  • RELEASED: SNOWREAL [1.5] - the snowboarding mod

    (updated on 25th April 2009)

    1. Name: Snowreal
    2. Version: 1.5
    3. Compatibility: PC, PS3
    4. Description:
    Snowreal is a 3rd person Snowboarding Mod for Unreal Tournament 3. Race down one of 4 massive-scale maps or show your spectacular skills in a trick competition. Switch from vast snow landscapes to a tension-packed ride over dangerous lava streams down a volcano, back to an tricky alpine slalom course.

    With version 1.5, Snowreal now features a whole new racing gametype with only one rule: Whoever reaches the finish line first, wins. To help you with this task, you are equipped with the brand new snow cannon to knock your opponents off their boards. Beware, as there are various obstacles on the course that could block your way anytime. And that's not all. There are many more features, such as: enhanced visuals, optimized splitscreen experience, and grinding! You are able to grind on anything you come across - metal, stone, wood etc.
    For fans of the good old time trial mode and trick competition, there still is the "Snowreal Time Trial" gametype.

    Have fun boarding, and may your enemy eat snow ;-)

    Version: v1.5
    Date: 	 April 24th, 2009
    Author:  Michael Buettner aka Squizmek aka Squirt(squizmek@gmail.com)
    Maps:	 Squizmek, Max_Damage
    URL:	 snowreal.blogspot.com
    
    
    
    Install:
    ------------------
    On PC: Unpack the .rar into C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\
           If you have a previous version of Snowreal installed, you might have to delete the old Snowreal Packages and Maps
           because of the new folder structure.
    On PS3: Copy the USERDATA.JAM on a USB stick. (directly on the drive, no folder structure needed) 
    	Put it into your PS3, start UT3 and import the mod.
    
    
    Play:
    ------------------
    You can start Snowreal with the included shortcut (OPTIONAL). Just make sure the shortcut points to your UT3.exe
    
    Start UT3 and select 'Snowreal Race' or 'Snowreal Time Trial' as gametype.
    Select one of the Snowreal maps and you're ready to go!
    
    PC Graphics Performance Notes:
    * Don't set your Post Processing to Intense, as the snow will be blinding you way too much.
    * Please set the World Detail to something higher than 1 as this might also render the snowreal maps super-bright.

    TRICK COMPETITION:

    Set the Scorelimit to something higher than 0. The game is over as soon as a player reaches
    the Scorelimit or the Timelimit is reached. You should set the Scorelimit to something high like 1000!
    
    
    
    Tricks:
    ------------------
    Hold your 'Duck' key and release it to start a trick jump. While in the air, hold a direction
    and press a mousebutton/shoot key(L1,R1). You can also combine this with spins. To do so, 
    hold 'Left' or 'Right' down while you start the trick jump.
    -You can combine grabs with spins.
    -You can combine forward and backward flip with a spin. Just start the flip right after takeoff!
    -Press a mousebutton/shoot key without holding any direction for additional tricks.
    -Do not skip a flip, or you will fall! Hold your firebutton pressed until the flip is done, then release!
    
    Here's a list of the tricks:
    
    Action				Trick Name		Points
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Left				Front Spin		20
    Right				Back Spin		20
    
    Alternate Fire + ...
    Front				Front Flip 		75
    Front + Backside Spin		McTwist			*
    Front + Frontside Spin		Misty Flip		*
    Back				Backflip Grab 		90
    Back + Backside Spin		Backside Rodeo		*
    Back + Frontside Spin		Frontside Rodeo		*
    Left				FrontRoll 		70
    Right				BackRoll 		100
    Neutral				DoubleGrab 		20
    
    Primary Fire + ...		these are all combinable with a spin
    Front				Rocket 			20
    Back				TailGrab 		20
    Left				Mute 			25
    Right				Method 			30 
    Neutral 			FrontGrab 		15
    
    These points will be modified by the amount of spins you did and the duration of your Grabs.
    To do the combined tricks like the McTwist, you have to do a spin-jump and start the flip EXACTLY at takeoff!

    Changelog v1.2

    - AutoCam - You don't have to worry about your camera anymore! Just tilt your Sixaxis Controller left and right and enjoy the ride.
      You can still get your Free Camera by pressing 'Fire' two times.
    - Cruise Control for the Snowboard. You don't have to hold down 'forward' all the time. Just go faster than walking
      speed and it will go full throttle by itself. Hold 'back' to reduce your speed now.
    - Bug fixed: Trick animations not showing right on client.
    - Bug fixed: Removed camera lagging when being teleported.
    - More minor bugfixes
    
    ###########################
    Changelog v1.1.5
    ###########################
    - New Map: SR-EasyRide. Feel free to use this map as a base for your own.
    - Bug fixed: Snowreal servers not showing up in the server browser.
    
    ###########################
    Changelog v1.1:
    ###########################
    New Features:
    - Remote camera - You can drop it at your feet or shoot it somewhere, then look through it by pressing right mousebutton.
    	Once you have it deployed, you can also use it from your snowboard and scorpion with your right mousebutton.
    - Mini-Map - shows you other players and checkpoints. It also points you to the next checkpoint in racing mode.
    - Bot Support - Bots will roam around randomly on the snowboard. Don't expect them to race. =)
    - Onscreen Nametags - show you who you're racing against.
    
    
    Minor Adjustments:
    - Trick system has been polished so you don't fall off your board if you release your mousebutton at last 20% of a flip.
    - When you fall off your board your character won't slide down so far anymore.
    - Changed chat color to red.
    - Disabled damage when using Towcable
    - Your camera mode won't toggle back and forth while boarding.
    - Increased the walkable slope for players.
    - Hillclimber Scorpion is much more fun to drive now. It's faster and more dangerous.
    
    
    Bugfixes:
    - SR-WhiteSlope now works for PC in multiplayer.
    - Snowboard pitch going below -90 degrees when falling along vertical slope. This would freeze the PS3.
    - Players floating in air while the board would slide away. This would freeze the PS3.
    - Fixed trick competition scoreboard on client.
