How goes the creation of maps by the community for UT4 in october 2015? Frankly, I have never seen so many maps in development for years! Every day, new maps appear in forums and they are so numerous that I have trouble following! This is certainly one of the strongest periods of maps development since UT99, which is saying something strong for a pre-alpha game that is now at its 4th edition in 16 years of history 😀
Just for the remakes, UT4 already count 120 and it continues to increase which is entirely unbelievable considering the game still has the pre-alpha status 🙂 We can easily imagine that with all items in development (GUI, maps, mods, skins, weapons, etc.) that will be added over the years will make UT4 the most popular and most successful of all UTs. A triumph in the FPS world!
For me, knowing that EU4 is free, having experience as a mapper and see all those pretty meshes, it makes me really want to map. However, I have very little time to play UT, so mapping is unfortunately unthinkable 😦 I wish, one day I’ll be able to map again and I would looooooove to remake some of my UT3 maps back in UT4!
I have to admit I am totally shocked by the number of maps in the WIP forum. I commented in Chonglee’s Deck thread and the next day it wasn’t even on the front page of the WIPs!
I hope you can map again some time Steve. Would be great to see. I’m dabbling at the moment myself but can’t piece together enough time to make a big push to complete something so I understand how you feel.
