Major technology upgrade - AirBuccaneers mod ported to UT2004! It is time to heat up your balloons and load your cannons. The graceful air ballet and fierce pirate-like action is back with a vengeance. Immensely original, slightly weird and definitely loads of fun!
The latest version of AirBuccaneers (Beta 4) UT2004 mod is available for download:
Some of the new features for Beta 4 include:
- Game runs on UT2004 (some of the code rewritten and optimized)
- 8 maps with different game types (redone all old maps and added 3 new maps)
- Balloons use the new vehicle code, more reliable with better collisions
- Full bot support added, bots now fly balloons and fire cannons just like human players
- Rocket cannon shot (load cannon with airmines) in addition to flamethrower shot (load cannon with gunpowder pouches)
- Rope added (press jump while in mid-air and below a balloon to activate)
- New character models: "Jarka Juntta" (male) and "Pikkulukki" (female)
- Gametypes include Moving Domination Target, Treasure Hunt, Domination and Team Deathmatch
- Graphical improvements, more effects, new sounds and effect improvements
- Gameplay has been balanced by modifying attributes of balloons, items, objectives, scores, etc.
