Nations Cup IX: Come One, Come All

in Leagues - posted Friday, 16 December 2005 by FrozenSand
For the first time in Clanbase Nations Cup history, they will adopt more than one game mode to play throughout this cup season. Unlike seasons past where the gaming was Team Survivor, Capture the Flag or Bomb Mode, the cup supervisors have decided to incorporate all three game modes into Nations Cup IX. "You see, a community is hard to please, and in Urban Terror's case, you have the CTF fans, the bomb lovers and the TS adherents. We believe the best way to conciliate everyone is actually to mix the fun! says kan, one of two Nations Cup supervisors who will oversee the cup, working with admins, GTV and shoutcasters to make this the best cup so far. There will be five qualifying rounds, Team Survivor on Casa & Abbey, Capture the Flag on Pgrounds, Bomb & Defuse on Sanctuary & Nimrod, Team Survivor on Uptown & Turnpike and Capture the Flag on Algiers to close out the first five weeks. The playoffs will be setup similar, with Team Survivor, Capture the Flag and Bomb & Defuse being played each playoff round. All nations are welcome to participate in this cup. If you want to be a Captain for your nation, get your application complete and e-mail it to Clanbase Supervisors. Enrollment for Nations Cup IX will close on December 28, so get going, get your team formed. For more information check out the Clanbase Nations Cup IX web site. Best of luck to all nations participating!

Levels Development Update

in Urban Terror - posted Wednesday, 30 November 2005 by FrozenSand
While some developers toil on the nuts and bolts of the mod, the level designers continue to work on a plethora of levels. Most of the levels that will be released have been modified or updated from their previous release. Last week we showed off some work that had been done on Rommel (originally by Bar-B-Q) and Austria by Tub.

This week we present two other levels of interest, one of which is a virtual unknown. Why is that? Because until now no one has viewed of played this level inside Urban Terror. As many know, Tub has been a machine, working on problem areas, while improving the look and playability of his levels. Said Tub, "mmm, it's good to be finally releasing this stuff. I've been sitting on Austria for a year now and damn, I really want to see people playing it! For me this release will mean a final closing of the q3ut3 door."

The other levels being development that will be included in the Urban Terror release come from MaSheeN. You might remember him from his work on Eagle. His level Crossing has been featured on the web site previous. But we also get work from him we will see an all new level called Ambush.

Join Oswald as he takes you "inside the game" with Urban Radio, the show that centers on all things Urban Terror. The show has been on hiatus for the past 6 months, but with an influx of news, along with leagues starting up, the show will return each week. As with past shows, we ask for community participation. Each week, we will (hopefully) showcase a community server as the Urban Radio Server of the Week. I believe all the bugs are worked out of my shoutcast system, so we could even be taking some calls during the show. We will also talk to development team members and get their take on development. All that and the latest news from the Urban Terror home front! If you are not able to catch the show live, all casts are made available on the 'Files' section at Radio iTG (no registration required). Information contained in the show will be posted in a Radio Roundup news post following the show. Watch for upcoming show information or type !radio in #urbanterror on ETG. This week also begins live coverage of the Clanbase Fall 2005 Open Cup. Matches scheduled to be covered live on Radio iTG include: Wed 23 Nov - Die NixBlicka v Nemesis Corp Thu 24 Nov - The Syndicate v derbe`urt Sun 27 Nov - SOM GORSI v Gamesense Check Radio iTG, Clanbase Fall 2005 Open Cup or the Urban Radio tab on our web site for start times (all times noted in PST not GMT).

Worlds of Wonder

in Urban Terror - posted Saturday, 19 November 2005 by FrozenSand
For those who seem to still be under that proverbial rock, we ARE working on another release for Urban Terror...the Quake III variety. I am sure this is news that is long overdue, right? What started out as a rather small "update" continues to grow to behemoth size.

The level designers have been busy at work, updating, modifying, gussying up their levels. Some of the more notable levels that have received some sort of update have been Algiers and Austria from Tub. He is currently looking at supplementing the release with an updated version of Alps that was created by Flash. No word on futher work on Abbey (CTF). ShminkyBoy has been tweaking and toying with Suburbs, while newcomer, Riche has been putting his time into Thingley (which I know some have seen playing on the test server) and Elgin.

We have enlisted the assitance of Sinni who is doing some techincal work on Santuary (orginally done by Bar-B-Q). Would you believe there has been further work accomplished on Rommel? Yeah, seems BladeKiller cannot put it down. As RabidCow explains, "ok, that's been an exercise in pain...BK was having trouble compiling Rommel because the bridge kept getting sparklies and cracks that couldn't be fixed...I decided I would replicate it in [3D Studio]'s the same visually but the tris (296 compared to 880) are less than half, so its been worth it, all sparklies are gone!" There have been some other strucutal portions of Rommel rendered in Max, such as the large, curved pieces on the tower.
