UT Classic Pack ]I[ at 11:11 AM EDT by HourencesMapping News

Lighting Hunter and Leo have released their third UT Classic Pack, this time featuring around 30 DM levels.

This hefty map pack contains thirty-four handpicked classic maps from the original Unreal, converted over to Unreal Tournament manually. Among the conversions are four maps from the GW Press Add-On Level pack - made by official Epic mappers back in the day. This add-on has since been lost and is very hard to come by. Other conversions include earlier works from authors who work for Epic today, along with other popular mappers in the Unreal community. Many people will recognize the names in this list of chosen maps!

w00t II released. at 09:45 AM EDT by HourencesMapping News

Sabby, Killroy and Derdak2Rot are back with a second helping of high speed CTF fun, with the relase of volume II of the EXTREME w00t series. Intented for the 5 vs 5 server of the same name, the team raise the w00t benchmark even higher than the previous pack, with even more style, many new explorations of ballistics and the bots are badder than ever.

The mappack includes 12 CTF levels in w00t style (lot of jumppads all over the place) for the original Unreal Tournament.

More info can be found on extremew00t.com

New Texturepack. at 03:39 PM EDT by HourencesMapping News

I've managed to release another free texture pack for the Unreal community. HourKraden contains 69 high resolution textures with an industrial and especially yellow theme.



The textures are available as UTX for both UT1 as UT2004. Correct compression levels, detail textures and so on have been set up.

The textures are free for non commercial use as long as you credit me. More details in the readme.

UT1 version
UT2004 version

Derdak2rot has released a modified version of his low poly pack level DM Hodean to demonstrate these textures:

The Hows and Whys of Level Design - Released! at 03:03 PM EST by HourencesMapping News

My book The Hows and Whys of Level Design has gone on sale!

My newspost can be found on phalanx.planetunreal.gamespy.com

Ordering can be done at www.lulu.com/hourences

More info can be found on my site book.hourences.com

Lulu.com accepts creditcard payments of all major types as well as Paypal. They ship worldwide.

The book is available in two editions: a printed edition at 39.96USD/32.17EUR (pictured below) and a digital PDF edition at 18.50USD/14.89EUR.

About the book:

The book covers both the visual and artistic side as well as the gameplay aspect of level design. Don’t expect any technical how-to tutorials in this book, this book is about the "why". Rather than writing yet another tutorial/book about how to create a virtual room this book is about how to make that room look cool and play well. Expect tips and techniques as well as explanations of the logic and reasoning behind art and design decisions. How does the gameplay in a level work? What’s the reason this kind of architecture gives this kind of feeling or looks better in situation A or B? Why does this color combination work so well? What kind of floorplan can I best use to improve gameplay and why? What type of sound setup should I use?

The book is well illustrated and offers many examples with pictures, nearly 120 to be exact. The book is intended to be universal. Most of the information can be applied to a wide range of games and different genres, gametypes, themes etc. I tried to cover and support as many different types as possible but as I personally have most experience in 3D action games and FPS shooters one can expect most of the focus to be on those; especially regarding Gameplay.

The Floorplan Challenge at 12:32 PM EST by HourencesContest News

To put some new life in both the community and Nalicity we have decided to organize a contest: The Floorplan Challenge.

The contest will run for the entire month of December and requires people to pick a letter/number/character of your keyboard and build a level around a floorplan shaped as that character.

Retail examples of such levels are CTF Joust in UT2004 (shapes as an I) and DM Trainingday in UT2004 (shaped like an 8)

The levels can have great gameplay and great visuals, or terrible gameplay but great visuals or the other way around. Great gameplay but very basics looks. Anything you want as long as it does SOMETHING well. The most original use of a character will also be important.

Think outside the box: the level can have a large number of floors, it can have floorplans or cool gimmicks everywhere, it can be a large ONS terrain level, it can have strange warpzones, it can be underwater, in space and so on.


Rules:

-Contest starts right now and ends on January 1, 2007
-You can enter your level by simply submitting the level here at Nalicity and adding the prefix TFC in the name (Example: DM-TFC-MyLittlePony)
-The level needs to use an approved character and only one single character. The character must be clearly visible in either the top down viewport or in a front/side viewport.
-Approved characters are (in this font only!): QWERTYUIOPLKJHGFDSAZXCVBNM qwertyuioplkjhgfdsazxcvbnm 1234567890 ~!@#$%^&*()_+=-[]}{';:"/.,<>?|
-Level can be any size
-Level can have extra walls, platforms and other things within the main shape (For example a large letter U with inside plenty of extra platforms or multiple floors)
-Level must either a Unreal Tournament 1 level or a Unreal Tournament 2004 level. The contest is for both games.
-Level must be made for a retail gametype: DM, TDM, CTF, DOM, DDOM, ONS, AS and so on. The exception to this rule are BT and JB levels. Bunnytrack and Jailbreak levels are also allowed.
-Extra custom content is allowed provided it is included in the zip.
-Authors can an unlimited number of levels.
-The judges are the staff and reviewers of Nalicity
-The winning levels will be reviewed

Winner:

-There will be several winners: The Best Overall Level (good visuals, good gameplay, original), The Best Gameplay winner (great gameplay, visuals are irrelevant), The Best Visuals winner (great looks, irrelevant or non existent graphics) and finally The Most Original Level (most original concept/use of character/implementation).
-There are no real prizes other than fun and honor.
-There winners will receive the MapOfTheMonth and Hotlist of January.
