Animator Tristan Cobb's adventures in modding and custom content for Unreal Tournament 3.
Posted by Tristikov on Feb 19th, 2013
I've been a fan of Unreal Tournament (and the original Unreal before it) since I picked up a copy of UT99 GOTYE at my local Staples store, and I have consistently played it throughout the years and enjoyed a variety of mods for it (especially ChaosUT), but I haven't ever published any of my own mods for an Unreal game (or any game, really) until now.
I believe that UT3 didn't live up to its predecessors as much as could be hoped, though I think it's still salvageable (at least with MapMixer), and the game is probably far past its prime as far as the community is concerned, but the game is extremely friendly to modders and custom content creators, so I figured I'd have a go at taking some of my animated characters and making game characters out of them.I'm going to individually package the handful of models I've built so far, and upload them here in a few days. I made them for myself primarily, both for fun and to practice using the software, but if anyone else enjoys playing with them, then even better!
