New feature 16 June 2002 Hellscrag
Techno sent in a new article for the features section, this time about the art of coop mapping. It's worth a read for anybody making single player maps.
Forums now linked 16 June 2002 Hellscrag
The forums are now available again. Existing users' passwords and avatars have been reset - you should have been contacted by the admins about your passwords. Unfortunately I cannot change the format of the forum, so we'll have to make do with the default colour scheme. But at least we can post again!
Forums status 16 June 2002 Hellscrag
UTO pulled the plug on all their forums and they are now being merged with Bombardiers.Org. I'm a bit pissed that we weren't given any prior notification on this matter. The forums are up, but are so messed up at the moment that I'm not going to link to them until the admins sort my permissions out. I'll keep you posted. Incidentally, Techno sent in a new feature. This will be published soon when I have the time.
Shia'dorle progresses 12 June 2002 Zynthetic
The recent release of Operation Na Pali has influenced Maverick to start work on Shia'dorle again. ONP had such a strong influence that he's decided to use some elements from said release (with permission of course). What features will be included have yet to be disclosed but you can stop by Maverick's Map Design for four new pictures showing some off.

Operation Na Pali review gets top score 7 June 2002 Hellscrag
Hot off the presses, here it is, my long and hopefully comprehensive Operation Na Pali Review. ONP is the first pack to score ten out of ten at this site, and is deservedly so. If you haven't yet downloaded the mod, this should hopefully convince you to do so. The Fileplanet download can be found on the main reviews page.

General stuff 6 June 2002 Hellscrag
Well, I've been playing ONP and have been very impressed so far. I actually restarted it at one point because I thought I was covering it all too quickly. Given how drool-inducing the last bit that I played was, I am looking forward to playing the rest, but alas I must go to bed now, for I have an exam tomorrow!
Incidentally, Techno sent in some map tips for Xidia. These will be posted when I can find the time between sitting my last two exams and, of course, playing ONP.
