How far is this project from being all done?

Leo says that Episode 1 full is not far from being done, but that there will need to be some more work on episode 2 (the early levels being unfinished and jrath needs more coding etc).
But that for the rest, almost everything from E2 and E3 was recovered and "finished" in the first place so it's just mostly retexturing work which is now way easier.

Sounds good.

FYI for the people who don't know what's the original map shown in the pic above, it was shown in one of the Unreal's earlier teasers. Unknown what it was, and it's not Triton despite having a similar theme (this is the only known Triton screenshot https://i.imgur.com/KiWZvtm.png)

It wasn't the first pic. I've known that one for a really long time. The second one is the interesting one.

Did you make it? (Yrex)
Or did it come with the PSX levels?

I wish we had a skycity level among the PSX content...

It's just a reconstruction of the left screenshot.

Well, we can try to rebuild one.
I ripped a lot of textures from screenshots. I can show you a testmap I build using those.

Temporarily back from a longer absence.

I honestly fear this project may not be what it's cranked up to be. First off, the difficulty is inconsistent. E1L3 is downright brutal and if you pass this, there's nigh chance you won't be facing any tougher confrontations throughout later.

As for the secret levels, Minos and E1L5-mine, if by some fluke you end up in them, you're pretty much screwed unless by some fluke you find your way around. They're too mazelike, with NO clear indications how to progress through them whatsoever, especially the mine level. That one basically takes Cliff's most confusing level, namely Foundry, and adds such a spin to it that at this point I outright gave up.

Don't approach this without a guide. And don't approach this at UT99 so that the Oldskool score table doesn't irk you with negative score values every time you're forced to enable God mode on E1L3.

Of course, the new and retextured locales are - while mostly lowpoly - beautiful. The Implant Gun sections are a nice change of pace. And the regular FPS gameplay is there and is cool aside from the occasional difficulty spikes. Seeing more of the Vortex Rikers was refreshing and pleasant compared to U1's ver. But what of it, if there are sections that will drive a regular player absolutely nuts and take away all the fun of the experience?

If I wanted a point-and-click adventure game level of absurdity, or if I wanted Dark Souls, I'd install just that. Keep that nonsense away from muh Unreal.

Why "Temporarily" ?
