More Small Map Releases 24 December 2004 Hellscrag
Small map releases are appearing over the place at the moment! Raven popped up on our forums with Heart of Chizra, a small map made a few months ago and now outfitted with an intro and extro, and Sanastro released Tarydium Arena, a "set piece" combat map featuring lots of Skaarj and a Stinger. Meanwhile, in case you missed it on the forums last month, evil_blue_dude released his first serious attempt at an SP map, Karjalgaa're Passage (click here to download or here to comment). Season's greetings from all the UnrealSP.Org crew!
Small Map Release 20 December 2004 Hellscrag
Kaka of upcoming projects The Chosen One and Skaarj Evasion has released a small single player map as a Christmas present to the Unreal SP community. The short map, entitled Passage of Vandora (not to be confused with the similarly titled map in 7 Bullets), can be downloaded in RAR format here; there's also a forum thread for feedback.
New Upcoming Map 16 December 2004 Hellscrag
TheEmperorStalwartUK has begun a less ambitious project to replace Return to Mars.

More information is available via the link on the Upcoming Maps page, along with a few (currently unlit) screenshots.
Upcoming Maps Update 14 December 2004 Hellscrag
It's not great news, unfortunately. As well as the recent cancellation of Operation I_I, Fashahhh's promising city-themed map pack Amnesiac has gone on hold, potentially for a few months. Hopefully there will be life in this project yet! Meanwhile, in better news, UnrealSPVault.Org is now back online (at least for most of us, depending on DNS updates), and the service it provides should only improve from here on out.
Vault Downtime 12 December 2004 Hellscrag
