    T5K proudly announces
    The Back to School "We Own Your Core" Custom Map Warfare Party

    The Back to School "We Own Your Core" Custom Map Warfare Party is brought to you by T5K, www.t5k-clan.com, and Viper Servers, www.vipers-servers.com.

    MapPack Download: Link http://www.unrealmediaservices.net/t...Pack200809.zip (1,534MB)
    Unzip to your "My Documents" folder and the "My Games/Unreal Tournament 3" folder will be correctly populated.


    When
    Saturday, September 6, 2008 starting at Noon.
    This will be an all day, all night event.


    Who
    This event is for everyone not just the players. We invite not only UT3 DM, VCTF, CTF, and WAR players, but anyone that simply wants to hang out, have some fun and laughter, or spectate the mayhem! To that end, a number of spectator slots will be available on both servers. Players and friends of the community can chat, watch, or listen in our multi-channel Ventrilo.

    Custom Warfare MapPack
    We will be providing a Warfare install mappack. This mappack will contain numerous custom Warfare maps both large and small.
    With the success of BGE's August 2nd, 2008 custom map party, we have expanded the mayhem with a 32 player server. Why? Almost everyone agreed, the large custom maps are best played 16v16!

    We are searching the mapping community for the best of the best large maps for our 32 man server. While 16v16 action is great, we will have a smaller 12v12 server for the less chaotically inclined. All maps, large, small, and in-between, will be on both servers.


    Map Selection and MapPack Testing
    Mappack testing (on T5K's test server no less) is on going and the final MapPack download is expected to be available September 4th or earlier. If you wish to participate in the testing, PM Nomadicus at www.t5k-clan.com but read this post first: http://www.t5k-clan.com/modules.php?...ewtopic&t=5294

    Special Event of the Night
    At some point during the evening, we should have a sizable crowd in Ventrilo. We will split up into two teams for a PUG style competition. Using Ventrilo, captains will be nominated and voted upon with teams chosen shortly after. Once teams are picked, the action will take place on the 32 player server with demorec turned on plus 8 spectator slots.

    We will demorec this Special Event just in case an inspired movie maker wants to create a "We Own Your Core" movie.

    Play your favorite large map early in the day and plan an amazing strat. Support your team and captain!

    Epic has Sent Doz a nice UT3 box of goodies for our T5K We Own Your Core Event
    We plan to put everyone that shows up at our event. To put there names in a Hat. Give it a good shake and pull out some Winners.
    Then I will post the peeps that Won at T5K-clan.com.
    The posted Winners will need to contact me and we will work out the shipping details

    T5K wants to Thank Epic for there Support

      Oh cool!
      Does the map list have any new maps that BGE's Warfare party didn't have? If so, which maps? (I'm trying to avoid a huge download again if I don't need it)

            There are a handful of maps that were not available for the BGE map party. Once the map list is finalized I'll see if I can get T5k to make an additional supplemental map pack that excludes any map that was at the BGE map party. Or I'll do it myself since they've already got their hands full with getting everything else ready.

            This is gonna be a blast!

                bclagge,
                A supplemental map pack is a great idea. I use a different .zip (.7z) folder structure. We might want to create a common one that is more user friendly. I'll be glad to coordinate this with you.

                Need more Maps
                I certainly am open to suggestions for more maps. See this post for a detailed list of maps (18 and counting so far): http://www.t5k-clan.com/modules.php?...ewtopic&t=5298
                Post here in this thread if I anyone wants me to consider a warfare map they like.
                The above post includes a link to the preliminary MapPack(s).

                Test Server
                These maps are on my test server including redirect. Anyone wanting to post their comments can play on this server. Look for "Nomadicus UT3 Map-Mod Test Server" in the UT3 Warfare browser. I temporarily removed the password.

                  Your servers in the list up there don't have port numbers, so I can't add them to x-fire.

                      It uses the default 7777. If that doesn't work for some reason, let me know. I'll amend the server post too. Thanks for the feedback.

                        Some of you may have already though of something like this, but I will just toss this out for some discussion or thinking about it.

                        I was thinking of a having a period of no vote map rotations, single 20 minute rounds, 1 point wins, with standard overtimes. That way all the maps get played. Everyone gets a taste of each one. Then a longer period of voting. Then another period of no vote rotation, etc.

                        That may also be good for the mappers as well to recieve constructive feedback from more than just the usual suspects.

                          Good to see you oldkawman1. You are Bobba_Novis?! We played just last night. Cool.
                          Not a bad idea. I'll run it by the others. Thanks

                            This worked really well for our VCTF party. As long as people knew that voting was coming, and when it was coming, they didn't seem to mind the automatic rotation.
