The story in short:
...During Unreal's developement, Epic cut a ton of stuff
from the game and I am ready to bring
some of them back...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
KARPATHIAN KASTEL
Developer: makemeunreal
Platform: Unreal GOLD 227i !!!ONLY!!! No UT compatibility in plans.
Status: Work In Progress
Synopsis: It's a bit hard to define the map's synopsis as it is just one of the alpha levels I plan to recreate. Didn't really think about any real story so far. One thing I am sure about is that these maps will be a lot more colorful than the final's, and will be populated by the already-unearthed-and-coded alpha pawns.
With almost no information about the weapons, items they planned back in 1995, I'm going to make them by myself in a style I feel fitting.
About Unreal's alpha version (1995): https://tcrf.net/Proto:Unreal
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


I had to manually recreate every single texture from the old screenshots as the final game had none of them. They didn't make the cut. You can see some of textures on this shot, as well as the custom alpha-like HUD I made, and the Mana pickups for your first weapon which is the iconic "eyeball stuff" from the leaked tech demo.
The rune on the chair is the pickup mesh of the said weapon.

Expect some relatively good looking new pickups.


Have fun people of Unreal:

Third map is not new, it's the skytown church at its earliest.

What's the point of this topic really. I see no information as to who is developing (surely it's not Leo alone) nor anything about a timeframe, not even a link to the original page or topic/website. IN fact I can't even make out whether there is an intention to release.
Also the layout of this post (and other posts by watcher) is a pain to the eye. It contains layoutcodes which probably work on the webpage it was originally written for but here it cause a lot of indent and useless text (in this post it's actually not that disturbing but in a couple of other posts it really messes up the page).

Don't get me wrong on this. I really appreciate watcher's efforts but some consideration for tired eyes can normally be expected.

I fully agree.

Hi MMU,

this thread format makes no sense like this. It's incredibly TL;DR. May I make some suggestions?

  • Use the [sshot] tag to highlight a select few nice screenshots.
  • Put the rest in an album on http://www.imgur.com and link directly to that album.
  • Enjoy a much cleaner thread!

Otherwise, I doubt anybody is going to read much of this. Your thread is also incredibly bandwidth-taxing on mobile!

I could sum it up eve more by saying that this is a reimagination of what unreal could have been if they release it in 1995.
I've had a few good quality screenshots of this level.
I remade all the textures in Photoshop, rebuilt the level using the screenshots as a base and then made custom pickups to match the theme.

I plan to remake all the alpha maps into one campaign.
This map is the first in the line.
It's about 50% ready. The brushwork is ready, the pickups are ready, the textures are ready. Now comes the gameplay.
Bonus screenie:

A new ammo pickup then a new weapon pickup and the Bugman.
