The Deluge (Unreal Tournament Mods)

June 8th, 2004 by Crusader

The deadline for Phase III of Epic’sMake SomethingUnreal contest (“Phase 3… requires your mod works on UT2004″) hasbrought a torrent of mods upon the UT2004 community, all competingfor server space and mindshare.

  • Red Orchestra 2.1was released (patchdownload); changes include the requisite bugfixes and the addition of anoverhead map. As mentionedpreviously,Red Orchestra is a WWII mod focused on the European Eastern Front.
  • Anomaly alpha 0.2 can now bedownloaded, aracing mod that looks inspired by the SNES classic F-Zero (thanksBeyondUnreal).
  • Unreal Annihilation is a real-timestrategy mod that echoes the gameplay of Total Annihilation. There areversions for UT2003 and UT2004; mirrors can be foundhere.
  • As mentioned a few days ago,the AirBuccaneers mod, which has PIRATES fighting one another in BLIMPS (it’simpossible for this concept to suck) and the 1.1 patch forAlien Swarm are out also.

Many more mods than listed above were also released; fortunately, supernewbieof the official UT2004 forums has compiled a modrelease list to help everyone keep track of what’s out there. There’s someI haven’t even had a chance to look at yet, so be sure to peruse the post and subsequentdiscussion for anything that looks interesting.

    not sure I really care since the linux community can’t make MOD’s …would be nice but I guess we aren’t important enough to bother with a version of maya light…or unrealED even I guess..

    or i’m wrong ( hope so ) and its in the works ;-)..cause then they’d see more support for their products of course..

    here’s hoping someone is doing it ;-)
