Unreal Tournament: Community Map CTF-Control Overview, Epic CTF Maps Preview

• November 21st, 2014

This week on the Unreal Tournament live stream, the team took at the CTF map, "Control" by community level designer "Jayoplus". The Unreal Tournament team had a chance to playtest the map and they really enjoyed it! The team offered Jay some suggestions and let him know what they enjoyed about the map. You can download the map today and give feedback HERE.

The team also took us through the new CTF maps made by the UT team, like Sidney Rauchberger's new asymmetrical map "Crashsite." The community is really enjoying the map because of its great sniper perches and flag routes. The map will be included in the latest build and Sidney is looking for feedback in THIS thread.  

Nick Donaldson's newest, CTF-Blank, was next up. This symmetrical map has a lot of great escape routes, including a stream through the middle of the map that will carry you to safety quickly. The drawback is you're wide open as you travel gently down the stream. This map will also be available in this week's build. If you'd like to read more about the map and give your feedback, go HERE.

On this week's live stream, Senior Gameplay Programmer Matt Oelfke talked a bit about the work he has done on the bots in Unreal Tournament and how to get them into your level. If you have questions for Matt about bots and AI, head over to the Unreal Tournament Level Design Forums.

Senior Level Designer Sidney Rauchberger took a look at his new maps, CTF-Outside and DM-asdf. (Love those inventive names Sid!) Members of the Unreal Tournament community have been really excited to play CTF-Outside and the map is now available in the latest build. DM-asdf is already a community favorite and Sid showed us some of the changes he's made to the map.

Senior Gameplay programmer Joe Wilcox also stopped by to give us an update on the community made HUDs for the game. We don't have the design nailed down just yet, but we have a great start towards a working HUD for Unreal Tournament. A big thanks to the Unreal Tournament community for all of their hard work on this!
