Test Reviews Soon

25th September, 2008

I want to start posting reviews soon.  Maybe at this site first so I can play about with some formats and scoring systems.  I was trying to work out how to ad-hoc reviews into wordpress without knowing any coding, difficult I know.:D

Plus I need to finsh Quatro which is coming on nicely by the way.  Nearly up to the point where I can concentrate on lighting.  I’ll post more screens then.

Not much more to say today so till then.


New Blog Site Soon

12th September, 2008

(originally posted at my old blog)

As I stated yesterday I’ll be moving this blog to WordPress. I’ve spent all evening configuring the look and widgets. Also I’ve finally managed to add Digg to it. It didn’t work properly here. I’ve searched but any help I’ve found didn’t work for me. This was one of the other reasons I wanted to change. Anyway, soon I’ll switch over, most likely this weekend if all goes well.

Not done anything to the map due to the above but the weekend looms so I’ll have a bit more time to spend on that.

Hourence has posted the results of his level designer’s survey. It makes for very interesting reading.

Sorry for the short post. The new blog will make up for it.

Till tomorrow.
btw you can leave comments, I won’t bite 😉

Remember the Mapping Competitions?

10th September, 2008

I remember one where the map had to be kept inside a 1024 cubed box. There was another where only a certain number of textures were used. I’ve been thinking of running some competitions. The prize wouldn’t be much. Pimpage all around the community which is still fairly wide by the way. I’ve checked my referrals. Several news sites have passed the news that I’m trying to restart UTU. My point is, the community is still alive and in several different languages :D.

I’m finding that Blogger, though good, is a bit limited. Soon I’ll be moving to WordPress. It can handle separate pages and is Digg friendly. Blogger is a bit tricky when it comes to stuff like that. This will make it feel more like a site rather than a blog. I’m hoping that I will be able to start posting reviews. The WordPress dashboard is not the clearest in the world but beatable :D. It’s more versatile generally. Untill everything is ready though I’ll stick here. Plans for a main UTU site are still very much on.

Progress on the map is still happening. Nothing worth taking screenshots of yet. I’ll probably wait until I’ve started the lighting.

I’ve found some new Custom models for UT3. Warhammer 40K + Warfare, oh yeah. Now if only someone would mod the vehicles to match. 😀
