Happy New Year from FS!

The Frozen Sand team wishes everybody a Happy New Year



In the past year, Urban Terror celebrated its 21st birthday, and with that, we've made a small tribute to the history of UrT.

We also released the mapping plugin for Urban Terror 5: Resurgence, so community mappers could start learning and creating maps in UE4 for the next generation of this fantastic game.

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.

Nations Cup 2019 finals are underway!

in Misc - posted Monday, 02 December 2019 by FrozenSand
Who will emerge victorious?

After a few weeks of intense competition and matches we finally have the last two remaining nations, France against Argentina in the final!

These two are going to play against each other next Sunday (December 8th 22:00 CET) for the NationsCup XXII title. (Bare in mind the date and time could change but you will find information about that in the Community Discord) This match is going to be decided by the majority winner of best of 5 maps.

Both teams have shown amazing teamwork and strength over the past little while so it's set to be one of those matches you don't want to miss out on!
While France have played a lot of Capture The Flag, they've proved their dominance in that game-mode over and over again. Argentina have shown very high skill in Team Survivor and have won 9 out of the 10 last played maps...it looks like whoever is better at their weaker game-mode will take the trophy.

We have a couple of matches being played in the meantime starring the unlucky runners up to France and Argentina. These teams still have their pride on the line and aren't going to go down without a fight! They will be battling it out for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th spots on the ladder.

Belgium vs Columbia for the 3rd and 4th spot.

North America vs The winner of ( Australia vs Germany) For the 5th and 6th spot.

As always, all matches will be streamed on twitch.tv/urbanzone/ so be sure to follow the channel and watch the matches live with the rest of the community. The match for the 3rd spot will be streamed and broadcasted live by SevenofNine tonight.

Battle of the Artists!

in Misc - posted Friday, 29 November 2019 by FrozenSand
Calling all artists and creative types out there!

How would you like to be a part of history in the making and add your own special mark to Urban Terror 5? If so now is the time to put those skills to the test in our FrozenSand 'Battle of the Artists'!

Here's the deal. We're in need of a bunch of artwork to help us decorate the maps with and we'd like you guys to help us make it. So we've decided to hold a competition!

If you want to help out of course... you know, we would never force anyone... and we would definitely never make special shirts for all those that didn't join in saying "Kick me" or "Not a team player" and make your character wear them for eternity... :P

So we'd do this ourselves however last time the bosses came down from level 72 to check up on our progress with the game they caught us drawing pictures and we were forced to swap job roles with Steve down in 'plumbing obstructions'. So we try to stick to the more important stuff these days. We think it's probably best for everyone.

Anyway, what we are after are 'painting' type artworks that we can 'hang' on the walls. Like one would normally do with paintings and such arty things. It could be anything though! Posters, advertising, business signs... even graffiti!

Don't get me wrong our walls look great and the FrozenSand 'wall builders' have gone above and beyond the call of duty... but let's see if we can't pretty them up a bit hey.

As for conditions or criteria for entry - there aren't any. We're not going to give you any real guidelines apart from just use your common sense and have some fun with it. On a slightly serious note though - you do need to know when you submit your artwork you are forfeiting all rights to it and it becomes ours. We just have to say that to protect us down the track from anything untowards if you know what I mean. For example, when we are millionaires with our own private islands because we've made the best game in the world ever we can't have some disgruntled artist wanting one of our islands because their artwork was in one of our maps somewhere. If you want to read the actual t&c's or guidelines of entry click here.

Some hints to help - you know Urban Terror, and you know at least 3 maps we have mentioned that will definitely be in Urt5, and you have seen the artwork that populates the walls in the current version so you kinda know what may suit and what may not. ;)

Finally, winners will not be announced. We're not going to tell you that your artwork has been chosen and make a big thing of it like, "Yay Steve! Your painting has been chosen to be nailed to the pillars in Turnpike"...nope. That would ruin the surprise! When the time comes you will just have to play it and thouroughly inspect each map and see what surprises you can find! There will be a credit for the artwork in some form that is to be decided.

As far as submitting your works, you can post it publicly in reply to this on the forums (see the link down the very bottom), or you can send it to us privately, totally up to you. It would be super cool to post it on the forums so everyone can see, admire, and have a chat about it, but again totally up to you. :)

Oh and we found a spot for that coffee mug from JohnnyEnglish... ;)

Good luck and may the force be with you!

Welcome Slis! QA extraordinaire!

in Misc - posted Wednesday, 11 September 2019 by FrozenSand
Welcome Slis! QA extraordinaire!

After a long selection process we have finally found the perfect fit for our QA Manager position. His name is 'Slis' and we are happy to welcome him into the team!

Slis and his quality assurance team will be tasked with thouroughly testing the game to make sure it's ready for the next stage of development. To do that they follow a strict set of guidelines to systematically find bugs and make sure they can be replicated. They then document and submit them to the developers for a fix. It's up to him to make sure that these guidelines are adhered to and the final product meets the highest standards.

To give you a little background on Slis; he is an Electrical Engineer by trade and has a lot of experience in the quality assurance industry heading his own teams for the likes of IBM amongst others. Currently in his day job he works with computer automation and electronics. He doesn't have a huge amount of experience with Urban Terror like some of us, but for this position that's not really a bad thing at all, and will actually work in his favour.

So if you get a chance to speak with him you will quickly realize that he is very switched on and doesn't miss a beat whilst having a great eye for detail and making sure things are done the right way the first time. We think he is going to be a great addition to the team and someone we can trust to make sure the game we all love will be perfect when it comes to release.

When you see him around the place please give him a big welcome and a pre-emptive 'thankyou' for making sure this game is set to knock our socks off!

A manager of communities, or as we like to call him, Community Manager!

in Misc - posted Sunday, 25 August 2019 by FrozenSand
We have had a new addition to our team recently; a gentleman by the name of Ne0. Actually he joined a couple of weeks ago now but we thought we'd give him some time to acclimatize a bit before dropping him in the deep end at the mercy of everyone! :P

From here onwards Neo is now the first point of contact for community members regarding accounts or anything else game related. If you want to know something go to him first and if he doesn't know he can surely find the person that does! Saves a lot of running around!

Neo comes from Germany and has been around the place for quite a while - from regular pubs, icy jumps, competitive playing, being involved in Urban Zone and as an admin on various discord servers - so there is a pretty good chance you already know him. We thought it's about time we gave him an official title and put him to official use - our new Community Manager!

If you want to contact him you can either hit him up on our official discord (link below) using the tag @communitymanager, email (also below), or just yell really, really loudly. Probably start with the first two though I'd say. :P

KNOCKOUT is back - First 2016 edition !

in Misc - posted Saturday, 19 March 2016 by FrozenSand

Sunday the 27th of March at 15:00 CET, Urban Zone will be hosting a KNOCKOUT tournament. The event will be streamed on twitch.tv/urbanzone and the reigning Crimzon will be defending his belt.

It's been over a year now since the last edition, and as France just won NationsCup XIX with flying colours, Urban Terror's eSport scene needs some more challenges in the go!

Competition wise as an event KnockOut is two hours of non-stop action where rules of fair play become a suggestion and where rules are broken by but not limited to shoutcasters narcing out campers as well as players not able to handle the pressure and intentionally lemming off of tall buildings if just for the shear entertainment value. Nothing better than participating or watching the broadcast to get a good picture. :)

How can you sign up?

Signups will be done through the Urban Zone website, this news post has all the details. The first 15 to reply to this news post get a spot. If you aren’t one of the lucky fifteen, don't get discouraged and sign up anyway – some people always drop out and you can take up their place.
