    OLD Side Notes
    * i was not able to find a link to an equivalent [final] version of this map- i was only able to find one other version, and it was uncooked,- i did not use it
    - as seen here - http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/...on-from-UT2004
    * i just started this from the beginning myself using ut2004.
    - i will probably release a version with more content, maybe weather effects etc some other time.
    - The PS3 version screenshot and water textures do not work.

    It's indeed awesome, downloading. But maybe you could tweak the leaf material of the UT2004 meshes as they always seemed to have an unrealistic/comic-like green colour. Other than that, the lighting looks great - and gameplay is great anway, it's Albatross!

    P.S.
    It would be nice if you could download Psyche and comment aswel.
    - psyche took me like 10 times longer to make.


    -also ill give a shout out to Steve for his "DM-Amissa Night Edition" map built similar to albatross; if people like this sorta stuff they should try it.

    Great work. I played it because i liked the 2004 version. At the end there is a Bug list with screenshots (damn no spoiler).

    ---------------------------

    Do you know Stevelois version of Albatross? I really like it and and fits more the UT3-ish theme.
    DM-Amissa

    DM-Amissa Night Edition
    http://stevelois.wordpress.com/ut-ga.../dm-amissa-ne/

    ---------------------------
    Your version plays better than the one you mentioned. The other one does not work (at least if you just download and try to play it). Your version has some things i don't like. Here a short list of the issues:
    - Map name differs (Albatros and Albatross; original one is DM-1on1-Albatross)
    - Player amount differs (INI and thread)
    - The preview image looks better without the yellow UED border
    - ...

    The visual look is quite okay. So i just commented gameplay bugs. Now some commented screenshots.
    The screenshots don't represent the quality of the visual look of the map as they were shot using a low graphic profile and a unlit viewmode.
    (the screenshots were sorted but the naming scheme of imageshack mixed the files. So nevermind.)


    you die if you feigh here and you drop through the bridge. Apparently not always, but occaisonally.


    you get stuck here. It's near the jumpboots


    Strange collision on steps

    strange collision here again


    same collision bug on the steps


    rock has no collision

    rock has no collision there

    Hello TKBS,

    I am very happy to see one of the main levels I played for UT2K4 has made it to UT3, thank you for making this. I love how you were able to create the same atmosphere the map had in UT2K4, it is very faithful to the original. I was able to have a lot of fun on the map just like I had when playing it within UT2K4. However, sadly I bumped into a few major issues that really interrupt gameplay for me. Main one being when trying to walk onto the lift in the middle of the map it would stop me unless I used the right most side of it (This glitch got me killed a few times!) After running into that issue I decided to give the map my usual test and was able to find numerous other issues with it. I sent you a long detailed private message with feedback and screenshots showing the problems I discovered. I would really love to see an improved / updated v1.1 release of this map since it was one I use to play a lot. This map has a lot of potential and is near a perfect remake of the original map, it just needs a few fixes & tweaks to make it more polished and superb. Please check the private messages I sent you and consider releasing a v1.1 I would really love to have it!



    @RattleSN4K3: Yes I have also found quite a few issues with the map. I have sent a private message to the author with my screenshots showing the issues I was able to find. I hope this map receives an update!

    Edit: DM-1on1-Albatross name would be nice when updating to v1.1

    - Please elaborate.!!where is that position

    - I really appreciate the item and effort you spent testing [even if it is for selfish gain ]
    - but that 1 image is extremely difficult for me to fix - because i have no idea where it is [all others i have found]
    // also how are you even playing my maps when your ut3 does not work?

    @ Brandon
    ill deal with your requests as pm- to avoid a huge thread

    - most of the issues are left over from the port - if you guys want another version you will have to break the rules because i originally wanted this ful of udk content- - which i might add is "free for commercial use"- but apparently i cannot use it for a game i f_king payed for.
    - hence why this map is umm 'not that well made'
    blame flak


    - also i did say i would release another version that is more "ut3-ified"- so keep the fixes + comments coming in and eventually youll get what u want
    - & Thanks everyone [cheers Tux]

    I was using the BugIt feature so i thought the location of the screenshot plus rotation will be printed to the screenshot.

    My UT3 works but my one PC is cut off from internet due to scare-/malware.

    It's not the first remake of Albatross for UT3!
    There's another one, DM Amiss or something like that!

    You mean stevelois' map Amissa, it's part of the UOF Mappack 3, but it's not a faithful remake but an inspired version, can be compared to Lord PorkSword's Unreal remake "Legacy" and this version could be compared to my remake, LPS does a modernized/inspired remake whereas I try to make it as faithful as I can.

    A little post to ask everyone to PLZ, give accurate feedback on this map rather than commenting on my DM-Amissa map which as nothing to do with this true remake.

    I'll try the next final when release. Keep it up m8

    - can you Delete some Private messages please- Your inbox is full !

