    Maps & more for kids

    I used to play Unreal Tournament 99. There were many skins, mods, and maps that were suitable for kids. They even had a paintball mod! Superhero skins, lego maps and more.

    Looking for similar for the 2004 edition. Lego maps, or maps where you are small or the room is big, video game maps like Mario or Sonic or such. Maps that kids will like. Maps that have no nudity or inappropriate things for kids. Or how about holiday maps? Christmas maps in particular, or winter maps, snow maps and so on.

    My sons are requesting good maps to play, as well as skins and mods and such. Any recommedations would be great!

    thanks.

    Hmm, inappropriate things... I doubt any UT2004 map is free of such things - at least there are weapon on all the maps, and those are definitely inappropriate to kids.

      @Wormbo: Agreed. But additional, UT2004 has no mature taunt and no gore level ability in the Settings menu, however, you do NOT download any stuffs that is inappropriate for kids.

        I'd just like to point out the issue that if you turn off gore and swearing, you still use deadly weaponry against humans and humanoid aliens/robots to kill them. The screen messages still clearly state that, just in a more polite way. You are awarded for killing people efficiently, which I think isn't a suitable thing for kids at all.

          I totally agree with Wormbo here.

          Why would you want maps for kids for a game which isn't thought to be for kids? I mean, there are some of these you are requesting, but if you worry about your kids getting exposed to the wrong material, you might want to buy them a different game.

            You can try play "Trials" Gametype.
            That Gametype only include Jumping or dodging skill , you don't kill anybody in it.
            Here's a simple video of one of the earliest map:

              Actually, most trial maps aren't an own gametype, they are "Assault" maps. If you want to find more of them, go to www.mapraider.com and type "trial" in the search tab.

                My sons already play Unreal, we have it for the Xbox, but they miss the old ut99 version where there was paintball. You also could get skins so you fought monsters and robots, not other humans.If anyone can point me to such mods and skins, or maps like I am looking for that would be great.

                    I agree with Wormbo here too.
                    Why would you want kids to play a game with violence? The game is rated M for Mature. Another pointer, the only "Unreal" games for the Xbox is Unreal Championship and Unreal Championship 2 besides other games that uses the Unreal Engine, and they are also rated M. So do yourself and the kids a favor don't let them play games that are M rated!

                      It would be a much more kid family game if someone shared a paintball mod, and skins. then my sons can shoot paint balls at robots, perhaps in a lego map. Any specif names of files suggested?

                        Yes there's a paintball mod for UT2004

                        Description: Ultimate Survival or UMS as its known is a paintball modification for UT2004. The main goal was to bring the fun of Paintball and UT2004 together.

                          Still, there's no use in complaining "why is there no paintball mod" for a game that was made to be violent. You should really think about getting a different game. I'm sure there are enough paintball games or games where you shoot monsters.

                            There's plenty to do in UT2004 that is "T" or below. My invasion RPG server is family friendly not only because my 11-year-old plays but also because I find "mature" mods to be in fact, very childish.

                            Features of my server:

                            Chat filter to block curse words in chat and in nicknames
                            Holy S***! award is replaced by Holy ****!
                            No "sexy" maps. A few maps on the server have tasteful statues/artwork however.
                            Players are on typically in the evenings.

                            http://www.gametracker.com/server_in....165.172:7777/

                            I've made or edited a few kid friendly maps.

                            Several are on my server. These you can download to your computer, but you'll need to use UT2004mi to "unzip" the compressed downloads from my redirect.

                              You got that right mate.

                              Also the "LINK" model for UT2004 can do:

                              There are some voice packs that are suitably for kids, not that those are few foul language throughout. You can check the custom voice pack links thread (made by me) to give you a clue.

                              I've made four child/teen voice packs + one voice pack by the author.
                              You can use a combination of my AnnaSophia Robb voice pack and Leslie Burke model:
