The reality though now is that Coop in Unreal (is this U1 or UT?) isn't that lively and this project feels sorta huge to make?

UBerserker wrote:I'm not too keen onto the SP focus, even though I understand running SP mods in Coop is always a fucking annoyance. This is mostly a personal issue because I don't find much satisfaction in playing randomized maps with randomized objectives that have a "non-canon story" aura to it, and when you play this type of stuff alone it gets repetitive rather quick.
UBerserker wrote:Either way the problem here is how is this going to be achieved? From what I'm reading you're suggesting fusing together retail maps in a dynamic way - or just a random map switcher? I mean, some of the Unreal maps are unstable and require extreme attention for geometry stability during rebuild (Vandora and the Sunspire are massively awful offenders in this case). You may want to start with simple things such as Outpost 3J + SkyTown, or Harobed + Dark Arena in reverse. I'm expecting the pawn/item stuff to work alright (assuming here you're a coder) but the problem lies with the map system.

The official thread for TMC will be seeing several updates over the coming weeks following the new developments with xPawns_UWXPR which will replace the outdated xPawns. The story and map list are all planned out at this stage and the main area of development now concerns further updates to xPawns_UWXPR (which I have been working on recently), maps and continuation of a complete redesign of various pawn skins, weapons and possibly models.The chapter list is now present in the main TMC thread. I intend for the prologue chapter (chapter 0) to be tested/released once the pertinent elements are complete.As for the "Infinity Plus" project, should it commence, TMC will still be developed alongside this one of course since they will definitely share significant elements such as the new pawns.

But UB voiced my concerns about possibel/probable cancellations.And I'm sorry to say Dr. Walter, I'm very sceptical about the 3 projects reaching their (currently expected or hoped for) destination.I've always been a firm believer that Unreal still has a few (meaning more than 5) years of life left in it. Unfortunately many promising mappers (and talented by the way) have left the scene and too many projects were announced ... and eventually cancelled. Seriously: one-man projects that take 3 years or more to finish are almost bound to run out of steam, and 3 at the same time ?? (I suspect you catch my drift).Notwithstanding my scepticism, I'm still hopefull and will be one of the if not the most enthousiastic player trying out whatever comes my way (be it SP).

Dr. Walter wrote:...Thank you for the feedback so far everyone. From the opinions, it seems as if it would be better for this potential project to be put on hold in favour of focused developments on TMC. Certainly, within the future if several chapters of TMC are released and stable, enhanced progress on IP may be considered. Would this be the preferred route of development users would like to see?