    - @ People who have commented[thank you]
    - many changes will be made by the next release
    - please continue to find things you would like fixed
    - here is a list; [to avoid people duplicated issues]
    * Reverb volumes
    * General lighting changes
    * Blue Lights + Fire added in the tunnels [like ut2004]
    * some changes i cannot publicly announce
    * Collision on steps [will be using a system of hidden ramp mesh with rock physical material- This obtains the correct footstep sounds]
    - i recommend this approach for anyone else that has to use BV's [instead of collision on mesh] becuase BV's do not carry a default pawn foot step sound.
    * All collision changed
    * various visual tweaks
    * i remade the terrain because the original just did not import correctly

    The materials will look much more close to original if you add in the detail textures from the ucgeneric package. This is why a lot of things look "cartoony" up close, presently. I have just been scaling them and multplying them with the diffuse texture on my ports but you may know a better way to include them.

    @ NickG; Thanks for the tip
    - you can check my Material expressions for differences when the map is released; but im pretty sure you know as much as me; probably more.
    *Are there any other 2004 utx packages that would be useful?
    - maybe i should just port the whole damn game content into ut3

    - maybe you could also help explain why i am unable to convert "Unreal"
    maps to ut3.- all other games work, but with the first game the process just fails.

    Thanks

    I don't know about additional packages, for this map. I remember failing to convert a custom Unreal map before and letting it be. I think it was mostly a kind of compiled/cooked BSP which I did not know how to approach, or maybe I am confusing that with some other game.

    I tried several times yesterday to download the map on the link GameFront unsuccessfully, thank you for this new link. The map is excellent, thank you.

    I think that the ammo of the sniper rifle can be replaced by those of your LightningGun :

    Hi, I'm having a problem with the Lightning Gun... While I can see the weapon ingame before picking it up, each time I want to use it I can't see the model in my hands. Everything else works, I mean I can shot, use the zoom, etc... but the model itself just isn't there. I have installed everything like in the rar, with all the folders (CustomWeapons, Packages...).

    Any idea what's going wrong? I'd really want to add this excellent remake to my collection!

    @Firmament: He's updated the new Beta 2 version of UT2004 Lightning Gun because had a fixed issues, the mutator itself included in this map is Beta 1. You can download the new version of the mutator from the link here: http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/...s#post30541680

    PS: This map will be updated soon as TKBS announced.

    Well, I have replaced the files of the fixed lightning gun from your link with the ones in my games folder and this time the map simply crashes on start

    I guess I'll have to wait for that new version of the map much like everyone else. Thanks for your help, regardless.

    Sorry about the F__k Up guys.
    Please note:
    - The reason Lightning Gun was in the map is because i cannot code very well.
    - Making a mutator was very hard for me to do - but i think it now works
    - LightningGun 2.0 upgrade means that my DM-Albatross Broke

    - As such i have made a few changes to the DM-Albatross Map.
    - Before release i will PM everyone in this thread with a new link, i would appreciate a response / feedback asap.

    Sorry for any inconvenience this has cause.

    // and don't forget this was extremely hard and annoying for me to make.
    - all of the improvemenst and changes are based on people's feedback and my stubborn perseverance

    Okay, everything works fine, now. Thanks for your hard work, coding is hell of a task sometimes

    Just one thing, on your previous unfixed map (the one that had the integrated lightning gun weapon), I noticed that the lightning effect was totally similar to the UT2004 one. With your mutator, the said effect is more "cartoonish" and overally bigger. I believe I prefered the old UT2004 one, by far. This is my opinion, of course, and is not a big deal as the map and mutator as such are already a must have for these old UT fans

    Again, thank you!

    Smile my review will be coming soon;)

    (Cut to corner of cinema. A man in an ice-cream girl's uniform is standing in a spotlight with an ice-cream tray with an albatross on it.)

    Man: Albatross! Albatross! Albatross!

    (A customer approaches him.)

    Customer: Two choc-ices please.

    Man: I haven't got choc-ices. I only got the albatross. Albatross!

    Customer: What flavour is it?

    Man: It's a bird, innit? It's a bloody sea bird . .. it's not any bloody flavour. Albatross!

    Customer: Do you get wafers with it?

    Man: Course you don't get bloody wafers with it. Albatross!

    Customer: How much is it?

    Man: Ninepence.

    Customer: I'll have two please.

    Man: Gannet on a stick.

    Cool cool remake!

    yep, ok I’ll shutup about that already; nice remake, sky’s a little bright but I like the surrounding trees and “things that formed as the Earth cooled and erosion happened”; I remember this map and it has a killer layout and is great for 1on1 and 3 players and possibly 4 players; needs blocking volumes at ends of river as I was able to wander into oblivion; bots are decent but could be a little better.

    Albatross! Get yer Albatross here!
