    Default Would you like an UT-emulating gametype for UT2004? (Poll & Sugg. for Epic included)

    Edit:
    PS: This poll is not about changing all of UT2004, that's not
    going to happen anyway (even though it might be better for the
    game), it's about adding an optional gametype that people can
    play when they want (redundant, yes, but neccessary). Get it now?



    Since a lot of people weren't too pleased with how UT2003 turned
    out, but some loved it the way it was, I think it's time for my
    official request for a "real" UT-like gametype for UT2004.

    The goal would be to get some of the huge crowd of UT-players
    playing UT2004, as well as shutting up all "UT99 whiners" once
    and for all. Now how can you resist that?


    The basic flaws people have mentioned with UT2003 were:

    1) too slow ("slow motion") run and fall-speed (adjusted for long dodges)
    2) too big maps in relation to character scale (adjusted for long dodges)
    3) too complex movement system for newbies
    4) too weak weapons (also making it harder for newbies)
    and finally:
    5) too fancy/over-detailed graphics in relation to gameplay.


    After discussing this subject on INA the last 9-10 months (!), my
    simple suggestions to solve these "problems" in an UT-like
    gametype are these:

    1-3) Remove dodgejumping. But then you also need maps:
    Just to get the show started; make 2-3 simple maps with the old
    hallway-design of Q3 and UT, adjusted for simple dodging.
    Increase gamespeed slightly (10%).

    4) Increase the strengths of some weapons (shock combo,
    sniper frequency, ++) Then, like in good UT/Q3-maps; Place
    weapons to get weapon balance
    ; ie stronger weapons on
    exposed locations like you've done with the redeemer.

    5) Less "screaming"/fancy graphics? Solve that by simply not
    using too much time on designing these few maps. Try going for
    the "duller" palette (ref CS, BF1942, UT etc).


    My main point is: For an UT99 mod/gametype, you need the
    faster movespeed and some weapons to be extra powerful to
    get that UT/Q3 arcade-like fragfest feel, but most of all you
    need new, smaller maps for shorter dodging.


    I personally know I would love and praise Epic for eternity if they did this and did it properly.

    Epic will NOT make a come back to old UT style. As they said, UT2004 is UT2003 with more cool stuff. I never played UT99, but I sure like most of the stuff of UT2003 and I'm pretty sure if Epic change the game for Hardcore UT99 player, they will not be any happier.

    Default Actually, I need....

    ...a new game to have something new. I really don't want to play UT forever just because some people don't like UT2k3. I enjoy it, and would like even more novel changes to be put into UT2k4. As I've said before, the games are meant to be different. If Epic was trying to make UT with better graphics, they would have done so already. Clearly, they're trying to make something a bit more creative with their engine.

    Read the poll m8!

    It's not about changing UT2004 to be like UT99, it's about
    adding an extra gametype so that those who want the old UT99
    gameplay can play that every now and then with upgraded
    graphics and new player models.

    Well, UT2003 was different, but it failed miserably. There are still
    (one year after release) only half as many playing UT2003 as there
    are playing UT99. So it seems not everyone agrees with you that
    forcing novelty on all fields - including gameplay - is a good thing.


    But back to the point: This was meant as an optional (on the side)
    mod that the people who liked UT99 can choose to play when they want.

    (Thus stopping the UT99 vs UT200x debate once and for all)

    It would also be a new thing in the UT200x series..

    All of your suggestions require new maps (as well as a different approach to mapping). And I don't think the whole UT1 crowd will switch to UT2k4 even if this mod was in, that's just not going to happen. in fact, I strongly doubt even half will make the switch. I mean, they're playing UT1. Why would they want to play "the other UT1"? What has it got to offer UT1 doesn't? (apart from being very well CD-key protected, having slightly better graphics that you actually wanted toned down... and a complete lack of maps)
    What I'm going to say has been said before. It's a really lame remark, and you probably won't like to hear it again. However, it is very true. If you want UT1... it's already there: go play it!
    I think the extra copies this mod would sell would certainly not be worth the time spent making it.

    The production of such a mutator assumes that everyone who plays UT will migrate over to UT2004 without question, which ain’t never gonna happen.

    All it would achieve is spread the existing UT-only fanbase across two games, giving lower player numbers for UT and a tiny minority playing UT2004 + Mutator.

    If you want UT, play UT. Please.
    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

    That half is the amount of people playing UT2003 now!

