The two (ASS) maps have received quite a few responses on various forums. Almost all liking the reviews especially the guy who submitted them in the first place, (A.S.S)Agoura_Steve. He seems to have got a lot of grief from fellow clan members for doing this but only out of a love for UT and his clan. I think he has a really sound attitude to the whole thing. It is just a game and having a sense of humour is vital for anything involving the net.
When a map is submitted it gets reviewed as a standard map. This is stated, very clearly, in the Map Submission page. If the map requires a mod to run correctly then it won’t play well when run normally. Therefore it will probably receive a bad review. There are no categories for mods or TCs yet. Very little interest in reviewing maps for anything other than the vanilla UTs have been expressed to me. Traditionally, clan maps don’t do well on review sites due to the insular nature of clan servers. Maps created for these environments tend to be very specialised. It’s like reviewing a Ferrari’s off-road capabilities and wondering why it scores much lower than a Landrover.
If only everyone had a passion for UT like (A.S.S)Agoura_Steve has then maybe the servers would be fuller rather than full forums full of whining about how UT is on its way out.
All the best
