Thats right folks! The non-canon mappack for Blue Portals, Extended Play, has now been released on Desura! To update your Blue Portals to the newest version, click on the shortcut and allow it to verify the files. Once verfied, Desura will compare what you've got (1.4.1) to the new release (1.5). After that, the new files will start downloading. Once completed, it will be under "Bonus Content".
It's recommended by us that you only install the new and updated stuff only, as some of you might have stuff for the contest or custom content. And on defult settings, Desura will delete your custom content. So take caution in that! If you have any problems with Desura downloading the update, contact Desura support.
Speaking of custom content, the Blue Portals Mapping Competition hosted on PlanetPhillip.com is nearing its conclusion. Next week, we will be releasing an updated SDK file here on ModDB and packaged on Desura including the updated campaign vmfs. However, the Desura version of the SDK will include all of the Extended Play maps in vmf form. But for both files, the SDK will also have updated (and new prefabs and instances!), too.
After the winners are announced, all of the entries will be released on Planetphillip.com. (We will link it.) So you don't need to download Desura to play the maps since there's really no point in updating contest entries down the line. Though, we will choose our favorite maps and add them in officially.
Sorry for the short article, we were planning on just uploading Extended Play to Desura, but we needed a way to let you guys know it was coming. Extended Play will be officially released out of Desura on our 'Clearance Update'.
Thanks as always:
