Some non-UTJB related news for you first: TheSpoonDog, that most skilled of chicken farmers, has released a beta of his new deathmatch map, XeneX. The screenies he's posted on his site are looking pretty sweet. Pick it up, play around with it, and tell Spoonie what you think. Deathmatch indeed. . .isn't that just Jailbreak without the jails and teams?

Also worth mentioning is that Caution has created an excellent write up on the virtues of DM-fane as a 1v1 map over at DireIce's place. A worthwhile read whether you be mapper or player.

Finally, some UTJB related tidbits. Mychaeel, the coder responsible for several of the mutators available for UTJB and the excellent Screen package, is working on a map database for this site. Mappers will soon be able to upload the latest info on their maps, including screenshots and download links. It's looking like this will be a valuable supplement to the services offered here. Oh, and this one really tickles my ego. hal, administrator over at da Planet, described UTJB as 'one of the top mods in all of action gaming' in his introductory posting. Take that, CounterStrike!
