Terror on Turnpike

in Urban Terror - posted Wednesday, 28 March 2007 by FrozenSand
As stated late week on Urban Radio and posted on the Urban Terror web site, the release for Urban Terror is scheduled for April 1 beginning at 13PDT/20BST. The team is looking forward to a great release, but we still have a few days to kill before releasing the actual game files. So in order to fill that void, we will "bring the terror" to you in images from inside Urban Terror. Here's the first sampling of images from the updated version of the level, ut4_turnpike.




EDIT: You can see 9 more images from Turnpike over at this thread in the Urban Terror Forums.

After nearly 8 years and four major versions, FrozenSand, LLC (formerly Silicon Ice Development) is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Urban Terror (v4.0). As mentioned on Urban Radio with Oswald this past Saturday (March 24), the upcoming release will take place on Sunday, April 1 beginning at 13PDT/16EST/20BST/21CET.

•All new player models, skins and animations.
New hit detection system
20+ updated levels of terror
8 new Urban Terror levels
Addition of statistics to the UI.
Updated user interface
"funstuff" to personalize your character
New features: Power sliding, goomba stomp and hot potato

Video: Uptown

in Urban Terror - posted Tuesday, 27 March 2007 by FrozenSand
As mentioned last week during Urban Radio Uptown by BattleCow will be included in the upcoming release. This is great news for all those gamers who saw some of the older, "classic" levels being left out of this release due to not being updated.

Thankfully BladeKiller did not have enough to do, so she decided to update the level the past few weeks. This level has continued to go through testing as the QA testers work with her on making sure the level will have solid game play.

You can see some the updated Uptown, as we created a short video of it. This video will take you on a tour through the entire level. Many of the changes are quite noticable, such as buildings around the upper areas to close in the level, new models updated lighting and some changes that will be left up to you to spot.

The video can be access by clicking on VIDEOS over at the Urban Radio page, hosted by Stickam Video. We also posted a new video of the NVGs, as there has been some discussion on the forums about the changes done to the goggles. Enjoy the show. Look for more videos this week!

BattlEye Support for ioUrbanTerror

in UrT software (io) - posted Monday, 26 March 2007 by FrozenSand
When using Urban Terror without Quake 3 Arena (using ioUrbanTerror), it's not possible to use PunkBuster. Although it's possible to have a game without an anti-cheat system, we all know it's better to have a protection from at least the public cheats that are out there.

We are therefore glad to report that the developer of BattlEye agreed to make BattlEye support available for ioUrbanTerror. It's not yet sure if it will be available as soon as Urban Terror is released, but it can easily be added later with an ioUrbanTerror update if needed. If this anti-cheat system turns out to work well, there's no reason to keep using PunkBuster any longer, which means the community will no longer be split up between old school and new players.

Although this is very good news, there's also a drawback. BattlEye works on Linux and Windows only. It does not support Mac clients (yet). The developer did say there's a possibility of support for Mac clients in the future, if a good Mac coder can help accomplish it. As a temporary 'solution', Mac users can play at servers that don't use BattlEye, or use bootcamp to play though Windows. We are aware of the great community members out there that use Macs and we regret that it isn't available for them from the start, but we believe the importance of having an anti-cheat system outweighs this fact.

in Leagues - posted Friday, 23 March 2007 by FrozenSand
It's time for you to "get in the game" as Urban Terror and Clanbase gear up for another cup season. The sign ups for the Spring 2007 Open Cup have been extended through Sunday, March 25. Currently the Cup Supervisors are planning on using the upcoming release for the entire cup. This is great! So if you were waiting for an announcement on the release, I suggest you get your clan signed up immediately.

Unlike previous Open Cups, this season the featured game mode will be Bomb & Defuse. This decision was not solely a supervisor decision, but one backed by the Urban Terror gamers who participate in Clanbase. For more information and news on the upcoming Spring 2007 Open Cup visit Clanbase or #clanbase.q3.ut and talk to dan or holden.

Urban Terror Videos

in Media - posted Saturday, 10 March 2007 by FrozenSand
Similar to the video tour last weekend on Urban Radio, we have created a few new videos. While the quality if adequate, hopefully these videos will give you some idea what to expect as we close in on the release date (still yet unannounced).

The videos feature Austria, Elgin, Mandolin, Thingley and a new interior from Turnpike. Yes, we are aware the quality of these short videos are not the best, but it will allow you an inside look at the upcoming releae of Urban Terror.

To access the levels, you need to go to the Urban Radio page and click on 'VIDEOS' it will allow access the the five videos we have put together. We will plan on a few more shorts before the release.

Urban Radio Recap - 03 March

in Urban Radio - posted Monday, 05 March 2007 by FrozenSand
Well, the good news, Urban Radio was live and uncensored yesterday with Oswald filling the community in on all the details for the yet announced release of Urban Terror (v4.0 if you are keeping score at home). The bad news, sort of a double whammy, there was no release date annouced (yet, it's coming...honest!) and the live video tour of Urban Terror did have a few technical issues.

All in all, many were still excited about the show and the fact they got to see some of the new levels, such as Mandolin, Elgin and Tombs. Gamers also got to look at what the development team calls, "fun stuff" that include unique items you can outfit your player with. We talked a little bit about the ability to pull up in game statistics during the round, as well as a plethora of other news from the world of Urban Terror.

If you missed the and would like to listen to it recorded, you can download the 03 March show from FileCloud. The show notes are also availble for download. If you don't want to waste any time, you can head to Urban Radio on Stickam Video and listen to the show immediately. I am also working on some new video features, we hope to implement in the future, but for now we will remain with iTG and Stickam until further details are worked out.

Urban Radio. Today!
