Snowreal is a 3rd person Snowboarding Mod for Unreal Tournament 3. Race down one of 4 massive-scale maps or show your spectacular skills in a trick competition. Switch from vast snow landscapes to a tension-packed ride over dangerous lava streams down a volcano, back to a tricky alpine slalom course.
Snowreal - the revolution of snowboarding games!

Snowreal v1.2 Snowreal v1.2

* 2 games modes: racing and trick competition
* 5 different board skins, depending on your character
* 4 massive maps for downhilling action and trick jumping
* 16 different chain-able tricks
* Remote camera - watch yourself doing stunts and record your own trick video!
* Mini-Map - shows you other players and checkpoints. It also points you to the next checkpoint in racing mode.

* Onscreen Nametags
* Works with custom characters

-What's New?
The new version 1.2 brings you an AutoCam that makes controlling your snowboard even easier, and an all-new map - "SR-Eruption"! SR-Eruption features a 3-minute ride down a volcano. The track is split into 2 parts - The first part is marked with red flags, the second with blue flags. Two parts - double fun! Watch out for the lava!
If you have a Sixaxis controller you can control everything without pressing a single button, just by tilting your gamepad.

###########################
Changelog v1.2
###########################
- AutoCam - You don't have to worry about your camera anymore! Just tilt your Sixaxis Controller left and right and enjoy the ride.
You can still get your Free Camera by pressing 'Fire' two times.
- Cruise Control for the Snowboard. You don't have to hold down 'forward' all the time. Just go faster than walking speed and it will go full throttle by itself. Hold 'back' to reduce your speed now.
- Bug fixed: Trick animations not showing right on client.
- Bug fixed: Removed camera lagging when being teleported.
- More minor bugfixes

Still uncertain?
Read what others had to say about the mod:

BananaXtreme - "My mate almost got a heart attack bcuz of the fun he had :D!"
Viper7 - "you basically made the first snowboarding game for ps3, gratz for that"
techadoo.com - "Now for something definitely cooler. Like a couple degrees Fahrenheit cooler. [...] some of the fans' creativity let loose with wild abandon."

Excellent work i Play this On my ps3.
Love the lava on the new map, loving the new control scheme, we need some more tricks and stuff, maybe some player skins? and a lotta board skins too!
Also could you please use icecap zone (either original or remix) from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 on sega megadrive/genesis? It would suit a map really well.
overall Excellent mod i get a lot of fun out of it already :) hope to see more done to it though!
Custom sounds now available on PS3 Btw
1.Convert a video to .bink format (ut3s proprietry)
2.Import into Ued As A texture

Not only will your video play but the sound from the video too, you dont even have to have any video playing it could just be a black screen!

Unreal 3 mods certainly arent very popular or in number but the few there are are pretty interesting. I hope this version will actually work this time. :) The last version just crashed over and over and multiple people had this problem so I never had a chance to try it out. Hopefully this is more stable than the last!

Still waiting on a self built mod, like Ut2k4 and all source mods. I know Ut3 has the capability. Even if Epic has gone downhill and degraded over time it wouldn't make sense for them to remove modding features especially since Unreal is their main game. Running mods through the actual games are so last generation. ;) Especially since this looks like its going somewhere.

I thought gears of war was their new main game?
and ut2k4 doesn't have any "self built mod" (arn't all mods self built?)
but i'm not exactly sure what you mean by that so i might be wrong. But if you mean it can run without having the original game, then you are wrong.

The latest patch that came out for UT3 fixed a lot of things that were messed up.... It made the mods that I had run better at least and everything work that is supposed to... And I think there focus hasn't been on UT3 ever.... it was just a game to release the engine cause everyone at epic is more interested in Gear of War
