    Awesome! I love those faithful conversions!

    My only concerns, judging from the screenshots, is the overall lighting:
    pic1 : there is not enough contrast for the colors. A big part is washed with yellow.
    You could use the violet colors to colorize some elements, and making the lower ground like it's apart the second floor.
    pic2 : You could soften the projector's lighting, and add various natural lightsources bumping all around, according to the ice/snow/capacity of the engine.
    pic3 : same 2cents
    pic4 : Again, I don't remember is it is true to the original map. But I'd like to see more colors all around. And maybe some shadows, so the lights won't be so "washy".

    Now that your map is pretty like a UT2004' one, you could push it to be like UT3.
    Better shadowing, more color contrasts, maybe some post-proc (but no blur or **** like this) and it will be greater.

    @Foufoune_Rose

    Your right about the lack of contrast in the cave area so I have expanded the door lights and alterd the post processing to give grater contrast ill post when ready.

    Nice work on the remake.

    So I had a look and here are some observations:
    (please pardon the spelling error).

    -Although this is a remake the outside areas are too much like long corridors with little z axis or obstacles which makes for boring game play. (doesn't mean you cant improve on a classic)


    The material on the rocks out side look too last gen imho. I wonder if some of the stock icy rock textures would work better.


    Collision issue, some bv can fix.


    Personal observation: the blue mottled metal wall material needs more molecularity, it feels too mat atm.


    Light influence problems.


    One of the faces has the wrong material applied.


    - Some player starts are too far form a weapon.

    Good work all up. I really like the snow effect, could use more of them imo, but depends how close to the original your aiming.

    Keep it up. Looking forward to your next release.

    Just a quick update

    I have created more contrast in the environment through lighting and post processing

    Fixed the collision issue
    Fixed the uv and particle issue
    Fixed the misappropriated texture issue
    Replaced point lights with spot lights on inner doors to improve realism

    Added some meshes to the slope to guide the player away from a impossible clime / jump

    See pics below


    will post when ready for beta 2

    Like the lighting but not the barrels because they will affect gameplay and change it from the original.

    Otherwise, the first beta plays and looks nice, and is very true to the original.

    Thanks for the blast from the past

    Great work fixing those UV's and collision issues. I liked the addition of debris near the snow incline, adds and extra method get up the ramp.

    Some observations:

    Its snowing only on two sides?

    I'm enjoying the extra work on lighting and post process. However I think its just a bit too over exposed imho. I would increase the sky light to 0.15.

    Player starts still need more work imo. I wonder if adding an eighth weapon (the enforcer) might help a bit. I understand if you reservation as it is a remake.

    At least move the one near the sniper a little to the left as I fell off many times without collecting the weapon.

    The animated doors can be too quick. In one situation you can fire your rockets into the base (as your exiting) but have the door close on you, damaging yourself. However on the other axis it can block weapons if your being fired at. Not sure what the right balance is, but just thought I'd mention it.

    Great progress there. Looking forward to your next release.

    Well here is beta 3 it’s been over a year since beta 2, it just got lost when I upgraded to windows 7.

    This will be the last beta, if no major problems are found I will release in about a month.

    See first page for change log & Download.

    Cool Decent remake.

    Good atmosphere, visuals, and more use of materials. This map has been burst out with more snow outside, sniping view and z-axis inside. The bots are really tough with this one. I've got familiar with the lighting and gameplay style, comparing to the original UT2004 one.

    Hey Thalos .. - I've been gone for a while but I'm trying to get caught up on some of what I missed.

    Looks like you had plenty of excellent feedback so far .. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
