Woah, we're halfway there!
That's right, there's just under 3 weeks until the end of the collaboration period ending on January 1st, after which I will expect to recieve all submissions sent either via private messaging here on the forums or on Discord!

I'm really looking forward to seeing what approach people have taken to their segements, and you can see a selection of WIP screenshots that have already been shared in the Discord channel below:

Also a big thank-you to Krull0r for donating some custom footstep sounds to be included in the final package to allow for a dynamic footstepping experience a la ONP!

If you still want to join in, it's not too late (I only made a start on my segment yesterday(!)) just make sure you're finished by January 1st :D

I get quite strong Quake 2 vibes from the shots :) Drill machine is really cool with the use of mesh :)

Hey all,

because of the untimely timing of this event (aka: the busiest time of the year) I have granted an additional 3 weeks for everyone to complete their segments by.

So to be clear - the new closing date of the event is 22nd January - I'll expect to have all entries sent to me by then! :D

As I said in my previous post, this is looking to be a great collection of maps and I am overwhelmed by the positive response this collaboration has received which shows SP modding isn't dead yet!

Let's make an awesome start to 2021!

Awesome project and promising progress! I really hope you make it Co-op ready (no spawn issues, etc). I'd love to try these with my Co-op buddies.

Please make sure the maps have proper lighting. Unreal still looks beautiful with proper lighting, but if lighting is poorly implemented, it can make great mapping go to waste, because the game just doesn't feel right then.

What about the foes? You intend to keep them stock Unreal? I hope you keep the AI at normal Unreal level and consistent through out the map-pack.


Can't wait to see the result.

Yes, I think, making it "coop-ready" is crucial.
I personally make it coop-ready - I encurage eveybody to make it also.

I can confirm that all submissions will be tested for optimum co-op capability and from what I've seen of people's shots so far lighting looks to be done very tastefully and should whet your apetite for atmosphere nicely!

As for gameplay, I think there will be a diverse mix of puzzle, exploration and combat based maps and I will do my best as the Curator to sort them into some semblance of a satisfying/balanced gameplay progression ;)

Hi all,

Thank you so much for your contributions to the project! We're at our now extended deadline for submissions, with a whopping ten entries making it in. At this point, collaboration is key. Please join us on the Discord channel to discuss next steps. I think we could all contribute gameplay features, writing, and other tweaks to the story we've cobbled together. If you feel like your map was lacking in any aspects, feel free to ask the other members for help and we can pass the appropriate files along.

SteadZ and I are working on the opening and closing maps to tie this whole thing together, so there's a bit of time to make these improvements to the present maps. The Discord is also helpful for brainstorming, I would love to have a couple of voice sessions with as many of you as possible so this can both see an expedient release while also being the best it can be.
Current Project: Putting some finishing touches on WTFs2. Done soon :)
