web site. I agree that the more open approach to new creatures and items helps to raise my enthusiasm. In fact, the site has definitely raised some additional excitement in me for this release - it's a while really since I've played any new Unreal SP releases, with the most recent one that I've played (outside of the 8th Anniversary maps) being Unreal: Forgotten
Bring on The Chosen One
. Those are the two upcoming releases that I still really want to play.
No offence is intended by the above to any of the other great mappers who are still churning out new content - but I barely even play the original Unreal
mission any more, let alone any custom maps. It's just that The Chosen One
are huge and feel like unfinished business for me.
(The same is true of Residual Decay
to an extent, but I get the sense that it's much less likely to come out any time soon.)
P.S. I think I recognise which other USP-hosted site the FireStorm
site was adapted from! It's no surprise, as it always did have the superior code - something I never got round to retrofitting to the main USP site.
