It has been a very long time coming, and I'm sure our fans are going to be very eager to see some more progress on this ambitious multiplayer modification. We have rebuilt the team from nearly scratch, and things have been coming together quite nicely ever since the restart.

Our team has been working hard on some 3d models as well as our first, nearly finished map, the United Kingdom Castle map. We hope to have it done and fully playable soon, but in the meantime, we have prepared a few nice screenshots of the map. Also, we have a katana weapon in game right now, with more weapons planned to be added soon. So, without further ado, here's a few examples of what we've been working on.

Levels - UK Castle 01 Levels - UK Castle 03
Levels - UK Castle 04 Levels - UK Castle 13

The exterior walls of the castle are still a work in progress, and we have a few bugs to work out on the area surrounding the keep and the inside of the keep itself. Also, we still have a few tweaks to do to the katana before it's done, and we're in progress of adding a spear and a few of the ranged weapons.

For the ability programming, things are going slow due to some unknown issues with the code. We could really use the help in the programming department. If you can help out with this area and can stick with this mod full time, contact me at lordneptune@gmail.com.

@tibz
Thanks :D

@Niclas
Well the castle would be used for like King of the Hill and there will be four bases around the castle which will be used for like Capture the flag and stuff.

@bluseychris
well the out side of the castle was based on a real castle. If you search through google images you may just find it.
And thats a good idea about the lights. (maybe small hanging chandeliers would be better)

Once again thanks for the comments everyone. :)

(BTW: If anyone would like to join the team that would be awsome) :D

Almost all of those textures are too modern. Peoplel neither used concrete, not did they have industrial production of bricks back then.

First, it's "GORDON" not Gordan of Gorden..
Second, uh, doesn't look that great...too square and blocky, too fullbrightishly lit.
Bad texture use, very repeating and all around dull.

Sorry.

@TKAzA -
OK, we'll play with the camera orinetation of the katana. :)

@makkE-
:D this is more of a modern castle. (read more about the mod) Its pretty much arenas being built in the future to kinda look like there from different time periods, for the EvEnt Soldiers to battle in. Really no restrictions on what it should look like.

@Alone_In_The_Dark -
:) ya we took pics of the brightest side of the castle. :D
and um, i thought castles were supposed to be blockish.

We thank you all for you comments.

Which one is it meant to be? Or is it just inspired by some you visited?
Either way ditch the hanging lights, in a room that size you use wall mounted candels.