    I mean, they're playing UT1. Why would they want to play "the other UT1"? What has it got to offer UT1 doesn't?
    Better graphics, TTM, new maps, new models?

    Yes it is indeed a lame (and pointless) remark, so why make it??
    UT2003 split up the original UT players in two parts: 1/3 went to
    UT2003 and 2/3 stayed with UT.
    How beneficial do you think that is for an online game?

    I think the extra copies this mod would sell would certainly not be worth the time spent making it.
    Then let the UT2003 vs UT flamewars continue and UT2004 die.

    Wow what a genius you are!
    With toned down graphics I didn't mean 1999 level of graphics,
    there might be something in between 1999-2003 maybe?

    Also, UT2003's brand of "really cool graphics" is all about just
    adding more and more polygons, however the polygons just
    have separate textures which don't make the whole look credible/good.

    So yes, we could definitely loose some of that.

    no offence m8, but the poll results speak for themselves.

    it doesnt take a genius to see what that means.

    take your UT1 gameplay 'issues' and go back to the UT1 forums on these boards and go play UT1, and leave UT200X to the ppl who actually enjoy it for what it is and accepted the changes Epic made

    Actually, this wasn't about "UT2003 vs UT99" at all. It was about
    meeting the massive amount of dissatisfied customers'
    complaints about getting a better gameplay, by making a simple
    UT99 mod for UT2004, done.
    No more discussion.


    But I see now there are so many of you INA mafia guys out there
    who not only want UT2003 to have the gameplay you want, but
    also want to decide that the biggest part of the UT2003
    community shouldn't have access to the game they want at the same time.

    you need to re read the post it is not a stand alone mod it is a gametype included in ut2004 ..you don,t have to play it but it would be there to play if you so desired it is a good idea and mabye some peeps would like it ,it would be no different than having invasion (gametype)......

    I really don't care about the poll, that was just to draw some
    flamers in here to get bumpage on this thread.

    And again no offense m8, but the only people who have posted
    (and probably voted) in this thread so far are people who have
    no idea about what a "gametype" is in Unreal (there are
    obviously also very many other things they are ignorant about).

    Seems the only thing they do know, is they usually vote "no" to anything UT99.


    take your UT1 gameplay 'issues' and go back to the UT1 forums on these boards and go play UT1, and leave UT200X to the ppl who actually enjoy it
    *sigh*
    Listen..
    I've been playing and enjoying UT2003 since it came out, I've
    been promoting it to everyone and trying to get people to play it
    from day #1.
    Countering people's whines and complaints all the time, I know
    exactly what people dislike about it.
    I even made a small mutator that tried out some gameplay changes, just to make UT2003 come alive and to get over this bad
    split which is bad for both the UT200x games and UT99.

    I am actually one of the dedicated people who are running a
    couple of UT2003 servers, and leading an UT2003 clan.

    If UT2004 is another disappointment down the same line as
    UT2003, it's over for me. I will return to UT, and I won't give a sh't
    about UT2003. I will shut down the servers, and many will do the
    same as me.

    Face it, without enthusiasts, "your" precious UT200x will be dead.

    guys it is just a poll come on lets be civil there are plenty of maps that would work either ported over maps or the smaller narrower maps that shipped with the game .It would not take long to find maps to play or dl it would not take much to implement this gametype just a option to remove new moves and aderinaline it could all be options geeze lighten up people lets try to work together,,,,,for the common good of the game .

    That was not a flame.

    When you're off your crack high, try reading the last part of the
    post, how much effort I've put into trying to make UT2003
    succeed. Without people like me, no online UT2003 play for you.

    Yep. Who's going to make them? If Epic is to make them, you'll end up with a totally new game. In that case, your argument about "It's optional and won't replace UT2k3" is bollox, because it WOULD take Epic a lot of time, and they would have made a complete extra game. (which you apparently expect to come free with another developed and expensive game, UT2k4)
    Originally posted by danseko

    Yes... online. And certainly NOT half of the people that BOUGHT UT2k3 and will buy UT2k4. Besides, many of the people playing UT1 never bought it. I've seen clans where almost every member admitted they had a pirated copy. I doubt all those people will happily go to a store and pay for a game they already have.
    Originally posted by danseko

    Again, if you want new maps, you'd have to make new maps first. If it's made to be optional, there won't be any maps for it. (or at least not many)
    Seeing as how maps are the #1 thing that makes a game, and UT1 has loads and loads of good maps (many of which are user-made and took a lot of time before they were released) already, I doubt people would flock to UT2k4/UT1-mode if there's actually LESS maps in there.
    Also, you said you wanted simpler graphics... so no better graphics there.

