Upcoming projects inbreeding 21 July 2005 Hellscrag
In a rather incestuous manner, various projects have been recruiting members from other teams in the last few weeks. You may already have noticed that Team UnrealSP has been joined by Kaka of Dead Cow Studios and Flunders of Shock Systems. Team Red Nemesis have been joined by SeeD and SarevoK to work on Residual Decay and, most inbred of all, SarevoK's project Broken Alliance has been joined by UArchitect (as previously reported), SeeD and also LJ Paranoid (phew, a fresh contribution to the gene pool). Well done, everyone!
Links & Files Updated 20 July 2005 Hellscrag
It's not quite the transformation that some of you had hoped for, but our much-neglected Links and Files page has finally been updated. I have generally rationalised what is on offer and either fixed or removed any broken links. There are no longer any links to Fileplanet, and the amazing unofficial Unreal / UT enhancements undertaken by the community are now given greater prominence.
Project news from TheEmperorStalwartUK 13 July 2005 Hellscrag
According to TheEmperorStalwartUK in his latest forum post, Labyrinth of the Darkness has been cancelled, but Lands of the Sunspire remains a viable project.

New interactive Upcoming Maps page 13 July 2005 Hellscrag
I'm sure we're all aware how ungainly the Upcoming Maps page has been becoming, due to the sheer number of projects currently in development (which is if course a good thing). Well, following requests from the UT-unfriendly sector of the SP community, I have now launched a new interactive Upcoming Maps page on which it is possible to filter the projects by game platform. Enjoy!
SarevoK announces Broken Alliance 11 July 2005 Hellscrag
SarevoK has started a new UT SP project entitled "Broken Alliance". According to SarevoK, it will feature around 5-6 maps, a couple of new guns and some new textures, and he may be joined on the project by a couple of other mappers. There are no links relating to the project yet, but a larger version of one of the pics is shown on Upcoming Maps.
No more Legend of Vandora for UT2004 7 July 2005 Hellscrag
Recent postings on the Legend of Vandora forums have indicated that development of the project for UT2004 has halted. NozzeM had the following to say in late May:
There's plans to continue development when unreal engine 3 arrives. This because of the many personal obligations among team members, ut2k4 isn't that popular anymore and by the time we would have finished LoV ut2k4 would be very outdated.
In the absence of any guarantee that this project can be made, I am taking the decision to remove it from Upcoming Maps until such a time as it starts up again for definite. At present things don't look too hopeful.
