Hey there! Leather Jacket here (formerly LloydGarcia). This article is for everyone around ModDB that thinks Urban Assault is dead. Twenty years after it's initial release the game is pretty much alive and still kickin'

A lot of stuff happened over the past two years, so this article needed a lot of cleanup and updating (last update was during late 2018). First of all, the former "Offical" sever was shut down last year due to some controversy regarding power abuse and lack of freedom of expression by the former adminstrator Fragger. Needless to say, this server was never officialy approved nor endorsed by the former forum owner GoldStar611. After this event a new server was made, with a new administration composed of CharlotteLabyrinth, a really valuable member of the community who always hanged out in the forums and then became moderator, Deetex and Lilia. As months passed by GoldStar slowly faded away from the community, and the forums dissapeared alongisde him, as they were shut down early this year.

Don't panic! As the current staff roster, alongside a few volunteers are doing their best to bring back all the lost content asap, including the Forums, Wiki and making the FTP publicly accesible once more. Huge thanks to them for their effort on making the community a better place during these last few months.

UA:Source is still in active development by Zidane (Again,not the football player, but a UA player), and a lot of progress has been made since this post was last updated. Many of the issues present two years ago are hotfixed. Currently Zidane is working in a fully-functional recreation of multiplayer. It's still in early stages but it's a huge step towards making UA fully playable on modern OS without the issues that plaged the game ever since Windows 10 was released. Thanks to him as well for the great effort he's been doing for the community these past years.

Remember that you can have your original UA copy and Source on the same folder. Source uses a different .exe so your original files and game won't get modified at all. This means you can ultimately run the game and play multiplayer with UA.exe if you desire. For more info about installing Source please join Discord (linked above) and write your questions in the #tech-support channel.

Regarding Fan-Made Multiplayer Patches: 1.6 was released during late 2020 by me in colaboration with fellow members Fleurenz^Schweiz, MarioSDUX and pcsx . This new fan-patch finally got rid of the obsolete Helipatch (made by Bronsteijn24k) and replaced it with a new .exe fix made by Zidane and makes it easier to see which version of the "fanmade" patch you're playing by displaying the current version number in the Main Menu. No other mayor changes were made from 1.05.09 to 1.6 because we felt unit and map balance was good as it is right now and no other major issues were detected. However be aware that if we wanted to make any balance change people should vote whenever they agree or disagree with such changes first, since we're trying to avoid making any arbitrary changes based on biased opinions and without asking the community first, like MarioSDUX did when developing his "Fanmade 2.0" patch with the intention to replace 1.05.09.

We strongly encourage the use of either Vanilla version or the fanmade 1.6 Patch when playing Multiplayer games on either Hamachi or Gameranger. Please do not cheat, our community is really small and only a bunch of people play multiplayer, don't make this experience something bad for them. Be kind and let them have a fair fight!

Regarding any future updates, i'm going to quote a message from the Discord Sever back when 1.6 was first released (07/11/2020):

For now, there are no plans of releasing a 1.7 patch until Zidane gets Open:UA full Multiplayer support. We're very limited on what we can do. [...] We're just providing continous support to 1.6.

Grab your 1.6.0 Copy Here.

Last but not least quick PSA my UA-related channel was deleted due to inactivity and lack of interest in updating more content. You can still find UA-related videos in MarioSDUX's channel (with the now obsolete 1.05.09 Patch)

This game Community is just not fun, beautiful and free like it once was.

This game Community is just not the same it was, there is more love for power than more love for each other and it is so sad to see that.

There is outright mind control and false narratives. Don't believe the false prophet.

Have freedom of thought, freedom of expression, what was once a beautiful and thriving thing is now tarnished forever.

Bravo, what a great story! Now don't forget kids, I believe that goldstar611 left because of the current management roster and a very large antagonist who I believe has carte blanch to do whatever he wants behind the scenes. But bravo again on how goldstar611 slowly faded away, what a pleasant way to go.

I really love Urban Assault !!! By the way, I'm developing a new urban assault.
More technology More varied levels. Urban Asault is a game of my childhood. But they quickly forget about it ... Masterpieces always disappear early !!! This is sad...

This is my CHILDHOOD! loved this game and i've dabbled with the modded campaigns. Such a good job! Although the campaigns were a bit....off balance a bit. Like the Taerkasten Units should probably be a bit cheaper when controlled by the player and vice versa so the AI who control the Resistance can't create a billion units and send them at you like they did to me in the past lol. Is there a place on this site I can download the newest campaigns? I'd love to try the new Taerkasten campaign if anyone created it!