    It's lame, so why make it? I think I made that clear. BECAUSE IT'S TRUE. It's just silly to say "This game is good, this game is bad. Let's make the bad game EXACTLY like the good game!". There just isn't a point in that. People will stick with what they have (mostly because they don't have to pay money for that! I doubt people will pay money for playing the game they already own)
    And it's CERTAINLY not a pointless remark. Apparently you still haven't got it crammed into your skull, so it's not pointless until you have.

    ...not very. That's why I think splitting it AGAIN won't do any good. Think of what will happen if this brilliant idea of yours is implemented: half of the UT1 players will go to UT2k4UT1mode, half of them stay behind. Most UT2k3 players and a couple of new players will go to original UT2k4. Now you have people split out over THREE communities instead of 2. Happy now?

    Right. What exactly is the point you're trying to make? I was saying "This won't sell many extra copies", and your reply is "Then UT2k4 will die". That doesn't make sense. So you're saying UT2k4 will die in either case? Um... actually, I think UT2k4 will live without your suggestions.

    The only thing that's mindblowing here, is that Epic managed to
    make a sequel (UT2003) that failed to bring over the past fans!

    (And in answer to your expected reply: Yes, sure, I guess UT fans
    are different from all the other online game fans out there.. )

    All it would achieve is spread the existing UT-only fanbase across two games, giving lower player numbers for UT and a tiny minority playing UT2004 + Mutator.
    That's what happened when UT2003 was released!
    And FYI, UT2003 is stuck with the small and useless part of that split/spread.

    Also...

    1. There is a TTM for UT1.
    2. Making another game along with UT2k4 will mean there will not be just UT vs UT2k3 flamewars, but also UT2k4UT1mode vs UT flamewars AND UT2k4UT1mode vs UT2k4 flamewars... on top of the UT2k3 vs UT2k4 flamewars we certainly will get!

    It's so predictable, it's almost funny!

    really don't care about the poll, that was just to draw some
    flamers in here to get bumpage on this thread.
    ahhh so you've resorted to trolling then?

    And again no offense m8, but the only people who have posted
    (and probably voted) in this thread so far are people who have
    no idea about what a "gametype" is in Unreal (there are
    obviously also very many other things they are ignorant about).
    easy answer for some1 losing an uphill struggle.

    e been playing and enjoying UT2003 since it came out, I've
    been promoting it to everyone and trying to get people to play it
    from day #1.
    Countering people's whines and complaints all the time, I know
    exactly what people dislike about it.
    I even made a small mutator that tried out some gameplay changes, just to make UT2003 come alive and to get over this bad
    split which is bad for both the UT200x games and UT99.

    I am actually one of the dedicated people who are running a
    couple of UT2003 servers, and leading an UT2003 clan.
    ahhh so all this makes your 'opinions' more valid..... i see.

    Guyver1:
    started playing online August 1999
    first game - Unreal1
    became a member of the wireplay Unreal1 community.

    moved over to UT1 in december 1999, formed [DOA] in January 2000 with an old Unreal1 buddie. played in ALL the major leagues/cups that were around at the time (wireplay, barrysworld, Games Inferno, Clanbase, Jolt etc etc) we were div2 quality as we didnt have the time/money or rescources back then to rent our own server and so couldnt put in the hours to practice.

    I became a Games Inferno Admin during the sur-5-vor league and for the CTF league, also did some admin for the original wireplay UT1 leagues.

    Moved to UT2003 as soon as the demo was released, all of [DOA] felt it was a breath of fresh air in a stagnant environment. we havent touched UT1 since.

    I am now clan leader of [DOA] for over 3 yrs, and am now the UT2003/2004 Community Liaison for Wireplay running 9 servers, 5 forums and the website and ftp section.

    Currently in div1 for all 3 clanbase opencups.

    so i suppose your gonna tell me now that i have no clue about what makes 'unreal' gameplay??

    theres not many ppl who can match the length of time i have spent in the unreal series of games, and the ones who have been around that long probably are open minded enough that they;ve migrated thru all 3 games and accepted that all 3 games are very different.

    your 'experience' means jack m8, it is not some kind of leverage tool you can use to somehow justify your 'opinion'.

