Brotherly Mappage 25 February 2005 Hellscrag
It seems that everyone's brother is getting on on the mapping game. If you surf into Upcoming Maps, you'll see that two new projects have been added (one is still pending a screenshot and so appears at the very end of the page). Firstly, SP-Plateau (working title), an UT SP map by kea's brother Diamond. This map is apparently nearing completion. Secondly, Saving Na Pali, a venture by Skaarj Slayer's brother (SH)The_Vortex_Riker, aided by Skaarj Slayer himself. Both have links to project threads or sites with more info and, in the case of SP-Plateau, screenshots.
Upcoming Map Pics 21 February 2005 Hellscrag
A quick visit to the Darkcloud Rising project thread will reveal a couple of new screenshots of GTD-Carthage's new UT SP map pack. Carthage reports that ideas are coming thick and fast - more so than one person can deal with - so if you're a SP mapper looking for a project to work on, check it out. An impressive new pic of The Chosen One was also recently posted on the forum by Kaka.
New Project: Darkcloud Rising 19 February 2005 Hellscrag
Undeterred by abandoning his previous project, GTD-Carthage has returned with Darkcloud Rising. The story is not fully worked out yet, but map one is set in a Skaarj facility. Less ambitious than the previous project Darkcloud, GTD-Carthage hopes to see this one through to completion. More info on Upcoming Maps.

The Chosen One Update 13 February 2005 Hellscrag
Kaka announced a significant update to the Chosen One web site. As well as a new design for the site itself, a number of new screenshots are featured.

Unreal ported to UT2004? 2 February 2005 Hellscrag
Crazy as it sounds, mapper -oMLeTTe- has undertaken the task of converting the whole of the Unreal saga to the Unreal Tournament 2004 engine. He has already acquired a coder for his project and may be looking for more mappers. If you are interested in learning more about this project (several pics of the first couple of maps are available), Unreal: Reloaded now has an entry towards the bottom of the Upcoming Maps page.
