    this remembers me on the following, i was reading a preview of ut2004 (gamestar), they wrote "47 maps (40 from ut2003)". the first thing i thougt "hm only 7 new maps :/" but after this i read it again and realised it says "47 new maps (+ 40 from ut2003)" and i was just "WTF? 87maps! omfg"

      Well - The demo probably has the maps hardcoded into it.
      To add new maps would need another code change and re-compile for a feature that is not really needed.

      I predict that we will have the full game around the end of the moneth, I can live on 1 DM map until then.

        since when did we have to pay for the demo

        anyways, UT2004 DM will be 99% the same as UT2003 DM...just play UT2003 DM until the full game comes out if that is all you are interested in

            I agree, the demo gets boring quickly. Heck, I even start up a practice server just so I can find every nook and cranny of each map.

            Then again, there are about 300 people and 63 servers still playing the UT2003 demo, from gamespy stats. That's funny when you think about it.

              it doesnt matter if there is one map or two. i will devote most of my time to OnSlaught

              Now two maps for that would be ok, hehe.

                If there's one thing that should be pretty obvious by now.... It's that Epic (thankfully) doesn't pay attention to demo-suggestion threads like this.

                If they did, there would be no DM or CTF maps in the demo, and all of the servers would be IG

                  That's my point. In my area, there are a bunch of gibgames demo servers: two for deathmatch! They're actually pretty fun because the demo has two of the best maps in all of UT2K3: Antalus and Asbestos. And for some strange reason, they're always busy, unlike the full game servers.

                  Asking for one extra DM map isn't asking for much, is it? If Epic is this close to a release (assuming the full version will be within a month of the demo), then they have to have at least one other fully debugged UT2K4 DM map available, right?

                  And, like someone else already pointed out, if an extra one is added, it shouldn't be 1v1. The whole idea is to have two rotating maps that can support the same player count.

                          Yup, that be me. I tried to compete against their demo servers, but couldn't. So after two months I gave up. One of my servers is still up, even though it's not suppose to be. I wonder how long they'll keep it up without getting paid?

                          Is LeoPawnz your online nic?
