A new map, DM-Elik, post # 1

DM-Elik is my new map 😀

One of my all time favorite UT map is DM-1on1-Alzonia by Slainchild. I’ve decided to make my own map based on his layout. Of course, it’s not a remake and few changes as been added to fits UT4 movements, like wall run and slope dodge 🙂

DM-Elik is a duel focussed map so more than 2 players won’t be fun / balanced.

For DM-Elik, I’m using Epic Soul Cave assets. It was a very long and tedious to import all of that into UT and recreate everything from scratch (all materials functions, materials, materials instances) for all meshes!

The only server that has the map is ÐutchSmºke LoPing Arena. Still, you can download the map if you want to play it 😉 The actual version is alpha 1 but the pics are for the next release, beta 1.

Announcing the Epic Games Store

From Epic:

For the past five years, we’ve been building tools enabling Epic to bring our games directly to players. We built the Epic Games launcher on PC and Mac featuring Fortnite and Unreal Engine; we built a worldwide digital commerce ecosystem supporting dozens of payment methods; and we gained great economies of scale thanks to Fortnite’s growth.

As developers ourselves, we wanted two things: a store with fair economics, and a direct relationship with players. And we’ve heard that many of you want this too!

Soon we’ll launch the Epic Games store, and begin a long journey to advance the cause of all developers. The store will launch with a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac, then it will open up more broadly to other games and to Android and other open platforms throughout 2019.

DM-Akar, final!

Beta 1 as been available more than a month now so it’s time to make it final 🙂 I’m very happy to announce the final release of DM-Akar 😀

I’m trying to make the video but it’s not working… so I have to leave those old pics meanwhile.

DM-Akar, post # 4

This post is to let know the players that do like and play my maps that the next release of DM-Akar is going to be the final one. The next post will be the video I’m actually making and then the final release of the map. As always, if you do have interest for my work, leave a comment at DM-Akar page, or post at Epic forums 🙂

At first, I’ve planned to release a Release Candidate before the final version but since, except ÐutchSmºke on Epic forums, the rest of the community don’t care / comments on my maps, I assume there is no interest anymore for my maps or the game itself and that mean there is no interest to me for sharing my maps with the community, sadly 😦

The community total absence / lack of interest about the final release of DM-Aryth and DM-Aly was a enormous deception / let down for me. I’ve work for months on those maps and what was the community response, absolutely nothing, a big zero. This is the top of the top worst reaction a mapper can get from a community.

THX.
