It's quite unfortunate that hardly anyone plays UT3 online.

because ut3 is crap after a week of playing. The engine is nice and all but most consumers dont actually mod or even know about ut3 mods

I agree that I just finally got UT3 just for all the MODs that are coming out. However, I waited until UT3 was dirt cheap since I really didn't like the actual game. Its ashame to hear not many play online since I am just about to jump into the UT3 mods. Well you can count one more ;)

i honestly prefer the first 2. i just wish ut 2k4 wasnt taken over by custom crap

The custom stuff is what made UT2k4 one of my favorite games of all time.

Trickjumping (bunnytracks), racing, RPG, and more just by simply joining an online server with that in the name.

There is still hordes of regular assault and onslaught servers as well as DM and instagib, and great communities on each server.

ut3 removed the 2 best gamemodes, being invasion and assault. The most easily customized gamemodes for modded servers without actually making a mod. RPG has been attempt and actually works quite well on UT3, but I don't believe it will live up to its UT2K4 counterpart. Invasion probably isn't in UT3 because there hasn't been an UNREAL 3 yet.

I got under 15 fps at some maps so for me it's just bad performance.
If I lower the gfx settings the game looks too crap to identify objects properly.

I can run UT3 on decent settings on my old XP, which is single core 1.799GHz, 1GB ram, and an Nvidia Geforce 9600GT.

If you can't run UT3, something is seriously off on your computer.

The contest is set up so that when you upload to the Make Something Unreal site for your submission, it's uploaded to FilePlanet. A lot of mods also upload to alternative sites, but you may need to check the mod's page or release threads on sites like Beyond Unreal to find them.

It's a shame a bunch of these mods don't seem to have a descriptive site or something somewhere. I mean, unfortunately, my internet connection isn't fast enough that I'm willing to download half a GB just for idle curiosity.

Oh man, I played the "Hazard: The Journey of Life" mod... It's amazing. So fun and just an awesome concept all together. I wish they had a ModDB page. I give it a 10/10 with infinity gold stars.

I really hope you guys win. Your mod has so much potential gameplay wise. If the music and visuals are any indication as well, Airborn is more than just another mod, it's a milestone for the modding community.

Hey Dremth.

I'm glad you liked the game. Unfortunately, I never made a moddb page for the game because I never felt it was quite "finished". I'm still working on it, and would give it a moddb page if I thought it needed one, but never got around to it. Too many bugs for my liking. I'm aiming to hopefully have something with the same gameplay but fewer bugs and more optimisation by the end of October.

That's ironic. The good mods don't get a page out of modesty... but the crappy mods get a page because they don't have any real content.

I see it coming down to 4 possible winners
The Ball, The Haunted, Renegade X (Though may not win since it's a recreation mod), and AFF... Though I will say I have yet to play warmgun so that may be one that I think could win...

What about prometheus? or airborn?

They are all high quality mods, and are all mostly going to start towards retail quality for an official retail release.

i think the next haunted update should add weapons. maybe another weapon class. an axe in between the knife and chainsaw, an m8 automatic rifle in between the ak and the m60... maybe hand explosives for another class; like molotoves/pipe bomb/grenade/better grenade/.. something like that. anyone else feel the same way?

I can't get any of the UT3 mods working online

not even renegade
I think it has something to do with my router and portforwarding
but when I setup the port.... it just deletes my settings and goes to standards :(

Go Haunted ! GO HAUNTED !

I really hope renegade x dont win.
In fact i think its pretty much impossible for them to win, recreation mods cannot win a cash prize...It would be unfair on the other mod teams.

I mean, if renegade x win, they cant exactly go retail with their game. (They could pay EA the money and hope EA say yes...LOL)

I hope haunted win, it was the most fantastic experiance i have had in survival horror for a long time. I loved it.

= / The comment was doubled, how could it happen?

To elaborate a bit, now RenX is planned to be a free game running on UDK, after the contest is over. :-) So it can be even better... :->

Best luck to all once again, and without any prejudice.
