Thanks Herm! :)

Ok, here is the list of maps I mentioned in an email. I know you can get these at Skillz's map site:

1 DM-C4-Ariza-Beta

2 DM-Flightunleashed Beta 2

3 DM-Nirvana 3

4 DM-Radikus (An old botmatch map from the game of Unreal. It's an oldie, and a goodie!)

I will be sending you a map called DM-Stormwitch. While it may not actually play that well, it's such a nice theme map and so well realized that I think you would like it.
I will also be sending you DM-Abadoned Crypt for your consideration.
And I will try once more to send you DM-Anshar. However it is a very large map, and will probably be bounced back to me. But it's worth trying again. Expect to see up to 3 separate emails, due to size limitations.

Well DM-Anshar did bounce back to me. Too bad, it's a pretty map. However, I also sent you DM-Sae for your consideration, so you still have 3 emails from me. ;)

DM-HMSStormwitch

DM SAE

Yes, I have not put them in yet and I have not restarted the servers yet from the other maps I have put in. Putting in new maps the old fashion way takes time. Especially when I'm installing them to multiple servers. I am starting to wish that I only ran 1 server instead of 5. Just running 1 would be so freeking easy. I have 3 UT99 DM servers each running very different mods from each other. I have 1 UT99 MH server and 1 UT2K4 server running a special mod. It is very hard to keep track of what I can and can not do not to mention what I have or have not already done. Thus, these change logs.

Yes indeed it must be difficult. I was a little surprised originally that you went with 3 more servers, seeing that CG's 1 through 3 had been difficult enough back in the day.

I had a look at DM-Radikus2k4 again, and was alarmed that it was bad. But it turns out that I just had the wrong version of the texture "HourMoria". The missing textures are now all there. It is a bit disappointing still though. The jump boots are gone, and you don't need them because the secret area in the roof is gone. Also gone is the trap door over the lava pit, so the fun of hitting the switch and frying someone is gone too. The fake wall overlooking the court yard is also gone. It is now solid. So no sniping from that hiding spot. Bummer. And I'm not happy with the proportions of the map. It still feels smallish, as if it was designed for 3/4 size bots. It plays ok, and looks ok, but it is a mere shadow of the original and UT99 versions which are very nice indeed.

If I ever find a better remake of this map I will tell you about it.

Roger that. Bummer too. How can you make a remake of a map and then change everything? That is not a remake.

I just played the map DM-UCMP4-Speos on the server. I got a "server refused to send file HourMoria" error message first though. I was suspicious of that file name when I had to change from the 5mb one to the 7mb one in order to be able to see the textures in DM-Radikus2k4. I had vague memories of it causing trouble before. And apparently I was correct. I had to change back to the 5mb size one in order to be able to play on the server.

So what this means is: Not only is DM-Radikus2k4 a rather poor execution of a great old map; it has a different version of HourMoria.utx in it. This is the last straw imho for this map. No way I am going to be constantly swapping files, just to be able to play a mediocre map.

I therefore strongly suggest that DM-Radikus2k4 be removed from the server.

1000 apologies for not checking it out before I recommended it in the first place. :oops:

I can't find these exact maps nameless. I will edit this as the list grows.

1 DM-C4-Ariza-Beta

2 DM-Flightunleashed Beta 2

OK, you asked for a totall of 7 new maps. I can't find 2 of them and you have since told me one of the others is no good due to a file mismatch issue so I am about to install the other 4 you requested which I can confirm I do have either by you sending them to me or me finding them. I still can't find the 2 listed just above this paragraph.

Putting stuff on this server is easy! Everything is done. Find and send me those last two maps OK. Try out the new stuff too and let me know how it goes. Peace out!

Here is a link to Flightunleashed.

http://ut2004.ut-files.com/index.php?di ... tch/MapsF/

Six up from the bottom is what I believe to be the final version of the map. It's the only one that is a full 21Mb.

In the mean time you need to go look at the server. I fear that DM-HMStormwitch has messed up the server somehow. Twice I voted for it, and instead I got the map I had just finished to play over again, and on the replay the bots were acting strangely, and a whole lot of other badness was going on too.
If the badness persists after a restart, perhaps you should just remove HMStormwitch. It's not a DM map anyhow. Just a nice looking theme map.

HMStormwitch is now loaded fully and working fine. It was missing 4 files from the original link I got to install it. Found the map easy and it is all good to go now. Now to add this other one you just linked me to. Thanks!

Wow that was even faster than your victory over me in Deck 16. :lol: Clearly your practicing over at Hook's place has gotten you back in the game. :D

DM-C4-Ariza-Beta is now on its way to you. :)
