in the fall of 2001 to work for Raven.

this is what Urban Terror looked like back in 2001

Apoxol last worked on Urban Terror back in the UrT 2.3 days! As a very talented programmer he was involved with things like anti-lag, hit detection, the game code, maps, basically, pretty much everything.

Now Apoxol will be be doing pretty much everything again!

Urban Terror deemed dangerous!?!

in Misc - posted Wednesday, 14 April 2010 by FrozenSand

Urban Terror under investigation by German government authorities

The German government is making laws to protect the German youth from violent video games.
Their belief is that violent video games influence teenagers to think that killing people in real life is okay.

In a few weeks time, the German government will decide whether Urban Terror should be classified as a dangerous game!

The German commission may well decide that Urban Terror is too violent and should therefore be put on a list of "Dangerous Video Games for adolescents". Our website and game will then be blocked from schools and other institutions.

Obviously this will only apply to Germany.

See the original letter in German, and an explanation in English:


A quick interpretation of above German letter: Frozen Sand is invited to a hearing on the 6th of May 2010, in Bonn, Germany. During this hearing we can defend Urban Terror's loving nature in front of a special panel. We would have to put arguments forward why our game does not make psycho killers out of kids and why the game should not be deemed too dangerous.

You can read, even more, about the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (BPjM) receiving a official complaint from the Kommision für Jugendmedienschutz der Landesmedienanstalten (kjm) in this pdf PDF document.
Just be warned most of it is in German!

We are of course interested in your comments! Please post them here
