    MSU Phase 4 Best Non-FPS Mod Finalists

    Here are the Phase 4 finalists for the “Best non-FPS Mod” category in its $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest. All finalists in this category (as well as in the best FPS Mod category) are eligible to enter the Grand Finals. This competition rewards top mods created for Unreal Tournament 3 with cash and hardware prizes in four preliminary phases and a grand final.

      Congratulation to all the finalists.

      While I am happy for all finalists, I must admit that I am surprised to find Renegade-X on the list. Can Epic clearify the rules for us? The official rules says for example:

      "All Submissions must be available for free public download at the time of submission and playable with the retail version of Unreal Tournament 3 patched to the latest officially released update. "

      To my knowledge, and to the rest of the public, Renegade-X was released on 30th September, while the deadline for phase 4 was end of August

      Can Epic please explain what has happend? To me it would appear that Renegade-X have been given special treatment.

        Renegade X submitted a version for the contest before the contest deadline. This version has been publically available from fileplanet since then (you can see the download link at www.makesomethingunreal.com). This mod was judged based on the version submitted before the deadline.

          How is it public if it is not on MSUC page nor does Renegade-X team call it public release, but rather the one released now?

            It is on the MSUC page, and has been since the deadline.

              Besides a trailer, Renegade-X is not on http://www.makesomethingunreal.com/phase4.aspx , and never has been.

              But this doesn't seem to go anywhere, but I find the whole thing very weird, and I think there are other people that would agree with me..

                I just checked again. It is there, and has been since the deadline.

                  I expect, like Planetstorm, it was submitted quietly for your benefit, in order to make the thing more suitable for public consumption and to save downloading a full mod (1.1gig in our case) twice in a short time. The links to ours and Ren-X were there if you knew where to look, simply not shouted around all over the place. No conspiracy >.<

                  edit, oh, and of course congratulations to everyone!

                    Edit: Seems for some reason Renegade X is found as Ren X. When searching I searched for Renegade and found only the trailer, my bad about that at least

                      CHECK AGAIN.

                      The name is set as Ren X.

                        I beg to differ, but it really was. Unless you were looking at the front page where only the first few mods submitted where mentioned (unless you follow the link to the rest of the mods).

                        In fact, one of the reasons why I remember that it was there so clearly as soon as FPGundam updated it with all the entries was that the description for Planetstorm and RenX was somehow confused, and we got the same description as RenX.

                          Did you look in the FPS mod category? It was entered in that category as well (we judged it as non-FPS to be consistent with our criteria for which category a mod goes into, although unfortunately our criteria and the categories seem a bit dated).

                            Hmm... I'm pretty sure I see it.