    Stay calm.
    If UT2004 "does a UT2003" - meaning, it completely misses it
    target audience (flops), there won't be any discussion here at all.

    This is not a threat or anything, but for me and many other Unreal
    enthusiasts, we'll leave the UT200x alone with it's microscopic
    player base and most probably move on to with DoomIII or Halflife 2.

    Both of these are rock solid games with massive player bases,
    and graphics about 3 years ahead of UT200x. That's the truth, and you all know it.


    I'm not here argumenting for gameplay options because I like to
    get pointless flame flung in my face from ignorant fourteen year-
    olds, it's because if Epic don't make UT2004 good, it's dead.

    You don't think I posted that on purpose?
    Here's what I wrote yesterday replying to a post that said this
    forum was all about arguing:


    Well, that is true indeed! But note that 99% of all flamewars in
    this forum go like this:

    1) a post: "UT2003 should be changed/modified" or
    "I don't like UT2003 because.." (implying that UT2003/4 should be changed)
    2) about twenty seconds later, the INA mafia have written 10
    flaming replies
    3) the flaming replies compliment each other with stuff like
    "well said", "best post ever" or "owned"
    4) people who agree with the first poster show up with angry
    posts of support and argumentation
    5) the INA mafia go back to point 2)
    Now check this thread. Pretty precise or what?

    Any kind of handreach from Epic towards the ~300,000 monthly
    unique UT players who tried and disliked UT2003 (I've not yet met
    one UT player who didn't try UT2003), would be a good thing.

    When they keep ignoring this need, well, it's Epic's loss.

    actully guys this is getting out of hand ,i am going to sell popcorn and extra seats in my office so all the bros from the res can come and watch Forum wars lol i might even make a movie ......people you really need to chill a bit have some fun and just try to make this game not only good for yourselves but good for anyone who would play it another gametype option that does not in any way change the gameplay you like would hurt nothing!!!!!!! it would not even effect you.....

    the flaming in here is all in fun (on my part as i have not one thing against anyone here no matter what they call me or make fun of me ...it is all good but like i said in another post we are like cancer eating ourselves up from the inside out ....is it too much to ask that we all love Ut in all its forms and we try to help each other instead of acting like i or danseko have the plauge??????

    i know now how Custer Felt as he rode over the hill.....
    I was born upon the prairie, where the wind blew free, and there was nothing to
    break the light of the sun.

    Do you ever read a post directed at you?

    I made fun of your speling because you posted a stupid
    and ignorant post right before: "I stoped reading your post after
    one line, huh-huh".


    (I don't give a sh't if people misspell words. I do it myself)

    Very! Also, very reversible, and very appliable (spelling?) to you and the rest of the world! Hey, 99% of all discussions go like this, like it or not. If you want a sensible discussion, perhaps a seperate room would be a better option. And that's no sure way either, since most people (including me, quite often ) are rather thick-headed and won't give in even if they have nothing to lose if they do.

    Anyway I'm still waiting for a sensible reply to my last serious post.

    I won't bother reading the entire thread, but I miss an option in the poll -- "No UT1 mod in UT2004 and we don't need more UT vs. UT2003 threads".

    Another concept you've misunderstood.
    Trolling is when you go into a thread/forum where you've got
    nothing constructive to add, and post negative remarks just to stir
    someone up.

    The difference is that I posted something in an attempt to create
    something that could be good, while you just posted because you
    don't even want to try.

    You can find the real troll at a mirror near you.

    easy answer for some1 losing an uphill struggle.
    Oh! I'm going to remember that one for UT2004's floppage.
    Why btw is it so important for you to work against something that
    really won't do you any harm?

    [bla bla]
    so i suppose your gonna tell me now that i have no clue about what makes 'unreal' gameplay??
    Well, obviously the twice as big community who left UT2003
    returning to UT would say "hell yes", but the only point I was
    trying to make was that I am an UT2003 fan.

    I am not trying to hurt the game, or whine at it, I want more
    players playing it.

    theres not many ppl who can match the length of time i have spent in the unreal series of games, and the ones who have been around that long probably are open minded enough that they;ve migrated thru all 3 games and accepted that all 3 games are very different.
    True: There are not many people who agree with you. I know that
    first hand having spent months tried to convince heaps of UT fans
    to give UT2003 another chance (as you've hopefully done too).
